Strategy Edit

Spear Throwers come in battalions of ten and are somewhat expensive, but worth their cost. They are quite a unique unit because they have the advantages of pikemen but at range, so they can be used to kill cavalry and monsters from a distance. They are great for covering units that are very vulnerable to trample damage, stopping an enemy cavalry charge before it can reach you. For this reason, they should not be used to replace Yeomen Archers since they aren't good at dealing damage against infantry but should be used alongside them. Their Mighty Spears ability can allow them to be effective against other units too, even if just to slow them down by knocking them to the ground.
