Classes: Cavalry

The Cavalry classes specialise in Horseback Riding to scatter lines and hunt down skirmishers with their mighty steeds.

Have your pick at one of these well-dressed cavalrymen. Hussars sport a rather flamboyant uniform which won't come of much use in the field of battle but their increased damage with swords while riding on horseback and increased speed will certainly come in handy while playing this class. Discharge your pistol at the general direction of the enemy, equip your sword and charge away. All while well-dressed. Show them great showmanship with swords on horseback!

Carbineers on horseback. Cuirassiers & Dragoons excel at the use of this firearm while mounted and combined with the versatile mobility their steed provides, they can quickly traverse the battlefield, take careful pickings of the enemy and retreat back in support of your lines. Well trained Carabineers can excel just as much as a hussar in melee combat albeit the advantages traits provide. Master the art of horseback riding as those brave gentlemen once did. You’ll have a much easier time doing so should you give a quick read to what’s going to follow. Mounting, dismounting, putting your steed on the gallop, firing from horseback and various other aspects related to combat.
