Levy is a technology in Age of Empires III that can be researched at the Town Center by European civilizations. Once researched, six Militiamen spawn at the Town Center. Unlike other technologies, Levy is available at every Town Centers the player has, but can only be researched once as with other technologies.
With the "Town Militia" ("Colonial Militia" before the Definitive Edition) Home City Card, Conscription (Colonial Militia before the Definitive Edition) will be available at Town Centers, which is identical to Levy but spawns fifteen Militiamen, effectively allowing a Town Center to muster two groups of Militiamen at once or mustering a second group of Militiamen.
Civilization differences[edit | edit source]
- The Indians can research Levy by allying with the Ottomans at the Consulate (requires a level 40 Home City), which costs 200 export but the Militiamen spawned by the Consulate version will appear on the Home City shipment point.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
- Levy can be used to assist in gathering Treasure, hunting the enemy heroes and scouts, or to harass the enemy with hit and run on their gatherers, who will perish in a single barrage by all six units (with the exception of Coureur des Bois and Settler Wagons).
