Most units have certain skills that make them special in combat. The skills a unit has can be found under the skills section when viewing the information of a troop. Here is a list of them and which unit has what skill.
The dash skill allows a unit to attack after it has moved during its turn.
Units with dash
- Baby Dragon
- Fire Dragon
- Ice Archer
- Battle Sled
If a unit with the "Escape" skill attacks another unit and the attacker is still alive, then it is given the option to move once more, even if it already moved earlier. (Ex: A rider moves next to an enemy warrior. The rider attacks the warrior. (It doesn't matter if the rider kills the warrior or not- as long as the rider is alive.) The rider is given an extra turn to move.)
Units with escape
Allows the unit to traverse on Water and Ocean after moving onto a port. Upon disembarking, the unit returns to its land form. (Navigation must be researched to travel on Ocean, regardless of the unit having the Carry skill.)
Units with Carry
Scout allows the unit to explore a 5x5 radius instead of 3x3.
Units with Scout
Units with Sneak
- Scout (removed)
Allows the unit to destroy any unit and buildings (e.g. Lumber Hut) by moving onto them.
Units with Crush
Persist allows a unit to immediately attack again after it kills another unit, giving the possibility of destroying huge armies with a single unit.
Units with Persist
Convert allows a unit to convert an enemy unit to the player's tribe.
Units with Convert
Note: Converting a Knight or Rider as Aquarion will transform the unit into their respective Aquarion forms, but converting an Aquarion-specific unit as any other tribe will keep the special unit as it is.
Heal allows units to heal every adjacent friendly unit that doesn't have full health.
Units with Heal
Swim allows units to travel back and forth from water to land.
Units with Swim
Grow allows units to transform into another unit after a certain specified period of time.
Units with Grow
Fly allows units to bypass terrain, move on all types of terrain and explore a 5x5 radius, similar to scout and sneak. Flying units can’t capture cities or examine Ruins.
Units with Fly
Splash allows units to hit all enemies in a 3x3 radius of the target for just above 50% of initial damage.
Units with Splash
Navigate allows units to immediately travel on ocean when they are created, regardless of techs researched.
Units with Navigate
Freeze allows units to freeze units they attack.
Units with Freeze
Auto Freeze allows units to convert adjacent water tiles into ice, land into Polaris land, and freeze adjacent enemy units automatically as they move.
Freeze Area allows units to convert adjacent water tiles into ice, land into Polaris land, and freeze adjacent enemy units as a unit ability.
Units with Freeze Area
Skate gives units double movement on ice tiles, but 1 movement and removal of dash and escape on land.
Units with Skate
Fortify allows units to gain a defence bonus from cities. NOTE: In the skill tooltip, it states that they gain double defence behind a wall, when in reality it is still x4.
