Age of Mythology TRL - Velite Picture

Velites are counter-archers available to the Romans in the Classical Age that provide good support for the Hastati. Though they have a slower attack speed and weaker armor, they are faster and cheaper than the Auxilia. Regardless, they will become obsolete once you reach the Heroic Age but can still come handy if you are short on resources. They also have a unique bonus against War Elephants.
