"Ahead nearer the walls Elfhelm's men were among the siege-engines, hewing, slaying, driving their foes into the fire-pits. Well nigh all the northern half of the Pelennor was overrun, and their camps were blazing, orcs were flying towards the River like herds before the hunters; and the Rohirrim went hither and thither at their will."
The Return of the King

Elfhelm was a nobleman of Rohan in Theoden's court with the title of Marshal. He commanded the éored in which Merry and Dernhelm (Eowyn) rode to Minas Tirith. He can be recruited at the King's Camp where he can then be upgraded with one of various battalions. He is very weak on his own, but once he has been upgraded, he can become very versatile. He is very similar to Grimbold, Erkenbrand and the Rohan Captain. The battalion will not disband if the upgraded Marshal is killed, unlike the Thrall Master, but you will be unable to use the ability until they regenerate.

Upgrades

Elfhelm can be given one of the following upgrades:
Captain soldiers Soldiers of Meduseld - Call a battalion of Soldiers of Meduseld to serve as elite Swordsmen. Cost: 500
Captain wardens Wardens of Meduseld - Call a battalion of Wardens of Medused to serve as elite Pikemen. Cost: 600
Captain cavalry Knights of Meduseld - Call a battalion of Knights of Meduseld to serve as elite Cavalry. Cost: 800

Strategy

The strategy you use with him depends on the situation, what faction you are up against, etc. This is due to his special use of 3 different upgrades which give him 3 different kinds of elite units. The Knights could be used for spammy factions or factions with many archers, the Soldiers to counter enemy pikemen, or the Wardens for cavalry- based factions like Rohan. Also, once he dies and you revive him he is able to re-choose the battalion he will lead. Elfhelm also makes nearby battalions fearless and can also replenish one unit from them with his active power.
