Dagorlad (Sindarin for battle plain), is a desolate land, devoid of life, consisting of Mordor Dirt, Mordor Gravel, Barren Dirt, and Gravel. Charred Trees generate here, accompanied by the occasional boulder, but not much else. There is no food or water for a very long distance, and it is not a very good place to be. Dagorlad was the final piece of desolation caused by Sauron's Orcs when, fleeing the victory of the Last Alliance at the Black Gate, they poisoned and polluted the land. Dagorlad is bordered by Mordor to the South-east, the Brown Lands to the North, the Dead Marshes to the West and Ithilien to the South-west.
Upon entering Dagorlad, the player earns the achievement "Battle Plain".
Other than Stone Ruins, there is not one structure to break up the endless monotony of this terrible place.
The only inhabitants of Dagorlad are the soldier-Orcs of Mordor, who patrol the land to keep it free of the enemies of Sauron.
- Mordor Orc - Evil Orcs of Mordor, equipped with Mordor armour, and armed with (interchangeably) scimitars, spears, battleaxes, daggers, warscythes, or warhammers.
- Mordor Orc Archer - Mordor Orcs equipped with bows.
- Mordor Orc Bombardier- Mordor Orcs with bombs. They are very destructive, and when the bomb has been used, the bombardier will switch to a dagger.
There is no grass the in arid desert of Dagorlad as the scorched topsoil mainly consists of Mordor Dirt and Gravel, and what little dirt exists is completely barren. The land is so utterly corrupted that no fertile dirt can be found near the surface, and water is almost impossible to find. The only witnesses of the former fertility of the land are a few charred trees. Next to the Near Harad desert and the Forodwaith, Dagorlad can be considered one of the least hospitable environments of Middle-earth.
