Mounted Dark Elf forces consist primarily of light cavalry. These quick moving units are often used as scouts and messengers or for intimidation. The light cavalry, armed with long swords, are not particularly strong unless in large numbers. Like all of their race, Dark Elf cavalry possess an unnaturally strong resistance to magic.
Dark Elf horses are trained to obey their master's strict commands, and trust the Dark Elf's night-vision implicitly, though they possess no such talent of their own. It is said that a Dark Elf steed could have its eyes burned from it, and it would still be as sure-footed and nimble with it's Master giving direction.
