A Shade is created by sacrificing an Acolyte with the Sacrificial Pit. A Shade is an invisible ground unit without an attack that can see invisible units. This unit is used to spy on the enemy or to look for other invisible units.
Place Shades next to enemy expansion Gold Mines so that you will know if the enemy attempts to expand there.
Select a Shade and right-click on an enemy Hero. It will follow that Hero wherever they go and by doing that you'll know where their army goes since most players always bring their Hero with their army.
Place Shades in enemy towns so you can see what they are building and doing
