Grail Reliquae is a Bretonnia melee infantry unit. The interred remains of Knights are defended violently by those whose existence gives them purpose.

Description[edit | edit source]

Many bands of pilgrims cart around a Grail Reliquae wherever they go, the corpse of a departed Knight resting at its centre. A Reliquae's exterior is a gaudy melange, adorned with trinkets gathered from many Grail Knights from across all corners of the realm. The pilgrims devote themselves to this makeshift, portable shrine, supplicating themselves before it as if it were a living Grail Knight, praying for its blessing. To pilgrims, the Reliquae is the ultimate icon of their devotion to both the Lady of the Lake and her Knights, from which the chosen amongst them can preach their creed. There is never a shortage of listeners for these demagogues either, for at each town or village the common people flock to the Reliquae so that they might hear, in graphic detail, the latest tales and deeds of the heroic Knight who unintentionally leads the procession.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

  • Frenzy: Units with frenzy cause more damage while their Icon stat morale.pngleadership is high.
  • Magical Aura: This unit is surrounded by one or more magical auras that either support nearby friends or harm its foes.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Icon of Devotion: Immunity to psychology and +16 leadership in a nearby radius

Blessing of the Lady: +20% Physical Resistance for self

Because off its aura buffs, this unit is useful for keeping near your front line. It will ensure that the nearby peasant infantry won't rout as quickly. This is a good choice to bring when you want your front line to be more durable or otherwise want your infantry to perform better. It is obviously a target for archers and flying units however.
