I was playing my 28th game last night and came across a peculiar unit, named an "Envoy".. it didn't have a weapon so I didnt bother attacking it. Can someone tell me what this fellow does?

It's just a scout unit. It's a unique Dutch unit. It has a very weak attack, low HP, and can't pick up treasures but has a wide line of site.

Envoys also count 0 population and only 50 food to make. So you can pump out lots of them to peer around the map.

Does anyone bother building them? By the time you can afford the food I find that I don't need them.

I never build them, but I find the free one at the start very useful.

LMFAO! I think (as tribal said) you mean hemophiliac. When you use big words make sure you know what they mean...

FYI: Hyochondriac is a person who has hypochondriasis and they have high anxiety about their health.

Scouts, very useful. If map control is contestable, I like to build them to do two things:
Monitor hunting and gold
At 'hot' spots to check for development or movement

Otherwise I just use the first one to scout and don't bother with the others.

I find them quite neat. One thing I have to see though, are Envoys with Town Watch + Inquisition. Their LOS would be insane, insane being modest.

Oprichniks are the best units in AoE3. Why? It's elementary, they're Horse-riding Russian Pirates, nothing beats Horse-riding Russian Pirates.

Well, only the Spanish have Inquizition. However, there is a Dutch card, 'TEAM 1 Envoy', which can enable the Spanish to have the envoy.

Isn't Inquisition a Team card?
