"These archers benefit from centuries of rigorous training and combat experience, and it shows in their deadly skill. Each one of them is capable of striking the target from any position and in any weather condition, be it day or night, blizzard or thunderstorm. There are recorded cases where Elven Sharpshooters lay motionless for days on end, finally to unleash a sudden fury of arrows, dispatching several foes in a split second."

(From "The Overall Description of Everything" by Master Alfus Bumblegate)

Boost this unit and it can hunt dragons on its own with her incredible ranged damage (half elemental!). Can root enemies. Arethi elves may claim that they are the masters of the bow, but this Sharpshooter knows better.
