My favorite unit is Witch https://units.wesnoth.org/1.14/Ageless_ ... Witch.html. Old version though, when it was 4-4 instead of 3-5, so drain worked better. It is just what I expect from dark elf.

And it is painful to fight against Cosmic Eye https://units.wesnoth.org/1.14/Ageless_ ... c_Eye.html. High speed, chance to hit, single strike high damage antishield attack. If there are few of them then something will die.

To me it's Swordsman. It's just such a solid unit in nearly every situation. Relatively easy to level up, but very powerful and resilient.

For me it it the Spectre. Quick thanks to its movement costs and powerful drain melee.
Least favorite is probably the heavyinfantry line. Only a few attacks, slow, high movement cost.

Fave: Skeletons. They are the backBONE of my undead armies! ;) While they have some weaknesses I like how they force the enemy into building units to stop them. Also great graphics (even the death anim *sniff*).

Least fave: Woses I guess. Slow, terrible defense out of woods. Hard to kill (except when their mine natch). Do love their death anims though. Pity they have no swaying in the wind, rustling leaves idle anim though.

I haven't played in a long while but I'll join in:

Footpad has always been my favorite, though more so before the nerf. It's one of the most versatile units in the game, not just Knalgan's, with its dual-range attack, great mobility, and low cost. Damage-wise and mobility-wise it straddles the line between scout and grunt unit, which allows it to be very reactive regardles of opponent. It can chip away favorably at any unit that isn't similarly equipped with competent dual-range weaponry and outrun any of the more dedicated combat units.

Least favorite: Drake Clasher. At the other end of the spectrum, Clasher is so very limited. I get it, the added HP and martial resists give it better damage breakpoints against some common opponents, but it's hard to look at that alone and say it's better than the Fighter's extra mobility, ranged weapon, and lower price. Somewhat ironically, the matchup it's by far the best in is the mirror match due to Drake units' natural Fire resistance protecting it from being abused at range like the typical Pierce weapon of Bowmen-type units in other factions.

Just came back from a longgg break.

Favorite: Elvish Fighter - cheap and versatile, 1 movement and 60% in forest.

Least favorite: Heavy Infantry - expensive and slow, maybe only usable vs. dwarves.

Elvish Fighter is indeed underappreciated.

From the classical units it is the elven ranger. I just prefer it over elvish fighter and elvish marksman.

From the add-on units I think it is some flying unit that can heal. Flying is so overpowered in
general. Wraith/spectre are quite good too.

I also like healing units. Trolls are cool too due to regeneration.

In the addons I'd agree about flying. But official ones like Bats and Gryphons seem to have been severely weakened to compensate for flight. That's my impression.

Hi there back! :D

My favourite unit's are definitely the ones from the bandit tree. also i like the silver mage, although it isn't really that useful. My favourite race must be either the chaotic humans or the trolls. Grüü is just so cool :mrgreen:

edit: least favourite units are the scorpion ones... i just don't like playing against them. all the other ones are ok.
