ABOUT

Phalanx warriors specialize in a fighting style that involves locking shields and moving in formation, and they usually wear medium armor for mobility. These warriors will always try to lock shields for the added protection. If there is a captain among them, he will often use his Knock Them Down action to knock opponents down to gain ground. If a general is among them, he uses the opportunity of a downed opponent to use the Command Ally ability to give a soldier an attack with advantage.
