The Rivendell Swordsmen (Sindarin: Megyr Imladris) are the basic infantry unit of Imladris. As of the 4.5.5 update, they are no longer the starting unit for Imladris, being replaced by the Blade Masters. Their abilities allow them to be used in many different situations, making the Rivendell Swordsmen very strategically adaptable.
