"Minotaurs make an effective melee infantry. The result of Ancient Ones' more aducious Life Threads experiments, Minotaurs are intelligent but vicous, and difficult to control."
Minotaurs (also called Minos) are good defensive troops with heavy weapons such as hammers and axes. You shouldn't put Minos in battle, because at least 2 of them die when you attack a lv 5+ wild. They should only be used in defense.
Minotaurs are the single most effective troop to train using infusions during a non-elite power challenge. They offer the highest power/population ratio of any troop. If you have no infusions, conscripts are the best power/speed ratio.

Use this troop in on your own risk- it's a very weak troop in battle, and dies fast. However, at least train them, as every troop is useful.
