"It is told that she [Nimrodel] had a house built in the branches of a tree that grew near the falls; for that was the custom of the Elves of Lórien, to dwell in the trees, and maybe it is so still. Therefore they were called the Galadhrim, the Tree-people."
Legolas, The Fellowship of the Ring

Galadhrim are sort of royal units of Lothlórien. They can be recruited from the citadel when Galadhrim Quarters are built. They are elite elven troops armed with swords and bows. It is said that they had weapons of better quality than other elves of Lothlórien, which means that they are stronger than ordinary troops.

Upgrades Edit

No Upgrades
This unit has no upgrades. This means that this unit 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

Galadhrim are strong opponents against other infantry units. Like Haldir, they should be used like this: first switch to bows and fire at enemies with arrows, then when enemies are too close switch to swords and fight melee. Of course there is another strategy - first fight with swords. When at low health retreat back and switch to bows and fire at the enemies with arrows. As all units they can be boosted with spellbook powers like Horns of the Noldor or Elven Wood.
