Troops are a category of reinforcements in the World Map. They can be bought for coins and immediately add a small amount of war effort to the specified battle. Troops are the primary way to spend coins.

There are 5 different types of troops with rising costs and effectiveness. The more expensive the troops, the more efficient it will be, with the 'Specialists' reaching 100% war effort per coin spent.

Icon Name Cost Effect
TODO Militia 50 coins 25 war effort
Conscripts 100 coins 60 war effort
Cadets 200 coins 140 war effort
Mercenaries 500 coins 400 war effort
Specialists 1200 coins 1200 war effort

Most of the time, troops are a better investment than effort buffs, unless the player produces a lot of effort in little time, such as in Hell difficulty speedruns.
