Trivia[edit]

  • Picking up heavy armor makes the Peasant faster, as it increases his Movement Speed by about 42%
  • The Milita has the second highest armor rating (4-10) of all combat units together with the Mountain Giant. Only the Knight has a higher armor rating (5-11).

Version History[edit]

Balance Patch History
Patch Version Balance Changes
1.15 Buff Militia are now level-1 units, instead of level-2 units. This causes them to give less experience when killed.
1.13 Nerf Militia can now only be created from a player's starting Town Hall, but they can still be created from any of the player's Keeps or Castles.
