The Praetorian is the Roman infantry defense unit. It's the best infantry defender únits in Travian game (65/crop) and one of the best defenders in a Travian game (total 100/crop). If compared with the rival Gaul Phalanx, praetorian provides more defense per crop but is slightly more expensive to train and is skewed to infantry defense (phalanx is a more balanced unit).

Usage Edit

Stationary defense Praetorian is a very specialized defender. Therefore, he should be used only for defense. Although he is an infantry defender, his cavalry defense is 35 which is not too bad. Hence, he could be the lone defender. However, it is still highly recommended to pair him with a better cavalry defender such as a Legionnaire. This is also useful because if you are scouted, an attacker will be less likely to simply send a purely cavalry army to attack the praetorian defense, as losses increase dramatically if even a quarter of the defenders are legionnaires.

However, in a large scale battle, the Gallic Phalanx and the Teutonic Spearman both have higher cavalry defence. Coupled with the Leginnaire's relatively low crop efficiency, this means a Roman defender can focus solely on Praetorians.

Since Roman tends to be raided early and Praetorian could be considered cheap (in Roman standard), it is recommended that Praetorians are built early to fend off early raids.

However, Praetorian's speed is 5 which is very slow. In fact, excluding the siege weapons and senator (for Roman), chieftain (for Gaul) or chiefs (for teuton), praetorian is the slowest unit. Therefore, praetorian is a better used as stationary defense instead of mobile defense.​
