"And seated a little apart was a tall man with a fair and noble face, dark-haired and grey-eyed, proud and stern of glance. He was cloaked and booted as if for a journey on horseback; and indeed though his garments were rich, and his cloak was lined with fur, they were stained with long travel. He had a collar of silver in which a single white stone was set; his locks were shorn about his shoulders. On a baldric he wore a great horn tipped with silver that now was laid upon his knees."
The Fellowship of the Ring, "The Council of Elrond"

Recruit the Captain-General of Gondor, eldest son of Lord Denethor and brother of Faramir. He was part of the Fellowship of the Ring, tried to steal the Ring from Frodo because of the Ring's corruption of his mind, and then was killed by Lurtz while protecting Merry and Pippin. It is said he was much like Earnur, a King of Old.

Ring Mechanics

"He would have stretched out his hand to this thing, and taking it he would have fallen. He would have kept it for his own, and when he returned you would not have known your son."
Gandalf, The Return of the King, "The Siege of Gondor"

If Boromir takes the Ring, he will use it to prevent Gondor from being destroyed. He will immediately reach level 10, being able to use all of his abilities. He will be able to permanently summon strong units, but the One Ring will kill him after a certain amount of time (10 minutes). When the One Ring takes his life, all allied players will be unable to use their buildings for 30 seconds.

Abilities

The longer Boromir carries the One Ring, the more he will be driven mad and his abilities will decrease steadily until his death. Passive Ability.

Strategy

Boromir should mainly be used as a tank at the head of the army. With Last Stand and Brave Resistance, he should be able to absorb the enemy's attacks easily while the rest of the army does damage to the enemy. He can support them further by using Heir of Gondor to give them bonus armor. Horn of Gondor can be used in many situations to prevent the enemy from fighting or escaping an allied charge, or to allow your army to retreat without interruptions. The Veterans can be just as versatile and can be used in attack or defence. Finally, giving the Ring to Boromir could potentially win the battle for the player (especially in early game) since all units will be upgraded and the powerful Guardians of the White City become available. This will drastically improve the effectiveness of the player's army. Boromir is a very effective Tank as he has a lot of armor which can be further amplified. He can stop a whole enemy offensive by himself, even after his health bar is depleted as he continues to fight after death.
