Everytime I go berbers, I want to monk rush. Then I realize that I am missing both sanctity AND block printing, which means my monks let enemies get close, and then when they are close, they murder my monks.
I know berbers shouldn’t have it all. They shouldn’t be given more than one legitimate strategy with camels. But it feels so awful having my monks K.O.d so hard. Compare them to saracen monks. Its disgusting how well saracen monks do compared to berbers.
I want block printing and sanctity so bad, so that my monks can at least snag enemies. That said, there is one monestary tech that berbers could do without. Herbal medicine could get DELETED and i wouldn’t care at all, cause of berber healing passive from their monks.
That said, I’d love to see ANY light cavalry/heavy archer civ that has decent monks with a full tech tree, not including herbal medicine. Best civ that even comes close to this description are byzantines, but they are not a light-cav/cav-archer civ.
And then of course there are the spanish, but conqs are not true cav archers.
On other notes, notice how FEW civs are lacking herbal medicine? They all have it. Also majorly disgusting Sigh… At least vikings dont get herbal. Civs that get passive healing dont deserve herbal medicine. >:(
