Rise of Kingdoms Archer Troops

RoK Elite Chu-Ko-Nu Archer Troop
  • RoK Archer Troops tend not to be too popular in the game due to high cavalry vulnerability.
  • A high-speed cavalry march is very difficult for Archer Troops to combat.
  • Moreover, most RoK Archer Commanders need a lot of development to maintain a decent march.
  • Nevertheless, Archer Troops can deal massive damage with their marches as soon as the Commander achieves expertise, it is definitely worth the cost!
