Effect Cavalry and Arambai +3 attack vs buildings and standard buildings

Manipur Cavalry is a technology in Age of Empires II HD: Rise of the Rajas that is unique to the Burmese and can be researched at the Castle once the Imperial Age is reached. Once researched, it gives Arambai and cavalry +3 attack against buildings and standard buildings.

Strategy Edit

The Burmese lack the Siege Onager and the Siege Ram. Manipur Cavalry powers up the Burmese Battle Elephants' raiding capabilities so they can compensate for that.

It must be mentioned that Masonry gives buildings +3 building armor, so half of the bonus is not unlikely to be nullified in later stages of the game.

Team bonuses Edit

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

Changelog Edit

Rise of the Rajas Edit

  • Initially, Manipur Cavalry gives +6 attack against buildings. With patch 5.3, the bonus is spread over the two building classes (building and standard building) equally so Architecture does not cancel the effect completely anymore.
