Upgrades Edit

No Upgrades
This hero has no upgrades. This means that this hero can not gain any sort of permanent boost from upgrades found in either its palantir or from other units/heroes. If this is not the case, fill in the section following the policy.

Strategy Edit

Araphant is almost entirely a unit support hero, having no abilities to enhance his own damage or armor. As such, his best place will be surrounded by the units of Arnor. His leadership palantir can be used to boost the damage of whatever type of unit needs it the most at the moment. His Blessing of the Royal Family and Armories of Fornost are ideal for making the most of your troops (and cut the costs of having to buy upgrades). Though Araphant is not an offensive hero, he is still worth having to bolster your units and protect settlements or other important buildings with his level 10 ability.
