Tactical Information

Cry of the Valar can be useful for removing corruptions. There are few corruption removal skills in the game that work at long range, and few that apply to multiple targets.


Before the release of Rise of Isengard this skill was called Anthem of the Valar. The skill that was previously known as Cry of the Valar is now Invocation of Elbereth-icon.png Invocation of Elbereth.
