    Its the lowest level or base level attack units, such as archers, footmen, etc.

    lolz.
    ok..so we start... the game base has 3 stages known as tier1, tier 2 and tier 3.

    for example:

    NE

    tree of life represents the tier 1..and all the building and all the units u can get out are considered tier 1.

    tier2..it's tree of ages: and tier 2 units are Dryads, DOTC druid form and DOTT..and few others

    tier 3 it's tree of eternety and some of the tier 3 units are bears (dotc) , chimera.

    And by the way, even if u can pump tier 3 units such as knights out, the footmen u pump out of the same barracks isn't considered a tier 3 unit, its still a tier 1.

    knights are considered tier 3 as long as the requier castle along with blacksmith and lumbermill. It will be funny and crazy to get out knights as tier 1. But footmen are considered tier 1 even if u reached castle.

    it's ur basic army, footmen along with riffle man.

    Casters as initiate are considered tier 2 but i'd consider casters master more tier 3 because they have powerful spells.

    griphons, knights, steam tanks..are all tier 3.

    I would think of it like this,

    Caster with no training is tier 2, casters with one upgrade is tier 2.5 and master casters are tier 3.
