–-The Return of the King, Chapter XII. The Land of Shadow
Black Uruk Captain are the captains of the Black Uruks, the very fiercest of the Orcs of Mordor. They spawn only in Black Uruk Fortresses in Mordor. Players who have at least +400 Mordor alignment will be able to hire Black Uruks and Olog-Hai from them, provided they've pledged their allegiance to Mordor. These fearsome warriors are equipped with Black Uruk Armour, an Orc Skull Staff in their right hand, and a coin in their left.
Upon hiring a unit from a Black Uruk Captain, the player will earn the achievement "Legions of Lugbúrz."
Similarly to typical Black Uruks, the chance of being attacked by the Captains decreases as your alignment grows, until they stop attacking entirely once you reach 100+ alignment.
Captains spawn in the courtyard of Black Uruk Fortresses, and will wander the area. They do not seek out foes to target, but if attacked, they will fight back. When a captain dies, a coin floats in the air, signifying where he died and will eventually respawn.
The Black Uruk Captain can drop rotten flesh, orc draught, black uruk steel, and a variety of Black Uruk armour and weaponry, they also share the very small chance to drop a shiny shirt on death, as with their fellow Black Uruks.
Once reaching +400 Mordor alignment, you can hire the fearsome Black Uruks, alongside Olog-Hai, from the Captain. However, none of the units offered are able to be hired unless the player is pledged to Mordor. Note, the listed prices are the prices available at the minimum required alignment.
|Unit||Pledged Cost (Silver Coins)||Alignment (Mordor)||Requires Pledge

|Black Uruk Archer||80 ()||+700.0||Yes|
|Black Uruk Banner Bearer||80 ()||+800.0||Yes|
