Mordor is a highly versatile and unique nation. They have more units than any other faction with a larger selection of buildings than any other faction. Mordor has weak, cheap, early game units and powerful, expensive late game units. Mordor also ties with the Men of the West for having the most heroes.
This guide will cover the units, buildings and powers that are available to Mordor in 1.06. It will also have some tips on microing orc warriors, and will have an early, middle and late game guide added on later.
The hotkey to select the upgrade option on all buildings is U. All buildings have their health boosted each time you upgrade them to ahigher level.
Standard Troop Production Buildings:
Mordor's cheap unit barracks.
Mordor's cheap swordsmen unit.
Mordor's cheap archer unit.
Mordor's expensive unit barracks.
Mordor's only pikemen unit.
Mordor's elite archer unit.
The Mountain Troll is a versatile unit that can act as a cavalry or a siege unit.
This unit has area damage like all trolls and provides a leadership bonus to nearby troops.
Mordor's strongest non-hero unit. This expensive troll attacks with a club and will decimate all before it. Just watch out for archers and high level heroes.
Mordor's siege factory.
Very effective against any structure. Highly resistant to arrows, yet highly vulnerable to all else.
The catapult has two modes of fire. It can fire flaming shots or skulls which generate fear.
Siege Tower (I remembered this uniot last minute. I will flesh it out in my next update)
This unit can only be made on maps with fortress walls e.g. Helm's Deep, Minas Tirith.
Mumakil with Haradrim Lancers
Think ginat war elephant that tramples all in its path.
Mordor's upgrade building and third barracks.
Corsairs of Umbar
A swordsmen unit that has great siege attack.
Resource Production Buildings:
When resource production buildings hit level 3 they acquire a defensive arrow tower.
The standard resource building that generates resources based upon available terrain. You can sacrifice Orc Laborers, Orc Warriors and Orc Archers for resources by selecting them then right clicking on the slaughterhouse. Orc laborers give 1 Resource each, Orc Warriors give 2 Resource each and Orc Archers give 8 Resources each.
