7. Aragorn Character Guide
Aragorn is the rightful heir to the throne of Gondor, and
he is a superb ranger. His primary weapon in this game
is the sword, and he can even wield two at a time with
a certain skill!
Starting Stats and Skills
Herbal Remedy (1)
Herbal Remedy (Level 1) - Heals 25 hit points +5/ level.
Herbs are more effective. 8 spirit +2/level.
- A good skill to have, and Aragorn does start off with a
point in it. Raising this skill more than a few points is
ill-advised, and keeping this skill at level 1 is probably
the best choice.
This is a table to show the level and sp usage and hp
restoration: (Created by: Unknown Knight)
Level 1: 8sp for 25hp, 3.125hp/sp
Level 2: 10sp for 30hp, 3hp/sp
Level 3: 12sp for 35hp, 2.917hp/sp
Level 4: 14sp for 40hp, 2.857hp/sp
And so on and so forth.
Conclusion, it's a waste of sp for hp, so stick to the
original spell. Moreover, it wastes ability points!
Commanding Presence (Level 5) - Stuns foes around Aragorn.
Stun time increases per level. 7 spirit +2/level.
- Depending on your style of combat, you may or may not
want to put points into this skill. Personally I didn't
put any points in this skill because it requires too
many points to be effective in my opinion. It is popular
with many players though, and you should try it to see
if you want to use it.
Rage of the North (Level 10) - Rage increases damage +2
per level while in effect. 10 spirit. Corrupt.
- I would recommend against this skill. The corruption
that it causes can be limited by the passive skill
Numenorean Blood, but the pros of this spell aren't that
great. It doesn't last that long, and the damage increase
isn't that substantial.
Call Legolas (Level 10) - Legolas appears to fight the
enemy with his bow. +1 damage/level. 24 spirit.
- Not worth the cost of spirit for what it does. Calling
an ally is fun and can be useful, but the price of this
skill will deplete Aragorn's already low amount of spirit
Sword Throw (Level 2) - Aragorn throws his sword at foes
+1 damage/level. 4 spirit.
- Can be useful, but is overshadowed by sweep at higher
levels. I would recommend just one point in this skill
to help eliminate crows without alerting them to your
presence. Can be useful in other select situations also,
when an enemy can't hit you but you can hit them with
a ranged attack.
Sweep (Level 5) - Spin attack affects all foes around
Aragorn, doing +1 damage/level. 8 spirit.
- Good attack that can really prove useful. Hitting
multiple enemies with one attack can be extremely useful,
and this is a favorite skill of many Aragorn users. You
should at least try this attack to see if you like it.
Dual Wield (Level 2) - Allows use of two swords. Second
blade does half damage, +1 per level.
- When playing Aragorn, you have to make a choice of
playing with two swords or a sword and shield. More info
on that is in the stragety section for Aragorn. Most
players should at least put one point in this skill to try
this skill out and to unlock Numenorean Blood, one of
Aragorn's better skills.
Numenorean Blood (Level 10) - Lessens corruption by
5%/level and +2 damage to Ringwraiths/level.
- Numenorean Blood is one of Aragorn's best skills. It
reduces your corruption and it aids in combat against
Ringwraiths. Be careful though. If you want to fight
Ringwraiths, don't increase this skill so much that you
can't be corrupted! Or you can always play multiplayer.
