The label of Peon denotes the lowest station amongst those in the OrcishHorde. Inferior in all skills of worth, these dredges are relegated to menial tasks such as harvesting lumber and mining gold. Their labor is also required for the construction and maintenance of buildings necessary to support the vast undertakings of the Horde. Downtrodden, but exceedingly loyal, the orc peons toil endlessly to provide for the greater Horde.
The Orc worker, he functions much like a Peasant by harvesting gold and lumber. Peons build from the inside, where they can be redirected for further instructions after the completion of their building.
In addition to their role as a worker, Peons can defend themselves by retreating into Orc Burrows to defend themselves from hostile enemies. Peons can also benefit from Pillage, but due to their extremely low damage and slow attack speed, it generally isn't recommended to use them for raiding.
