Franks: Battle Axeman


Each Battle Axeman adds 1% to the Warrior skill. The bonus is added at the begging of each round, depending on the amount of Battle Axemen that survived the previous one.


If at the beginning of round 1 you have 10 Battle Axeman that are alive, they will give you a bonus of 10 * 1 = 10% on the Warrior skill.If in this round of battle 4 of them perish, in the next round you will get only a 6% bonus form them, because 6 * 1 = 6%

Apart from giving a bonus, the Battle Axemen also increase the maximum bonus that can be acquired, over the limit presented by the skills.The limit becomes 50% and it can be achieved either by a combination of bonus from Skill and units or by units only.


If you have the Warrior skill developed to Advanced this brings you 25% on Warrior. If you also have at least 25 Battle Axemen that are alive, they will give you an additional 25%. This way the skill bonus reaches the maximum of 50%. Another option might be that you don't want to spend skill points on the Warrior skill. In that case you can achieve the maximum with units only. For this purpose you need at least 50 living Battle Axemen to reach the limit of 50% (50 * 1 = 50%). After developing the special upgrade of this unit, the limit of the skill Warrior is further increased to 60%. This percentage can be achieved by using one of the 2 schemes listed above.

Please note that regardless of the amount of surviving Battle Axemen, at the beginning of each round, the bonus for this skill can't exceed the mentioned limit of 50% (60% if the spcial upgrade of the special unit is developed);


If at the beginning of a round you have 100 surviving Battle Axemen the bonus gained will not be equal to 100 * 1 = 100%. The bonus will be limited to the mentioned limit of 50% (60% if the special upgrade of the special unit is developed);
