"They say that a great sorceress lives in these woods. An Elf witch of terrible power. All who look upon her fall under her spell... and are never seen again. "

Galadriel is the Lady of Light, Queen of Lothlórien, and the most powerful hero unit of Lothlórien. In version 4.5 Galadriel received few new abilities. This was inspired by her portrayal in "The Hobbit" movies. Against enemy units, Galadriel attacks from a distance with a powerful flash of brilliant light, damaging multiple units at the same time in a small radius. Against buildings, she creates a brief storm that gradually crumbles away the stone and wood. The storm quickly destroys the strongest of buildings hence Galadriel is often used as a siege hero.


Gaze of galadriel Level 1: Light of the Golden Wood - After a brief duration, a blazing light breaks through the heavens near Galadriel or any hero with Gifts of Lorien on the map, driving enemies in the area to flee in fear.

Galadriels gifts Level 3: Gifts of Lorien - Galadriel hands gifts from Lothlorien to a hero. The gift can increase the stat of the heroes and/or grants it upgraded abilities.

  • Thranduil: Gains his silver battle armor, which gives him +15% armor. He will also now summon two rows of Palace Guards instead of one with his Shield Wall ability.
  • Legolas: Is gifted a Galadhrim bow which enhances his 'Hawk Strike' and 'Arrow Wind' abilities.
  • Tauriel: Can permanently wield her daggers and is constantly protected by guards. Her first ability transforms into a weapon toggle (she still loses 15% armor when toggling to bow). This can only be cast on Tauriel in the Mirkwood 6 player map she can be permanently recruited on.
  • Haldir: His Shining Arrow ability becomes Arrow of the White Lady, which deals increased damage and stuns enemies in a larger radius with fear.
  • Celeborn: Is gifted royal armor that increases his armor and damage by +10%.
  • Rúmil & Orophin: Are gifted mighty elven armor that highly enhances their defense but lowers their speed. When the ability is cast on either the brothers both will get the armor.

Radiant aid Level 5: Radiant Aid - Can only target a hero with Gifts of Lorien but has an unlimited range. The target hero is immediately fully healed and all his abilities are ready to be used again.

Banishment of white lady Level 7: White Lady's Banishment - Throws all nearby enemy units to the ground, deals heavy damage and robs them of all leadership effects for a medium duration. Additionally, if a hero with Gifts of Lorien is nearby, enemy heroes are blown away and deal no damage for a medium duration.

Galadriel nenya Level 10: Nenya's Cleansing - All allied units and buildings on the map are continuously healed for a long duration. Units in the vicinity of heroes with Gifts of Lorien additionally become fearless and can't be knocked to the ground. Buildings in the vicinity of heroes with Gifts are immune to fire.


No Upgrades
This hero has no upgrades. This means that this hero 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.

Ring Mechanics

Galadriel is the Ring Hero for Lothlórien. Once the Ring is given to her, she can decide to reject it or to accept it. Different abilities and effects occur depending on her choice.

Galadriel accepts the Ring's power

"You will give me the Ring freely! In place of the Dark Lord you will set up a Queen. And I shall not be dark, but beautiful and terrible as the Morning and the Night! Fair as the Sea and the Sun and the Snow upon the Mountain! Dreadful as the Storm and the Lightning! Stronger than the foundations of the earth. All shall love me and despair!"

If Galadriel acquires the One Ring and accepts it, she becomes the Queen of Storms, gaining many powerful new abilities. Mallorn Trees are able to research a useful defensive specialization. However, allies are debuffed while inside the fortress and while near Galadriel. She can also achieve this form through the use of the spellbook power Lothlórien/Twilight_Queen; if she is already the Twilight Queen, a destructive tornado will appear instead.


Have a queen Level 1: In Place of a Dark Lord You Would Have a Queen - As Queen of Twilight, Galadriel unleashes tremendous power. Her magical attacks damage all enemies around her. Her attacks against buildings also hit other buildings in the vicinity. (Passive ability)

Terribly beautiful Level 3: Not Dark but Beautiful and Terrible as the Dawn - All enemy units near target location cower in fear. Enemy units, heroes and buildings deal no damage for a medium duration.

Treacherous seas Level 5: Treacherous as the Sea - Calls down a magical flood of rain in target area.

Earth foundations Level 7: Stronger than the Foundations of the Earth - Cracks open the earth in target area and deals heavy damage to enemy buildings.

Love me baby Level 10: All Shall Love Me and Despair - Enemy units in target area briefly fight for Galadriel and have 25% less armor for the duration.

Galadriel rejects the Ring's power

"I passed the test, I will diminish, and go into the West, and remain Galadriel."

If Galadriel rejects the One Ring, she will become blessed by the Valar. All of her abilities now gain an extra effect: When used, they spawn a blessing light for one minute that increases the damage, range and speed of all allies (including Galadriel herself) by +20% in a wide radius. She will still drop the Ring upon death. This form can also be achieved through the use of the spellbook power Lothlórien/Blessed_Galadriel; if she is already blessed and this power is used, Vingilot will appear granting the same bonuses.


"I am not alone!"

"I know what it is you saw, for it is also in my mind."

"Three were given to the Elves, immortal, wisest, and fairest of all beings."

"Ae boe i le eliathon, im tulithon."

"Gwenwin in únodui."

"Gandalf the Grey did not pass the borders of this land."

"Do not let the great emptiness of Khazad-dûm fill your heart!"

"Something moves in the shadows, unseen, hidden from our sight."
