BansheeMighty in melee, Banshee also debilitate their enemies with fear-inducing screams and wails. Even the hardiest fall before this terror.
Tomb Banshees constantly howl in remembrance of the forbidden pleasures of the life that was once theirs and in bitterness for the peace of the grave that they cannot attain. Their grief-stricken wails can be lethal to mortals and strike terror into the hearts of all who hear them. Those who do not have a will of iron can die of sheer fright upon hearing the mournful screams of the Tomb Banshees. Blood trickles from their ears and fills up the whites of their eyes as the mind-wrenching shriek takes its supernatural toll. Fully-armoured Knights collapse lifeless from their saddles and whole ranks of infantry fall lifelessly as the Banshee does her evil work.

Those who are "slippery" cannot be cornered or pinned - they simply "slip" away…

Strengths & Weaknesses
- Causes Terror
This unit can fear themselves.
The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.
This unit is best used to attack individual targets such as Heroes. As it can only damage very few individuals at a time, it is not suitable against hordes of weak enemies.
Ethereal units ignore most damage done by non-magical weapons. As they have shed most of their physical form, they are not slowed by terrain-based movement penalties either.
