“While their shots do little to enemy buildings, these troops are experts at dealing with enemy foot troops. These unique Korean troops deal more damage!”

Hwarang is a level 3 Korean unique Ranged Infantry unit unlocked in Iron Age. Its predecessor is Bowman and can be upgraded to Elite Hwarang. This Korean unique unit replaces Composite Bowman. It is upgraded in level 3 Blacksmith.

General Information[]

  • Like all ranged infantry, Hwarang can kill enemy infantry easily and quickly, as they have 4 times the damage to enemy infantry.
  • Hwarang aren't efficient against enemy cavalry and buildings.
  • Hwarang are ranged units and can destroy buildings over walls.

  • If there are enemy units nearby, Hwarang would attack them.
  • As a Korean unique unit; the Hwarang has 40% more damage than the standard Ranged Infantry.

Historical Description[]

Chosen from Korean families of good morals for their youth and beauty, the Hwarang were not originally military in nature. They were more a group of young noblemen trained to excel physically and spiritually. By the time of the Three Kingdoms (approximately 75 BC to 1100 AD), they had become the warriors of the Silla Dynasty. The Hwarang were trained to use sword and to fight on horseback, but achieved pre-eminence in archery.

Attacking Strategies[]

  • Hwarang has low health; making them vulnerable to defenses. Use Heavy Infantry as meat shields to protect the Hwarang.
  • Hwarang is cheap and can be used to set off hidden enemy traps.
  • Use Hwarang to protect heavy infantry from other infantry so your Heavy Infantry won't get distracted.
  • Since Hwarang can deal more damage to foot troops, bringing some along with Heavy Infantry and/or Heavy Cavalry will help deal with pesky defending foot troops!
  • Make sure to keep the Hwarang behind your 'meat shields' or away from danger.

Defensive Strategies[]

  • Hwarang can be used as good Alliance Troops. One example is that they can shoot over walls to attack troops of the attackers forcing the troops to destroy the wall to kill them. Another thing is that they're good against other Heavy Infantry.
