Despite being titled a Siege Weapon, the Manticore is an anti-infantry weapon that's designed to slaughter hordes of enemies simultaneously, and it couldn't be better in that regard! With splash damage, carry through and the Multishot ability, the Manticore can take out many enemy units and with ease. Although it can't hit aerial targets, the Multishot ability can. This ensures that it's not entirely helpless against fliers and can even rid the area of those pesky weaker fliers that can hit grounded targets, such as Imps and Lightning Hawks.
The Manticore's limiting factor comes from its lack of mobility. While the rest of the High Elven army can run rings around their foe and strike them afar with the many other ranged weapons they have access to, the Manticore gets left behind and in most cases (well, for me at least) the Manticore is best suited for base defense instead of assault.
