Acolytes are human beings who have given themselves over to the power of Ner'zhul and the Scourge. These bitter, fanatical men and women will stop at nothing to promote the Lich King's will and maintain the secrecy and dominance of the Cult of the Damned. They view their own deaths and the possibility of becoming undead as the ultimate rewards for their service to Ner'zhul.
Acolytes do not need to maintain buildings under construction. Buildings will continue construction on their own (like StarCraft Protoss).
Acolytes summon a Haunted Gold Mine. They can then collect Gold using their magical powers. Acolytes do not need to carry Gold from the Haunted Gold mine to the Necropolis. You can place up to 5 Acolytes on a Haunted Gold Mine. Haunted Gold Mines do not need to be placed on Blight. Acolytes Unsummon Haunted Gold Mines after they are empty.
A Banished Acolyte can still harvest Gold since their harvesting is considered magical.
