A herald in battle would be a worthy leader and formidable fighter themselves [In reply to] Can't Post

I mean who the heck would want to discuss terms on a battle field with someone who was no scarier than Strawberry Shortcake on a bad day.

In the Tolkien mythology Eonwe was the herald of Manwe and he (Eonwe) was greatest in arms of anyone who has ever been in Arda, including the Valar.

Third Age power rankings (I am unsure whether I like or loathe these things)

Sauron
Gandalf the White
Saruman the White
Gandalf the Grey
Galadriel
Glorfindel
Elrond or Cirdan
Cirdan or Elrond
Jeff the Balrog
Arwen
Elladin & Elrohir (any girl with two older brothers will be tougher than both of them put together and also have Daddy wrapped around her little finger)
Fran Walsh
Phillipa Boyens
Katie Jackson
Sir Peter Jackson
The Witch King
Farmer Maggot's wife
Khamul
Farmer Maggot
Grip (one of Farmer Maggot's dogs)
Third Nazgul from the left
The other Nazgul just behind him...no not the the one with the horsemans mace, the one with the shield and sword...yes that's him.
Rosie Cotton (anyone who can tame the Hobbit that probably mortally wounded Shelob....nuff said, let alone bear and raise that many hobbitlings)
The Nazgul preoccupied with his Galaxy III, playing Angry Fell Beasts I guess
Bill the Pony
The Black Arrow of Dale
Smaug
Fang (the second toughest of Farmer Maggot's dogs)
Farmer Maggot's last dog whose real name was Pookie, not Wolf.
The last 4 Nazgul all equal (equally useless because they could never do anything unless they all agreed on it...oooh look Mount Dooms on fire lets take a closer look)
Mudwiggle the Worm
Celeborn (otherwise known as Teleporno.....no seriously that is one of the names given to him by Tolkien, I can't remember if it was Quenya, Sinda or Klingon in origin but that was deinitely one of his names)



I don't count Bombadil because he is an enigma, in Middle Earth but not of Middle Earth, and besides he stole my boots.

Radagast would be in there somewhere if he wanted to, my best guess is probably between Saruman the White and Galadriel if he could be bothered to stop chasing butterflies and building bird houses.

Power rankings do not equate to combat ability, they have some bearing in some respects but don't neccessarily correspond.
