This match is strictly a sword duel. Aragorn can’t summon any undead armies or Gandalf for that matter. Drizzt isn’t able to summon Guenhwyvar.

I’m surprised this match didn’t show up until today.
On the fence at this point, but I am leaning a bit more towards the Dark Elf’s side.
Isn’t Drizzt a supremely fast combatant, far more than Aragorn can claim? That alone would give him a very big edge.
I am inclined to agree. Not just because of the speed anklets, but also his fighting stile is more suited to go against Aragorn’s should he be using Anduril. The Drow could easily overpower the two-handed blade with Twinkle and Icingdeath which are arguably as potent as the reforged sword.
Aragorn is skilled in two-weapon combat style, though. If he is in possession of two weapons that may at least match Drizzt’s scimitars in quality, then the fight might be a bit more evenly matched.
As it stands, I think Twinkle/Icingdeath > Anduril in combat style advantage.
We know Aragon is fast enough to parry arrows, however I think that he would struggle against two blades, yes he could use his long knife to help parry, but in the end I think it would be the Drow left standing, unless Aragon simply used brute force to get a hit.
Drizzt Do’Urden would probably win this battle, and in the end, I think it’s due to Drizzt’s superior speed and his two-handed fighting style, as said above.
i think drizt has got this, he is simply to fast, and with 2 swords he has this
Close one. Drizzt’s main advantages, besides the two handed blade style, would be his ability to conjure globes of darkness as a distraction tactic and his boosted foot speed. However, Aragorn is one of the very finest of the race of men and would be no easy opponent to bring down.
AHEM, check the rules. No summoning, just a straight one on one swordfight. Kinday unfair otherwise, it would be like:
Drizzt: Ha, I summon my pet panther.
Aragorn: Lol, dat meanz I can haz ma army of undead minions? HAX!
Obviously Aragorn wouldn’t talk like that, that was just to illustrate my point. You see why it’s restricted to swordplay only now though don’t you?
Also another mistake you made, Aragorn isn’t a man, he’s the last of the Numenoreans and hence superior to any man.
He worded it funny. Drizzt’s darkness is not an actual summon, though, and it certainly does not reffer to Gwenwyvar being brought into the fight.
Drows have natural spell-like abilities. While Drizzt has lost a few, his Globe of Darkness spell has remained with him. This is no more summoning than Spider-man would have his Spider Sense triggered, Superman using Heat Vision, or Harry Potter speaking Parseltongue.
The darkness is all Drizzt there, and he uses it extremely well in combat.
“Of course, 2 are better than 1.”
Not necesarily, but it might in this case.
Save one oponent (who is extremely epic in his own right), most two-handed weapon combatants that face against Drizzt’s dual scimitars are met with an unrelenting fighting style that has them at the loosing end of the exchange.
That said, Aragorn is no slouch, and his sword is no ordinary weapon.
Can anyone (and I am looking at you, good ‘ol Sap) provide a couple good examples of Aragorn facing off against dual-wielding oponents? Preferably of elven descent or similar fighting style.
I’m gonna go with Aragorn.
Do we consider the films canon? If so there are a few examples oh him dual wielding. Otherwise none that I can think of off the top of my head. He was trained by elves so he would be used to fighting against them and as such his fighting style is more akin to the elven style than the way most humans fight.
Also I thought the admin meant no magic of any kind, just a straight swordfight. He does after all say that “this match is strictly a sword duel.” This implies no magic at all, does it not?
That may or may not be the case. I will digress until he clarifies general magic usage (Admin?…).
There is some ambiguity in the wording, though. As I read it, he is simply re-enforcing the “No Outside Help” rule by clarifying that Gwenwyvar would be categorized as such despite him technically being considered equipment.
As for Aragorn’s training with the folk of Rivendell as he grew up amongst them, that may or may not imply that he faced dual-wielding folk and should be used to the style. However, that is no actual fact to support the idea. I mean, I myself believe him to be adept at dealing with a combatant like that, but that is pure speculation on my part as I am not too familiar with the actual text that might address that issue.
We can actually assume numerous determinations from that scenario. Perhaps Aragorn never touched a two-handed sword until Anduril. Perhaps he only trained with smaller arms. Perhaps he didn’t even have an Elven instructor or sparring partner. Perhaps Elrond looked for a suitable human to mentor his “foster child”. Perhaps he didn’t even train in weapons in Rivendell and was only exposed to them when he returned to be amongst the Rangers of the North.
Perhaps there is just too much open area to speculate. Like I said before, I am just looking for actual relevant passages that may apply to the situation. Even if Aragorn is familiar with fighting against dual-wielding elven warriors, it is still highly questionable that one of them matched Drizzt in skill, and magical advantages.
Even then, we don’t even know that Aragorn IS fighting with Anduril. That was just an inherent assumption on my part at the start of the fight.
If a character can use magic (Like Drizzt and his globe of darkness), then they can use that in the fight. However, for this match only, Drizzt can not summon Guenhwyvar to assist.
I don’t believe there are many dual wielding elves in LotR, among the wood elves I believe it is more common than among those at Rivendell seeing as how they are high elves and thus use that two-handed sword or a spear/shield combo. However I am fairly sure it says somewhere that Aragorn was trained by the elves when they raised him. To be honest I don’t have the time right now to read the thousand plus pages of epicness that is the Lord of the Rings, the Simirillion and the full appendix. There are also references to Aragorn in many of Tolkien’s letters, many of which are unpublished, and some of the other novels/novellas he wrote.
Thanks for clearing that up
Understood. the information will surface eventually. In the meantime, I continue to believe that Aragorn is at a slight disadvantage in styles here.
“Also another mistake you made, Aragorn isn’t a man, he’s the last of the Numenoreans and hence superior to any man.”
I’m very well aware of Aragorn’s ancestry. Numenoreans are part of the race of men. That’s what I meant by the “very finest of the race of the men.”
I totally agree, although the added reach from Anduril may help him I still think Drizzt would win out. It would however be a long fight that would take a good few hours, maybe even extending into double digits, but the Drow’s fighting style would probably win out in the end. That is unless Aragorn managed to pull of a lucky blow or out reach Drizzt. But I’d put my bet on the Drow.
Several hours? Is Aragorn’s stamina really that great? A normal man would be down after minutes of a hard fought, extremely speedy duel.
You forget he ran for days straight when the Three Hunters (Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas) were pursuing the Uruks and Orcs who took Peregrin Took and Meriadoc Brandybuck hostage after the fight at Amon Hen. So after attempting to climb a mountain, fighting through Moria, then fleeing the Balrog, rowing down a river then fighting off a huge number of Uruk-Hai he was still able to run for multiple days straight with only a nights rest in Lothlorien. Another example is right after the battle of Pelennor Fields he led his army to the Black Gate of Mordor. So the answer is yes, he does have enough stamina to fight for hours on end.
I’m not questioning it in that sense. It’s more like your effectiveness drops when you’re tired. Can he keep up the skill needed to fight the Drow for that long?
Strong and Brutal is not a good way to fight against Drizzt. If you’ve read the books he easily takes down Two-Handed weapon wielders. Aragorn will have to use all his wits and experience and it will be a very close battle. However, reading about Drizzt and all the things he has done makes me think that the Drow will end up being the winner.
What sort of feats of stamina and endurance has the Drow committed that you think he can easily out last Aragorn? Or rather makes you think that Aragorn cannot keep up with him for a fair while?
But if the movie is correct aragon is quite adept to two weapon fighting style when he fought against the wraight kings . i think he will be better against dritzz using a longsword or bastard sword on one hand and a short sword in the other hand. and i guess that make sense since most melee ranger are skirmisher and those prefer 2 weapon than 2 handed fighting ……infact the only time he use a 2 handed weapon is when he got that magical 2 handed sword
Generally speaking, rangers across the realms of fantasy are considered to be adept dual-wielders. Tolkien is the father of the genre, and most of today’s products in that area emulate something from his stories. Seeing as Aragorn joined his people of the Dunedain of the North, and was known across the entirety of Middle-Earth as the Ranger, Strider, one would assume that he is adept at dual-wielding as well.
Now, that doesn’t mean that our assumptions would necesarily translate to fact. All I have been able to find on the Dunedain Exiles of the North in terms of preffered weapons and tactics is that they favored the sword, spear, and the bow. I have yet to find a clear passage to dual-wielding being an accepted and practiced fighting style amongst them.
Seeing as the movies are not canon, they are only interpretations from Tolkien’s work made by Jackson and his team whom are heavily influenced in turn by today’s take on the genre, I wouldn’t simply accept what happened on screen as a solid source of debate.
I am not the best researcher in the world, nor am I the better versed Tolkien sage. This is why I am requesting actual passages and/or relevant reference that might shed light on the issue at hand. Without that information, the balance is tipped towards the Drow’s favor. At least in my mind.
“What sort of feats of stamina and endurance has the Drow committed that you think he can easily out last Aragorn? Or rather makes you think that Aragorn cannot keep up with him for a fair while?”
Kepp up a fair while is one thing, several hours is something else. And I’ve seen nothing of the Drow. In fact, I haven’t chacked out anything in his series, it’s just that pretty much everyone regarding Drizzt seems to think stamina is almost a non-issue for him. Of course, if a Drizzt fan here proves otherwise, i’m not going to contest that.
I’ll have to look into the more predominant stamina feats. As a general effect of Drizzt’s efficiency, most encounters are dispatched with fair ease.
There might be a be more references of him performing more impressive stamina feats during his time in Melea Magthere and subsequently in the Underdark exile, than his time spent on the surface world since.
Will get back to you.
im still not entirely sure about all of drizzt’s abilities, but i do seem to recall him being said to be stronger than lich king arthas in one of my posts, so i say he does (in a non-canon way) have skill in fighting 2H opponents. but then he had all his powers, so in a one on one, idk.
Unfortunately my collection of Tolkien is a couple of hundred miles away so I can’t provide references. However as it is fair to assume Aragorn can engage multiple enemies at once, as he does on several occasions in the books then it’s probably fair to say that he could keep track of Drizzt’s blades. However in the book I believe it makes reference to him carrying a long knife although I can’t recall if it ever mentions him wielding it along side his blade. My recollection is a bit fuzzy, I’m going to wait and see if anyone can provide a reference.
aragorn is good and may have been trained by elves, but not match for drizzt, he is a born and bred swordsman whos father was said to be the best swordmaster in Menzorenbanzan ( speeling) except for maybe Jarxle, drizzts has spent his life fighting and winning, where aragorn has sopent his life rangering,
please excuse the spelling in the last post, am at work trying to post on hear in secret,
Drizzt outfights Obould, who wields a two-handed sword which he can light on fire at will, easily, after Obould has been gifted with the strength and speed of a god. Aragorn, while ridiculously cool, stands no chance. Plus, the drow is a drow.
Drizzt has the edge of being much faster than Aragorn, while Aragorn is very cool, Drizzt’s twin sword style would be too fast for Aragorn to take. Drizzt wins
Or Aragorn could be cheap and use his hunting bow to put an arrow through Drizzt’s heart.
How strong is the Drow compared to Aragorn?
A match-up between Two-handed weapons and dual wielded weapons is never a long fight. Either the Dual-wielder tries to block the two-hander attack, fails and is cut down suddenly due to having their wrists shattered with the impact, or they block successfully and send a lightning-quick attack through the jugular of their foe.
There are exceptions, men of immense strength who can use a two handed weapon in one hand with a shield (Ajax The Greater of Troy was said to be one of these men) or who wield a Two-hander with such speed that even if you manage to parry they’ll be able to strike again before you’ve managed to attempt a follow-up strike (Druss the Legend would be such a man)
Aragorn, while damn good, wasn’t a Two-handed powerhouse, he was a skillful dual-wielder and inspirational leader (and, indeed, a ranger of no small repute), and I’m pretty sure that the Drows got him beat if they fight on even footing.
This is a pretty good fight. Two very great rangers, two bad-@ss characters who are among my favorite of all time.
But Aragorn will die.
Just because I give the victory to Drizzt, doesn’t mean I dislike Aragorn. You just have to go with the facts.
Here’s why I believe Drizzt will wipe the floor with Aragorn.
1. Drizzt wields two weapons to Aragorns one. In addition, Narsil is a large two-handed blade, and thus slower than an average longsword, no matter how good Aragorn is. Aragorn is seriously going to have a hard time parrying Drizzt furious, dizzying strikes. Now, some people think that If Aragorn were to equip a second weapon and was to dual wield that he could more effectively block Drizzt’s strikes. This is surely NOT the case because if he were two use two weapons at once, he’d be even worse off. Why? Narsil is a TWO-HANDED SWORD, it’s going to be even more slow and awkward if Aragorn tries to hold it in ONE hand. If he even has enough strength to use it with one hand. Furthermore, Drizzt is vastly more skilled in dual wielding two weapons simultaneously. When Aragorn equips two weapons, he
surrenders his best assest in this fight: his fighting style. Aragorns style is using the large blade to inflict his stronger hits, which gives him a better chance against Drizzt.
2. Drizzt is way faster. Without his magic anklets, he is simply an exceptionally fast and agile melee fighter. But WITH his anklets, he is much, much more than that. The bracers increase his speed significantly on top of his already impressive quickness. Aragorn’s movements just won’t compare. There’s not really anything in lotr that moves like Drizzt. Aragorn’s a bit spoiled, all he’s been fighting are clumsy orcs and skeletons, things Drizzt is too good to fight anymore.
3. Globes of Darkness, Plain and simple. I’d really like to see Aragorn try to fight blind, while Drizzt is trained to fight blind. In a fight where Aragorn is already strained, not being able to see for a few moments (in the least) is a serious problem.
4. Drizzt is more skilled at stealth and forestry. He’s been a ranger for longer than Aragorn has been breathing. He was trained in the art of stealth by the drow in the underdark, and has been using stealth even longer than he has been a ranger. Not to mention Drizzt can see better in the dark than Aragorn. Additionally, Drizzt is more perceptive with his keen sight. If the fight is broken off and becomes a cat and mouse game, Drizzt will easily backstab Aragorn.
5. Drizzt has been fighting for longer than Aragorn. I just don’t understand how anybody can think a Drow who has double the combat experience of a human will lose in a fight against him.
6. Drizzt equals Aragorn in strength, if he is not superior. Drizzt took off the head of a stone basilisk with WOODEN POLES. When it comes to physical traits, Drizzt is like Aragorn but more improved.
I may think of more but thats it for now. PEACE!
Alright to tell you the truth, both of them are VERY good combatants, but I do think Drizzt has the upper hand because since he is a dark elf he can move somewhat faster than Aragorn and has more combat experience. Not to mention Drizzt is very fast with his scimitars. All it would take is one fast Duel-Weapon sweep…
well aragorns bow can’t be used because its non cannon, the only othe thing i can think of to help aragorn is his older, 1 handed blade, also, could he prehaps get a lucky dagger throw in to dazz- somthing?
People keep forgetting size in this. Drizzt ain’t that big. Aragorn is about 6’6″, with a monster sword that he can throw a lot of oomph behind. Drizzt is actually at a disadvantage, dual-wielding versus single sword, simply because he can’t put his hand on the back of one scimitar to try to match strength.
Another point: Drizzt’s experience means nada. Entreri is his acknowledged equal, and Entreri is about 40-50 years younger than Aragorn. He’s remained Drizzt’s equal even after basically not practicing at all for a while. Basically, Drizzt is on a bit of a plateau. Aragorn, for his part, seems to excel in the art of the blade against older opponents. There’s an implication at least in FotR that he could have handled a few of the Nazgul by himself, which is quite an achievement against 2000-year-old undead wraiths.
Also, remember…Drizzt hasn’t spent his whole life a ranger, only the last twenty-five years of it or so. Aragorn is actually more experienced in surface maneuvering and tactics. He’s been hunted and attacked at least as much as Drizzt, we can assume, and he appears to have done it, for the most part, on his own. No band of plucky comrades, no mystical jungle cat. Just one dude with a sword, alone in the wilds against all the goblins, trolls, orcs, and what-have-yous in Middle Earth.
That’s even putting aside his Numenorean abilities, which are (as per Tolkien usual) mysterious but not necessarily weak.
Yeah, tbh, I’d have to give this one to Aragorn, in a straight fight. Quite apart from the stats, he just strikes me as smarter than Drizzt, more capable, and more dangerous.
The dynamic does change if Guenhwyvar is in the picture, though, I’ll admit that. I don’t doubt Aragorn could deal with a panther without much trouble, but I doubt he could do it while fending off lightning-quick scimitars.
On the other hand, if Aragorn can use his “Call In Army of Ghosts” power…xD, just kidding.
after considering this for hours, i have to put aragorn ahead by a small margin. it would be hard fought and epic beyond belief.
yes aragorn is much larger and stronger than drizzt, but drizzt doesnt have to block his attacks directly. he could parry, or simply dodge. also for blocking, he can block a swing of aegis-fang from wulfgar, a man whos even bigger than aragorn, and certainly far stronger than him. i doubt that aragorn has ever overpowered a giant that has a club with his bare hands. drizzt undoubtedly has the advantage here, im not an expert on the lotr series, but the opponents aragorn fights never bother to dodge, they attack, get blocked, get stabbed/slashed, and die. drizzt has fought against skilled opponents like atremis entreri and won. also, if aragorn were to throw his knife, it would get blocked. while busy fighting two skilled opponents, drizzt has blocked 5 rapid fire dagger throws from jarlaxle. drizzt clearly wins against aragorn.
Aragorn simply no argument. Narsil/Andúril was forged by Telchar the same smith that made the dagger that cut a Simaril from the crown of the most powerful “God” (Valar) in all of LoTR mythology. The sword while it didn’t sparkle, was incredibly powerful, enough to be able to wound, and even destroy (inasmuch as they could be) Nazgúl.
Númenóreans (and to a lesser extent the Dúnedain) were incredibly powerful, Ar-Pharazôn the last king of Númenór actually defeated Sauron in single combat. Aragorn had immense power. The fact that Tolkien did not belabor the point doesn’t diminish the fact that as stated, he survived in the wilds of Arnor, and elsewhere alone.
Drizzt is a powerful warrior to be sure, however he is for all intents and purposes in a completely different category. In a straight fight, there is no question in my mind.
As to the practicality of swordplay. Drizzt dual wields relatively short blades, he himself is slight. While tight and strong for his build, he is smaller, and at a severe reach disadvantage. Aragorn is preternaturally swift as well, this is alluded to in the books, as he is able to run for days at a time without tiring, able to leap large distances, as well as wade into multiple foes with ease. Which implies that he is at least close to Drizzt in speed. That said, a good large man, will always beat a good small one, period. I know people like to think that isn’t so, but if you have two people of relatively equal skill, the bigger, stronger and more vigorous will win. Drizzt is outweighed, weaker, and at a severe height/reach disadvantage against a foe that is similarly skilled, and is armed with a FAR superior weapon in craftsmanship and power.
I love Drizzt man, but this is simply no contest.
If elves taught Aragon his swordsmanship, and Drizzt can defend against 3 elves while dispensing another, what ‘s the arguement here ?
Drizzt would win, Aragon is a pussy.
There is the canon Drizzt stats. He is ok, but by no means amazingly powerful. New 4E stats are coming soon.
basically, R.A. Salvatore is a writing hack, that regurgitates the same bullshit story of a super drow that cannot be beaten, except when he is, then he just makes friends with the people that beat him, or runs away.
Whereas Tolkien solidified the entire genre of fantasy fiction, and laid the groundwork for its rise to popularity with a series of books that have been named some of the greatest works of the English language.
So, if Drizzt did win, it would be kind of like punching a millionaire genius brain surgeon with a Ph.D and a 17 inch cock. Yeah, you hit his face, but.. at the end of the day he is just better than you.
This is entirely assuming Drizzt is in his Sentient form. If he resumed the state of mind of the hunter, then there would be no fight. In the hunter form, he managed to stay alive for 15 -20 years in the underdark which is generally know as the worst place to ever be alone. If he is not in the form of the hunter, then it would be a closer, yet still drizzt sided fight. As stated earlier, “Drizzt outfights Obould, who wields a two-handed sword which he can light on fire at will, easily, after Obould has been gifted with the strength and speed of a god.” It is clear from this that he is easily capable of fighting against two handed swordsmanship. Drizzt has immense speed, stamina, and an impressive amount of strength. Aragorn, while a fully capable swordsman in himself, could not keep up with or last as long as the drow. Drizzt has drow magic, which is also a tremendous advantage. Drizzt trains completely on his senses of combat, which could make combat in a drow sphere of darkness entirely possible. And stature is not a problem. Oubold was almost 8ft, Wulfgar, who drizzt has dispatched easily, is 7’6″ or so. Aragorn’s 6’6″ height is not a disadvantage at all for drizzt, who fights in a multi-tierd form of dual wielding. Unfortunately, for Tolkien fans at least, Drizzt would be the winner. And above commenter, get a clue. The author has nothing to do with this, and Salvatore is an awesome writer as it is.
ive read books from both series and have read a bunch of the posts on here. here are some things that i know about them:
fights with 2 scimitars. twinkle, which is a more defensive sword, and icingdeath, which is an ice-based blade.
he is a ranger, rogue and a drow…. aka a dark ELF.
has fought with many opponents, great-swords to daggers and most things in between.
he has run through the troolmore (however that is spelled) with his friends, him in the lead, for a week of constant fighting.
yes, he is a drow, but that also means that he is smaller and usually, with smaller characters, have greater control of their bodies.
has the alternate personality of the Hunter.
-the Hunter is basically a version of Drizzet that is all reflex and no conscious thought.
he has anklets that increase his movement speed.
he has tamureal (think i spelled it right) which automatically targets hearts with an infinite quiver (infinite things are removed from this sort of thing, but if you check his equipment, it is basically an infinite use quiver).
here you are talking about him with his great-sword.
he is a ranger.
uses a bow, this bow is not a heart seeker.
while it is possible to use both a dagger and a greatsword in dual weapons, this is not feasible. a greatsword is about 30+ lbs. and greatswords are about 4 feet long at the shortest.
he has run for several days, but that is movie magic, no human, and i mean that- is supported by medical reports- can RUN FOR 3 DAYS STRAIGHT. i care not what you say against that, it has been proven time and again. on the other hand, running and JOGGING in intervals is possible for long periods of time, like 1 day straight, then sleep for several hours.
Drizzt would win, but it would be close. if you had read one of the fights between Drizzt and Oubold, Drizzt _has_ blocked one of Oulbolds greatsword attacks, the result of is that his arm went numb for several minutes.
Aragorn is fast and has some endurance going for him, but the minute this is turned into a hide-and-seek challenge, Drizzt wins.
“This match is strictly a sword duel.”
if Aragorn pulls a bow, he loses. same goes for Drizzt. this means that it would be a straight fight.
“natural abilities are allowed”
this to me means that Drizzt can BLIND Aragorn, and that he can also use his infrared sight to see Aragorn in the darkness.
time is a factor as much as anything else. both get tired, both weaken and slow. both have fought multiple opponents at one time, both have fought others similar to their current opponent. Drizzt more often than Aragorn.
battle would last several hours at the most.
Drizzt would have the basic advantage, and with greatswords, there are fewer fancy attacks that you can use, Drizzt would prevail, but that does not mean that he will win straight off. brute force would slightly even the fight, but with that comes exhaustion. Aragorn does _not_ have enough strength and endurance to last the length of time needed to defeat Drizzt.
take this as you will. this is my view on the matter.
if drizzt gets into the mode of “the hunter” which helped him survive in the underdark by himself, which no-one, not even his sire, an equal blade master, would have dared to have done, then aragorn is toast. the hunter mode helped drizzt take down entire camps of orcs by himself.
few corrections taulmaril “the heartseeker”
it doesnt actually automatically hit the target in the heart, it was just called heartseeker.
also I believe this fight would go to drizzt no question, drizzt has taken out more impressive fighters than aragorn many times. not to mention his stealth,
I am not as familiar with Drizzt as Aragorn, but I would go with Aragorn. From what I’ve read, I think Aragorn wins out in terms of sheer badassery. That is, while Drizzt may have the speed and technical skill (not to dock Aragorn’s impressive skill), Aragorn is good at winning. He has determination and spirit and while he may not have ever really faced a dual wielder, I think he would take the Drow by surprise. I see Drizzt getting a little overconfident, and Aragorn winning out in the end.
hmmm. after reading up some more on Drizzt, I realize I may have underestimated him. I think I’ll stick by my guns with Aragorn though.
This thread SHOULD NOT have died…. Medic!?
Im with Drizzt on this for the same reasons stated previously but i also agree Aragorn is not going to give Drizzt any kind of a stomp match.
@post 21: Actually, they spent a month in Lothlorien. So, the feat is lessened, but not insignificant.
And there are also people with genetic mutations who can run forever until they literally die from not having enough energy to move. Their muscles never tire.
the fact that Drizzt uses two blades already gives him an advantage over aragorn not to mention the fact that Drizzt is twice Aragorns age and has far much more experience as both a ranger and sword fighter. in my opinion drizzt would win every time.
The globe of darkness seals this, Aragorn has never shown aptitude for a blind fight and Drizzt has the ability in spades. Aragorn would put up a good fight but eventually drizzt would capitalize on an opening in the 2handed style. If Drizzt doesnt bring his magical gear Aragorn has a 30-40% chance to take the Drow in an early rush. the longer a battle drags on though Drizzt’s vast experience will disassemble the guy. With Speed anklets, Aragorn can’t touch Drizzt save for the good old fashioned lucky blow
