"There came Gwaihir the Windlord, and Landroval his brother, greatest of all the Eagles of the North."
The Return of the King

Gwaihir was descended from Thorondor, the greatest Eagle who ever lived. It was said that he and his brother Landroval aided Thorondor in rescuing Beren and Luthien from Angband. He can be summoned by Lothlorien, Imladris, Gondor, and Arnor using the Eagle spellbook power (he appears with two other eagles), making him the hero available in most factions. He is used mostly for slaying numerous units and dealing damage to fleeing heroes.

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

Gwaihir is a flying hero, one of the few, so he therefore has the ability to go over walls and catch up with all types of fleeing units. However, this renders him specifically weak to archers, which can take him down in matter of seconds. His timer is rather short, so he should be used for brusque mass slaying, nothing too long term.
