Spearman Units[edit]

Unit Name Faction Description
Spearman Map Sprite.png Pikeman Cherrystone Kingdom Once fully trained, each and every Cherrystone Pikeman is taken to the sacred Sage Woods in eastern Cherrystone. Here, they're taught to harvest wood from ancient trees and craft the spears they will take into battle. When not in combat, they maintain the woods, nurturing the trees for future generations.[1]
Dreadspear Map Sprite.png Dreadspear Felheim Legion Once raised, Dreadspears are sent to scavenge deep within the Frozen Forest. The forest serves as a graveyard of sorts for the many large beasts that roam Felheim's ice expanses. The Dreadspears look for bones among the snow that might be fashioned into jagged spears.[1]
Heavensong Spearman Map Sprite.png Heronguard Heavensong Empire The Heronguard are trained on the Scorched Beach, where they're taught to spear lightning-fast sailfish without disturbing the water. They are almost as dangerous with the butt of their spears as they are with their points.

The Heronguard wear the mask of their avian namesake as a mark of their speed and grace.[1]
Floran Spearman Map Sprite.png Stabber Floran Tribes Beginning as saplings, Floran Stabbers craft a spear from the bones of each beast they successfully hunt. Ever on the prowl for bigger and more fearsome quarry, Stabbers must craft their 10th spear before they are accepted into the Floran army. Stabbers often decorate their spears with the leaves and flowers they lose whilst hunting a foe.[1]

Critical Hit[edit]

When they're adjacent to another allied Spearman while attacking they'll perform a critical hit. A Spearman's crit has the standard multiplier of ×1.5.

Strategy[edit]

“Whilst slow, a Spearman excels as a defensive unit, particularly when used as part of a wall formation. thoughtful positioning of a Spearman is key to success. They are also great for attacking structures, though their slow speed can make closing in on said structures challenging.”
Codex

Their spears give them a particular advantage over attacking beasts, so the Spearman can hold its own against Dogs and the much more expensive Knight. They Critical Hit when positioned alongside another Spearman, giving them strength in numbers. A Spearman wall can be a formidable defense![2] Their low movement speed can be offset in part by using Wagons.
