* ArrowsOnFire: Primarily used by the [[CombatPragmatist Orcs]], who shoot incendiary arrows/bolts from their bows and crossbows, often with devastating effect against the undead (primarily ghosts) and Woses. One wonders as to why the other races never thought of using burning arrows and torches (which the Orcs also use) as a simple and easy way of combating the fire-weak undead without having to train expensive and delicate mages...but the reason rears its ugly head before long. And the [[GenreBlind other reason]] follows soon after.

** Yet another very similar Cavalry-moment occurs in the ''Son of the Black Eye'' scenario, 'Clash of Armies'. [[BigBad Earl Lanbec'h]] and his elvish and dwarvish allies Thelarion and Durstang have been besieging the Orcish city of Prestim for four days when the Shamans of the Orcish Great Council show up, [[AwesomeMoments with the Great Horde behind them]] ready to steamroll the opposition. Lanbec'h retreats immediately, and the player wins the mission by simply having held out that long.

* SquishyWizard: The Mage, Dark Adept, and Elvish Shaman all fit this trope. Even their leveled forms are somewhat more fragile than main-line troops of the same level.
** The Dark Adept is a pretty extreme example in that he has no melee attack ''at all''.

** At the conclusion of ''Delfador's Memoirs'', the eponymous mage's warning to his allies that undead were easier to summon as a result of the {{Big Bad}}'s fell magic is tantamount to Societal Disruption on a Regional or Continental scope.
