Though the hearty Knights of Azeroth were destroyed during the First War, the shining Knights of Lordaeron still continue to serve amongst the warriors of the Alliance. These heavily armored warriors use mighty swords in combat which can damage enemy warriors up to several feet away. The Knights' speed and mobility mark them as the most versatile warriors of the Alliance.

Mighty warrior. Can learn the Pulverize ability. Attacks land units.

Tauren are the most powerful ground melee unit. Use Shaman's Bloodlust to make Tauren even more powerful. Typically you will want to research Pulverize after you have trained three Tauren or as soon as your Tauren are enroute to the enemy, whichever comes first.

Always combine Tauren with Shamans using Bloodlust.
