A Promotion is an extra ability military units can get after they earn enough Experience. Bellow is a list of all Promotions in the game.

  • Promotion requirements

Note that many promotions apply only to certain classes of units - for example Melee, Land, Naval, etc. Also, several key promotions have multiple stages, marked as I, II or III - each subsequent stage of these can only be acquired after you earn the previous stage.

The highest-level promotions require all stages of another lower-level promotion. Note that they are usually available across classes (that is, both for Melee and Ranged units, for example), but they also require different promotions for the different classes.
