This update brings changes to the Elven Spellbook and enhances the Elven gameplay with three new units.


Spellbook


  • The Elven Wood spell has been replaced with:
    • Free Peoples of Eriador - allows the construction of Bree-land Taverns at Settlements.
  • The Woodland Realm spell has been removed and the Elven Wood spell now takes its place in Tier 2.

Structures


  • Bree-land Tavern - inspired by the famous Prancing Pony, this structure can be built at Settlements at the cost of 750 resources. It allows you to enlist the aid of various travellers and mercenaries from Eriador.

  • Mirkwood Barracks is now available by default and had its cost increased from 350 to 500 resources.

Units


  • Riders of Buckland - light cavalry units adept at destroying buildings and disrupting ranged units. Aside from being vulnerable to spearmen and pikemen, it also cannot stay in prolonged combat with proper cavalry units. They are trained at Bree-land Taverns at the cost of 500 resources.

  • Dúnedain - skilled rangers of the north, equipped with both sword and bow. They are trained at Bree-land Taverns at the cost of 600 resources and are a good mid and late game unit.
    • Note: Dúnedain are limited to 3 battalions at a time.
  • Ered Luin Adventurers - veteran Dwarven warriors from the Blue mountains. They are one of the most heavily armored units in the game and excel in combat against Orcs and Uruks. They are trained at rank 2 Bree-land Taverns at the cost of 1000 resources. They have the following abilities:
    • Rank 1: Veterans of Azanulbizar - Ered Luin Adventurers deal 50% more damage to Orc and Uruks. Nearby Dwarven Guardians gain +25% Attack.
    • Rank 2: Baruk Khazâd! - Attacks deal splash damage and knockback units in a small radius. Ered Luin Adventurers gain +25% Speed. Lasts for 15 seconds.
    • Rank 3: Trade Links - Increases the resource production of a target friendly structure by 250% for 60 seconds.
    • Note: Ered Luin Adventurers are limited to one battalion at a time.

That would be all for this update. I hope you like the changes and additions and feel free to post any suggestions and report any bugs you find in the current released version of Middle-earth Extended Edition.

Hi how do you fix the camera? It's zoomed in so close it's unplayable.

The zoom distance is often set in the maps themselves and ignores the default settings. Therefore, I can't really help you with this. Sorry :/

Hi again, I've checked everything and it seems to be all the maps that this mod adds that are too zoomed in. After fixes, all the others are now fine. Is there a way to remove the maps added by this mod, or a fix you could do for it?

If you don't like the new maps you don't have to play them. These are maps made by some of the best (and probably the best) BFME mappers. If you want the camera to be zoomed out further, you can edit the maps yourself, as the default zoom distance is a very subjective thing.

Can you add more heroes for some fractions?
I'm loved to make armies lead by many heroes
Harad and Gondor need's more heroes!

Heroes can't be added so easily. Each one has to have a specific purpose in a faction's gameplay. Adding them for the sake of role-playing is counterproductive. That being said, Harad will perhaps receive one more hero.

absolutely insane images of the new units from the Bree-land tavern, getting excited for the next update to come, do we have an ETA on said update, sorry if its a rude question, iv'e just been playing your mod almost since the start and i get very impatient waiting for the next amazing things to be added haha, i do apologize.

My plan for the next version was for it to include both the "Free peoples of Eriador" update and a Harad update. However, with my second year of uni starting, I will probably release a smaller new version with only this update and bug fixes included.

Don't worry about your impatience, I was the same a few years ago :D!

thanks for the swift reply, i was also wandering if you know of any servers that allow you to play this mod online?
i really enjoy this mod but atm it is very limited when playing against the ai as only the original factions are able to function.

From what I know you can play this mod on the T3A:Online server, but don't update the launcher to the newest version. Gameranger and Tunngle should both let you use mods.

I love the custom elven faction! There a few bugs, but nothing that ruined it for me. The invisible barracks was a little annoying though. I just wish the elves would've maybe had some cavalry, and I wish the Rivindell and lorien barracks would've been separate. Overall a good mod and I look forward to later versions! Also I don't mean to be annoying, but if you've seen the new hobbit movie than using the armor that elrond and his riders are wearing for the upgraded elven warriors armor would be…
