Military Academy – The diploma is made of steel

When we reach Town-Level, construction of the Military Academy becomes possible. This is the place to go for all settlers eager to go to battle using a Hammer or a Lance and it can be upgraded once.

At Town-Level we can recruit Guards with a Lance and a Mail Hauberk, strong defenders which taunt enemies before they reach your fortifications, and Smashers attackers in Leather Armor which use their hammers to shatter fortifications.

City-Level enables recruitment of their most advanced versions, the Defender and the Demolisher, both wearing a thick Plate Cuirass.

As before, the upgraded building also provides additional training’s slots.

This is the last recruitment building in The Settlers. Units can now either be used defensively by e.g. assigning them to a specific Keep, Castle or Fortress. Or we can form them into an army via a Garrison.

With their individual specializations they’re fit for different tasks, making mixed armies versatile and able to cope with different situations.

Military School – Even our soldiers need to go to school

After the Training Ground, the Military School is the second recruiting place we can build. It’s focused solely on close-combat units using swords or axes.

It can be constructed at Village-Level and upgraded twice to recruit more advanced units.

At Village-Level we can train and recruit Swordsmen who just require a sword. And if we we’re planning any sieges we can use axes to recruit Axemen, who are able to climb walls.

Town-Level gives us access to the more advanced armored Knight who additionally needs a Mail Hauberk.

Finally, at City Level, we can recruit mighty Paladins which require a Plate Cuirass and fearless Berserkers wearing Refined Leather Armor.

While we can order the training of a certain amount of units in advance, the recruits will have to wait for the required equipment to be stored at the Military School before they can begin their training.

Upgrading the building will also unlock more training spots, helping you train more soldiers simultaneously.

Armor Smithy – A good defence is the best offence

Most people prefer some form of protection when going into combat. Our settlers, surprisingly, are no exception. Therefore, the construction of an Armor Smithy makes a lot of sense.

For such advanced forging techniques, our settlement has to be at Town Level ().

At this level, the Armor Smithy has 3 workers, able to produce Mail Hauberks.

After upgrading the Armor Smithy to City Level (), another worker will join and we can create the massive Plate Cuirasses which require valuable steel.

With these shiny new armor pieces we can recruit Knights, Paladins, Guards and Defenders – expensive but extremely capable military units – at least as long as we also produce their preferred weapons.
