Greetings, companions of the Edain!
Today we released Patch 4.4.1 for the Edain 4.0 Demo. You can get the update by updating the mod through the Edain Launcher.
In case you don't have a version of Edain installed already, you first have to download the basic version as a complete package by clicking on the banner below. After installing Edain, use the Update Function of the Edain Launcher to get the latest version. You may have to update several times until the launcher shows that no newer version is available anymore.
Should you encounter any problems with the mod, feel free to stop by in our Support Forums!
We're delighted to present you a new custom hero class for version 4.4.1: The Elven Lord! We originally planned to release him in version 4.4 alongside Rivendell. But we decided to hold him back a bit and take the time we needed to polish him to perfection. Fitting perfectly with the latest faction of Imladris, you can now create a powerful Elven melee hero on top of the old Elven archer. The Elven Lord is a subclass of the Hero of the Free People. He comes with many different designs you can mix and match, ranging from the silver armour of Rivendell in the Third Age to a soldier of Mirkwood or Thranduil's Palace guards.
Attention: To choose a custom hero with Rohan or Imladris, first click on desired hero's name in the list (even though it's greyed out!) and then press the first character of their name on your keyboard.
Apart from the Elven Lord, this update mainly brings important fixes to the most severe bugs of version 4.4. Among other things, Angmar, the Dwarves and Rivendell should now correctly build defense towers. Additionally, we made several balance tweaks:
We know that some abilities of the Loremasters still are problematic, but reworking them is beyond the scope of this small bugfix update. We will be working on this problem as well as the promised revamp of siege weapons and defenses for the next big version.
Until then, have fun playing!

You could think im exxagerating the value of this mod,but i can only tell you : try with your hands. Edain mod is without any doubt the best RTS based on the LotR series,and,but this is just my opinion,the best RTS overall. While being much more true to tolkien than any other EA's work,it combines great complexity with good-balance in an excellent way. But what,above all things,makes this mod stand out are the models of the units,heroes and buildings,just take a look to the gallery on the site…

Mordor and other evil factions are overpowered including their heroes and ringheroes. Especially Lorien and Imladris are too weak and their ringheros are not powerful enough to be ringheroes (and Galadriel is far too weak to be Galadriel. Make it to be like in the Lone Wolf mod: two palantir and stronger powers, etc.)... All ringheroes should be as powerful as Sauron, because now it's not fair. Almost all good factions are underpowered. Ents should be better than trolls (except armoured ones), because…
