Run your enemy down or harass and pepper from afar with the new Saxon Medium Cavalry and Saxon Slingers.
Saxon medium cavalry
Armed with spears and shields, these medium cavalry can serve as a decent shock troop to attack your opponents flanks.
Keep up a consistent barrage of fire. Slingers may fall short compared to arrows for their deadliness, but the ease of use and training, access to ammo and efficient nature all a non-stop volley of deadly projectiles.
