Unit elite skirmisher.png

The Elite Skirmisher is an upgraded version of the Skirmisher and it is found on the third page, first column, first row of the Upgrades section. The technology 'To Elite Skirmisher' (researched in the Archery Range) is required before training this unit and they have even higher pierce armor and health than the Skirmisher. This unit is quite prone to melee units so it is recommended not to use it against them. The high pierce armor of this unit make them hard to kill by almost all ranged units especially in early game. The Elite Skirmisher is affected by the blacksmith techs Archer Armor 1 and 2 as well as Master Archery 1 and 2. Use this unit to fight enemy archers and most other ranged units (except the Skirmisher and its upgrades, of course).
