AOE2: Paladin Statistics Table
I worked on creating some sortable tables lately. I've also have been playing a ton of AOE2:DE (Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition). Figured why not put the two together?
I've been nerding out a lot looking at wikis and stats, such as here* for example, but since I don't have most civs and bonuses memorized I find it hard to compare.
*Note: I honestly didn't realize there was a comparison table on that page until after I made this :face_palm:
For example, how does Franks HP bonus actually compare to bloodlines, and who all has bloodlines?
Who would have thought that (after Lithuanians with Relics) that Malian Cavaliers have the highest attack?
I think my main use for this would be when playing as a Cavalier civ checking how it matches up and if it seems viable.
So this is kind of for fun, yes this is my idea of fun, but let me know any feedback or if there was something to make it more useful.
Paladin Statistics Chart
Here are the statistics for post-imperial, fully upgraded Paladins and knight-line.
*Notes: Aztecs, Incas, Indians, and Mayans do not have a knight line and were left of the chart.
Expansion civs also left off - see below for explanation.
Click a column header to sort by that column.
|Civ||Type||Hit Points||Attack||Melee Armor||Peirce Armor||Food Cost||Gold Cost||Husbandry||Bloodlines||Blacksmith Attack||Blacksmith Armor||Special Tech||Civ Bonus|
|Bulgarians||Cavalier||140||16||5||6||60||75||Y||Y||3||3||Attack 33% Faster|
|Burmese||Cavalier||140||16||5||6||60||75||Y||Y||3||3||plus 6 attack vs buildings|
|Cumans||Paladin||180||18||5||7||60||75||N||Y||3||3||5% faster each age|
|Franks||Paladin||192||18||5||7||60||75||Y||N||3||3||Stables work 40% faster||Plus 20% hit points|
|Huns||Paladin||180||18||5||7||60||75||Y||Y||3||3||Stables work 20% faster|
|Lithuanians||Paladin||180||16||5||7||60||75||Y||Y||2||3||up to plus 4 attack with relics|
|Malians||Cavalier||140||19||5||6||60||75||Y||Y||2||3||plus 5 attack|
|Persians||Paladin||180||18||5||7||60||75||Y||Y||3||3||plus 2 attack vs archers|
|Portuguese||Cavalier||140||16||5||6||60||60||Y||Y||3||3||20% cheaper on gold|
|Tatars||Cavalier||140||16||5||6||60||75||Y||Y||3||3||25% Extra Hill Bonus Damage|
|Teutons||Paladin||180||18||7||7||60||75||N||Y||3||3||plus 2 melee armor|
Note: Blacksmith Armor and Attack refer to the number of upgrades available - not the value of it. I originally had the values as the names, such as "Blast Furnace", but I switched it to numerical values to make it easier to sort. Also, I get them mixed up sometimes, so figured this might be easier to digest.
- Iron Casting
- Blast Furnace
- Scale Barding Armor
- Chain Barding Armor
- Plate Barding Armor
How I got These Stats
In case there are discrepancies, here are how I got these stats:
- Scenario Editor
- Added a Paladin
- Selected Civ
- Click on Unit
- Record Stats
- Look at Tech Tree for other notes
- Change Civ and Repeat
This is why I did not include the expansions civs. Since I do not have them I cannot use them in the scenaro editor.
After posting this I'll definitely make some updates for a time period. Especially if I make a mistake, as I typically do. So feel free to give me a shout.
As AOE2 frequently gets updated the stats could change at anytime. So I'm not going to commit to keeping this chart always up to date. That is why I always put a date on my blog posts - refer to that when you are reading this to guage whether you should be taking this with a grain of salt. I'll try to add an 'updated date' when I make updates down the road.
