One of the other three trash units in the game. Although not too strong against many units, they can be easily massed and with good hitpoints are good at getting in the enemies way. They are the most common raiding unit, having good pierce armour and having the speed to back it up. They are also used for picking out the monks/ siege in the enemy army.
