Aragorn

Heir to the Throne of Gondor

IPB Image

Attributes

Cost: 3500
Shortcut: A

Health: Rank 5 - 1500 (increases 100 per level)
Rank 6 - 1600

Melee Damage:
Rank 5 - 72 (increases 10 per level)
Rank 6 - 82

Powers

Athelas: [T]
Description: Heals about 50% of nearby friendly heroes. This is very useful in the middle of a battle where lots of your heroes are nearly dead and you can heal them all at once.

Blade Master: [B]
Description: Gives Aragorn a +100% damage, +100% armor boost for about 30 seconds.

Leadership:

Description: Gives nearby friendly units a +50% damage, +200% combat experience bonus.

Elendil: [D]
Description: Causes nearby enemy units to flee in terror. Although most units will have banners upgraded by the time Aragorn is around, it is also valuable for canceling the effects of War Chant.

Oathbreakers: [R]
Required Rank: 10
Description: Summons a horde from the Army of the Dead for a short period of time. This is Aragorn's greatest ability and can wipe out an entire army with the advantage of surprise.

Upgrades

Anduril:
Cost: 2 PP
Description: This spell can be bought from Rohan's Evenstar and gives Aragorn a +100% damage, +50% armor, +25% speed bonus for the rest of the game.

Creeping Abilities

Goblins: Never a problem, just use "G" for Guard.

Wargs: Not a problem either as Aragorn's health is strong enough to melee the wargs without worry.

Trolls: Trolls can sometimes get a lucky hit on Aragorn and knock him to the ground. If this happens just use Athelas and Blade Master if necessary before finishing off the lair.


Eomer

Third Marshal of the Riddenmark
IPB Image

Attributes

Cost: 1400
Shortcut: E

Health: Rank 1 - 1200 (increases 60 per level)
Rank 2 - 1260

Melee Damage: Rank 1 - 40 (increases 10 per level)
Rank 2 - 50

Powers

Spear Throw: [T]
Description: Single powerful attack that throws a spear at the targeted unit or hero. Not only is this useful for damaging an enemy hero, it has an impressive 25 sec. recharge time and can be especially used against horse battalions.

Outlaw Leadership:
Required Rank: 2
Description: Gives resources for every enemy unit killed. The amount of money given increases as units gain rank or important heroes. This ability is especially useful for your mid game economy.

Leadership:
Required Rank: 4
Description: Gives nearby friendly horse units a +60 damage, +50 combat experience bonus.


Creeping abilities


Goblins: Just trample the goblins on horse and melee the lair.

Wargs: Throw a spear at one of the wargs before fighting the other, then finish off the lair.

Trolls: It will take two spears to weaken the troll enough to kill it, then kill the lair.


Eowyn

Shieldmaiden of Rohan
IPB Image


Attributes

Cost: 1200
Shortcut: W

Health: Rank 1 - 800 (increases 60 per level)
Rank 2 - 860

Melee Damage: Rank 1 - 40 (increases 10 per level)
Rank 2 - 50

Powers

Smite: [T]
Description: Single powerful attack that throws a spear at the targeted unit or hero. This attack has a bonus against monster units, such as Nazguls or Trolls, which makes Eowyn a necessary hero against Mordor in late game.

Disguise: [D]
Required Rank: 4
Description: This ability simply changes Eowyn's looks so that she appears to be a Rohirrim unit. Not at all a very necessary power though.

Shield Maiden: [N]
Required Rank: 5
Description: Gives Eowyn a +55% armor bonus for a short period of time. This might be useful when charging an enemy army so that she won't die as quickly.

Creeping Abilities

Goblins: Just trample the goblins on her horse and melee the lair.

Wargs: Smite one of the wargs before fighting the other, then finish off the lair.

Trolls: It will take two Smites to bring down the troll, then allowing you to kill the lair.


Gimli

Dwarf of the Lonely Mountain
IPB Image

Attributes

Cost: 2500
Shortcut: G

Health: Rank 1 - 2000 (increases 60 per level)
Rank 2 - 2060

Melee Damage: Rank 1 - 60 (increases 10 per level)
Rank 2 - 70

Powers

Axe Throw: [T]
Description: Single powerful attack that throws an axe at the targeted unit or hero. This ability doesn't do any significant damage to heroes but deals a lot of splash damage to units.

Leap Attack: [C]
Required Rank: 3
Description: Gimli leaps to the targeted area and lands on the ground dealing a massive splash damage effect. Not only is this useful for killing a few battalions in one move, it can also be used as a distraction or to retreat from a risky situation.

Slayer: [R]
Required Rank: 7
Description: Gives Gimli a +100% damage, +100% speed boost for about 45 seconds. This gives Gimli's melee attack a knock-back effect to all units and heroes, which makes Gimli an extremely devastating hero in any battle once he reaches this level.

Creeping Abilities

Goblins: Not a problem for Gimli since his armor is so high.

Wargs: Also not a problem, but axe throw can be used on one the wargs to kill it before taking out the other.

Trolls: Axe Throw should be used at least twice against the troll if Gimli is rank 1 as he can be knocked over several times. But Leap Attack can also be used as backup to knock the troll down and melee it before proceeding with the lair.



Legolas

Elven Prince of Mirkwood
IPB Image

Attributes

Cost: 3000
Shortcut: S

Health: Rank 1 - 1000 (increases 60 per level)
Rank 2 - 1060

Melee Damage: Rank 1 - 40 (increases 10 per level)
Rank 2 - 50

Ranged Damage: Rank 1 - 60 (increases 10 per level)
Rank 2 - 70

Powers

Hawk Strike: [K]
Description: Releases two powerful arrows at the targeted hero or unit with a massive splash damage effect. This power alone has been seen to take out a whole battalion in one shot, besides dealing a considerable amount of damage to most heroes.

Knife Fighter: [F]
Required Rank: 2
Description: Gives Legolas a +20% armor bonus for a short period of time. Since his melee damage is weaker than in ranged mode, this shouldn't be used very often but for retreating from a battle when he is being chased.

Train Archers: [T]
Required Rank: 4
Description: Gives the targeted area of friendly archer units a small boost to their rank.

Arrow Wind: [W]
Required Rank: 7
Description: Shoots scores of consecutive arrows at the targeted area. Not only can this be used to damage several battalions at once, it can also deal exceptional damage to a single hero if in range.

Creeping Abilities

Goblins: Not a problem since Legolas is far out of the goblins' range when shooting arrows.

Wargs: It only takes 4-5 normal shots to kill a warg, so this one doesn't take long for Legolas to creep.

Trolls: Hawk Strike can be used to bring the troll down to yellow health, followed by normal arrows to finish it off.



Merry

Loyal Hobbit of Rohan
IPB Image

Attributes

Cost: 100
Shortcut: M

Health: Rank 1 - 200 (increases 20 per level)
Rank 2 - 220

Melee Damage: Rank 1 - 20 (increases 10 per level)
Rank 2 - 30

Ranged Damage: Rank 2 - 30 (increases 10 per level)
Rank 2 - 40

Powers

Toggle Weapon: [T]
Description: Allows Merry to switch between ranged (throwing rocks) mode and melee (sword) mode.

Elven Cloak: [C]
Description: Becomes invisible when standing still. Not only is this ability useful for spying on the enemy territory, it is also usually used to escape from enemy units to allow Merry to heal.

Creeping Abilities

Goblins: Not too much trouble even though Merry will usually finish with about half of his health remaining. Using "G" for Guard is usually easiest so that Merry will automatically kill the goblins that are respawned while continuing with the lair.

Wargs: Merry will die if you attempt to melee the wargs. So if you throw rocks at the corner of the lair, the wargs will then stay in place so that you can finish them off with rocks.

Trolls: Although it is possible to creep troll lairs, it is not advised as it is time consuming and risky. Just wait until the troll is on the opposite side of the lair and throw rocks at the corner of the lair, retreating when the troll comes, near and repeating.


Theoden

King of Rohan
IPB Image

Attributes

Cost: 1200
Shortcut: T

Health:
Rank 1 - 900 (increases 60 per level)
Rank 2 - 960

Melee Damage: Rank 1 - 50 (increases 10 per level)
Rank 2 - 60

Powers


Leadership:
Description: Gives nearby friendly units a +50% damage, +50% armor bonus.

Glorious Charge: [C]
Required Rank: 4
Description: Gives Theoden and nearby horse units a +30% damage, +75% armor bonus for a short period of time. Affected units also don't slow down when they trample enemy units.

King's Favor: [K]
Required Rank: 6
Description: Gives the targeted area of friendly units a small boost to their rank.

Creeping Abilities

Goblins: Not a problem as Theoden can simply trample the goblins on his horse and then melee the lair.

Wargs: Theoden at rank 1 unfortunately has some weak armor and will get to red health if you melee the wargs, so you will need a battalion of Rohirrim to help or at least Merry.

Trolls: Theoden is too weak against trolls and has no special powers for support, so a battalion of Rohirrim Archers will usually be enough to help.
