Light Cavalry are one of the two types of Cavalry Units that can be recruited from the Barracks. As one of the base units, they are immediately available from the Barracks as soon as the game begins.

As lightly-armored and swift units, they are able to wreak havoc on more lightly-armored Units. They are particularly effective when combating enemy Archer units, but are weak against Spear Infantry.


Light Cavalry make a good choice for quick raids with relatively high Speed and a higher Loot Capacity than most other Military Units. They also make the best choice against armies with lots of Ranged Units, as their damage multiplier allows them to deal lots of damage to an enemy's Archers.
