The Ninja is an advanced class in Heroes of Might and Magic IV, based on Death Magic and Scouting. A ninja's attacks inflict poison on their target.

Skills Edit

The Ninja is most likely to learn Scouting and Death Magic and fairly likely to learn the Combat and Chaos magic skills. Ninjas cannot learn Nobility, Life Magic or Nature Magic when leveling up unless some basic training in those skills is already known.

Comments Edit

A poison attack can help the Ninja do a lot of damage, particularly if their Demonology skill is high, but unless they have the Combat skill, fighting should usually be avoided.

Attacking with a creature first, to help the ninja avoid retaliation, or just casting spells, are the best ways to use the ninja.
