For the Lord of the Galadhrim is accounted the wisest of the Elves of Middle-earth, and a giver of gifts beyond the power of kings.

The Fellowship of the Ring, The Mirror of Galadriel

The Galadhrim Lord spawns naturally in grand Elven treehouses, in the woods of Lothlórien. They are recognizable by the cloak they wear and the coin in their hand. They also are clad in Galadhrim armor, though they do not wear the helm.

From these lords, the player is able to hire Galadhrim troops. Doing so will give the player the achievement "Lórien's Finest".


Galadhrim lords will wander around the grand treehouses in which they spawn.

Like all unit hiring NPCs, they will not attack any mob or NPC until provoked, regardless of alignment. Should they be provoked, they will fight back with a Galadhrim sword.


Galadhrim lords will give the player the ability to command the forces of Lothlórien for a small bit of silver coins, provided that the player has the necessary alignment and has pledged to an Elven faction. Note that only pledging to Lothlórien will halve the price of its units.
