They were clad in shadowy-grey, and could not be seen among the tree-stems, unless they moved suddenly.

The Fellowship of the Ring, Lothlórien

Galadhrim Wardens are a class of Galadhrim Elves dutied with guarding the borders of the lands of Lothlórien against the forces of evil. They are clad in Galadhrim Cloaks, which make them almost invisible whilst fighting enemies and to the unfriendly eye.

Behaviour Edit

Galadhrim Wardens will wander randomly around their forest home and in their tree-top houses. Galadhrim Wardens will not hesitate attack creatures of evil using a Mallorn Bow at long range, and they will close in for melee combat with a Galadhrim Dagger should their target come too close.

A Galadhrim Warden's reaction to you depends upon your alignment with them. Galadhrim Elves will not react well to an evil trespasser in their forest! Also be wary that harvesting Mallorn Trees with below ten positive alignment shall cause Galadhrim Wardens to attack you.

Spawning Edit

Galadhrim Wardens have spawning mechanics similar to all other mobs. In the Lothlórien biome, Galadhrim Wardens will spawn and despawn continuously, keeping the population of the forest at a constant level. Galadhrim Wardens will only spawn upon grass blocks.

Hiring Edit

The Wardens can be hired from a Galadhrim Lord for 40 coins. You must have at least +350 with the Galadhrim to hire them.

Lore Edit

Galadhrim Wardens, or Wardens of Lorien, were small groups of Galadhrim elves tasked with the protection of The Golden Wood against the forces of Moria and Dol Guldur. During the War of The Ring, Haldir and his wardens led the Fellowship through Lothlórien.

Drops Edit

Galadhrim Wardens, on most occaisions drop arrows and Elf bones when slain. Uncommonly they may also drop equipment which they are using. On rare occasions, they may also drop uncommon Elvish items such as miruvor and lembas and their armour.

Speech Bank Edit

These fair people of the forest are wise in the Lord of old and are as ancient as the forest surrounding them! They may seem peaceful and calm but dark days have come and the elves must protect there forest and ancient trees. These elves also have a long running feud with the dwarves and orcs so it's just not smart to get in there bad side.
