The Orcish Demolisher has always been a standing asset to the Horde. Capable of hurling fiery projectiles over great distances, Orcish Demolishers have been the doom of many Alliance regiments. Though a small team of Orcs must always be available to man these destructive machines, unerringly Demolishers serve as the Horde's greatest siege weapon.

Long-range siege weaponry. Effective against buildings but slow and vulnerable. Can learn the Burning Oil ability. Attacks land units and trees.

Use Demolishers when assaulting enemy bases, especially on towers. Bring a few Demolishers along with your army to attack other armies.

This unit does splash damage. Check out the above stats information for the areas of damage.

Demolishers have a minimum range which means they cannot attack melee units or any units right next to them. You will have to move them away to hit targets right next to them.

Bring Peons with Demolishers to repair them during and after battle.
