About

Unit Description

High Elf aristocrats are precise and calculating, and they bring this nature to the battlefield.

Historical Description

High Elf Nobles are the leaders of their own respective armies and companies, warriors whose skill at arms and years of experience far surpass those of any other mortal race. The noble families of Ulthuan have led the High Elves through times of peace and conflict for thousands of years. They pride themselves on a deep sense of honour, as well as the mastery of both diplomacy and war as art forms. The High Elves believe an existence lived without precision to be hollow, and scarcely preferable to death. Any Elf noble is just at home fighting with a sword in bloody melee as he is loosing deathly-accurate arrows from afar, or even dictating the strategy of a campaign from a greater distance still. Though they are loyal to the Phoenix King even unto death, all High Elves of noble blood love intrigue and politics. Unfortunately, this sometimes means that armies are trusted to individuals based on political alignment, rather than on ability. Fortunately these instances are rare -- when the safety of Ulthuan is at stake, few Phoenix Kings have suffered such idiocy for long. There is no shortage of brave and talented commanders among the Asur, and courtly intrigue seldom prevents such individuals from harnessing their skills.

Abilities

Martial Prowess

High Elves excel as warriors, having trained in martial disciplines for the equivalent of many men's lifetimes.

Deadly Onslaught

Such is the power and ferocity of the champion, that those who stand in his way will falter against the warrior's impact.

Foe-Seeker

There are those who wish nothing more than to be at the heart of battle, seeking foes to vanquish.

Attributes

Charge Defence vs. Large

When bracing, this unit negates the charge bonus of any large attacker.

Encourage

This unit provides a leadership bonus to nearby allies. Units within range of both the Lord's aura and an encouraging unit will receive the larger of the two bonuses.

Hide (forest)

This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.

Strengths & Weaknesses

Anti-Large

Anti-large units have an advantage against targets that are at least as large as a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against large targets or an attack that focuses on a very small area. However, some units are simply better against large targets because their attacks are slow and easy to dodge by skilled melee combatants.

Armour-Piercing

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.

Armoured

Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.

Charge Defence Against Large Foes

When standing and bracing against a charge of large enemies (such as cavalry or monsters) this unit will negate the enemy's charge bonus.
