Forced Levy is a technology in Age of Empires II HD: Rise of the Rajas that is unique to the Malay and can be researched at the Castle once the Imperial Age is reached. Once researched, it removes the gold cost from the Militia line units, practically turning them into trash units.

Strategy Edit

In order to keep the late game balance, the Malay crucially lack the final Militia line upgrade, Champion. They do however have access to all Infantry Blacksmith upgrades, making their Two-Handed Swordsmen very useful for their price, giving the Malay an edge in late game trash wars, when gold has become a scarcity.

Like the Magyar unique technology Mercenaries, the player should research Forced Levy as soon as they require more infantry in order to have the highest possible use.

Team bonuses Edit

  • A team containing Berbers: With Kasbah researched, researching Forced Levy is 25% faster.
