Galadhrim Wardens are a class of Galadhrim Elves tasked 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.
Galadhrim Wardens will wander randomly around their forest home and in their tree-top houses. Galadhrim Wardens will not hesitate to attack creatures of evil using a Galadhrim 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.
Galadhrim Wardens have spawning mechanics similar to all other mobs. In the Lothlórien biome (and its eaves), 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. They can also rarely be found in the nearby areas of the Field of Celebrant and the Anduin (both its hills and vales, as well as the Gladden Fields).
The Wardens can be hired from a Galadhrim Lord for 80 coins. You must have at least +350 with the Galadhrim to hire them. As always, cost decreases as alignment increases and halves should the player pledge to Lothlórien.
|Their hiding ability is more effective than the rangers. They could even trick humans on multiplayer servers.||Weak armor (you can fix this by well-equipping them)|
|Great Health||High alignment and pledge needed|
|Alert the player of nearing enemies with their battlecry||Once spotted, Orcs could make them an easy work|
|Immune to poison|
Galadhrim Wardens, or Wardens of Lórien, 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.
Galadhrim Wardens, on most occasions 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, lembas and their armour.
These fair people of the forest are wise in the Lore 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.
