"The raiders of Muscovy were feared for both the speed with which they came and went and ferocity while in battle."


  • These mounted raiders can set fire to structures and make effective looters and skirmishers. They seek out resource structures to loot. Raiders of Muscovy benefit greatly from covering units as they wreak havoc.
  • Clears out resources better than raiders
  • All towers except crossbowtower and flametower
  • Pikemen and towers can kill easily the Raiders of Muscovy

Offensive Strategy

  • I keep 2 of these in my army. Because they burn buildings they can attack a building for 3 seconds and move on to the next before the building is even 1/4 damaged. If you have a lot of the defenses knocked out or if you are assaulting a keep and have most of their defenses are busy unleash the dogs of war and let them clear out their resources while you keep on clearing that path to the keep. Just remember when using them never assign them to attack a target, always point them in the direction you want, otherwise they stay on the building until its gone.
  • (another player) I have 4 of these in my army,i keep them together and have them attack towers once the tower is occupied killing my other units,then they set the tower on fire,and after that the fire keeps burning until tower is destroyed or battle ends. Or i have them keep attacking the tower until its destroyed.
  • (Another player 2)
  • I keep 3 of them and I do not use them to loot.I deploy them one by one to make sure they do not get orders jumbled because I use them to attack universities.Sometimes also resources.

Defensive Strategy

  • Being very fast and strong, as well as seeking out siege, it can be used to defend your castle. Use in a lvl 4 guard house.
  • The Raiders of Muscovy will actually search out and light siege engines on fire.
