Tunnelers are a new siege weapon of the Misty Mountains, their counterpart to Mordor's siege towers and Isengard's ladders. They can quickly dig a tunnel from their position to a nearby point, bypassing foes or walls and creating an entrance for your units into an opposing castle. These tunnels are not only connected to each other, but also to a network of all tunnels you own, including the tunnels in your base. However, a symbol will appear on the ground shortly before the exit erupts from the ground, giving the enemy a small window to prepare for your arrival. Furthermore, a group of tunnelers will disappear after they have dug into the ground and the tunnel will have few hitpoints and collapse after a short time - use your tunnelers carefully!
