Pineleaf’s Pictorial Primer to Skirmishing: Solo Lieuteants

One of the principal features of skirmishes are the lieutenants. Skirmish lieutenants are noted for their special abilities. Each has an ability or behavior pattern that makes that lieutenant memorable.

Usually you will face one of these special opponents at a time but there are some circumstances where you may find yourself facing two or more.

Then you face lieutenants, it is best to be prepared. In this appendix, we will take a look at the 14 lieutenants that can appear in skirmishes of all sizes (solo, duo, small fellowship, fellowship, and raid). I refer to these as “solo lieutenants” as they are the only lieutenants that can appear in solo runs. Later appendices will describe those lieutenants that can only appear in group skirmishes.

There is something I must note concerning the Venomous Blood-arrow’s damage values. The Blood-arrow countdown damage values on the live servers is currently too high. The numbers shown in this appendix are the corrected values that are expected to go live with the November 2010 update.

This guide is provided in PDF format for easy reading and reference.

May your shield protect you and your spear never break.
