The Mirkwood plan is getting more exciting and interesting.

I like the new powers for Legolas and Feren and also the addition of Galion. If Grimbeorn would be a permanent hero, they will have the most badass heroes of the mod.

You've definatly split up from the ideas presented in the movies, so far, I see no similarities in the structures at all. This is a nice thing to do an requires a lot of thinking on your own.

 

I really like that. If one would've gone with a little more movie oriented structures I would've had a lot of ideas for that. One core idea would've been to alter mirkwoods base defense by including a new mechanic. Would've been really hard to do, maybe not even possible but I thought about an upgrade for all mirkwood structures which  would connect the structure with a wooden root if the distance between them wasn't too big.

The roots would be host to 2-3 archers. As a reference one could just look at the mirkwood halls where some roots are used as paths to connect different areas or the river escape scenes where the archers use existing branches to chase behind the dwarfs/kill orcs on the move. The "buff" towards the mirkwood base is neglegable since the archer range/damage does not change the tides in a seege scenario. If one wanted to make this a buff to the mirkwood base defense the archers would just get a boost in their numbers. Still wouldn't change anything against siege weapons but just a minor buff against normal units.

 

Mirkwood fortress could be based on a rock-ish texture, front shows the gate we've seen in the movies, left side is basically solid rock, so is the back (round shape) and the right side could be similar to the wall where the dwarfes are stopped during their escape. Upgrades will be thranduils throne which appears in the middle of the fortress, wooden roots hosting a few archers (like the lothlorien upgrade), another upgrade adds a smaller watchtower to the outside wall/rock and the last upgrade adds two similar watchtowers connected by  a stone arch on top of the rock on the left. Additional Upgrades like banners and minor things are to be thought off...

 

Did a small scetch for it, if interested I could upload. But I take it you've already made a pretty clear layout for the fraction which clearly differs from my ideas. I really look forward to all the stuff you do with this race.

Greetings creators and designers of this mod
 
This is the factions that i wait too much, elves of mirkwood (sindar/silvans) my favourite. For this only i have questions and ideas:
 
1) See elves mounted in deers like Thranduil
2) See Radagast mounted a car style Santa Claus (like the movie xD) haha, i know, strange but, looks funny
3) See Thranduil be very stronger 
 
Another thing i want to say is... why you said this "have very low armor and will struggle early game", many silvan elves used to live in Lothlorien than Mirkwood; I know, many Mirkwood elves died in the battle of the last alliance for being badly armed, this was because of Oropher for going reluctantly to the battle and doing what he wanted without thinking, i do not think Thranduil would have committed the same error, although Galadriel lived in Lothlorien and she was an elven Noldor, it does not make it appear that the greatest number of Sindar elves living in the Mirkwood were weak to comparison. Or I do not know why the reason for making them weaker. In conclusion i see elves of mirwood more dangerous (as you said) and more powerfull than Lothlorien (Galadriel and Celeborn do not count xD) because more Silvan elves were of Lothlorien and Sindar of Mirkwood.
 
By now is all that i remember... that's just ideas and tips, i hope you do not take this wrong.
 
Love this mod.

@Narthil

Interestingly, the fortress I ended up making has several similarities to what you suggest. Great minds...

 

@Thranduil_King

There won't be Elk-riders... I just don't like the idea, and it has no basis in Tolkien. Two strikes, they're out. Radagast will absolutely not ride a bunny-sled, either. Thranduil will be a very powerful hero, of course.

 

As to them having low armor - the idea is that their basic units are Silvan elves dressed in cloth and leather. It's also a gameplay element. Each faction needs its own strengths and weaknesses. Mirkwood's basic units will be 'glass cannons', high damage, low armor. Thranduil has a power that can give them heavy armor though.


No fuel left for the pilgrims

HI! :)

I saw that there was no heavy armor in Mirkwood at the forge.
The beginner Greenwood Warrior could have a similar fabric cloth.
She/He would just look like she/he would wear brown or green cloaks and clothes.

I have an idea for the exterior look of the treasury (or maybe just a map prop): A circular colonnade topped by a tree stump, with its roots coming down the WETA's Mirkwood styled pillars.

For Radagast hero, I think it's better if his mount (level 1) is eagle not horse. It may be more powerful because the cost is high (3000).

I think having a flying beast toggle is worth the cost of the Witch King

Since Greenwood's plan is not yet adapted to the new resource structure system, here's an idea (if that's even possible).
Mirkwood has only 3 unit upgrades - Greenwood banners, Silvan Steel and Silvan Fletching - when most factions have 4 (or even 5, in Erebor's case). So how about making Thranduil's Treausry, on top of decreasing the cost of updates, decrease the reload time of Thranduil's "Love of Silver and Jewels"?

15 - Men of the Carrock - Unlocks Grimbeorn in the Fortress.

Grimbeorn's New Powers:

Toll-Keepers - target building is protected by a trio of Beorning Berserkers for a small time but has slightly reduced production.

 

Woodsmen of the Anduin - summons a Beorning Cabin in the target area which will earn resources, boost resource production of nearby buildings and can summon hordes of woodsmen to attack structures.

About Palace Guard, Solemn Duty power is similar to Foutain Guard and Royal Guard of Rohan. I think it will be more interesting if you chance a little bit. Maybe they will be buffed when fighting at Mirkwood base, near the castle...instead of increasing structure's amour. Ty! :D

The spells being named after the Elvenking is very, very deliberate and not up for change. Mirkwood is a faction that's very focused on its central hero.

I assumed that it was made in some purpose, but, for me it felt a bit redundant, so, i wanted to give other names, conserving the same meaning.
