Name: Dacia
From Game: Rome: Total War
Culture: Barbarian

Dacia is one of the factions in Rome: Total War designed to be non-playable. However they can be made playable by simple modifications to the game files (more information on which can be found here).


Starting Position

Dacia begins in the Balkans, north of Macedonia.

Victory Conditions

  • Long Campaign: Hold 50 provinces including Rome.
  • Short Campaign: Hold 15 provinces and outlast or destroy Thrace and Macedon


Dacia is a well rounded faction with a strong early game focus. They get strong early units such as Falxmen, Archer Warband and Barbarian cavalry. They have competent Sword Infantry, decent cavalry and multiple archers options, some of which can fight in melee if required. In the late game their troops will have trouble against elite armies of more civilized powers. Their roster is essentially a generic barbarian roster, similar to Gaul with a few trade offs.

Unique Units

Falxmen These warriors have a strong attack but poor defense. Falxmen are also very mobile, and so are suitable for ambushing or supporting heavy cavalry such as Noble Cavalry

Chosen Archer Warband These troops are skilled long ranged archers with chainmail armour, and can be used to keep enemy archers from targeting vulnerable units. They can also fight as light infantry if necessary.
