The Sarissophoroi is a Greek Cavalry Unit in Age of Empires Online. PvP Values which are different are put in brackets ().

Overview Edit


In-game unequipped Sarissophoroi

  • Mounted on horseback and armed with javelins, the Sarissophoroi easily defeats archers but are vulnerable to attack from Spearman and other Cavalry.

Equipment Slots Edit



  • Unlike most other civilizations who have effective early cavalry, it is not recommended to raid with a group of Sarissophoroi because of their low damage to villagers and buildings, both of whom have pierce armor on them.


  • As Alexander the Great's light cavalry, Sarissophoroi carried a shorter version of an infantryman's spear or a javelin to attack enemies at range
  • Most Sarissophoroi wore little to no body armor other than a helmet. This was due to their dependancy on speed over protection.
