"Their astonishment was enormous when Thorin Oakenshield stepped in through the door.
'Who are you and what do you want?' they shouted leaping to their feet and groping for weapons.
'Thorin son of Thráin son of Thrór King under the Mountain!' said the dwarf in a loud voice, and he looked it, in spite of his torn clothes and draggled hood. The gold gleamed on his neck and waist; his eyes were dark and deep."
The Hobbit, "A Warm Welcome"

"Suddenly there was a great shout, and from the Gate came a trumpet call. They had forgotten Thorin! Part of the wall, moved by levers, fell outward with a crash into the pool. Out leapt the King under the Mountain, and his companions followed him. Hood and cloak were gone; they were in shining armour, and red light leapt from their eyes. In the gloom the great dwarf gleamed like gold in a dying fire."
The Hobbit, "The Clouds Burst"

Strategy

Thorin is an extremely useful hero as he can permanently summon Kili and Fili and can become invulnerable for 10 seconds. He can also stun enemies while granting a damage boost to friendly troops to decimate an army. He also helps you to loot resources per kill.

As Ring hero his usefulness depends on the situation: If you are dominating your victory is assured and if you are turtling your defeat is assured. Fire of Durin's Forge deals a lot of damage to units and heroes and instantly kills most battalions, and The Immortal is one of the most powerful abilities possible as it grants all allies invulnerability throughout the map.
