The Lord of the Rings Minecraft Mod Wiki

Easterling Archers are the ranged fighting units of the land of Rhúdel. They perform ranged attacks using a Rhûnic bow.


Easterling Archers spawn in their land atop any grass block regardless of the time of day, or the light level. Like the bowmen of the Rohirrim, they may occasionally spawn riding a horse. Unlike the Rohirrim, their horses are not armoured.


These archers don't bother any entities that are friends with their faction, but will take rather unkindly to enemies in that they tend to shoot arrows at them until they're as prickly as a porcupine. If these units are atop a horse, their attack range increases to 24 blocks from the usual 16, and they also move much faster.


These units can be hired for the price of 50 silver coins and 250 alignment. A mounted archer will be 70 coins and 350 alignment. Higher alignment will mean lower prices.

Advantages Disadvantages
Good attack strength Rather expensive
Shoots faster and further than most evil ranged units Can only be hired in Rhúdel, which is far away from Shire
Can be mounted Rather weak armour.


These archers will drop 0-2 arrows upon death, along with a bone about half the time. They may drop their bow or armour on rare occasions.

  • Elves do not deserve their long lives, Person. Blind to the world, and yet so arrogant...
  • Our armies will soon meet with our war-kin from the East and the South. Vengeance is near, Person!
  • You should never trust the Dwarves, Person! One ran away with my wife to the Red Mountains!

  • Once, many lives ago, the Men of Gondor tried to put all of our people to the sword. But they have grown weak, and we grew strong!

  • The great Eye is with us, Person. You will never prevail!
  • Your time here is over, Person. I will make sure of that!
  • Your time on this earth will end now!
  • Foolish of you, Person, to take up a fight with us!
  • Surrender, Person! You cannot survive our strength.
  • You have chosen the wrong side in this war!
  • You should not have come here!
  • My ancestors are smiling on me, Gondorian. Can you say the same?
  • No more will we suffer under the hands of Westerling filth!
  • The Eye is rising, and your lands will burn!
  • You cannot hope to challenge the power of the East!
  • Flee, Westerling filth!
  • You are a villain out of Gondor!


  • I await your orders, Person.
  • I stand with you.
  • My blade is yours, Person.
  • I would follow you into the White City itself!
  • The lands of the West shall burn!
  • For the Golden Empire! For the Great Eye!
  • Please, Person, don't make us march with those dirty Orcs.
  • I have waited long for the day of our vengeance!
  • Gondor is weak, Person. They will not survive our assault!
  • I am ready to fight with you!
  • Our people are stronger, faster, and better armed than those Western brutes.
  • The Men of Gondor are weak.
  • Let us march West, Person!
  • Long have I wished to lay waste to the lands of Gondor.
  • I will do as you wish.
