I was wondering if legios are a good unit for killing robbers? For a def-roman they would seem like a reasonable alternative to building a small dedicated off. My thinking was, that the extra losses the legionnaires take due to their lower attack power might be less than the extra cost for a dedicated off. Especially in the early game when resources are scarce one could take advantage of the legionnaires versatility.
Has anyone tried this? I haven't tested this, so any input would be appreciated.
If this works: Do def-romans typically build a small dedicated off at all, or is relying on legionnaires more cost effective?
