Mongolian Builds
« on: March 04, 2014, 09:48:58 PM »
Ok so before you look at these builds, bare in mind that they are not necessarily the most efficient or OP classes. It is more based on authenticity and role play, which is what sets it apart from the regular builds. If this is overlooked it kind of defeats the point of playing it in this style.

Just to point out that with the Mongolian builds that what makes them unique is that they all have a horse. This is just to emulate what they were like back in the day!

1. Mongolian Swordsman -
Spoiler

Main weapon - N/A
Sidearm - Almain Falchion, or any other flachion that is curved.
Shield - Welsh Buckler
Armour - Thick Winter Hose, Winter Mail Gambeson (any colour, just not *too* bright)
Helmet - Bear helmet (Folded cloth hood, any colour)
COA - Something that blends into the armour as to not see it

This class is a light warrior. Designed to be more mobile on and off of the horse.

2. Mongolian Spearman -
Spoiler


Main weapon - Corseque (No other spear)
Sidearm - Almain Falchion, or any other flachion that is curved.
Shield - Welsh Buckler
Armour - Thick Winter Hose, Winter Mail Gambeson (any colour, just not *too* bright)
Helmet - Bear helmet (Folded cloth hood, any colour)
COA - Something that blends into the armour as to not see it

This class is a lower rank than the Mongolian noble but still a heavier class than the swordsman. A little less agile than the swordsman but more powerful, gives the squad more range in what it can do.


3. Mongolian Archer -
Spoiler


Main weapon - Any bow you want (standard ammo with no attachments)
Sidearm - Almain Falchion, or any other flachion that is curved.
Shield - Welsh Buckler
Armour - Thick Winter Hose, Winter Mail Gambeson (any colour, just not *too* bright)
Helmet - Bear helmet (Folded cloth hood, any colour)
COA - Something that blends into the armour as to not see it

Although in real life they shot off of the back of the horse, unfortunately we cannot do this on WotR. However they still have the mobility and speed of being on horseback, whilst possessing the ranged threat. Could be used with great effect against any opponent.


4. Mongolian Noble -
Spoiler


Main weapon - Any Halberd (The nobles used to be able to afford them)
Sidearm - Almain Falchion, or any other flachion that is curved.
Shield - Welsh Buckler
Armour - Thick Winter Hose, Brigandine (any colour, just not *too* bright)
Helmet - Bear helmet (Folded cloth hood, any colour)
COA - Something that blends into the armour as to not see it

Historically the nobles were the higher ranking Mongolians that could afford the better weapons such as the halberds etc. On WotR there should really be only a maximum of two of these classes on the same team at any point.


Conclusion:
As you can see this faction/team has a very unique style in that every build has a horse. This is representative of the way that the Mongolians used to fight. I have tried the classes out and they can feel slow but with better archers and horseman they could be fantastic. Here is a reference for the weapons and horses etc, it is one of the things I have used to make these particular builds- ryanwolfe.weebly.com/weapons.html

Anyway, these builds are really fun to play especially in large groups on game modes like conquest or assault. The Mongolians will probably use different tactics to say, the Romans or Egyptians, and it will be very unique to them. This should be quite good fun and a nice contrast to the styles of the other teams. However bare in mind they are not great classes on their1 own and you'll likely get a bad score. It is essentially a small piece of the puzzle and it is all about teamplay and roleplay.
