Level 5: Noble Courage - The First under the King's banner were a source of inspiration and courage. Allies in the vicinity of the Palace Guards of Arnor gain experience more rapidly. (Passive ability)
The Palace Guards (Arnor) can be given the following upgrades:
- Other infantry if they are swordsmen
- Monsters and Cavalry if they are pikemen
- Buildings if they are cavalry
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.
