Considering that one of the civ variants (Jeanne) already announced several of its unique units and mechanics in a teaser, one might wonder what kind of new units or Landmarks the Chinese civilization variant would have, or at least what they think before to reveal the teaser for this civ.
Well, this is from another post that I commented on previously (Building idea: replace the 3 pagodas with the Porcelain Tower), but I think it is good to theorize more, since in the future even if they do not add these unique units in their output, just like with the new units that some civs received, it could happen to Future with the base Chinese Civ as the variant Civ. Anyway, some ideas:
It has the Heaven’s Blessing power, which provides 6 HP/s automatic regeneration to all your units for 5 seconds. Cowdown 5 minutes.
Allows to activate every 2 minutes “Gong Alert”, which will spawn 2 shaolin monks, who fight with their fists, have high attack speed and high speed but limited life time, and only for defensive purposes.
Produce imperial troops, based on unique units from different dynastic periods. One of the options includes the Mandarin Army, which includes 2 LANG XIAN, and 3 Rattan Soldiers (*new Chinese unique units).
- Shaolin Squad (Only if Song was active).- Produces 5 shaolin monks with no time limit. #### 100w
- Steppe Squad (Only if Yuan was active).- Produces 5 Elite Mangudais. 180f 180g
- Mandarin Duck Squad (Only if Ming was active).- Produces 2 LANG XIAN, 2 Ratan Soldiers and 2 Spearmen, 400f 400g
Acts as a special Pagoda, which supplies all resources, but can house 9 relics. It doesn’t do more. It saves you from building pagodas, which require going to the Yuan Dynasty, and on top of that you can only use 3.
“Lan Xian”.- Special Spearman with a tree-spear and heavy armor. Has a Bonus against Cavalry, but slow attack and slow speed. Has 100% more range than a normal spearman and can slow the units he hit.
HP: 180, Atk: 12, Arm: 4/4, Spd: 1.1, Rof: 2.13, Bonus: +32 vs Cav.
“Shaolin Monk”.- Infantry that count as religious unit, you can only produce them with the Shaolin Temple “Gong Alert” ability. Has great speed and a fast attack, but a short life span. Count as “shock infantry” as has a bonus against artillery and ranged units. Weak aggainst Spearmans.
HP: 90-110-130, Atk: 7-8-9, Arm: 0/0, Rof: 0.8, Spd: 1.5, Rof: 2.13, Bonus: +5/+7/+9 vs ranged units, +10 vs siegue units
“Rattan Shielder”.- Heavy infantry with a shield and a sword. Has great rank armor but mid melee armor, and the rest of the stats are similar to the Men at arm. Produced by the Mandarin Duck Squad.
HP: 180, Atk: 14, Spd: 1.1, Arm: 3/5, Rof: 1,375.
Any other Chinese units, perhaps from Aoe III or another game that you would like in the Chinese variant civ?
