So this is probably a silly question but I can't seem to find a real answer despite the fact that the game has been out for a fair amount of time now. Regarding the household members/artifacts that you can assign to your generals, which give (meager) bonuses to various troop-types or stat increases. How does Rome II classify the various troop types? For example, some of the artifacts give "+melee attack to all sword units" or "+armor to all heavy infantry". Those are relatively straightforward (though I do have questions regarding the definition of "heavy infantry". But some of the artifacts things give +(insert generic bonus here) to all spear infantry. Are pikemen considered "spear infantry"? Back to the heavy infantry thing, are "very heavy spear infantry" considered heavy infantry or does that particular bonus apply strictly to units explicitly labelled as heavy?

I realize it sounds kind of odd...almost Bill Clinton-esque..."It depends upon what the meaning of the word 'is' is." But the game has a lot of, what I would call consistency issues. So that's why I'm asking.

Excellent question! It makes total sense, kimosabe.

When you right click a unit's icon thingy to view its stats and the like, if memory serves it should state the unit's class somewhere on that page; heavy infantry, spear infantry, etc.

If I am wrong, please feel free to throw an angry badger at me. I am on my tablet and thus can't confirm at the moment.
