Strategy and Builds

The Risen Swordsman is a Light Infantry variant Risen unit. It can contribute to a squad being Light movement, allowing it to Ambush.

Useful traits will enhance their critical chances and damage, such as Lithe Assault, Assassin's Heart, and Precision.

When not in the front-line and in a mostly Risen squad, the Vengeance trait is very useful for dealing extra damage to accumulate unlife to revive dead ally Risen units.

Warrior's Hubris is also very useful for counteracting their main weakness against magic damage.
