The Phalanx of Ered Luin are Pikemen that serve Ered Luin. They are steadfast units which are used to using their skills to decimate the enemy rather than relying on their heavy armor. Even though they can be equipped with heavy armor the player should rely on strategy rather than using them to take brute damage.

Abilities

Steadfastness.png Steadfastness - Whenever cavalry or monsters crash into the Phalanx, they are slowed by 50% for 30 seconds. (Passive ability)

Flank Defence - Pikemen are used to defending from all sides when battling against monsters and cavalry. As a result, they cannot be flanked. They take no extra damage from being flanked and deal full revenge damage regardless of the direction they get trampled from.

Upgrades

The Ered Luin Phalanx have access to the following upgrades:
Ered Luin Banner Carrier.png 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 units when out of combat. Cost: 200

Strategy

The Phalanx is Ered Luin's main pikemen force and should be used to kill monsters and cavalry. One huge advantage they have is that they hamper monsters and cavalry's speed by half for 30 seconds, so that may help to track them down if they manage to survive the first assault.
