"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 outputs. 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 for Rohan Edit

ROHAN RUSH

One of the most basic strategies of Rohan is attacking early and often. Since they have the power to train peasants as soldiers from any flower mill or farm, it is a simple matter for Rohan to have a standing army right off the bat. Peasants are one of the cheapest soldier types in the game aside from Mordor's Orc Warriors, so they can be amassed quickly and early for raiding and pillaging. Combine the convenience of cheap infantry with the ability to build stud farms, and you'll have equally cheap Cavalry that are among the most powerful in the game. Combine flour mills with stud farms, infantry with cavalry, and you have yourself a balanced army that can be sent out to battle in good numbers. The strategy of buying units for cheap and sending them out constantly can be described best as the famed Rohan Rush.

Rohan has two kinds of infantry and up to four kinds of cavalry. Peasants are swordsmen, and Farmhands are spearmen. Rohirrim are Cavalry that trample archers, while Rohirrim of the Eastfold are actually really good against heavy infantry and buildings. Even better, there are Rohirrim Archers, who carry bows on horseback that are strong at range and have great speed. Their ultimate Cavalry require many upgrades to train, and can only be trained in limited numbers, but they are the most powerful mounted units you can ever see.

Sending this decent variety of infantry and Cavalry is an ample strategy—while your foot soldiers defend your buildings, the Cavalry will be speeding around enemy towns in a rampaging firestorm, knocking down nearly everything in their path. They are excellent for getting to places where you are alerted of an attack, and just after bashing down would-be raiders, they retaliate immediately with a raid of their own. Rohirrim cavalry are even more dangerous when they have upgrades purchased, or when you purchase “Horse Breeding” from the spellbook.

There are a few ways to counteract a Rohan Rush. For one thing, Cavalry are weak against large masses of Spearmen no matter how tough they are, and secondly, Rohan infantry, like any, are incredibly weak against arrows, arrow towers, and siege weapons because of how slow they are.

ROHAN VS ISENGARD

The Rohan Rush is your best bet if you're pitted against Isengard, so train some troops right from the get-go and run down the enemy's buildings. Isengard is a defensive, late-game powerhouse, while Rohan has the highest velocity of action. Compared to Isengard, Rohan can start up a fight incredibly quickly and it takes little time for their forces to build up momentum.

However, If you ever get to a point where Isengard grows powerful after some time, remember that your Cavalry are useful against their siege weapons and crossbowmen. While your siege weapons are of sub-par quality compared to that of Isengard, they can still do the job of bashing down enemy structures after your forces have taken out theirs. You may find that the Uruk-hai will try to become super-powerful by purchasing upgrades, so research your own upgrades to keep up with them. Do whatever you can, but most importantly of all, remember that you have another distinct advantage over Isengard—all of your forces are cheaper compared to theirs. If you can, throw everything you've got at Isengard in the late-game, and immediately keep training more soldiers, armoring them up with upgrades and sending them forth, even while you already have an army at their base.
