"Where now are the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing? Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing? Where is the harp on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing? Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing? They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.Who shall gather the smoke of the deadwood burning, Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?"
Theoden, King of Rohan


Rohan is one of the most aggressive good factions, but has a wooden masonry, which may be provided with extensions. 7 Plots are available within the fortress. On camp maps, Rohan has a broken wooden palisade with multiple entrances. Rohan is a cavalry and peasant faction, with great emphasis on the cavalry. This faction has the highest number of different cavalry units, but receives the least access to infantry units. On outposts captains of Rohan can be recruited, the Spellbook provides a large number of allied troops aside.

Rohan is a new faction separated from Gondor and the old Men of the West faction. Rohan is the the land of the Horse-Lords. It is a strong Cavalry faction with peasant spam in the early game.

Rohan Strategic Points Edit

Castles Edit

Rohan Castles are walled fortifications that prevent the enemy from entering the main fortress. The walls are able to be walked on and provide a platform for defending Archers to rain down death upon attacking forces.The castle is made up of the central tower, seven build plots, and twelve wall plots. The wall plots can construct various defenses to guard the castle. These are Wall banners, Battle Towers and Postern Gates.

Camps Edit

The Rohan Camp is not as defensible as the castle. It only has four non-walkable wall barriers. The central tower is surrounded by six build plots and seven defensive plots guard the openings between the walls. A sentry tower can be built at each defensive plot.

Outposts Edit

Rohan can build either the Exile Camp or the regular outpost.

Settlements Edit

The settlement is a single building that can be built. Rohan has three options for their settlements. They can construct the Rohan Farm, Assembly Point and the Stud Farm.

Strategy Edit

Typical of most heroic factions, Rohan starts most games with walls around their fortress or camp, and has a good number of options for defending their citadel. As such, Rohan's strategy excels in defense and preservation of their territory. To aid with defending territory, Rohan's settlements have the option of constructing farms that can train two types of infantry. Rohan peasants and farmhands are quite cheap and train fairly quickly, but they're rather strong for their cost, especially when they are fighting nearby their farms. Rohan's true strength is in their cavalry. By constructing stud farms, Rohan has access to four or more different units of horsemen that start out reasonably priced, but become cheaper and cheaper with the stud farm bonus. Plus, Rohan's horsemen can receive several upgrades to further improve their fighting ability, and half of their hero units can mount a horse, allowing them to ride along. Rohan excels in everything that cavalry are meant for; harassing enemy forces by trampling them from the flank, tearing down enemy buildings out in the open, and quickly responding to the call of conflict across the map. Their three most common cavalry types can be trained cheaply and quickly just like their defensive peasant infantry.

Of course, being a cavalry-oriented faction has its merits and weaknesses. While Rohan has an extreme advantage in the areas of speed and strength, their other tactics are lacking. The peasantry infantry can be mass-produced for a ready defense or for swarming and harassing the enemy, but aside from their upgrades they receive from their spellbook power, they pale in comparison to other infantry because they don't have any noteworthy strengths aside from being readily available. Rohan also lacks effective siege weaponry, having access only to a battering ram and a catapult; both of them are rather slow, have slightly shorter range, and aren't quite as effective for attacking fortifications. Rohan's foot archers are also sub-par compared to their mounted archers from the stables. Considering the fact that Rohan relies so much on cavalry for attacking, a faction that focuses on heavy infantry such as Gondor and Isengard have a sharp edge over them when they mass-produce spear-wielding soldiers.
