There are several types of troops available in the game:
- Guardsmen — They have special attack bonuses against monsters.
- Specialists — They have special attack bonuses against other players. Note that when fighting an enemy player, the base attack of your specialists is doubled.
- Engineer corps — They have special attack bonuses against fortifications.
- Monsters — They have higher base attack and health stats.
- Mercenaries — Different mercenaries grant special attack bonuses against either other players or monsters.
You can study the troops available for hire in the Army tab on the main menu panel.
Each troop type has three unique traits indicated below its name. Traits determine both the vulnerabilities and unique attack bonuses of a particular troop type when fighting other troop types.
