Maggie indicated experienced Warlords can use natural thinkamancy to telepathically convey battle orders to units on the field.
More thinkamancers have been shown than any other type of caster. Some have speculated this may indicate they have the highest probability of being popped randomly amongst the casters or some method is used to try and increase the chance. The former would fit in with the suggestion that overlords or rulers can subconsciously control when and what sort of casters are popped. The first fits with the idea in Erf that Titans select casters for sides and the long range communication ability makes them very valuable for most sides.
