Recruit Dunedain Soldiers to protect the realm of Arnor with their swords, shields and formations.
The Soldiers of Arnor have access to the following upgrades:
Banner Carrier - This upgrade can only be given to a level 1 battalion and will promote it to level 2. At level 2 the battalion can regenerate units when out of combat. Cost: 200
Heavy Armor - Increases the armor, hit points and damage resistance of the unit to ranged damage. Changes the unit's armor set to EdainInfantryHeavyArmor. Cost: 300
Forged Blades - Increases the damage of this battalion and provides a damage bonus against other infantry (swordsmen, pikemen, archers, etc...). Cost: 300
Sword of the Westerness - Makes the unit invulnerable to FLAME, MAGIC, FROST, POISON and FORCE damagetypes and increase their damage by 50% against ringwraiths, Karsh and Wights.
The Dunedain Soldiers are Arnor's basic foot soldiers. They function best as spam troops for early game and creeping early. However, due to Arnor's better late-game swordsmen, the Palace Guards of Arnor, they shouldn't be built once the Arnor player has the resources to crank out Palace Guards.
