The Cavaliers are the shock troops of the Holy Griffin Empire. Mounted on powerful horses and heavily armoured, they are at their best when they charge the enemy from afar.OffBck

The cavalier is the level 6 unit in the Haven town in Heroes of Might and Magic V. The paladin is its upgrade.


The cavalier is a powerful unit. It is fast and has good attack, coupled with its jousting ability makes it formidable adversary. Unfortunately, unless either side has tactics the cavalier is only one square from being able to traverse the entire battle map and hit a large creature.


  • Jousting - Creature gets a 5% bonus to damage it inflicts during attack for each tile it covered on the battlefield before the attack.
  • Large Creature - This creature is bigger than others and occupies four squares on the field.
