Default Man: A Bless nation in CBM 1.92?

Now that Wardens can be hired everywhere, does that make them a bless nation?

If not, what kind of nation are they in CBM 1.92

Also, is production a requirement for this nation?

Tried them with E9/n4 bless and decent scales. They hold the line very nicely and deal some serious damage with their high str. and greatswords.
Hydras still eat them for breakfast, though.

for the cost of 28 resources I guess you can be safe with getting production 1 and clever caslte placement. You could try prod 0 but I wouldnt take sloth since you still need more unts(longbowmans) while these guys hold the line.

Armored sacreds have one problem: destruction/rust mist/other anti-armor totally screws them.

They *can* be played as a bless nation now. But Man also needs other thins like diversity so I would rather use knights as the mainstay forces and only take a light rainbow bless for the wardens. The wardens can then be used as stealthy raiders. The knights are a bargain now. The same stats as bogarus heavy cavalry, but 10g cheaper.

Yes, the quadrupal buffed, recruit anywhere wardens make man _easily_ the best bless nation in CBM MA now, far superior to the actual bless nations...

The quadrupal buff thing wasn't was referring to the bless but to the fact that CBM also -
1. Increases their combat stats
2. Increases their magic resistance
3. Increases their movement
4. Reduces their encumbrance

In addition to making them cheaper.

Wait, the nation with access to only 4 paths, and needs a pretender to forge boosters for all of those, no way even to get holy 2, much less 3 besides the prophet, and also can't take dump scales thanks to old mages plus resource intensive regulars and sacreds...is the best bless nation in MA?

The priestesses have scryed upon Nightfall's post and have detected sarcasm.
