Portrait of the archer

The first rank of the Sentinel army is comprised of Archers. These brave warrior women are expert marksmen and use the concealing forests of Kalimdor to their advantage. Their lightning quick ambushes are legendary - for few warriors can match the speed and cunning of the proud Archers. Like all Night Elf women, Archers are able to Shadowmeld at night.

Spells and abilities

Hide

Lie in wait for enemies without attacking (Will respond to attacks).
Units will hold position and hold their fire, so when they are Shadowmelding, they will not break their own invisibility.
It's very handy for running away from a battle. The Hide ability is disabled during the day.
