This is awesome. I wish this were a feature and not a bug.

Edit: this can be done with the Atonement Home City Card, are you sure you did not send this?

Hi guys, thanks for the report. We’re currently tracking the issue of the Atonement card enabling the training of Repentant Yojimbos in the stables, they should only be trainable from the Monastery.

This not only happens when sending atonement (i didnt send the card in the replay). But the solution should fix both anyway

Wait, I thought this was a feature.

I couldn’t get this to happen myself, I guess I have to try harder :slight_smile:
Will definitely look into it happening without sending the card too.

It’s a bug not a feature this time :rofl:


The Wiki stated it as a feature Yojimbo | Age of Empires Series Wiki | Fandom actually, which caused me some confusion. Honestly it SHOULD be a feature anyway. Yojimbo aren’t very good late game but having access to them for the Japanese would open up some options. Also its cool.

More civs should have mercenaries recruitable via barracks/stables imo to open up more merc playstyles so its not just Swedes that get the mercenary monopoly.

yeah the mercenaries are random, so i had to try it like 10 times too. Too bad you cant see what units you can train in the replay. In Dm tg on Pampas sierras it works quite consistently though

This happened to me alot ! in great plains too !
