Gendarme, Elite Pikeman and Halberdier would now need 2nd upgrade of blacksmith (or some other boost) to finish Shield Knight in 2 attacks.
Good.
Should be balanced.

People claimed that the 2nd tier looked like it should b 3rd tier, so i had to live up to their expectations and make a better sprite than the 2nd tier

And that worked quite well. It looks better than the 2nd tier in-terms of equipment.

I tried to make it based on the paladins of age of empires but i m still not satisfied with feather, i think i should use pure white colour for the bottom layer instead of player colour, wat do u guys think? The super heavy and slow paladins will b different from the cavaliers instead of their upgrade in aos

Since i made the heavy shield knight sprite, i had a clearer idea how to improve it to make the 3rd upgrade while keeping consistency so obviously i should have been the one making it, if i didnt take a break i would have done this a long time ago, but i still must give endru the credit for making the perfect size of heavy shield knight helmet which gave me new insight on how to make something appear large without actually making it large

Anyways thanks for the compliment, it makes me happy to see my drawings r appreciated :D and i also think this is so far the best sprite i have ever drawn, just because of this drawing i believe people will use more shield knights than normal knights ;)

Im actually a shield knight user, and yeah its true that the 2nd uograde looks like a 3rd upgrade and actually sometimes I dont even upgrade it cause I dont like the appeal of it turning into some giant dark knight, but this 3rd uograde looks sooo amazing that I want to train these every match :lol:

My reasoning is they represent vanguards, in an army of heavy knights they will stay in the front of the charge and likely to die first in a clash before the rest of the knights follow, so in that reasoning they can b considered to have lower social status than the rest of the knights, but they also brush with death a lot so they r physically stronger and more resilient

Like i played a few strategy rpg games and in those games, the black knights were like this, they were treated as slaves and forced to head the charge in any wars, but due to their fighting experience they were much stronger and could survive all alone against an army of enemies, so i made the heavy shield knight a black armored knight

But i was also partly influenced by the basic unit which had dark skin on face and rode a black horse

If u zoom in on this image until u can see each individual pixels, u will realise it actually looks very ugly... It took a lot of practice to perfect the end result of the drawings, i first used pixly then used pixel studio which had easier and more comfortable access to layer designs

Tried a new feather style, ended up with a cotton candy... I have been trying quite hard to match the heavy knight upgrade tech image
