Strategy

Because of their passive ability, Cutting Blades, the Envoys are a great counter to weak units found in the early game such as Mordor Orcs or Rohan Peasants. However, they shouldn't be used to replace Gondor Soldiers since they are not as effective against heavy armor. Combine them with other troops from the fiefdoms for maximum effect, but try not to use them to assault an enemy base as the defenses will cut them down quickly.
