The Lord of the Rings Minecraft Mod Wiki

Four tall Men stood there. Two had spears in their hands with broad bright heads. Two had great bows, almost of their own height, and great quivers of long green-feathered arrows. All had swords at their sides, and were clad in green and brown of varied hues, as if the better to walk unseen in the glades of Ithilien.

Rangers of Ithilien are warriors that spawn in Ithilien and Harondor. They are the remnants of the inhabitants of Ithilien before Sauron laid waste to Osgiliath and destroyed eastern Ithilien.


Rangers of Ithilien spawn night and day in Harondor and Ithilien. They will only spawn on top of a grass block, which means that they will not normally spawn underground.


Rangers will drop 0-2 arrows and sometimes a bone, coal, or Paper upon death. On rare occasions, they will drop a piece of their armour or equipped weapon.

Rangers of Ithilien patrolling Harondor.

They were selected from the descendants of the people who had dwelt in Ithilien before it fell from Gondor's control in TA 2901. They were camouflaged in green and brown cloaks, and fought in a style resembling modern Guerrilla Warfare: that is, stealth, sneak attacks, etc. They often crossed the Anduin in secret to harass the forces of the Enemy in Gondor's old domain.

The Rangers often conducted ambushes against the Haradrim (digging traps for their Mumakil), attacked Orc scouts, and protected the old road from Minas Morgul to Osgiliath. Ranger attacks were feared and dreaded by all of the enemies of Gondor, being able to slaughter entire battalions at unawares. Just a hundred of these highly-trained, woodcrafty archers can take out companies multiple times their size. They were very deadly with a bow (which was their primary weapon) and they were nearly as skilful at stealth as the elves, even if they had only heard of them in stories at the fireside. Their leader at the time of the War of the Ring was Faramir, Captain of Gondor.


In the presence of Sauron's minions (most likely Mordor Orcs), they become almost invisible (ghost-like form) and cannot be spotted by an enemy NPC unless they engage in melee combat.

Sometimes Rangers of Ithilien do not agree over who they should target first...

As a weapon, they use a Gondorian bow at long range and a Gondorian sword at close range. They are equipped with a full set of Ithilien Ranger armour and can be distinguished from Rangers of the North by their set of weapons and the White Tree on their chestplate. The Rangers of Ithilien (like their distant comrades, the Rangers of the North as well as Elves) are one of the few units in the game able to toggle weapons, in their case between the Gondorian sword, Gondorian dagger(Non-Poisoned) and Gondorian Bow.

With the addition of mini-quests in Public Beta 20, the player may be given a quest by either a Mordor Orc or by one of the Southrons to kill a certain number of Rangers of Ithilien and then return to the quest-giver.


Rangers can also spawn in Ithilien Ranger hideouts along with an Ithilien Ranger captain, from whom you can hire Rangers.

The requirements for this are that you have at least +300 alignment with Gondor and are willing to spend 50 silver coins. Eventually, after a certain point of alignment is earned, the minimum price for an Ithilien Ranger is 25 silver coins.

Advantages Disadvantages
Good for killing Olog-Hai. Hard to find Ranger Hideouts.
Can turn invisible. Can get killed when enemy gets close.
Can perform both ranged and melee attacks. Not a cheap unit.
Fast attacks/Ridiculous Fire speed Cannot turn invisible again once damaged
Very good swarm Unit
