Which are the best units in Total War: Pharaoh?

While, as mentioned, this answer might change based on the units that you have available, it is easy to guess that the Pharaoh guards are among the strongest warriors in all the realm. Clearly, they were chosen because of their strength and stamina. This means you can always count on them in battle, sometimes even against what seem to be insurmountable odds. Thanks to their Underdog ability, they might indeed come out victorious.

After Pharaoh guards, we definitely recommend making good use of Chariots. They are flexible and strong units, fast on the battlefield and able to fire in all directions. This gives them a great opportunity to do quick (but significant) damage on the battlefield. If you're going to request chariots, better go all-in and ask for the best of them: the Royal ones.
