"Ahead nearer the walls Elfhelm's men were among the siege-engines, hewing, slaying, driving their foes into the fire-pits. Well nigh all the northern half of the Pelennor was overrun, and their camps were blazing, orcs were flying towards the River like herds before the hunters; and the Rohirrim went hither and thither at their will."
The Return of the King

Elfhelm was a nobleman of Rohan in Theoden's court with the title of Marshal. He commanded the éored in which Merry and Dernhelm (Eowyn) rode to Minas Tirith. He can be recruited at the King's Camp where he can then be upgraded with one of various battalions. He is very weak on his own, but once he has been upgraded, he can become very versatile. He is very similar to Grimbold, Erkenbrand and the Rohan Captain.

Once an upgrade above is chosen a new series of upgrade is unlocked which can be all purchased (Horse Shield is only available if Knights of Meduseld was chosen). The Elfhelm can be given the following upgrades:

Rohan forged blades Forged Blades - Increases the damage of this battalion against:

Horse shields upgrade Horse Shield - Increases armor of the battalion against Pikemen by 25% and armor against Swordsmen by 50%.

Strategy Edit

The strategy you use with him depends on the situation, for example, what faction you are up against, this is due to his special use of 3 different Upgrades which give him 3 different kinds of elite units. The Cavalry could be used for spammy factions or factions with many archers, the Swordsmen to counter enemy Pikemen or the Pikemen for Cavalry based Factions like Rohan.. Also once he dies and you revive him he is able to re-choose the battalion he will lead. Elfhelm also makes nearby battalions fearless and can also replenish one unit of them with his active power.
