Liberating the lands to your selected leader’s name will cost you the lives of a lot of good units but it can also slow you down as future battles cannot be won without a proper army. To make your army stronger, it is best to recruit more units into your rebellion before starting an invasion on enemies’ outposts or settlements.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to recruit units in Total War: PHARAOH.
How to Recruit Units in Total War: PHARAOH
Both fighting and winning wars will cost you several lives of units in your army, Each unit type comes with a certain number of units within that strengthen your army overall. For instance, having a Militia Unit can give you 120 soldiers who will stand strong on the battlefield. As the unit fights in the war, the green bar shown above in your army section will start decreasing and you will lose the unit when all of its units die.
Now, it is crucial to recruit units from time to time because you never know when you get raided by a nearby outpost or settlement of enemy and the only way you will be able to stand strong on your defenses is by having a strengthened and healthy army. To recruit the units, you need to first be at one of your outposts or settlements that you built or liberated and then select the ‘Recruit’ option in the army section at the bottom of the screen.
It will open the Recruitment Panel from which you will be able to recruit either Native Units or Faction Units. Native Units are local to the respective land you are currently on and the Faction Units are trained soldiers from your very selected faction. Both Native and Faction Units will have certain categories of units from which you can select to recruit. However, selecting each unit will cost you a certain amount of Food resources along with Bronze (Faction Unit only).
Native Units are cheap to recruit as they only demand food but they also remain for a short time on the field as they go down quickly on the battlefield. If you play your cards right, you might be able to push your recruited Native Units for 2 – 3 fights without recruiting more. Faction Units have more impact on your army but they cost bronze along with food which are the two most useful resources in Total War: PHARAOH.
