Gondor Archers are similar to Gondor soldiers, except that instead of using a sword or other melee weapon, they use a bow and arrows. Just like all Gondor Soldiers, they will attack evil creatures on sight, and can drop some of their worn equipment on occasion.


Gondor archers can spawn anywhere Gondor soldiers spawn, however they are slightly rarer. They cannot spawn mounted as of Public Beta 28.


Like most ranged units in the mod, Gondor archers will see foes from up to 16 blocks away, and they will walk to within 10 blocks of the offending player or NPC and start shooting at it. As with most of the mod's NPC's that use bows, they will carry their bows by their sides when idle, and raise them into a firing position when provoked.


Evil players may kill Gondorians to acquire bones. The Men may also rarely drop their equipped armour or weapons.

You can hire these units for a price of 50 silver coins from a Gondorian captain in a Gondor fortress, provided your alignment is at least 300 with Gondor. Gondor archers are relatively cheap and require less alignment than Galadhrim Elf warriors, but they still have a powerful ranged attack, making them a good choice for good players early on in the game. Additionally, unlike the aforementioned Elven warriors, they don't require a pledge to Gondor to hire.

Advantages Disadvantages
Powerful long ranged attack More expensive than Gondor Soldiers
Very effective against Olog-hai and Trolls Large numbers of Gondor Archers tend to interfere with one another
Good against Warg Riders Not particulaily good at dealing with large numbers of melee units
Stronger armour than Rohirrim Archer Cannot be mounted.
