Elite Legionary Equipment
- Level II weapons (+10% melee attack) upon recruitment
Throughout the Gallic Wars, Caesar often financed the raising and equipping of his own troops himself. With the spoils of his victories in Gaul - rich plunder from temples and settlements - at his disposal he could afford to outfit his Legions with the finest equipment. Suetonius even jokes in The Twelve Caesars that the inlay of silver and gold on the weapons of his troops made them more careful not to be disarmed in combat. Whatever the case, Caesar’s lavish favouring of his Legions bound them closer to him, giving them both the equipment and the desire to fight for his cause.
