Next faction to receive an update is Gundabad. Several of their heroes had some of their abilities reworked. The usefulness of several units was increased and various balance changes were made as well.


Heroes


  • Azog - the general of Sauron's northern army and the lord of Moria. He starts off at rank 5 and is recruited at the cost of 3500 resources. A bug related to his basic attacks was fixed and two of his abilities were altered:
    • Rank 6: Commander of Legions - Azog and nearby friendly units gain +25% Armor, +50% Knockback resistance and become immune to fear. Lasts for 20 seconds.
    • Rank 10: The Defiler - Azog's basic attacks deal splash damage and knockback enemies and deal 50% more damage to Structures.
  • Bolg - the son of Azog and a skilled orc captain. He starts off at rank 1 and is recruited at the cost of 1200 resources. He had one of his abilities updated:
    • Rank 7: Bodyguards - Permanently summons a horde of Half-Trolls.
  • Great Goblin - the king of Goblin-town. He starts off at rank 3 and is recruited at the cost of 1750 resources. He has received a new ability and an existing one has been altered:
    • Rank 1: King of Goblin-Town - Nearby friendly Goblin-Town Orcs gain +25% Attack and +100% Experience. Also allows Goblin-Town Orcs to be trained at the Gundabad Cave.
    • Rank 6: King's Gratitude - Gives experience to friendly units within an area.

Spellbook


  • Tier 3: Aside from allowing the Barrow-wight Tomb to be built, the Necromancer of Dol-Guldur spell now also reduces the cooldowns of hero spells by 15%. Does not affect allies.



Structures


  • Gundabad Siege Works - Siege weapon production facility. It builds the following units:
    • Battering Ram - a simple siege weapon used to break gates, walls and structures.
    • Catapult - a ranged siege weapon. Unlike their Mordor counterparts, they cannot switch their ammunition type.
  • Gundabad Orc Cave now has a buildup animation. It's rotation has been adjusted as well.
  • Minor changes have been made regarding Gundabad camps' layout.

Units


  • Isengard Porter has been replaced with the Gundabad Porter.
  • Gundabad Warriors and Gundabad Archers have been given several more texture variations.
  • Dol-Guldur Orcs have been given a new ability:
    • Rank 2: Dark Lord's Legionaries - Nearby friendly Gundabad heroes gain +25% Armor.
  • Half-Trolls have been given a new model and no longer use Mordor Orc Warriors' armor.
  • Dol-Guldur Wargs can now be upgraded with Wolf-Armor.
  • Gundabad Warriors' recruitment time has been reduced from 35 to 30 seconds.

Other Changes


  • Mordor Mountain Trolls and Mordor Drummer Trolls have been given new HD textures.
  • Rhun Spearmen now take less damage from fire attacks.


Credits for the Siege Workshop's model goes to Mathijs and the former Shadow and Flame mod team, while credits for the new troll textures and Half-Trolls goes to RiderOfRohan and Turin Turumbar respectively.

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.

Cheers,
