The Elven Minstrel (Sindarin: Pethril Lórien) is a support unit of the Lothlórien faction. They encourage units with their singing. Therefore, their strength lies in distance and numbers, because the more minstrels you have, the better bonuses your units will get. Minstrels are considered a special unit and are not selected by Q.
- 1 Minstrel: allies gain +30% armor and damage.
- 2 Minstrels: allies also gain fear resistance and +10% armor and damage.
- 3 Minstrels: allies also gain knock-back and trample resistance and +10% armor and damage.
|This unit has no upgrades. This means that this unit can not gain any sort of permanent boost from upgrades found in either its palantir or from other units/heroes. If this is not the case, fill in the section following the format of other pages.|
As support units, Minstrels aren't able to attack, but they provide bonuses to your units. You should recruit 3 or more Minstrels to gain maximum bonuses for your troops. Minstrels are good when they're close to your army. The best thing is to keep Minstrels behind your units and take them into battle, leaving some at your base to provide bonuses for your defenders.
