Here’s a list of Warlord skills:

  • Killing Spree – Target friendly unit gains additional movement and action points upon killing an enemy unit in combat.
  • Steadfast Ward – Steadfast prevents a unit’s health from dropping below 1 hitpoint for a limited amount of time.
  • Conqueror’s Feast – The ‘Enemy in domain’ and ‘Enemy at the gates’ morale penalties are twice as effective against the caster’s enemies. In addition, the caster’s units require less upkeep cost outside of their Empire’s domain.
  • Relentless Army – Bestows all friendly units with Tireless. Tireless units don’t spend action points for attacks of opportunity or retaliation.
  • Global Assault – All your units gain Charge, First Strike, and are promoted to the gold medal rank. All units produced in your cities gain gold medals as well.

The Warlord Class can be mixed with any of the six races and can be further augmented using specializations with will provide the class with additional magical skills.
