Angmar Orc chieftains are the unit captains for Angmar. They spawn in towers.

Provided that you have at least +150 alignment to Angmar and enough silver coins (see below), you can hire various Orcish troops from them, such as Angmar Orcs (and their variants: archers, banner bearers and bombardiers), wargs, trolls and Hill-trolls.


They are non-hostile until attacked, after which they will fight back using their Orc skull staffs.


When killed, these chieftains have a chance of dropping rotten flesh (1-2), maggoty bread, and/or Orc bones.


Here is a table of the hire-able units along with their price in silver coins and Angmar alignment requirement.

Upon hiring a unit from an Angmar orc chieftain, the player earns the achievement "Hour of Vengeance".
