Troops - Tier 1 - Tier 2 - Tier 3 - Tier 4

War Elephants are a Tier 4 Cavalry unit that can be unlocked after getting a Lv. 21 Academy, Siege Tower and Cavalry Defense Lv 10 Research. They have even more attack, defence and health than their Tier 3 predecessors. War Elephants have average movement speed, and are the fastest Tier 4 Troop. They also have the same survivability, more power and a larger load, allowing them to survive longer and gain more resourses on resourse tiles. Due to their immense strength and ferociousness, War Elephants are feared in the heat of combat and are less likely to die than other Cavalry units.

  • Very high power increase for the Empire.
  • Average movement speed.


  • Difficult to train as they require a level 21 academy, and most Combat Research.
  • Take much longer to train than any other tier.
  • Weak vs Infantry.
