Strategy Edit

Palace Guards are the substitutes for Dúnedain Soldiers in the Arnor mid to late-game. They cost 300 resources more than the Soldiers do, but they are a lot better combat-wise, and when they reach level 5, they unlock a useful support ability that helps other units to reach maximum level.
