Recruit Eowyn, the Shield-Maiden of Rohan. Very skilled she was with both sword and shield, often seeking opportunity to fight for those she loved. She rode to battle at Minas Tirith in disguise, destroying the Witch-King with the aid of Merry's sword from the Barrow-downs, work of Westernesse. Because of this, her abilities focus on defeating heroes, a task she excels at.
Level 10: I am no Man! - Eowyn begins a duel with the target enemy hero. While the targeted enemy hero is nearby, Eowyn gains a massive damage boost, increases movement speed and cannot be knocked back. Effect lasts for 60 seconds.
|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.|
Mechanics in Gondor Edit
Eowyn appears also in the Gondor faction. She can be summoned along with an army of Rohan with Gondor's spellbook power Rohan Answers (10pp). She can make use of her ability to mount/dismount, her Disguise ability, her spear throw ability, and her Shield Maiden ability.
Level 1: Mount/Dismount - Eowyn mounts or dismounts her horse. Requires a Rohan Stable.
Level 1: Disguise - Requires Rohan Stable. Eowyn disguises herself to hide her identity. Eowyn mounts her horse and disguises herself to look like a normal Rohirrim.
Level 1: Smite - Eowyn hurls her spear in a powerful ranged attack against a single target.
Level 5: Shield Maiden - Eowyn is well trained with sword and shield. For a short time she suffers 20% less damage in general and 70% less damage from heroes.
Strategy EditEowyn's role is that of a hero killer. Overall, she should accompany the main army while disguised as a normal Rohirrim, and then use her abilities on enemy heroes she comes across. Her Smite should be used to kill fleeing heroes, but it can also be used on monsters and aerial units. If she is in prolonged combat with a powerful hero, then she should activate her Level 10 ability to give herself a massive attack boost. It would also let her catch up to a fleeing hero, and also resist knock-back from heroes like Boromir and the Witch-King. If this is not available, then Shield Maiden would let her last longer in a fight against other heroes and units. All of these abilities make Eowyn one of the most powerful Hero Killers in the mod, and she should be used in this way. She will not last as long against a large number of other units, so she should stay with the rest of the army. She will also, like other mounted heroes, suffer from a weakness against pikemen and should be careful around them.
