    Except Legolas was a pussy in the movies. I blame it on Orlando Bloom. :S And besides, this topic is abt who will win if I'm not wrong, so personal opinions w/o logic shouldn't be taken into account. :S

    How exactly was Legolas a pussy in the movie??? Do explain. And Legolas is the only character played by Bloom that I like. Legolas would win...no matter where drizzy moves there will be an arrow flying at him and eventually he would get hit. As for close combat Drizzt is probably better, Though Leggy is decent.

    Why I said Legolas was a pussy in the movies was the same reason why you said Drizzt is one. Meaning the nub bashing. As for your argument of combat, go look back on all that Met has said. There's only five pages of this thread and it won't kill you to browse through them. :S Plus Drizzt is a much more in-depth character than Legolas, so in terms of character impact, it's still Drizzt ftw.

    Drizzt is way too stealth for Legolas, not to mention his magical enhancements. Middle Earth is a low-magic fantasy setting, leaving Legolas at a disadvantage.

    "I will fire millions of arrows until I hit"

    Oh wait...I forgot quivers don't hold infinite arrows :S

    True but in the situation where they start at a distance I think Legolas would win. I don't think he would let it come to a close combat fight. Even with Drizzts magical drow abilities and anklets I still don't think he could take Legolas..imo

    "I don't think he would let him come close".

    What proof do you have of such a thing? We've already seen Drizzt close down on mages hurling magical projectiles at the guy and he's still closed the gap.

    Drizzt especially with his bracers (on his legs) can quite literally dodge and parry arrows; his hands move so fast that even bracers which increase your hand speed had no affect on him. Then taking into consideration Drizzt in Hunter mode it's like being hunted by a god.

    Not to mention his great ability of trapping his enemies means he can use the surroundings to his advantage to close the gap. Unless they are in an open field, which I highly doubt would happen. It's quite obvious to see that Drizzt is intended to be a demi-god of battle.

    I don't have proof...thats why I put "I think". And what I meant by that is I think Legolas would be smart enough not to engage in close combat with drizzt seeing as how he specializes in the bow and drizzt would be weilding two scimitars. Plus I don't think Legolas would stand in one spot and shoot..so eventually drizzt would get hit even with his bracers

    First he's got to hit, second his arrows have actually got to damage Drizzt since he has very good armour.

    There's a difference between knowing what you want to do and actually being able to do it. Getting chased down by Drizzt is not something one easily does, even for fleet footed Elves/Drow. Legolas was hardly known as exceptional amongst his people, whereas Drizzt is without peer.

    I don't think Legolas has ever missed from what I read in the books and watched in the movies. He's the best archer in Middle-Earth

    And an archer would want to keep it's distance from any enemy whether it be Drizzt or an orc. And even as Drizzts closing in on him he'll be easier to hit...the closer they are the easier to hit

    Want sure, but can is a whole different thing. Yes it's all very nice in concept to say easier, but the speed at which he'll close in aswell as not approaching in a straight line over open area isn't going to really make it that much easier.

    Just because it's not written that he's missed doesn't give any premise to him being a super archer nor is the author going to put in every miss he makes unless it's particularly significant. There is no real value as to his ability that puts him over others. Nothing that I've read of has been mentioned about that. He is just a normal elf better at archery than most.

    Anyway this arguement or whatever you want to call it looks like it is going to become redundant. I believe I finished it a few years ago.

    Drizzt has the bane of any ranged combatant, globe of darkness.

    And by the time Legolas got out of that, Drizzt would already be practically on top of him.

    Lol I thought Met has made that logic known for N ages here? And ofc it's basic knowledge that every Drizzt fans should know right from the start.
