This imo is the strongest unit in Skirmish mode. Has both Glave which is already pretty OP and also a very powerful bow. You can't hit them in close range because of the "dance" hit and runaway tactic.
This class is still overpowerd as hell. Delivers between 40 and 80 arrow dmg on upperbody hits on lower classes with improved armor (Clan warrior for example) while it takes you 4-7 hits to take one Guard down. Glaive is madness aswell, kills you most likely with a 80 dmg foot hit, not addressing the pain in the ass with horse/glaive/archery you will eventually experience with that troop.
