— Official Description


The assassin is a stealthy mercenary unit that uses a black outfit to stay hidden from enemies in long range. He carries a grappling hook next to his sabre, which he can use to scale walls and gatehouses.

The assassin is recruited at the mercenary post.



  • Use assassins to stealthily approach harass the enemy's exposed buildings and mines. They can even get into a castle and demolish a few vital buildings.
  • Assassins can capture gatehouses if they land on the top of them, providing easy access for the main army into the castle.
