    headhunters are good for killing units but not knights or footmen or ghouls or stuff like that like mages and weaker units. They are ok for killing buildings. Headhunters are the first anti air for orc so they are kinda valuable. I dont really use troll docters.

    Double double posting: Havocidal and FallenFootman.....

    HH aren't too good at attacking buildings. Grunts do that while I use HH to hit annoying things.

    u need HH to win dryads/archer combo.... of course with the help of the friendly shaman...

    as for hunt/dryads wyverns would make the most sense

    anyway i think HH can be quite impt in elf battles... the archer/dott or archer/dryad combo is gettin common now... if u use chunky units like grunts the dott will send them flying into the air...

    tarns with shamys, docs and TC with endurance aura unbeatable even for archers it always work for me. :shoot

    But slowness is a real weakness. I could shoot you down with Dryads and Archers easily before you even reached me..... and you'll have to contend with my DH as well.

    on the other hand... the orc can get wyverns way faster than gryphs... and if done right... the enemy's archmage is gonna pay for it after being purged... oh and some lightning shield would be nice... i guess now humans/orcs are pretty much balanced in 1.06...

    I still thought the Elven Rangers were better. Fully upgraded, those guys did some monster damage. :D

    Hard to micro effectively in that game, though, so I'd sometimes end up getting a few of my Rangers and Mages killed. But hey, that combo hurt like hell. :D

    Alone Headhunters are pretty durn good, but BL really makes HH's shine. Their high damage is made SO much more dangerous when paired with a faster attack speed.

    yes, the problem with them is their slow attack speed. and you need some meat to protect them. if u can pull that of, they aren't that bad i guess.

    Not in every single aspect. Just not used 'cos there's better counters and units for the HH.
