UU’s - Here are some quick descriptions of the Unique Units
Frontiersman= Now these units are good to build. They can heal units on the battlefield.
Atlatl Thrower= A cool unit that is well rounded. It has a high rate of attack but low range.
Assyrian Bowmen= These units only are beaten in range by the siege units and they have good attack. They are very weak if they do not have units protecting them.
Druid= These are cool units now that can heal. Countered by LI. They are built at the barracks and cost a lot more.
Dragon Archer= A well rounded archer that has area of effect damage.
Royal Elephant= A cavalry unit slightly faster than infantry with range.
Barbarian= A speedy little infantry great for raiding.
Hoplite= A monstrous unit with high health that is great for defending against the rush.
Bola Thrower= This unit is similar to the Aztecs however it is slightly stronger and more expensive.
Samurai= Hmm, what do these units do? LoL, JK, these guys are similar to normal infantry just they make you laugh they attack so fast.
Hwarang= A light raiding unit.
Quetzal Warrior= The cheapest unit in the game and one that is great at being massed. It is also great at being kill because it is so weak health wise.
Legionnaire= A nasty little unit great for the rush for it has high attack but low health.
Spahi= The biggest unit so far in the game this guy is just mammoth in health. His expense is appropriately high as well however.
