The following changes have been made:

- Costs of safe haven reduced to 1000, cost of camouflaged mist to 500

- Increased recharge time of Thranduil mobilization by 30%

- Revised armor of bow-sword-hybrids (less vulnerable to arrows)

- Curstomized the trample damage of every rider hero

* Cost increased to 450, CP 60
* Cost of Beorning Hut increased to 500
* Damage in human form decreased to 600, in bear form decreased to 150
* Are more vulnerable to arrows

- Dragonslayer: damage with sword decreased to 800 (1250 with forged blades), with Mace decreased to 400 (650 with forged blades)

- Thranduil: Damage decreased to 280, surface damage with two swords by 20%

- Legolas Hawk Strike damage reduced and racharge time increased

- Mirkwood Swordmen: Damage decreased to 40, with blades 120, formation decreased to +50% armor, 50% damage

- Mirkwood Bowmen: increased damage to 24, with silverthornarrows additional 30 MAGIC

- Isengard Ballista: Cant any longer trample over any units

- Sorted Galadriel's skill set

- Galadhrim and Haldir's Galadhrim at Rohan:
* Cause with the bow +50% damage against other ranged infantry
* Cause with the sword +50% damage against other melee infantry, but not against archers

Ealendril, I have a few questions. From the begining I have a problem when playing Legendary hero. Command points from over a 1000 get back to 900 and remain stuck at that number. Is it a bug or it's supposed to be like that? Elves are great! Thank you for another release! Hope more will follow. :) . I know it's still early to talk about new faction, but could you please release one of evil faction? Doesn't matter which one, Angmar or Goblins. Balance is not even. There are 4 good and 2 evil factions released so far. I noticed that Beornings can be ridden. How can we do that? Cheers! :)

If the next faction will be evil, i guess it will be angmar, cause they said that misty Mountains are so different that they require the most work

Everytime I play Elves against Mordor I'm rekt. Any strategies that might help, mates?

Go on the offensive. I found that playing defensively (and then sending is massive attacks) is a no win situation, because Mordor relies a lot on the number of units. Right? One orc horde is inconsequential, but ten of them will wear your units down, at absolutely no cost to Mordor. Park your army outside their base and reinforce it constantly; the lorien units' running ability will allow for quick reinforcement. Also, get banner carrier early. It's not too expensive, and in the long run you will be saving a lot of money by not having to replace your units as often. That passive lembas bread ability will make your men last about five times longer, so long as you rotate your depleted hordes.

EDIT: Also, secure those extra resource build plots! That will make your life a lot easier! :)

Hope that helps! I used this strategy against a brutal AI last night and it worked like magic.

Ignore lorien units, spam mirkwood units 50/50 archers and swordsmen. Also have three ministrels on auto-sing. Get Legolas and Galadriel. Then get magic arrows and ents and demoish everything. (This was before the patch though. +70% armor for the swordsmen were kinda op, the lorien faction were on par if not better than the Ered Mithin dwarves)

On the map mirkwood she can be played as a permanent hero - on all other maps she's just a summon. Most of our fans liked the implementation as a summon more, therefore she stayed as a summon. :) (we had a poll about that some weeks ago)

Wow that was a really quick reply! Anyways, that's actually pretty awesome. Love that playing on different maps can have different effects on each faction. Keep up the good work!

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I played the Mirkwood map and I didn't see any way to get her as a permanent hero. She wasn't an option at the Mirkwood fortress or the Lorien one. Also, the summon power was still available.

Because it's just integrated for the 6-player map.^^ This one map is for the players who really wanted to ahve her as a permanent hero.

Cyanide and all you guys, sorry for the false alarm! I played several games after this release, about five, with Dwarves and Lorien, and there is no command points problem anymore! They stay at 1800 and you can play a normal game without having to worry. :) . Sorry again! . Gnomi, thanx for the information!!! You guys are the best. :DDD . Cheers!

Hey Edain team, I'm not sure if this was intentional but if u break down a building while it is being built outside of the castle, you get no refund... This has become a big problem when first starting the game, a wrong click can cost you thousands when dealing with outposts

Quick 2 questions for you guys:

1. I noticed that if I play in the fortress maps (like Helm's Deep, Isengard, Minas Morgal) the AI will not build siege engines to attack the gate. However, when you have a regular castle setup (like Gondor, Dwarves and Rohan have) the AI will do so without any issue. Are there certain conditions to make them do so?

2. I noticed that Isengard's camp plot does not go away after they have been defeated, so their camp will have their citadel there with no way to remove it. It's not just one map, I've seen it on at least 2. Is there a way to get around it?

Thanks in advance!

Hey Edain Team, I was wondering if there were any plans to add the silver Mirkwood armor that Feren wears, as does Thranduil's captains (elves on horseback that ride into Dale with him). If not, would it be possible to add ithe armor as an option in the CAH builder? I would love to give my elven hero some new duds! I can provide pictures, if you'd like.

No, it's not the same. Arnor has a different spellbook and we can't change the spellbook through upgrades - therefore Arnor would also have the army of the dead and so on.

First of all, thank you for having answered.

Anyways, I meant to say that it would be pretty awesome to choose Anor directly from the skirmish tab as if it were a stand alone faction.
Still technically impossible?

I love Glorfindels Winderider, in my opinion best unit of the game.
It's such a pity; you can have it only in a few maps.

There's a maximum amount of factions we can add and by adding Arnor this way we have room for even more other factions. :)
