    The conquistador, Spain's UU, can't escort religious units which makes it very annoying to maintain their +10 combat by having to also move their religious unit manually.

    Either change the buff or allow it to actually escort religious units :rolleyes:

    I never escort. It's ridiculous to escort since religious units have 4 movement, indicating that one religious unit can actually provide bonus for multiple Conquistadors. It's certainly a giant waste to have them escorted. Even if they can be escorted I'll never do that. It's ridiculous.

    That's more micromanagement.

    TBH units that have special escort buffs for civilians (Conquistador, Jong, Keshig) should be allowed to escort religious units. There's no reason why they can't still take part in religious combat. (i.e. not blocking like at launch)

    At the very least the Conquistador. Hooking it up to an Apostle and then just forgetting about it is the way to go...especially for multiplayer, where Civ VI is bogged down in tedious micromanagement.

    I'm playing Spain on a TSL Earth map (mod) and I have to say the micro is killing me. Really having to move conquistadors and missionaries each turn is painstakingly slow and cumbersome.

    I reiterate to the devs to either allow it to escort the religious unit or change the buff to something else. Please!
