Black Uruk archers are archer variants of the Black Uruks, the strongest fighting units the hosts of Mordor have to offer. They are the elite of Sauron, capable of withstanding the sun and slaughtering nearly anything that gets in their way. They can be hired from Black Uruk Captains.

SpawningEdit

Black Uruk Archers spawn exclusively in Mordor, where they can spawn day and night due to ash clouds from Mount Doom that block out the sun. They are less common than their weaker brethren, and tend to spawn in small groups. Larger concentrations of them can be found in certain fortresses.

Black Uruk Archers can also spawn as part of invasions, both for Mordor itself and for their own dedicated Black Uruk subfaction.

BehaviourEdit

Black Uruk Archers will attack any foes of Mordor on sight. As with rank-and-file Mordor Orcs, the chance of being attacked decreases the higher a player's alignment gets, and when one's alignment reaches +100 for Mordor, they will no longer be targetted.

Unlike regular Orcs, Black Uruk Archers are unable to ride Wargs, and they are not weakened by the sun. They will be just as strong during the day as they are at night, something that can't be said for lesser Orcs. Black Uruk Archers have an increased sight range of 24 blocks instead of the default 16, likely because they're taller.

Black Uruks always spawn wearing a full set of Black Uruk Armour - unlike with many other units, there is no chance for them to spawn without helmets. They carry Black Uruk Bows in combat. 

DropsEdit

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

Drop Rarity Quantity Image
Rotten Flesh Common 1-2 Rotten Flesh
Orc Draught Uncommon 1 Orc Draught
Black Uruk Steel Ingot Uncommon 1 Black Uruk Steel Ingot
Black Uruk Bow Rare 1 Black Uruk Bow
Black Uruk Helmet Rare 1 HelmetBlackUruk
Black Uruk Chestplate Rare 1 BodyBlackUruk
Black Uruk Leggings Rare 1 LegsBlackUruk
Black Uruk Boots Rare 1 BootsBlackUruk

HiringEdit

Black Uruk Archers can be hired from Black Uruk Captains, which spawn at Black Uruk Fortresses. Only players that are pledged to Mordor can hire them, and they have a starting price of 80 silver coins and require at least +450 alignment with Mordor to hire. They are some of the most effective hired units in the mod, capable of defeating most opponents in a one-on-one fight.

Advantages Disadvantages
Extremely strong - can slaughter most opponents Rather expensive
Very strong armour Cannot be mounted
Increased sight range compared to normal NPCs Require pledge to hire
Does not receive debuffs during the day Captains can be hard to find
High health
Do well against swimming players
