Tip of the Week - How to Prevent Gandalf Laming

By BcVcB - 17th July 2009 - 00:58 AM

This tip by KaiTo`KiD and with a video by EV1L shows how to prevent Gandalf from leveling up too fast from killing your horses.

As we are all aware, when Gandalf the White comes out it can be a pain in the neck, especially when you are trying to harass farms. So doing this one sneaky move you can maintain your harassment and keep Gandalf's rank low at the same time.

When you are attacking your opponent's farms, and out of nowhere Gandalf comes, your first instinct is to run away in line formation since this gives a defence bonus. But that is the worst thing to do since he could use Istari Light, which kills horses with one hit and because of its damage range it can hit more than one horse. So to prevent this the best thing to do is put the horses in wedge formation: Then it only kills one Knight or Rohirrim (unless they are clumped together because they are for example near a cliff or you switched from line to wedge formation too late). Here are screenshots to show it more clearly:

As you can see, Gandalf only managed to kill one of the horses (the one next to the horse that died only fell on the ground but does not die).

This video shows the trick in motion:
