The Lorien Pikemen are pikemen from the Lothlorien faction. They are the basic spear units that are strong against monsters, cavalry and single targets (except heroes, especially mass slayer heroes who can kill them quite easy). They can be trained from the Citadel


Lorien sprint Patrol of the Border Guards - increases movement speed by 50% for 30 seconds.

The Lorien Pikemen can be given the following upgrades:

Lorien forged blades Master Blades - Increases the damage of this battalion against:

Lorien banner carrier 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 fallen units.


Lorien Pikemen are used to counter enemy cavalry and monsters. The best strategy with them is to take some battalions into battle and leave some in your base, because the enemy has an annoying habit of send their siege units (trolls, battlewagons) into your base. To prolong their durability on battlefield you can upgrade them with Master Blades and Banner Carriers. With ability Patrol of the Border Guards they can quickly enter or leave combat. You can also boost them (and all troops) with the Spellbook abilities Elven wood and Horns of the Noldor. In the later stages of the game you can use Mirkwood Palace Guards as a substitute to the Lorien Pikemen.
