Season 3 of LOTR: Rise to War commenced in February 2022, and it introduced various new content, including commanders, troops, and factions.
Lord of the Rings (LOTR): Rise to War is an exhilarating mobile game that takes place in the Third Age of Middle-earth. It offers you a stunning and faithful interpretation of the fictitious world of Arda.
Players can embark on numerous adventurous journeys to build armies for conquest. You will have to strategically expand your territory in pursuit of the One Ring.
The game has various seasons, each of which introduce new and exciting content. You are, thus, able to enjoy new Commanders, structures, troops, and factions every time a new season launches. The game undergoes a season reset before a new season starts.
What is a season reset?
A season will usually last a few months, and when it comes to an end, the game’s developers perform a season reset. This essentially means that the regions and all tiles your faction has captured, will reset.
Your settlement’s progress will also reset and you will have to start from the beginning once the new season starts.
Players should note, however, that all the equipment and Commanders they have collected in a season, will not reset, but will be carried over to the next season. A season reset gives everyone a fair chance to begin a new chapter.
It is a clean slate, where nobody is at a disadvantage, or has an advantage over another faction or other players.
LOTR: Rise to War Season 3
Season 3 of LOTR: Rise to War commenced on 10 February 2022, and brought with it new commanders, factions, and troops, among other things.
Keep in mind that the commanders and troops that you can collect are determined by your faction. This means that you are not able to collect all the new commanders.
The table below indicates the new commanders and their tiers:
In addition to new commanders, you are also able to hire new neutral units. Keepers are powerful Elven units with the potential of dealing Focus damage, while Seafarers are melee units that excel at Crossing, by gaining a 50 per cent damage buff.
Vanguards are powerful neutral units that can boost their own damage when they are combined with undead allies. Wraiths are undead melee units that are able to reduce enemy defences by no more than 50 per cent.
Are there new factions in season 3?
Season 3 introduced 2 new factions, namely, Gundabad and Variags. Gundabad is located in the north of the Middle-earth, east of Angmar.
This means that they have the potential to expand either east or west of the Misty Mountains. Gundabad members have access to Eagles, Wraiths, Vanguards and Beornings.
Variags is situated to the east of Mordor, but to the south of Rhûn. Members of this faction will have nowhere to expand to without fighting their neighbours.
Moreover, they are not placed near any decent neutral units. It is, therefore, advised that only experienced players choose Variags as a faction if they are up for a challenge.
Players will have the opportunity to acquire new equipment, accessories, and weapons in the new season of the game. The following table indicates some of the new gear you can obtain and a description of each:
|– Increases Commander’s might by 8 per cent
– Increases Commander’s focus by 12 per cent
– Increases an undead army’s attack by 1 per cent
|– Increases a Commander’s might by 8 per cent.
