I’ve been playing as the Burmese recently and just can’t figure them out. In particular, the Arambai just seems…bad. They have high damage, sure, but their low accuracy makes every engagement a dice roll. Not to mention that they’re pretty frail, so poorly timed misses can lead to losing units pretty quickly. Any tips?
Don’t try to hit individual units. Aim for a large group of clumped-up units. They do full damage to any target they hit, so they will do a lot of damage to a relatively large area. They’re basically a more mobile version of the Onager, but not as extreme.
So would you recommend setting them to attack-move, rather than focus firing?
Honestly, I don’t know. It’s really based on the situation, I suppose.
It doesn’t matter if you focus fire a unit among a clumped group. If you focus fire a straggler unit, yes it’s huge waste of dps.
But yeah it’s always better to attack move with arambai I guess.
Don’t use them in low numbers, they do wayy better than most units when they reach a critical mass, especially with the elite upgrade, and they have soo good synergy with the Burmese Hussars with Manipur cavalry.
