Garrison troops

Users who are viewing this thread

A strong garrison in your castle is a great idea, since they're the first line of defense against an enemy that chooses to attack. I've found after you start getting castles, especially after the second one, it becomes a fine balancing act between spending too much money and losing your castles. This effectively becomes the core mechanic to the game, with home management more important than battles once you're a liege lord.

I pored through data for the available troops and decided on a list of the ten best garrison troops. I operated under the vague assumption that archers and infantry would be the best types to have because the cavalry won't get their horses, and that polearms are very difficult to use in the crowded battles atop the castle walls.

What are your favorite troops to keep in the garrison? And how do you keep that balance of too few troops versus too much upkeep?
