Might I inquire as to why?

Hahaha there will be no namechanges.

Haha we used different names for the units internally before we settled on names and we're still in habit of using those old names. I get confused as to what we use in the game ;)... Always have to remind myself to not call the Zen-Master "Instantkiller" or the Frosthammer "Hammerguy" :monkey: . You'll have to excuse me for not getting the units names right once in a while :P.

Whoops! My bad guys. I got confused for a second there. I've always gotten the two names mixed up. Had a brainfart for a second and thought I had gotten it wrong this whole time, haha :oops:

I've reverted my changes. The actual game labels them Swordsmen, so Swordsmen they shall be!

UPDATE:

• Updated the entries for the Swordsman, Catapult, Terra Cotta Warriors, Arrow Rain and Hammer of Thor to reflect the recent patch's changes.

• Updated the guide so that it now covers the Mac and PC version of the game (which, to my knowledge, has the same values as the PS3 version)

Once I obtain my copy of the game on PC, I will go back and update the more specific values, such as possible changes to the Mind Control and Yin Yang charts.

PS: I think its awesome that I can update this guide as the game changes. When you buy a guide for a game at a store, you may often find that the stats they have are not up to date with a game's most recent changes (via patches or last minute additions). In short: All hail the power of the Internet!

Anyway, now that the PC/Mac version is (pretty much) here, I'll be going off of that version of the game as far as future updates go. And if you happen to be playing that version, and see a player named <--JL-->, that would be me :monkey:

Update:

• Rewrote one of the Viking's Truisms, revised another.

• Reworded part of the descriptions for the Catapult and Heal spell.

• Updated the entries for the Boulder and Dragon spells so that it indicates which button you should press (depending on the platform you are playing on) to make it jump/breathe fire.

I don't really consider this a strategy guide but more of a comprehensive encyclopedia for the game ;) . I among others appreciate all the hard work you've done regarding the specifics of the units+spells, it definitely helps with developing theories/strategies to counter certain factions' tactics. Thanks for keeping it up-to-date!
