Black Uruk Steel Ingots are a strong black steel used by the Black Uruks of Mordor to make armour and equipment. An alloy of Durnor and Orc Steel, Black Uruk Steel is quite valuable to evil players, as gear made from this steel is among the strongest in the game.
Black Uruk steel is made by alloying Morgul Iron Ore or Orc Steel with Durnor in an Orc Forge. Morgul Iron Ore is found underground in Mordor, Dol Guldur and Angmar, while Durnor is found only in Mordor, making it easiest to acquire in Mordor. To save fuel for smelting, it is recommended to use Morgul Iron Ore rather than Orc Steel Ingots in creating this alloy.
Upon smelting a Black Uruk Steel Ingot, the player earns the achievement "Black Smithery".
As with other ingots, nine Black Uruk steel can be crafted into a storage block for compact storage or decorative purposes on the vanilla crafting table.Black Uruk Steel is primarily used in the creation of Black Uruk Armour and Equipment.
