Nice military-focuased idea set, but seiously, +15% land battle prestige as a finisher?...
Unless there is some change to prestige, prestige gain from land battles or Glorious Arms idea (+100% Land Battle Prestige) it is utter weak sauce. Even if there would be some change, that is not particulary strong bonus.

I think adding +5% discipline at the end would suit better than worthless prestige gain improvements.

Otherwise, an excellent military set. AoW really is making revoking the privilegia potentially awesome!

By the way, do their ideas mean they pay 45% less for artillery mercenary maintenance?
