"Some say that these tree spirits have existed in Ardania long before the men. Others believe that demonwoods are the creation of Andrevus the Dark Mage. But the one point upon which all are agreed: demonwoods, no matter their history, harbor ferocious hatred towards all other creatures."

- From "The Overall Description of Everything" by Master Alfus Bumblegate

As someone would suspect a being made of wood, this unit is susceptible to Elemental Magic damage. Attack it with your spell casters, as it's only resistant to Life Magic. Avoid melee if you don't have decently tough units, as it can root yours when attacking them and reduce their resistances.
