Poll Question:
[POLL] How do you prefer the Emerald Warrior / Emerald Knight

So, today's revelation of Sylvan creature artworks give us the first impression of what the Emerald Warrior / Emerald Knight might look like:


Quote:
Not really a creature per se, but the first to encounter these warriors and survived to tell the tale used to describe humanoid birds or drakes, until the truth was discovered. Nicknamed “Emerald Knights” by Humans, they are an elite caste within the Elven military. Devoted to guarding the four capital cities and major religious sites of Irollan with their spears and shields, they are instantly recognizable on the battlefield thanks to their flamboyant armour, themed after the various magical beasts found in the Elven forests, especially birds, wyverns and dragons.

Of course, the fact the Holy Empire calls these warriors “Knights” only highlights its profound misunderstanding of the Elves’ very different conception of warfare. Emerald Knights use their speed and vivacity to strike at the enemy before instantly disappearing into the surrounding vegetation. If cornered, their shields and light armour allow them to stand their own in a fight, although it is not their forte.


However, there is information in the Ashan compendium which seems to open the back-door for a different interpretation of the Emerald Knight, which could help bring the Unicorn back into the "Balance" line-up.

AcidDragon said:
This is an excerpt from the Ashan Compendium:

"Elven Cavalry is mostly light cavalry, again designed for speed and maneuverability over shock power. Only the elite Unicorn Riders - the closest the Elves come to the knights of the Holy Empire - will use large shields and lances to drive their point home."


So let's make a poll, how do you prefer the Emerald Knight to be implemented, should a line-up including this unit win:
- Unmounted Emerald Knight
- Mounted Emerald Knight, on Unicorn
- Mounted Emerald Knight, on Stag
- Other (explain)
____________
What will happen now?

Responses:
Unmounted Emerald Knight
Mounted Emerald Knight, on Unicorn
Mounted Emerald Knight, on Stag
Mounted Emerald Knight, on Lynx
Other (explain)

I voted myself "Mounted, on Unicorn". This is under the assumption that the Balance line-up will win and that neither Unicorn nor stag will be in game. If Strength line-up should win instead, I would have unmounted Emerald Knight instead, as Unicorn will then already be in the game.

actually, now that i think about it i think i would prefer a stag-rider to a unicorn-rider; but either would be better than any of the other options imo.

Ok Already voted.. (Stag just for the change of lineup)


But just as an Idea, how would you like the Emerald Knight to ride a giant Root Snake? If Nothing, this would be rather original!

Obviously.
I bet Balance lineup with Unicorn-rider in it will please us more than we think.

I voted other.
I don't like the idea that the only way to get the Unicorns is to have them be ridden. Unicorns should only be ridden by the purest of maidens and the noblest of heroes. But if nothing else is available, I suppose it'll have to do.

But if there were to be a way for Unicorns to be included, without them being ridden like common ponies, then the Knights should ride something else. Stags'll do fine, but there are so much more creative things to be ridden. Like Giant Badgers or Owlbears.
So other, in lieu of there being a "As long as they are mounted on something"-option.

Big surprise there. It's not like I've expressing dissatisfaction over this for the last couple of days.

If you have entire regiments of "The Purest of Maidens", it stops being special and purest.
But like I said, it's beter then no Unicorn.

Voted lynx, also it will saddly never happen. Since Strength loses the voting currently, unicorn is a close second for me.

I post some pictures, if you don't mind

Only mounted, but since likely the Strength looses at all, I voted for (but I prefer more hmm armored):


Great, but to Dungeonish


Not so bad

i really think long before voting.. like 10 minutes. i voted for unmounted, because they need to act fast and then return, and their armor-cloak kinda works for camouflage and not look good on mount.

and although i love unicorns, i started to wonder if they would be really okay with a rider on them? i think they are a bit too much indipendent for that.

and coming to my big reason, if i remember right, developers have no intention to change emerald knight to a rider/flyer. they probably wont care for this poll, since they really dont want to change walker status to something else.

Yes Ubi, forget about adding an armor to the female Emerald Knights. Think on the fans!

But you could make the Emerald Knight ride something else, couldn't you? The models aren't made yet, are they?


Indeed. It'll need to be discussed with the game's designer though. Don't want to ruin his carefully thought-out line-up ideas

So what would you see the Emerald Knight ride, then?
It cannot be a flying creature, because it would change the role of the unit too much.
