At the time of the Dark Elf invasion, it was rare for warriors of Caledor to serve upon the gates, for Imrik had otherwise been true to his word that the Dragonrealm would stand alone. However, a few regiments chose to go against their prince's wishes, seeing loyalty to their comrades as more important than obedience to their prince. The Talons of Tor Caleda were made up of such forces, their defiance all the more paining to Imrik as their banner was first raised in the city from which the prince ruled.
↑Good Range: This unit has a larger range than most other units of the same class. This allows it to take out hostile missile units before they can come into firing range.
↑Martial Mastery: A rigorous selection process and relentless training have turned this unit into the perfect fighting machine. This effect is lost, however, if the unit is badly damaged.
This unit imbues the Flammable!Contact Effect and deals fire damage with its missiles. They also have Martial Mastery rather than Martial Prowess which is a better bonus to their melee stats, making them decently survivable overall. Generally, however they are a valuable unit for imbuing fire weakness and using the fire damage from Sisters of Avelorn or dragons/phoenixes to capitalize on.
Another note is that they have 70% fire resistance which is niche, but makes them incredibly resistant to such damage.
