Trained since youth to be swift, silent, and deadly, Scouts spend much of their lives deep in the wild, apart from their brethren. After the alliance with the Beast Horde, they learned yet more ways of the wild, and turned all their craft to defeating the Hellbourne. Though many view them as aloof, none doubt the importance of Scouts in the war against the daemons, as the countless enemy corpses, dead by a single blow, attest.
The Scout is one of the fastest and most elusive heroes in the game when Vanished, while Electric Eyes are perfect for intelligence and counter-intelligence. When the Scout obtains enough damage items, he can output a huge amount of spike Physical Damage.
