Like all Spearmen, Klackon Spearmen are a very basic combat unit which doesn't pose much of a threat to any serious opponent, though they can become a little stronger through Experience. On the other hand, these Spearmen enjoy the Klackons' racial bonus of +2, making them significantly harder to kill. As a result, they can be a strong match for other low-tier Normal Units. They also possess better Resistance than other Spearmen. Unfortunately, Klackon Spearmen are also much more expensive to build.
Klackon Spearmen require an Upkeep Cost of only 1 to maintain. Failure to pay these costs will result in the unit being disbanded automatically.
Unit Properties Edit
Physical Description Edit
Klackon Spearmen are a group of bipedal insect-like creatures. They have thick, dark-colored carapaces covering their bodies, forming a natural armor plating that is as strong as steel. They each hold a spear - a long wooden pole tipped with a steel point - which is used for stabbing at enemies within hand-to-hand combat range.
Attack Properties Edit
Klackon Spearmen initially possess a very weak Melee Attack, which will only be threatening to other low-tier Normal Units. It gets a little stronger with Experience.
Each Spearman makes a Melee Attack with a strength of 1. With no additional bonuses this gives each Spearman an average damage output of only 0.3, or rather, there is only a 30% chance for each Spearman to inflict any damage on the opponent. This is before the target gets to make Defense rolls to deflect this damage. Therefore the Klackon Spearmen are highly unlikely to get through any armor at all.
Mitigating this slightly, a fully healed unit contains 8 Spearmen, so there are 8 separate chances to inflict damage. This still isn't much, so the Klackon Spearmen's Melee Attack should not be counted upon to do any significant amount of damage to anything but the weakest enemy units, at least until they gain some Experience.
Defense Properties Edit
Thanks to their racial bonus, Klackon Spearmen possess a Defense score of 4 - making them the best-armored Spearmen in the game, and better armored than most non-Klackon Normal Units to boot. They can block an average of 1.2 points of Damage from any attack. This makes it much harder for low-tier Normal Units to kill them.
Still, as with most Normal Units, each Klackon Spearman possesses only 1 Hit Point. In other words, each point of Damage inflicted on this unit will kill off one of its figures.
As a result, Klackon Spearmen will be killed off slower than other Normal Units, but will still die when attacked by powerful opponents.
Other Properties Edit
Basic Strategy Edit
Still, being sturdier than all other Spearmen, Klackon Spearmen can last a surprisingly long time in battle. They may still struggle to inflict damage on other units, but at least will hold their ground - allowing other Klackon units to flock in and gang up on an enemy.
A horde of Spearmen can gang up on a stronger unit in order to whittle it down. Fortunately, Klackon Spearmen are one of the cheaper units in the game, and thus hordes of them are not too difficult to acquire.
Ability Overview Edit
The Klackon Spearmen unit has no abilities listed in its unit details panel. It has to rely only on its primary combat properties during battle.
Experience Table Edit
The following table illustrates how Klackon Spearmen improve as they gain Experience. Any properties that are not listed here do not improve with Experience in any way.
|Level Icon||Level Name||EP||Melee||To Hit||Defense||Resist||Hits|
|Recruit||0 - 19||1||30%||4||5||1|
|Regular||20 - 59||2||30%||4||6||1|
|Veteran||60 - 119||2||30%||5||7||1|
Average Damage Output Edit
The table below details the average amount of damage that each Figure in a Klackon Spearmen unit will deliver with each type of attack, based on Experience Level. It can be used in comparison to the target's Defense rating to figure out the chance of hurting that target.
The Construction Cost of this unit is 20.
Klackon Spearmen may appear for hire as Mercenaries. They may already have some Experience on being hired, and several units may be hired simultaneously. Hiring these units requires a certain cost in Gold that depends on many different factors. Klackon Spearmen Mercenaries have the same Upkeep Cost as a normally-constructed unit.
