As their name implies, Assassins are capable of assassinating enemies. They are powerful in that sense and are very fast and have an obscenely strong Poison - the strongest in the entire game. However, they are very ineffective against buildings and fall quickly to towers. Luckily, they are cheap to produce and, with a few assassination blows, they pay for themselves. Given that Dark Infantry don't scale well, and that Assassins make a nice upgrade for the Dark Elven towers, their arrival should announce the beginning of the Sacrifice!
