Today's update brings you eight new juicy screenshots in a showcase on two of Gondor's most powerful heroes.

Aragorn has been moved over to Gondor, in a new, kingly capacity. He starts at Level 5 and brings a several new and powerful abilities to the Gondor's player's arsenal. Hands of the King is similar to Athelas, but has a much increased range. As always, the trusty Blademaster grants a good offensive and defensive boost when needed. His Leadership provides a hefty bonus to nearby troops' damage and experience gain, making him a good team player. When the King reaches Rank 6, he gains Anduril, the Flame of the West, whose strikes reduce enemy hero armour with every blow. At Rank 7, he mounts his steed, allowing him to ride into battle with Knights of Gondor and Dol Amroth. At Rank 10, he can use his inspiration command of men's hearts to deliver an Oath to Arms. This potent temporary leadership bonus inspires nearby troops to heroic heights, and increases in power when more Gondorian battalions are in the area.

Boromir retains the Horn of Gondor, now available at Rank 3. At Rank 4 he gains his customary Leadership, and Captain of Gondor remains at Rank 6 to fill out his set of vanilla abilities. Two new abilities have been added - at Rank 7 he dons additional amour, increasing defense and health. At Rank 10, he gain For Gondor!, an ability that greatly boosts attack and speed of nearby Gondorian infantry.

:thumbsupsmiley: Awesome a few questions
Will Rohan get a new hero to replace Aragon?
Are the Gondor units that seem to be their own group are a change to the tower guards or a new unit?
Plus It's very evil of you to tell us of Dol Amroth Knights but not give pics.
As always great job, waiting fo next patch :popcorn:

Great changes! :thumbsupsmiley: Just one question. What is the unit in the bottom right hand corner of the third boromir screenshot?
A citadel guard, or gondor captain?

Rohan's hero list is getting a lot of work, with Aragorn and Legolas both going... elsewhere.

And the other Gondor units will be revealed in time ;).

Well, it'd be kind of weird for them to lose both Gimli and Aragorn, but somehow keep Legolas. Don't worry though, he won't disappear from Rohan completely. Nor will the other two.

Awesome update! It's just a shame that you don't seem to be giving Boromir the awesome banner-waving animation for his For Gondor! ability.

The version I have is buggy, jittery and really not useable. As far as I know, the 'good' version disappeared with cahik.

You guys always do the most amazing work! Soo looking forward to this update.

I try.

Thanks for staying loyal to the mod guys, really means a lot to me :).
