Strategy: Prince Edit
Strength: Prince Edit
The Prince is a potent defensive unit. Although he is hilariously weak for his cost, the Prince provides valuable insurance against decapitation strikes against your King. As long as you keep your Prince and King adjacent to each other, lone attackers trying to take out your King are doomed to fail: as soon as an attacker takes the King, the Prince can avenge his death and take the crown. This lets you make aggressive plays without having to worry about protecting your King. Prince can also combine with royal guard to have an assisting minion with great mobility (since Prince's mobility is fantastic compared to royal guard). Higher levels of Prince can also stay a further distance and still protect king against potential checkmates.
Weakness: Prince Edit
The Prince takes up a decent amount of space in your army setup and provides practically no offensive power. Starting at Prince++ he can be a somewhat acceptable attacker, but if he moves away from the King's side he loses his main advantage. Remember that you have to be able to survive the capture of the King, too: if you're at 25 morale or less, you'll lose as soon as your King is taken, before you have a chance to activate the Prince. As such the Prince is basically useless for the endgame, so be careful about blindly making trades.
At all levels Prince also only gives back 20 morale, so you still lose 5 morale overall.
-Prince is one of the two pieces in the game capable of providing you with another king, the other piece being Envy.
