Tier 3 troops are significantly stronger than Tier 1 troops, and slightly stronger than Tier 2 troops. They cost 0.5x more recourses than Tier 2 troops and may be the best troops for some players for quite some time. Around this point in the game, it begins to get harder to upgrade multiple expensive buildings, and unlock research for the hero, traps, troops, marching and economics among others.
Unlocking Tier 3 Troops requires an academy of level 15, and the Ballista's skill. Further research in the defence and attack skills will increase the stats of the Tier 3 Troops, and is a requirement to unlock Tier 4 Troops.
