"Of Khamûl it is said here that he was the most ready of all the Nazgûl after the Black Captain himself, to perceive the presence of the Ring, but also the one whose power was most confused and diminished by daylight."
Unfinished Tales, Part Three: The Third Age: "The Hunt for the Ring"

Strategy

Wisely used, Khamûl can be a severe pain for the enemies of Mordor. His aura allows him to deal damage to all nearby buildings while staying in the cover of orcs, and his Black Easterlings can tear down any buildings as fast as Grond and are much stronger against other units. His spy ability allows the player to reveal all nearby enemy movement near the building on which it was cast. Khamûl can be an extremely dangerous hero if used properly: You can just make him stand at a place with tons of expendable orc warriors as meat shields and all buildings in his vicinity will be slowly destroyed.
