Age of Empires Castle Siege Wiki

"A cast of Islamic warriors whose prowess on the battlefield won them land and political power in expanding sultanates."


  • Mamluks are the greatly feared cavalry unit of the Saracens. Mamluks are very fast and do a lot of damage at range by throwing swords. Deploy them against enemy defenses or troops.
  • Lowest stats of all cavalry units.
  • Fastest unit of the game.
  • Ranged attack.
  • Mamluk can be killed easily by spearmen.

Offensive Strategy

  • Possibly the best unit for picking off buildings around the map due to high speed and a ranged attack. Mamluks are perhaps best used to skirmish at the beginning of a battle, killing defense units and buildings.
  • They also make excellent siege weapon defenders.
  • Mamluks are good in destroying emplacements. Make a way for them to the emplacements and they will destroy and come back within seconds
  • Always hit and run with mamluks (run the Mamluks away from troops for a little while and then turn back to hit them with the Mamluk's attack, and then run away again).
  • Don't use Mamluks against towers.
  • Mamluks can effectively loot if they have adequate cover.

Defensive Strategy

  • Good in defense for high speed and attack. Very useful to take out Trebuchets the later the battle goes.
  • Keep in mind that aggressive stance Mamluk defenders are easily picked off by spearmen at the start of a battle.
  • In the maze spawn-block style castle probably the best guard house choice due to their seriously fast speed.
