A Balrog (/ ˈ b æ l r ɒ ɡ /) is a powerful fictional monster in J. R. R. 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. Feanor was killed by two balrog's. 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). Thank you for reading and I hope you liked this project! Feb 22, 2018 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. HOWEVER - I am currently re-reading LotR, and just finished FotR. 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. When Earendil cast Ancalagon from the sky the dragon was finished and it smote Thangorodrim in its ruin just as the Balrog of Moria smote the mountainside in ITS ruin. How can a mortal kill a Balrog? Answer: We don't know exactly how much, but there were many. Balrogs aren't just independent spirits - no, they actually have (or had) a Lord, and his name was Gothmog.

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). (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.) It took Gandalf, a Maia, 3 days and 3 nights to smite Durin's Bane, and even then, he died. There … Balrogs, also known as the Valaraukar, were Maiar that were seduced and corrupted by Melkor into his service.

(Of the Fourth Battle: Nírnaith Arnediad, ... 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? None of them are equal in power, and most are very different in appearance: ... Balrogs are very different and take many forms. When it comes to slaying Ainur there are relatively few detailed examples, and only four “canonical” examples at that: Only be 7 Balrogs can exist at one time and only one has ever served in Sauron's army.

Gothmog (Sindarin IPA: [ˈɡoθmoɡ] - "Strife and Hate") was the Lord of Balrogs during the First Age, and the greatest Balrog ever to walk Middle-earth. In some of Tolkien's text, he describes an army of balrogs led by Gothmog.

There the Balrog revealed itself fully, and the darkness with which it cloaked itself expanded. R. Mika, the rush-down mix-up wrestler I've reported on before, is Balrog's worst nightmare. 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. As the High Captain of Angband, his only equal in rank was Sauron. There are other reasons that I do not like that picture. The only Gothmog of the Lord of the Rings is the the Lieutenant of Morgul; an interesting figure quoted only once commanding armies of Men to plunder Minas Tirith. How To Fight Balrog As soon you enter the room you will notice many things. 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. 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. Gothmog lived in the First Age and served under Melkor. 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. Maybe this Balrog has “fine” teeth. For the Balrog met in The Fellowship of the Ring see: Durin's Bane. 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. Perhaps it will be a gimmick fight, ending with us drowning the Balrog? Elphion 17:27, 27 March 2008 (UTC) I also merged Number in with Characteristics, albeit removing most of the detail. 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. Because Balrog doesn't have a useful escape option, he can be frustrating to play.

With the destructive nature of Trolls and the flames of Dragons, they served the First Dark Lord in his wars in Beleriand to dominate all of the World and oppress the Free Peoples of Middle-earth. How many balrogs existed is debatable. The only character I would say could slay a balrog … • The sword effect is great. My feeling is that the lords of the Noldor would be approximately 2 meters tall on average, balrogs perhaps 2.25 meters tall on average and Morgoth himself perhaps 2.4 - 2.5 meters tall. Seriously, how the hell is this going to work? There are many maiar in Tolkien’s legendarium. In fact, a more perfect result generally looks dead. There you have it.

I'm pretty sure the only recorded history of this is when Ecthelion swayed Gothmog, the lord of Balrogs into a fountain and extinguished his flame. After all, it survived the long fall. Alcuin Active Member. 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.

The details are not there. 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.

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. But several die to the hands of Elves, Eagles, and Men, and more almost certainly fall to the Valar when they destroy Thangorodrim.
