wonderfull work guys , congratulations , Galadriel is powerfull specially in the begining livels but may I ask if there will be more editing for this faction like adding the silverthorn arrows to the archers ? and if Galadriel will replace Frodo when the ring is being brought to the castle ? also Sauron is less powerfull , is there any plan to modify ?

thanks guys and keep on the nice work

Hey!

- Lothlórien has an arrow upgrade in their Mallorn Bows. Why would they need another?
- Frodo will be the Ring Hero for all good factions minus Erebor, where he will be replaced by Bilbo.
- He's less powerful than what?

ok I thought that it was a double ability for the arrows but of course it's ok and they are effective already , for Frodo I hoped to see a ring hero more powerfull like Galadriel but it's ok your work is always nice specially for all the new changes , for Sauron I only expected that he has Balrog for ex in his abilities but in the end you gave the mod very beautiful changes and I can immagine how much time it took from you to give us a great work .

thank you for answer and sorry for disturb . best wishes

Hi guys,

Just an FYI but I've noticed a very minor bug when playing as the new Lothlórien faction (which is awesome by the way - really fantastic work!). If I get the 'Marchwarden' upgrade for the fortress, when it completes I get the sound-effect and on-screen message for 'Upgrade - Silverthorn Arrows' and none of the Marchwarden units appear on the roof. It's only a very minor thing and doesn't affect the game play at all but I though I'd let you know just in case!

Keep up the great work! Can't wait to see what comes next!

Cheers,

ConTheJedi
