Black Uruk archers are uncommon Orcs that spawn in Mordor. They are the elite archers of Mordor and use their factions bows and are shod in Black Uruk armour.


Black Uruk archers can spawn anywhere Black Uruks spawn. Additionally, they will also sometimes pop up when Mordor invades one of the many lands surrounding it.


Black Uruk archers will ignore any player with Mordor alignment of 0 or higher. But if a player or NPC not allied with Sauron approaches them, they will attack, keeping their distance from their foe, in the same way that most of the Mod's ranged units fight. When fighting them keep in mind that they are much stronger than a regular archer.

Drops Edit

Black Uruks commonly drop rotten flesh and also have a few rare drop possibilities such as Black Uruk steel ingots and Orc draughts. Additionally to these, they have a moderate chance to drop some of the equipment or armour they are carrying.

These powerful units can be yours to command with a Mordor alignment of +450 and 80 silver coins. Many people favour them as they have strong armour health and attack and they beat most mobs in one on one fights!

Advantages Disadvantages
High health compared to most NPCs Rather expensive
Are not weakened in daylight Don't spawn mounted
Strong armour equivalent to Dwarven armours protection wise
Do well against swimming units
Often deter enemy players
Increased sight range compared to most NPCs
