I thought Dunlendings need something more original, more fiting than their "axe throwers".

 

I don't know if you'll like it, but since they were shepherds, hunters and living in the woods and open plains, javelins, made of simple wood and an iron tip, would be more efficient against armour. Those weapons would be an efficient way to repel any wolf or warg getting too close of their huts or livestock.

I have a proposal for a good early game hero to help out the wildmen:

 

Wulf, Warchief of Dunland.

 

Cost: 1100

Attack Type: Melee

Animations: Dunlanding Warrior's

 

Abilities: 

 

- Can stealth near trees.

 

- Rank 1: Torch Throw:

Wulf throws a flaming torch at the target point, causing a medium fire to break out for 30?? seconds. The fires lifespan and area of effect is increased when fueled by timber a.k.a ents & trees.

 

- Rank 3: Warchief:

Grants the generic leadership boost to nearby Dunland units.

 

- Rank 6: Raid: Wulf and nearby dunlanding warriors and spearmen gain resources from slaying enemies, lasts 60?? seconds. (temporary Outlaw-ish ability, not in anyway a leadership though)

 

- Rank 8: (Optional) To War, For Saruman!: Temporarily decreases the build speeds of Dunland units. (Call of the Horde)

 

References: http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Wulf_I & http://lotr.wikia.co...wers_character)

 

Inspiration:

ttt0105.jpg

 

- Furthermore, I'd suggest making Ugluks AOE heal only effect Uruk units because right now its a little OP.

 

- And I'd recommend adding into the descriptions of resource buildings such as Farms, Slaughter Houses, Furnaces, Tunnels, etc... by how much they increase the command point limit by, because currently they do but, are the only buildings that don't say by how much

I’ve got yet another hero suggestion with some heavy ties to the lore, film and the WotR PC game.

 

Grishnákh

 

Reason for implementation: Currently almost every one of Gondors summon’s feature heroes, some of which are very insignificant (Forlong). And so with isengard only having one unit summoning spell “Scum from Lugbúrz”, which summons three hordes of Mordor Orcs with the passive “Pillage” ability, I’d recommend adding the following hero: Grishnákh, in the “Scum from Lugbúrz” summon to one; boost its effectiveness, cool factor, and add to the immersive War of the Ring era theme and two; to be the perfect evil version spell of Gondor’s Denethor summon.

 

Duration on the field: same as the other orcs.

 

Stats can be based off of: the vanilla ROTWK Azog.

 

Attack Type: Melee

 

Abilities:

 

- Pillage (Passive): The exact same ability as the orcs he is summoned with, to further enforce the theme of the summon; “Fast cash grab and good building harassment”.

 

- Explosive Trap: Has Grishnákh hide an explosive trap on the battlefield. The player can activate it at will, yet it will automatically explode should too much time elapse without player action (20 seconds before detonation). The trap is also invisible to the enemy. [Cooldown = 15 seconds]

 

- Torch Throw: Allows Grishnákh to throw a torch at a selected enemy building, setting it aflame instantly, which causes the structure to loose a decent amount of hitpoints over a short amount of time and be out of order for the duration. (effects can be cancelled if a builder throws water over the torched building). [Cooldown = 8 seconds] [Duration = 30 seconds]

 

- Speed of the Wolf: Gives Grishnákh a speed boost in both movement and attack rate by +60%, for a short amount of time, while also making his attacks deal two times their normal damage against heroes. (30??-60?? Seconds). [Cooldown = 18 Seconds]

 

 

HERO COMMENT:

Grishnákh is quite the hero, with abilities focusing solely on pillaging and offense. He can best be used against structures, seeing that he has the ability to set them ablaze with the “Torch Throw” ability. Explosive Trap has to be timed carefully but is very useful in ambushes. And “Speed of the Wolf” can give Grishnákh more attack power by boosting his attack rate and can help him bring in more resources with his “Pillage” ability, when attack enemy structures.

I like the idea of adding Wulf (or a similar character), but those power suggestions need a little more oomph. I've seen several Wulfs in other mods and they're all kind of the same thing. A savage ultra-Wildman that's really more of an orc-type character than a man. That's not really what Dunland was, though. They were very similar to the Rohirrim, and have actual reasons for hating them. Peter Jackson portrayed them in a very flat way (by necessity) that I think we can rise above a little bit.

 

My take:

Wulfgar, Dunlending Chieftain - 1200

Carries axe and spiked Dunlending shield

Once a noble warrior-chief, Wulfgar refused Saruman's demands of sworn allegiance, until the White Wizard demonstrated his absolute power by crushing the Rohirrim at the Fords of Isen.

Rank 1: Shield Bash

An area-of-effect attack that slams enemies backwards and can be used to briefly pin enemy heroes.

Rank 3: King of the Hills

Nearby Wildmen gain a stack bonus similar to Mordor Orcs.

Rank 7: Black Horn

Causes enemy units to flee, and summons a battalion of Household Guards.

 

Wulfgar is a different character than the 'Wulf' we see in The Two Towers. He's an actual chief, similar to a King of Rohan (but with much less land and power), who bravely refused to answer to Saruman's attempts to persuade him to send his best warriors, which resulted in Saruman only obtaining poor peasants and rabble he mooched off of lesser chiefs, until he showed his might at the Fords of Isen, after which Wulfgar could either pledge allegiance and get a piece of Rohan after its destruction, or be next on Saruman's list of enemies.

 

Note that all of this is just ideas and speculation and will not be in the next release.

I have a proposal for a good early game hero to help out the wildmen:

 

Wulf, Warchief of Dunland.

 

Cost: 1100

Attack Type: Melee

Animations: Dunlanding Warrior's

 

Abilities: 

 

- Can stealth near trees.

 

- Rank 1: Torch Throw:

Wulf throws a flaming torch at the target point, causing a medium fire to break out for 30?? seconds. The fires lifespan and area of effect is increased when fueled by timber a.k.a ents & trees.

 

- Rank 3: Warchief:

Grants the generic leadership boost to nearby Dunland units.

 

- Rank 6: Raid: Wulf and nearby dunlanding warriors and spearmen gain resources from slaying enemies, lasts 60?? seconds. (temporary Outlaw-ish ability, not in anyway a leadership though)

 

- Rank 8: (Optional) To War, For Saruman!: Temporarily decreases the build speeds of Dunland units. (Call of the Horde)

 

References: http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Wulf_I & http://lotr.wikia.co...wers_character)

 

Inspiration:

- Furthermore, I'd suggest making Ugluks AOE heal only effect Uruk units because right now its a little OP.

 

- And I'd recommend adding into the descriptions of resource buildings such as Farms, Slaughter Houses, Furnaces, Tunnels, etc... by how much they increase the command point limit by, because currently they do but, are the only buildings that don't say by how much

 

I really like the idea of having a Wildman hero, so I'm all for this. Kind of replaces angmars Hillman hero.

We plan to add Wulfgar, but it won't be that concept. You'll find mine a little further down the page - that's what will happen.

Ahh okay nice, I'm just glad one is being added. I also really like the addition of Ugluk, feels like he is a no brainer and im surprised he wasn't in vanilla tbh.

I saw on the mod page some people say Isengard a bit lack of spice compared to the other factions. I have some ideas and wanted to put them in a proper place.

Here it goes :

Unit suggestion: Isengard orc band
Description: Isengard send out some orcs to pillage the farms of Rohan with Dunlandings which bear the white hand of Saruman.
Unit role: Early game unit with pillage ability and we saw them in Two Towers movie pillaging the farms of Rohan with Dunlandings.

Isengard Warg riders when you upgrade them with Heavy Armor have the Vanilla golden armor look btw. Maybe new Heavy Armor model?

Building suggestion: Caves of Isengard.
Building Description: In the caves of Isengard Saruman forged his weapons of war, breed orcs and uruks to fight and burned the old world in the fires of Industry.
Building Role: Buff to some elements in the faction.
Breeding grounds: Decreases the cost of orcs and uruks
Weapons of War: Decreases the cost of Siege machines and unit upgrades.
Burning of old world: Buff to economical structures.

And limited to only 1 with high building cost and upgrades which balances the Isengard being too OP.

The Wildmen of Dunland fill this role already, I don't see a need for another unit too similar. (:

Sounds like the Steelworks from Edain. However, I haven't really seen a need for this while playing.

ahdOver,

Well orc band can have worse stats and cant be upgraded like wildman. So this can put some difference between them.

And for the caves. Actually it is quite different from Edain steelworks. Because their building only buff their arms and armor but my suggestion is more economical oriented it just decreases costs.

I don't see a real need for these things. It feels like adding things for the sake of adding them. Ain't nobody got time for that.
