Legolas is the elven prince of Mirkwood, the son of Thranduil. He can be recruited from the Mirkwood Outpost. He is able to fight using his bow as well as knives. Some of his abilities are centered on dealing direct damage, while some are unit support and scouting abilities.
Level 5: Elven Eye - Legolas has the keen sight of the elves, and he can spy enemies over huge distances. Legolas will temporarily gain + 50% sight range and + 25% weapon range and armor. The ability will also reveal hidden enemies. (Cannot be used while using Knife Fighter)
Legolas can receive only one upgrade:
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. Legolas is gifted a Galadhrim bow which enhances his 'Hawk Strike' and 'Arrow Wind' abilities.
Legolas is categorized as mass slayer because of his ranged attack and mass slaying abilities. He is very useful against normal units at range, and his ability Hawk Strike is very effective against groups of infantry. His ability Train Archers is centered around unit-support as he gives additional experience to archer units. To completely destroy incoming enemy units you can use his ability Arrow Wind, which is also effective against enemy heroes if they are alone.
