Steppe Husbandry is a technology in Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition that is unique to the Cumans and can be researched at the Castle. Once researched, Scout Cavalry line units and Cavalry Archers are created 400% faster.

Strategy Edit

Steppe Husbandry gives a similar effect like the Frankish unique technology Chivalry and the Gothic unique technology Perfusion; Further boosting the creation speed of key units of the Cuman army, namely Light Cavalry and Cavalry Archers. If the player wants to create a quick, cost-effective army, this technology is useful, especially by its cost and the fact that all Cuman cavalry already move 10%/15% faster in the Castle/Imperial Age. However, it doesn't affect Kipchaks or Genitours.

In the Imperial Age, the creation speed can be improved with Conscription, and even more if the player has a Briton and/or a Hunnic ally, which makes their Archery Range and Stable work 20% faster, respectively.

Team bonuses Edit

  • A team containing Berbers: With Kasbah researched, researching Steppe Husbandry is 25% faster.
