A Whirling Dervish

Whirling Dervishes can only be recruited via the mercenary post for a high price.

Being valuable units in at least a small group ... It's better to use them to attack bulks, groups of enemies, rather than single ones, because ...

With their ability they can deal splash damage to a whole range of units in a short amount of time. After that, their attack range and damage given drastically decreases, which means it would be suitable to at least cover or defend them with archers, so they can use their ability again after waiting for a while.
