Like other infantry, Erik the Red is affected by all upgrades that affect infantry as well as any civilization bonuses that affect them. As with all heroes, Erik the Red can self regenerate and cannot be converted.
Erik the Red is a heavy infantry hero unit that is seen in the Vindlandsaga campaign. He is armed with an axe. Like Berserks and other hero units has the ability to regenerate health over time. This allows him to last long in combat and makes him effective in long battles. He is effective against enemy buildings and cavalry in combat, but vulnerable to Siege Units and Archers.
