The Lorien Warriors for the Elves cost a whopping 400 resources! They got the same atk and def (could be worse or better) as most other swordsman classes. I could buy two Gondor Soldier batalions for that. Did the get the short end of the stick or what cause thats sad. They don't even have the Shield wall formation lol.

We all have a choice, so make yours wisely. If its wrong then make the best out of it.

According to our little friend ini.big:

Lorien Warriors

Health: 160
Speed: 65
Normal weapon damage: 38 damage per second
(Damage 80, attack duration 800 msec, preattack delay 700 msec, wait between shots 800 msec)
Upgraded weapon damage: 57 damage per second
(Damage 120 (2x damage vs other infantry))
Normal Armor: 30% global damage reduction, 2x damage from heroes, 1.5x damage from cavalry, 0.5x damage from pikemen
Upgraded Armor: 30% global damage reduction, 50% less damage (more armor) from all types, 0.1x damage from magic, 0.2x damage from flame



Soldiers of Gondor

Health: 200
Speed: 55
Normal weapon damage: 16 damage per second
(Damage 40, attack duration 1000, preattack delay 500, wait between shots 1000)
Upgraded weapon damage: 36 damage per second
(Damage 90 (plus 2x vs other infantry))
Normal Armor: Low flanking penalty (33%), 2x damage from heroes, 1.5x damage from cavalry, 0.5x damage from pikemen
Upgraded Armor: 20% global damage increase (wtf????), 50% less damage (more armor) from all types, 0.1x damage from magic, 0.2x damage from flame


----------------------------------------------
Conclusion:
A single elven warrior can easily kill two gondor soldiers. While the soldiers are useful for spamming and harassing, the elven warriors are useful as a main force, dealing more than double damage and having better armor (regardless of the lower HP).

lorien warriors are definitely worth the extra 100 resources. Mithlond sentries are not very versatile pikemen so I suggest only using them against cavalry

Join me and many others on RotWK patch 2.02 and enjoy the game in its most balanced form ever.

0.0 wow I didn't know there would be that big a difference. But I still think they come with to big a price tag.
