Be advised that Sultan Hakim, bright star and rightful ruler of the Sarranid Sultanate has tired of his useless bot archers and has ordered the Bastards of Durquba, a mercenary archer outfit loyal to the Sultanate to replace them. This group is better trained and has better weapons. One adviser in the Sultans court says that the Bastards are skilled but they cost a lot more then previous archers. He also commented; "These bastards better perform as promised!". Other sources speculates that taxes probably will have to be raised to cover the Bastards salaries.
Yes, the Sarranid archers have finally been upgraded and made fully competitive with all the other ranged units. As some people know, the Sarranid archers had been cursed with 0 in powerdraw while all the other archer nations had 5. This combined with a proficiency accuracy of 80 made them the laughingstock of Calradia. This has now changed, their powerdraw has been altered to 4 and their accuracy has increased to 120. This will make them much more effective in battle while keeping it within the original lore.
This is of course subject to change after observations.
Edit (14/11/2021): Changed to powerdraw 5, proficiency 106, Has access to a Sarranid Bastard sword also.
