Brush is a map elements located on all maps for Guardians of Middle-earth. They are found at many locations on each map and play a significant role in combat.


  • When in brush, Guardians are invisible to all opposing players unless another enemy Guardian enters the same brush.
  • If this occurs, the enemy player and all their friendly units and teammates can immediately see the Guardian in the brush.
  • Brush can be used strategically to hide from enemies, either to wait for abilities to return from cooldown or to ambush enemy Guardians.
  • Entering brush immediately breaks line of site if no opposing units are also inside the brush. This allows players to escape enemy unit attacks, such as those from Gothmog's turret, while technically remaining within range of attack.
