Angmar Orc bombardiers are Angmar Orcs equipped with bombs. They are useful for wall-breaking and pave the way for other Angmar Orcs. They are the servants and soldiers of the Dark Lord Sauron.

These bombardiers can spawn day and night in Angmar, due to ash clouds that block out the sun, similar to the environment in Mordor and Dol Guldur. This cloud also protects the Angmar Orcs from the debuffs they normally receive from the sun.

Angmar Orc bombardiers are at first equipped with an Orc bomb and an Orc torch, but once the bomb has been used they switch to an Angmar sword. If you have hired Orc bombardiers who have used up their bombs, interacting with the Orc while holding a bomb (any kind of bombs, even fire bombs!) will give him the bomb you are holding.

Behavior Edit

Angmar Orc bombardiers will attack any foes of Angmar, including all players with a negative Angmar alignment.

When they are not attempting to kill something, the Angmar Orc Bombardiers wander at random. If they do happen to get into direct sunlight, they will not be burned or be damaged by it, but will gain slowness and weakness effects similar to all other Orcs.

When not being engaged by an enemy entity there is a chance that they will start attacking each other in what is known as a skirmish. This fighting can spread and wipe out entire groups of Orcs. Skirmishes can be disabled with the command /gamerule enableOrcSkirmish false.

Killing an Angmar Orc bombardier (or any similar NPC) before he drops his bomb earns the achievement "Bring Him Down!".

Features a melee attack to finish off foes Cannot perform ranged attacks
Relatively inexpensive, considering their destructive potential Cannot ride a Warg
Can be customized depending on your resources and/or needs Weakened by sunlight
Not a suicide bomber like its Warg counterpart Will act like a normal Angmar Orc if you have no more bombs to give them
