Description

Light and cheap, the Glaive makes short work of enemy skirmishers, artillery and economy, but should avoid and outmanouver riot units and defenses, where it is not as strong. Damaged Glaives regenerate when out of combat.

Tactics and Strategy[edit]

Compared to most other raiders, the Glaive is cheap and has high speed and damage output, but has poor health and range. Attack in multiple locations and from multiple directions to make the most of the Glaives' strengths. Small engagements where both sides take small amounts of damage but lose no units also favour Glaives, since their auto-regeneration will repair any damage quickly.
