I hope that runes would do the same. Has anyone tried it to see if that is how it works, or could the Devs comment?

Okay quick question. I don't know if anyone knows about this or if they Devs could comment:

If equipped troops are killed by a defensive rune, do they drop equipment and if so, where? Do they drop equipment inside the defending city without having to be scavenged or at a random 1 of the 8 squares surrounding the city? Does it matter if the force is completely killed or not?

The equipment's combat bonuses are additive with each other - i.e. they stack. So:
  • Offensive bonuses add up attack bonus, racial bonus, terrain bonus, biome bonus, and day/night bonus.
  • Defensive bonuses add up the relevant defence bonus (based on what you are defending against), racial bonus, terrain bonus, biome bonus, and day/night bonus.
  • Movement speed, magic resistance and carrying capacity are not affected by terrain, biome, race or day/night - these are each just a single bonus.
All bonuses are then doubled if the unit/commander is elite.

The equipped units new stats are then multiplied by the additive effects of the other bonuses. (e.g. commander divisional bonuses, jungle warfare colleges etc.)
 

For a commander, do you apply equipment bonuses to the basic stats before you apply the multiplier for heroism or after?

I've just noticed that you can equip your commanders while they're out in an encampment. Is that intended?

Something strange happened.
On a square that contained hides, animal parts, 1 boar spear and 1 plainsman chain (only the commander was equipped, and i have a scout report confirming the res present before the harvesting) i harvested 98 plainsman chainmails, apparently out of nothing. I have an army camped there so i am sure no other battles happened.
A new scout report says that the 1 spear and 1 chain are still there, along with the hides/parts.
I sent cotters again, and they are now seemingly harvesting the boar spear, i'll update when they are done.

Update: the cotters harvested in 1 hour 98 Boar Spears. Definitely a bug, i'll stop sending cotters to avoid exploiting, lets see what skinners will bring home...
Petition sent.

A second run against a larger target gave better results. In this case the calc showed I should lose 59 out of each division of 60.

Attackers: Unit: Quantity: Casualties: Survivors:
Commander: Marshal Marshal 1 Damaged for 78, 522 health remains.
Troops: Marshals 60 47 13
Commander: Cavalary Marshal 1 Damaged for 78, 222 health remains.
Troops: Marshals 60 46 14
Commander: Commander 4 Marshal 1 Damaged for 78, 22 health remains.
Troops: Marshals 60 47 13
Commander: Commander 5 Marshal 1 Damaged for 78, 122 health remains.
Troops: Marshals 60 47 13
Commander: Commander 5 Marshal 1 Damaged for 78, 22 health remains.
Troops: Marshals 60 47 13

Defenders: Unit: Quantity: Casualties: Survivors:
Troops: Scuttlers 1597 1597 0
Troops: Adult Scuttlers 802 802 0
Troops: Ravenous Scuttlers 298 298 0

*Further Edit - after this attack, only 1 boar spear and 4 ss chain were left behind on the sq, making it a ridiculously expensive way to save 60 t2 cav.

I'm thinking I might be building/equipping purely for speed in future, as the actual combat benefits are laughable in the face of the equipment expense
