Barrow-wight Lord Joins Guardians of Middle-Earth

By Rebecca Smith,
The Barrow-wight Lord is not a nice person undead being. He brings his death-defying skills to Guardians of Middle-earth as the last Guardian to be included in the Season Pass, the other seven being Bilbo Baggins, Bert, Great Goblin, Thorin Oakenshield, Radagast, Glóin and Snaga. Look upon him and despair:

Barrow-wight Lord’s Bio:
Vanquished and twisted by corruption, even in death the Barrow-wight Lord is a powerful remnant of a stalwart line of Men, banished to the Barrow Downs. In life, the Barrow-wight Lord’s power was great, but in death it has been twisted and convoluted into a creature that bears no resemblance to its original form. Seeking only to destroy that which it may have sought to rule or protect in life, death only brings more pain and suffering to the Barrow-wight Lord and those who dare oppose it.

Barrow-wight Lord’s Gameplay Abilities:
Barrow’s Torment: Damages enemy Guardian or creature initially and over time
Drain the Soul: Life steals from a single target
Chilling Touch: Reduces enemy Guardian or creature attack speed while increasing own
Undeath: Passive death immunity, teleport and damage an enemy while undead

Barrow-wight Lord’s Class:
• Enchanter
6/3/13 Barrow-wight Lord
