The Settler is a support unit available to all major factions at the game start. It is the only unit with the ability to found new cities. Every starting army at the beginning of the game contains one settler.

Settler units from every faction are identical, with the exceptions of:

  • Faction-specific Capacities, such as Ardent Fire or Dust Care. The Mykara settler does not have fungal bloom regen like the other Mykaran units (which may be a bug).
  • The Roving Clans' and Allayi settlers are Cavalry Units and have a Speed SpeedIcon.png of 6.
  • The Broken Lords Settler does not have the Blocked Growth capacity.


The backbone of any migration or colonization effort, Settlers are the hardy few willing to strike out and found a new home.
