"Glorfindel was tall and straight; his hair was of shining gold, his face fair and young and fearless and full of joy; his eyes were bright and keen, and his voice like music; on his brow sat wisdom, and in his hand was strength."
The Fellowship of the Ring

Recruit the Elf Lord clad in silver armor to fight for Arnor or Imladris. Once Glorfindel has been recruited in the Arnor faction, you will have access to Arnor's heroic cavalry, the Wind Riders. In the Imladris faction, these are available without having to recruit Glorfindel (but with their own requirements). He is a powerful tank capable of nullifying enemy damage while increasing his own capabilities.

Abilities Edit

Level 1: Mount/Dismount - Left click to switch between mounted and on foot.

Level 3: Wind Rider (mounted only) - Glorfindel's courage and strength inspire his mount to a great effort, giving Glorfindel +40% speed and +50% armor for a short time. He is unable to trample enemy units for the duration of the ability.

Glorfindel purity bladeLevel 3: Blade of Purity (on foot only) - Glorfindel calls upon his inner strength and purity, causing a brilliant light to emanate from him which gives him a small area of effect attack. It also causes him to receive only half damage from enemy abilities. Only available on foot. Not available during Collect Starlight.

Glorfindel collect starlight abilityLevel 5: Collect Starlight - Glorfindel, as a High Elf Lord, is able to enter the Shadow World and surround himself with pure light. For 60 seconds Glorfindel is filled with pure light which slowly restores his hit points and partially repulses melee damage dealt by enemies. The collected starlight can be released. If the Starlight is not released within 60 seconds it will have no effect. Not available during Blade of Purity.

Glorfindel brilliant illumination abilityLevel 7: Brilliant Illumination - Glorfindel is the only Elf who has seen the Halls of Mandos and returned to Middle-earth, bringing the blessing of the Valar with him. Every 30 seconds he will be completely protected from an enemy attack or ability. (Passive ability)

Glorfindel light of hope abilityLevel 10: Light of Hope - Glorfindel becomes illuminated in his wrath, blazing brilliantly and terrifying all nearby enemies who dare raise arms against him. For 60 seconds enemy units near Glorfindel become continuously paralyzed.
