Tactics and info
These are one of the most indispensable units of the Rampart, along with the unicorns and dragons, because they are the only shooter of this faction and deal impressive amounts of damage, especially upgraded. However, it should be noted that they die very easily when attacked, and each ranged attack a turn caused by the Grand Elves uses up two shots, not one.
The AI really likes to target the Elves. When conquering a city it is advisable to leave the Elves behind to avoid losses to the towers.
