Yes, but once Elrond is at lvl 8, a lvl 10 Glorfindel would die to him in under 5 seconds. Also, Elrond's not exactly a physical lightweight and can rip through a decent amount of enemies. Leveling him so long as he has an army by him isn't a problem. At level 10, Glorfindel is good for ripping through enemies (he does the same thing at level 5), but would be torn apart in a 1v1 fight to the death (no running away on the horse) against Elrond.
Elrond is WAAAAAY more powerful than Glorfindel once he gets his lvl 8 power, as hard as it is to level him. He seriously 1-hit kills any hero in the game so long as all the horses hit the hero, whereas it takes Glorfindel's attack a MUCH longer time to do the attack. Elrond should have his price moved up to 4k. Glorf is the strongest melee hero in the game. He can rip through basicly anything, he has no need of abilities. Nuff said. And there is the factor of having to level Elrond up...
What about with an 11 foot poll ?
Besides, if I want a cheepo Elrond in early-game, I can always mod him to be worth 1 and respawn worth 1. That's what I have in my current TEA version. I also did that to all the other heroes . It's EPIC !!!!!!!!!!! In addition, I gave Galadriel MEGA OP AoE. She can attack half way across the map or something like that. Her attack also got a boost in my EPIC (phail) version of TEA and sits at around 5k with a health of roughly 200k. Not touching this with a ten foot pole.
Everything traces its roots back to Cel, so he takes 100% of the credit. Thanks, Cel (even though I know you're not reading this)!
And yes, Jeth, you're in Lauri's league of smilies...
Also, sorry for being such a ******, adummy.
