The Saracens are a Middle Eastern Civilization featured in Age of Empires II. They are also known as the Arabians and are the dominant tribe in the Arabian Peninsula. The Saracens are strictly an offensive civilization since their bonuses are suited for military combat.

Overview Edit

The Saracens are a civilization with strong Camel units. The Saracen Cavalry Archer also receives a +3 attack bonus against buildings. Their team bonus gives foot archers a +1 attack boost against buildings. The Saracen cavalry is slightly inferior to other civilizations as they lack the Cavalier/Paladin upgrade but all other cavalry technologies and units are available. Their Unique Unit is the Mameluke, a camel unit that throws scimitars from a distance. Mamelukes are strong against other mounted units, and once upgraded to Elite Mameluke, they are one of the best counters to cavalry in the game. Their Unique Technology is Zealotry which provides their camels and Mamelukes with +30 hit points, making them even more dominant against cavalry.

The Saracens have a formidable army since they can produce all Archer units as well as every Infantry unit trained at the Barracks. These units can provide great cover for their camel units. The Saracens are also known for their strong naval power, as their Galleys attack 20% faster than other civilisations’ galleys. They are able to produce all ships except for the Fast Fire Ship. Their transport ships are able to carry twice the number of units as other civilizations and have twice the total Hit Points. They have all technologies at the Monastery available. Their economy is not particularly strong since they lack the economic upgrades of Stone Shaft Mining, Guilds, and Crop Rotation. However, their Market trade cost is reduced by 5% as one of their civilization bonuses.
