If the High Armor target gets like (random number) 1 damage, twice as much is still only 2 damage yet the 10-50 AP damage remains untouched and thus the vast majority of the damage will come from AP-Damage. This confers a certain resistance to magical damage. The same applies to stuff like the new Luminark, which is retardedly overpowered giving you the power of a light wizard for a measly 125 cost increase. It's also hardly a new trend, as anyone who ever played Shogun 2 can attest to. In mp price balances things. Despite the Reiksgaurd's impressive armor stat, their poor melee defense causes them to receive consistent damage when engaged in prolonged combat.

Knights of the Blazing Sun Well-armoured and resplendent, the Knights deliver a fierce and destructive charge. And to give that a couple more specific numbers. Do not think this is denigrating them.

Not sure if this is an MP or SP post but here is how I see if from a MP perspective. So is Grim & Grave p2win ? Making seperate stats for mp and sp would be the thing that messes up things... You can build whatever you want in sp. There's no good use for shock cavalry where that damage resistance and bit of melee difference can be more valuable than increased movement speed, increased charge, increased melee attack, higher damage, high magic resistance, and +12% more damage if you use a brightwizard too.

Any time you find yourself thinking Reiksguard would be better than KOTBS, you would be better off using neither. Don't derail threads with off-topic memes or controversy. 2 points3 points4 points 4 years ago (1 child). They are faster, better charge, better damage, better attack, fire damage, magic resistance... All they trade is a little melee defense which is not really relevant as they are shock cavalry, and a bit of armor which means they are a little less tanky. Price does not matter that much.
