You can have as many of this mercenary as you like.
Zhao Yun is a passable tank at lower levels. He is among the least expensive (to obtain, upgrade and skill up) mercenaries. His greatest virtue, however, is his ability to reduce the enemy's Action Power.
Lightning Spear skill is an offensive skill that reduces your opponents' Action Power and hits two enemies in a column. Deadly Strike, the D rank mercenaries' skill, delivers a powerful strike to a target but sacrifices Action Power.
He can make a good action-locking team with the Viking and other Spearmen on lower levels, but as the player progresses, he will become obsolete compared to every other Spear mercenary and other mercenaries in general. He may last a bit longer in a team with a Dragoon Main Character thanks to their passive buff, but that's it.
At some point when you get to the higher in-game levels (>120), you will probably want a merc with more and better skills and damage potential.
Basic Attack Edit
- You can recruit Spearmen after level 5 from NPCs Jang Gil San, Ou Yang Feng, Shuichi, Im Guk-jung and Neti for 5,000 gold.
- Can be found wandering around in towns or on roads and recruited on the spot. Hiring a wandering mercenary, however, will most likely cost more than recruiting one from the recruiter NPCs.
