Hawk-Eyes of Drakira (Waywatchers)

A shower of arrows let loose from behind a constricting wall of smoke awaits any trespassing enemies of the forest.

Waywatchers are silent sentinels, the guardians of the paths leading into Athel Loren. They are masters of concealment, and can lie unmoving and unnoticed for days on end before springing an ambush on a startled and unfortunate prey. Few warriors can match a Waywatcher's skill with a bow. Should they wish it, these silent stalkers can loose an unerring stream of black-shafted arrows in a heartbeat, or place a single shot precisely in the weak point of a foe's armour. Furthermore, Waywatchers are highly adept at the arts of disruption and surprise, often appearing silently next to a vulnerable enemy and vanishing as quickly before the body even hits the ground. Thus do any who enter Athel Loren run the risk of being slain without warning by the Waywatchers, cut down by unseen archers or falling prey to their cunningly-constructed traps.

Abilities

  • Smoke Bomb
    Clogging the senses with acrid, stinging smoke leaves an enemy completely vulnerable.
  • Hawkish Precision
    The truly hawk-eyed always hit their targets. Always.

Attributes

  • {{tr:guerrilla_deployment}}
  • Fire Whilst Moving
    This unit can fire while on the move.
  • Stalk
    This unit can move hidden in any terrain.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Forest Stalker
    The Elves of Athel Loren move faster and aim more precisely within the forest.
  • Good Range
    This unit has a larger range than most other units of the same class. This allows it to take out hostile missile units before they can come into firing range.
  • Armour-Piercing Missiles
    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.
  • Damage Dealer
    This unit has a strong emphasis on dealing damage. If fighting it, make sure to take it out before it can get into firing or melee range.
