Hailing from the Far East, these ninjas have come to offer their services to your ever-growing empire. Ninjas are equipped with shurikens which they use in battle against their enemies.
They deal fairly low damage but make up for it with the ability to hit up to three nearby enemies at once with their attacks, so their damage can essentially be tripled against clumped enemies. Ninjas work best behind Dwarven Hurlers or Trolls for low levels; high levels should use other formations.
Ninjas may be evolved into Senju Ninjas at level 44. Senju Ninjas possess the Illusion ability, where their attacks have a chance of hitting up to six units at once. They are often used by high level players due to their relatively high damage against the enemy's front lines depending on their formation.
With the technology "Recruitment Speed" at Level 5, Ninjas train at 1 minute.
