Mercenaries

From Arcanum Illyria

Jump to: navigation, search

While the Mercenaries aren't really a race, they are treated as such. In actuality, they are units hired out to several human or humanoid factions, with no allegiance to one of their own. Mercenaries do not identify with any race either, rather standing by their profession and skills alone.

Units

Having such flexible loyalties, mercenaries are hired by various races and factions. They have stronger spear units than other playable races, while all other classes of mercenary units are weaker than the other playable units.
