Gil-galad is a tier 3 commander on the good side in LOTR Rise To War who is particularly effective against commanders who deal high damage but have low defensive stats, such as Witch King. Gil-galad is a commander with a high Might and Speed, which is extremely useful. What’s great about Gil-galad is that he excels at respect level 3, so you don’t have to rush him to respect level 5. When you reach respect level 5, you will unlock a skill that increases Gil-galad survivability, so if you need it, go for it.
When it comes to equipment for Gil-galad you want to use items that have a high amount of Might and Focus, and for troops, you must use elves. All bonuses are only available to elf troops.
Gil-galad is a Tier 3 Commander, and the first thing you should notice and acknowledge is his base trait, “Leader.” The “Leader” trait grants Gil-galad +5 Command. Might is Gil-galad strongest stat. Might increase Physical damage dealt with enemy units and Commanders.
Every time your Commander advances in level, you will gain a talent point to invest in their skill tree. There are four main skills and thus four different focus points in the Gil-galad skill tree. It’s worth noting that each of these four major skills is linked to two other skills that you’ll gain access to after leveling up the main skill to level 2. On Commander Respect level 1, you will have two main skills to begin with.
