The Rivendell Swordsmen are the basic infantry unit of Imladris. Because of their strong stats compared to other starting units, the player begins each game with only one battalion instead of two. Their abilities allow them to be used in many different situations, making the Rivendell Swordsmen very strategically adaptable.

Abilities Edit

Stand fast Stand Fast!: For 30 seconds, the Swordsmen gain +25% armor and slow enemy cavalry 30% faster when they are trampled. Cannot be used simultaneously with Advance!.

Advance Advance!: Requires Basic Military Studies (from the Library). The Swordsmen gain +25% damage and +35% movement speed for 30 seconds. Cannot be used simultaneously with Stand Fast!.

Upgrades Edit

The Rivendell Swordsmen can be given the following upgrades:

Imladris banner carrier Banner Carrier - This upgrade can only be given to a level 1 battalion and will promote it to level 2. At level 2 the battalion can regenerate fallen units.

Magic blades Magic Blades - Increases the damage of this battalion against:

Imladris heavy armor Heavy Armor - Increases the armor, hit points and damage resistance of the unit

Eregion Blades Upgrade Eregion Blades - After the Forged Blades (Magic Blades) upgrade has been purchased by the battalion, this additional upgrade becomes available once the Basic Blacksmithing Studies has been researched from the Library. The Eregion Blades are lighter and more efficient, granting the battalion a higher attack speed.
