How to Save Horses from Wargs under Palantir

By BcVcB - 24th September 2009 - 19:04 PM

In this edition of Tip of the Week, we will show you how to save your horses from wargs under palantir.

This is a tip for Forces of Light players but can also be used for Forces of Darkness in team games. We all know how annoying it can be when you are harassing an Isengard mill and then from nowhere a battalion of wargs comes chasing you and then Palantir gets put into affect giving them added speed and they absolutely destroy your horses. Well, there is a way to avoid that!

The simple solution to the problems is: Zig-Zag! Simply run your horses in a zig-zag formation or circular motion so the wargs will not be able to hit you. Once the timer on their Warchant or Howl has ran out you can then turn around and kill them!

Make sure you do not stay in a straight line for too long, otherwise the wargs will be able to damage you. However if you try and zig-zag too much, you will turn back on yourself and the wargs will be able to get some free hits.

This can also be used in team games when you are playing as Isengard and your opponent has wargs/knights/rohirrim chasing you under palantir. Just zig-zag your wargs and you will remain harm free.

A way which is just as effective but requires less micro and therefore allows you to concentrate on other places of the map at the same time is to hold down the Alt key on your keyboard and then place several waypoints after another. You can see it in this video:
