Below I will list the tech trees for the Lone Wolf factions.

These tech trees are what I'm working towards for Lone Wolf Return of Shadow.

I've removed Eriador and Morgul since they've been axed.

If I haven't updated the tech tree publicly in the last month or so the Faction is being reviewed and reworked.
Expect some soonish.

Each post will have a different faction's tech tree and below a link to each of those posts.

They'll be much improved and will have randomising equipment.

Their units are generally lighter armed than comparable units such as Gondor's but they do more damage and are especially
good at dealing with defensive units, siege and structures with at least 3 Axemen units and their strong archers can do a lot of damage.
2 of the Dale elite units have high attack and high health the Beornings and Huscarls these beefy units add a great punch to the faction.

Changes in heroes:
Radsvirr now represents the people of Eastern Rhovanion on the Eastern borders of Dale's boundaries the area of the Carnen.
Vidugavia now takes Radsvirr's role as the West watch leader.
Prince Bard is in charge of the Southern Watch.

Lightbearers will no longer be able to purchase all spells/upgrades instead the player will choose to specialise their role.
All Lightbearers will get the Leadership though.
The Lightbearer's spells will be powered up to balance this.

Rivendell will now have Siege weapons in the form of a Siege Ladder and a Ballista.
The Ballista will fire more slender and smaller bolts than the Isengard Ballista but due to their design they will travel further but will be less destructive.

Notes on Changes:
As you can see there's been some significant changes to Rivendell with the introduction of the new Elite units and upgrades.
When Fully Upgraded the new Elite units are among the most powerful in the game but they don't come cheap.
Rivendell is slow to produce resources and don't get any resource upgrades the only help they get is from the Morning Mist spell.
So it can take a long time for Rivendell to hit it's stride.

Another major change is in the new Dark and Light feature that I've been developing but more on that elsewhere.

(a- Technically 2 leaderships one positive one negative, Pos:+150% attack,Fear immunity and double exp gain for allied units Neg:-60% Amr,Removes Fear resistance and -20% Speed for Enemy units. The Negative effects are the same as Black Breath explained below.

(b - Places a Relic on the ground that freezes units in the area and over time summoned Wights.

(c - The Black Relic slowly corrupts nearby land making it barren weakening enemies and strengthening allies it also makes any nearby resource structures unproductive.
Pos:+10% Speed,+150% damage Neg:-20% speed,-50% armour.

(d - The Nazgul will naturally be stronger at night gaining a speed,vision and damage bonus.
During the daytime they lose it.
Khamul is the most effected of the Nine with minimal sight during the day and more or less powerless, he also gains the most at night time.
This will probably be worked by the scripted Day/Night/Weather script which I'll be improving on.

(e - Screech will be reworked and act differently.
Instead of just causing units to flee when Khamul or WK use it they will set off any nearby Nazgul and they will cause enemies to flee as well.
Because of this the 4 following Nazgul can't activate it manually.

Mordor heroes are split in 2 classes Orcs and general.
Orc heroes are weak and cheap and can only lead other Orcs.
The General heroes which are the Black Herald and the Witch King.
They specialise in weakening the enemy.

Hero Notes and Ideas:
Azashuk a pyromaniac has fire themed skills.
1 possible idea is to train selected Towers to use Hot Oil Cauldrons against close enemies
Idea 2. Playing with Fire - Azashuk catches on fire taking heavy self damage but also inflicting it on nearby enemies with a fire based radiance until he dies.

Garagh may inherit Burolg's abilities.
He is also now the name for the Orc Captain that injure Sam in the Chamber of Mazarbul attack.

Burzolg is the name I've give to another one of the Orc Captain/Chieftains in the Chamber attack.

Bat Swarm will probably be moved to a hero power for Gimbul.

Big changes new heroes (and quite a few of them) new spells and reworked units implementing the Elite units.
Gundabad has been worked into The Deep pretty well.
I'll probably change the name of the faction to The Deeps but that's superficial in code it'll still be Deep.
Snaga deserve no training Only Orc units can get upgraded with Training, Armour and Weapons except Archers who get Fire Arrows.
The Goblins can however level up and gain banners that way Banners are a waste on the regular Goblins anyway.
Not completely decided yet but the Forge/Pit upgrades will be:
Work Pit:
Orc Training
Fire Arrows
Tower Fire Arrows
Troll Training
Strength Training

Orc Armour
Orc Scimitars
