The Hills Have Eyes

By Turin Turumarth - 17th June 2011 - 20:27 PM

This week's guide is about Hwaldar's Summon The Hillmen ability. This guide explains how Hwaldar, Chief of the Hillmen of Rhudaur, can defeat most heroes.

At level five, Hwaldar gains the ability to summon two hordes of Rhudaur Spearmen hordes. At level ten, he summons an additional horde of Rhudaur Spearmen and Axe Throwers. These Hillmen lack a Thrall Master so they cannot be killed as easily, and they quickly slaughter most heroes when they are under Hwaldar's Leadership.

Killing a hero can be hard to pull off, as cavalry heroes and all elven heroes can escape quickly. This can be solved with a little power called Fell Wind.

The combination of Hillmen and Fell Wind will kill most weak and medium strength heroes. Although this can be pulled off in any order, where you could haphazardly throw the two powers together, Hillmen summon followed by Fell Wind will get it done more efficiently because the enemy hero will take damage the entire time.

Normal heroes with 'hero armor' like Lurtz, Boromir, and Haldir are very vulnerable to this strategy. However, powerful heroes with 'heavy hero armor' and heroes with splash damage will fair better. Against heroes with healing abilities, this trick won't end well. Mounted heroes have almost no chance to survive due to the high damage they take from the summoned pikemen.

If you use this tip liberally, with caution, it will be a very dangerous thing indeed.
