These are some very interesting concepts, it'll just be a matter of properly balancing them so that it feels rewarding rather than punishing.

Is it possible to dismount heroes anywhere? Will legolas and other archers have abilities to generate some amount of arrows without needing to go to an archery range? For example, Legolas could have an ability where he crafts arrows that freezes him in place for some time and then replenishes his quiver.

Looking forward to more.

Thank you very much for the encouragement!

It is possible to dismount heroes anywhere. Moreover, Gandalf the White can mount his horse anywhere because he has Shadowfax. Tolkien wrote that it is quite an unusual horse so we decided to highlight it using this way.

Legolas will not be able to create arrows by himself. He pulls out his daggers automatically when the quiver is empty. We will add a similar system to archers in the future. Perhaps we should modificate the system for Dunedain in order to provide them the ability to create arrows by themselves because of their life style and natural skills. There is this possibility that we will add the system for archers in the next version but it's not for sure. We are doing the modification in order to create a canonically accurate and realistic gameplay.

Your ideas are brilliant, thank you so much! We will consider them really carefully. I especially like the idea about crafting arrows.

Thank you again!
