Elphion 19:33, 27 March 2008 (UTC) Balrog of Moria's awakening. But if we assume that Balrogs could fly (and there is no reason why we should assume they could not), then there was still no reason for the Balrog to fly out of the chasm. Elphion 17:27, 27 March 2008 (UTC) I also merged Number in with Characteristics, albeit removing most of the detail. When Balrogs transition from being a race of created creatures to being self-incarnating Maiar, there is zero, absolutely zero, indication in the text that any physical features of them have changed, so the only reasonable conclusion is that they still look like they did before, which means they still look as if they were all members of a single race. There are better and much easier to obtain souls in the game. There one more objection is raised: “Why didn’t the Balrog save itself when it fell from the mountainside?” The answer is that dead and dying Balrogs, like dead and dying dragons, don’t fly. The details are not there. R. Mika, the rush-down mix-up wrestler I've reported on before, is Balrog's worst nightmare. He was given the title Lord of the Balrogs, and he fought (and won) many battles for his master. There are more problems. There you have it. There are many maiar in Tolkien’s legendarium.

Balrogs did come to be imagined as Umaiar, but in the early 1950s at least Tolkien might have been holding on to 'many' Balrogs despite being Maiar? There are no clear statements in Lord of the Rings as to the 'allegiance' of the Balrog, and so it is often wondered if perhaps the Balrog of Moria was acting independently or awaiting the return of Morgoth rather than acting as a servant of Sauron. Feanor was killed by two balrog's. Although is does properly show the balrog without wings, it makes the balrog too inhuman looking. Durin's Bane survived, and it is possible that more Balrogs fled the destruction of Morgoth. That said, I think if Gandalf knew a Balrog was in there, maybe he would have attempted the High Pass. Considering it's mapleroyals we could maybe add a small chance of 100 and/or 250nx being dropped aswell, and maybe some other goodies to enhance the demand for people wanting to do Lord balrog bossing, from what i remember there were no limits on how many times you could go to Lord Balrog, but the exp gets worse at about lv 80 from what i remember, not sure tho.

Tolkien's Middle-earth.It first appeared in print in his high fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings, where the Fellowship of the Ring encounter one known as Durin's Bane in the Mines of Moria.Balrogs appear also in Tolkien's The Silmarillion and other posthumously published books. • the second balrog is bigger than the first (height = 45-cm, instead of 35), length = 40-cm.

Feb 22, 2018 Balrog (brick built) Piece count: 28 7 (This is not final it is just how many I used) If you think of something you think this project needs let me know in the comments! If another user wants to know how fine a Balrog’s teeth are, and so wants to search for “fine” in proximity to “Balrog”, the index must include one version for every possible combination of strings not only in Joe’s corrected text … We know there was a Balrog in Moria and that only Gandalf seemed capable of slaying it. There is no definite answer to your question, but by the events of Lord of the Rings only a very small number remains, and the only known Balrog is Durin's Bane in Moria and one under Barad-dur. In fact, a more perfect result generally looks dead. After all, it survived the long fall. Perhaps it will be a gimmick fight, ending with us drowning the Balrog?

That leaves the Balrog with his whip of many thongs, ... Smaug would snatch up Durin’s Bane and gobble him up with his sword-sharp teeth (and we know swords can kill Balrogs). Only be 7 Balrogs can exist at one time and only one has ever served in Sauron's army. It took Gandalf, a Maia, 3 days and 3 nights to smite Durin's Bane, and even then, he died. In some of Tolkien's text, he describes an army of balrogs led by Gothmog.

As the High Captain of Angband, his only equal in rank was Sauron. When it comes to slaying Ainur there are relatively few detailed examples, and only four “canonical” examples at that: There is no point in reproducing the argument blow-by-blow here; there are many sites on the Web for the curious, and this argument will not be settled here. Balrogs, as they are known in Arda (real names Valaraukar),are an extremely powerful demonic race of fallen Maiar found in J.R.R Tolkien's fantasy universe of Arda andMiddle-earth. There's that scene right near the end where Legolas shoots down a large black creature in the sky (which we can assume was a Ringwraith on one of those big reptile steed things). There … The Balrog is one of the most iconic monsters in Tolkien lore, and is just as famous within the realm of the LotR-TCG.There are few strategies that center around the Balrog itself, as he was most popular in Fellowship block, and all versions available in that time period restrict him only to underground sites, which is fairly crippling. (Going too near Isengard would risk a fight with Saruman, who is as dangerous as a Balrog, and, unlike the Balrog, actually HAD bested him before.) Madman198237 wrote: It never states exactly how many Balrogs there actually were, as far as I know. Because Balrog doesn't have a useful escape option, he can be frustrating to play. And if Ecthelion was able to kill 4 it is possible that these other elf lords could have killed a balrog, but I'm not sure with relative ease. None of them are equal in power, and most are very different in appearance: ... Balrogs are very different and take many forms. • The sword effect is great. The only character I would say could slay a balrog … That leaves the Balrog with his whip of many thongs, ... Smaug would snatch up Durin’s Bane and gobble him up with his sword-sharp teeth (and we know swords can kill Balrogs).
