Xuanjia Heavy Cavalry Unit Guide



Xuanjia Heavy Cavalry

Unit Details

  • Season 19: Dragonrise
  • Acquisition: Seasonal Challenges
  • Type: Cavalry - Special
  • Era: Golden Era
  • Icon: Unit Icon

The king and his armies had been fighting their enemies to the north for the better part of a year. The enemy cavalry subjected them to repeated attacks, never once breaking their watertight formation. On that day, the king was devising a plan to defeat the enemy within the walls of his camp when he saw one of his most loyal generals leading a crowd of horses in attack, wielding long iron spears and wearing black armour. The king was overjoyed, and dubbed them the Xuanjia Heavy Cavalry. His general proposed fighting fire with fire - they would use the tactics of their enemy against them. The king had utter faith in his general's words and the next time two armies clashed, the king led the Xuanjia Cavalry deep within the enemy's ranks, vanquishing them once and for all.

The Xuanjia Heavy Cavalry is lightning-fast, riding expertly trained warhorses onto the battlefield to deliver unassailable charges. This Unit utilises the speed and force of its mounts to approach enemies swiftly and unleash a devastating attack. They use spears to penetrate enemies and can quickly break through enemy formations, causing chaos and casualties.

The Unit’s skills allow them to charge at full speed, become immune to crowd control, and launch several rounds of attacks.

Train the Xuanjia Heavy Cavalry to overcome any obstacle, reduce cooldown times, and reduce damage taken from foes.
