Just for the sake of being the last review for Steward's Fear, I am going to review this handsome chap. Out of all the 4 classic allies (Knights of the Swan, Ethir Swordsman, and Anfalas Herdsman, I would say that this one is the worst. While he is still better than Forlong or Hunter of Lamedon, is just not what swarm allies are for. You need all 3 of these warriors just to survive the average enemy, plus some herdsmen to survive shadows. Out of , , and , is the least beneficial for swarm. I am sorry my friend, but your best use is Siege questing. However, outlands is overpowered so you are still incredible.
I agree that his boost is probably the worst of the 4 classic outlands allies, because a chump blocker will always be a chump blocker, even with an extra shield. However, a couple of these guys will help make Hirluin into a better defender, especially if you get a Gondorian Shield on him. So he's not the best, but not terrible either. — BlackArrow 265
