Elrond Half-Elven joins the fray in Guardians of Middle-earth trailer

Elrond Half-Elven is joining Warner Bros' Lord of the Rings-themed MOBA Guardians of Middle-earth, and this trailer shows the Elf lord in action.

Elrond is classified as a "tactician" character, focusing more on battlefield control rather than high-damage strikes. In the video, he's shown summoning a spectral archer to aid him and placing area-of-effect spells on the ground.

In Tolkien's legendarium, Elrond was one of the most powerful forces for good in Middle-earth as the lord of Rivendell and the bearer of the magic ring Vilya.
