                              ===============

-----------
Version 1.0
-----------

This is the first of version of my FAQ, it includes such information as 
relative unit speeds and unit creation times. For links to my work with 
COST EFFECTIVE UNIT TESTS, please visit the Strategy Forum at 
aok.heavengames.com, search for "gaparr64" at the bottom of the topics 
page.

This FAQ was created on June 5, 2001.

-----------
Version 2.0
-----------

Version 2.0 includes a list of units and their best counter units. The 
title has now been changed to "Unit Study" instead of "Unit Creation 
Times/Relative Unit Speeds."

-----------
Version 3.0
-----------

Version 3.0 includes a revision of the Units and Counter Units section 
(thanks to the forummers at the Age of Kings Heaven Strategy Forum). Also 
included is a list of the type of damage that each unit does.

-----------
Version 4.0
-----------

Now in the proper GameFAQs format of 78 characters per line or less. Unit
Statistics tables added to this version.

-----------
Version 4.1
-----------

New textart and the date of the latest version now displayed at top of 
the document. I also rearranged the sections.

                                 Section 2
                              ===============
                              Unit Statistics
                              ===============

Numbers are base values and do not reflect civilzation bonuses.

Where there are forward slashes (/) the first number refers to standard
units while the second number refers to elite units. For example, Eagle
Warrior attack 7/9 means that the Eagle Warrior has 7 attack and the
Elite Eagle Warrior has 9 attack. 

There are two types of armour, melee and pierce. The first one listed is
melee armour and stops melee attacks. The second listed armour is pierce
armour and stops piercing attacks. For example, an Eagle Warrior has 0/2
armour. That means 0 melee armour and 2 pierce armour. See Section 5 for a
list of the kind of damage (melee or pierce) that each unit inflicts and
more information on how armour actually works.

When armour is listed for a unit and an elite unit side by side (like 
this: 0/1 / 0/2), the first two numbers are the value of the standard
unit's melee armour and pierce armour respectively. The last 2 
numbers are the melee and pierce armour of the elite unit respectively.

The following unit creation times are in Age of Empires II game time (not 
actual time). All times are in seconds. All times are accurate within 1 
second and are rounded down to the nearest whole number. (PI) means 
Post-Imperial and the times marked as (PI) are with conscription, unique
technologies, and Imperial Age upgrades (such as Champion or Paladin). No 
(PI) means conscription was not researched and the unit was was fully 
upgraded except for Imperial Age upgrades. Except for Cavalry Archers, 
Eagle Warriors, and Chu Ko Nus, all units and thier upgrades (such as 
Militia and Champions) have the same creation time.

                           ======================
                           Pierce or Melee Damage
                           ======================

Melee damage is blocked by melee armour (represented by the first number
of a unit's armour). Pierce damage is blocked by pierce armour
(represented by the second number in a unit's armour). For example, a
unit with 2/3 armour will block 2 melee damage or 3 pierce damage,
depending on the type of damage that is dealt. To determine the damage
dealt when the unit being hit has armour, take the attackers attack
(including added attack by blacksmith upgrades) and subtract from it the
defending unit's armour. This will be that damage dealth by the attacker.
Every attack does a minimum of 1 damage.

For example:

An arbalest has 6 + 4 attack and does pierce damage. A champion has
1 + 4 pierce armour. The damage done by the arbalest to the champion
will be:

attack  -  armour  =  damage
(6 + 4) - (1 + 4)  =  5 damage
