Inconsistency/Bug regarding Yellow Turban Spearmen recruitment

cool_ladcool_lad Senior MemberIndiaRegistered Users Posts: 2,278
Yellow Turban Spearmen are available for recruitment by Veterans and Scholars at rank 4, while Healers can recruit the same unit at rank 1.

This seems somewhat inconsistent and seems the product of an oversight or bug, whereby the rank lock was either not applied to the Healer or was applied incorrectly to the Veteran and Scholar.

The effect of the bug essentially makes Healers somewhat meta in the camapign due to their ability to bring better spears than the Veteran and Scholar from the get go.

Kindly fix the same at the earliest.

    Thanks for the report - I believe that this was actually by design.

    Each of the Yellow Turban Spearmen/archer/swords are unlocked at different levels by the three types of hero classes.

    Healers get early access to spearmen, whereas scholars/ veterans get early access to one of the other units.
