Yet, Master Peregrin, we have this honour: ever we bear the brunt of the chief hatred of the Dark Lord, for that hatred comes down out of the depths of time and over the deeps of the Sea. Here will the hammer-stroke fall hardest. For if we fall, who shall stand?

–Beregond about Gondor in The Return of the King, Minas Tirith

Gondor Soldiers are the bulk of the fighting force of Gondor. They defend their homeland from evil creatures such as Mordor Orcs. They wear tough Gondorian armour and fight with sturdy Gondorian swords, warhammers and spears.

Gondor Archers are similar to Gondor Soldiers, but they use bows and arrows instead of melee combat. Gondor Tower Guards are a special type of soldier who guard the Beacon Towers and are distinguished by their winged helmets.

Behaviour Edit

Gondor Soldiers will defend their home to the last man! Gondor Soldiers attack any sort of evil creature and take unkindly to the player if they have a negative alignment to Gondor. When they see something that doesn't belong in Gondor, they will charge at it and try to kill it.

Attack strengthEdit

Weapon Damage (HP)
Spear 4 (4hearts) (melee), 5 (5hearts) (throw)
Sword, Lance* 4-5 (4hearts to 5hearts)
Warhammer 7 (7hearts)

*Only mounted Gondorian soldiers will ever wield lances.

Spawning Edit

Gondor Soldiers spawn throughout the land of Gondor. They can spawn in any light level, but only on top of grass blocks. Soldiers naturally spawned in this way will continually spawn and despawn over time, similar to other mobs. They can sometimes spawn riding a horse; if so, the horse will be armoured.

Gondor Soldiers can spawn wielding any of these four weapons; sword, warhammer, spear or dagger. The most common units, however, are swordsmen.

Additionally, Gondor Fortresses will generate with Gondor Soldiers. The soldiers in the fortresses do not despawn. If they are killed or somehow removed from their position, the structure will spawn more soldiers to replace them. 

Hiring Edit

You can hire these soldiers from a Gondorian Captain, to be found in Gondor Fortresses, if you have a Gondor alignment of at least +150. They cost 30 Silver Coins, and are the cheapest Gondorian unit. When hiring Gondor Soldiers, they will be wielding a random Gondorian Melee Weapon. They can also be purchased for the same price from Lebennin Levymasters, found in Pelargir fortresses and watchforts, but have a Gondor alignment requirement of +200. A mounted variant will cost you 50 silver coins and +250 alignment.

Advantages Disadvantages
Average armour. No ranged attack
Average health. Weak against mounted foes (Warg riders) unless mounted
Can spawn mounted. Black uruks can make short work of them.
Their low cost and alignment requirement allows a new player to hire a large army early on in the game. Very weak against Olog-hai and other trolls


Gondor Soldiers commonly drop bones. They have a rare chance of dropping the Gondorian armour or weapons that they are carrying upon their death.
