The Lord of the Rings Minecraft Mod Wiki

Dol Guldur Orcs are the Orcs of Dol Guldur, a place of evil in southern Mirkwood previously ruled by the Necromancer. These Orcs are similar to many of the other Orc races in the Mod and will spawn carrying Dol Guldur equipment and wearing Dol Guldur armour

The Orcs of Dol Guldur were the fifth Orc race to be added to the Mod, after Mordor Orcs, Uruks, Angmar Orcs, and Gundabad Orcs.


Dol Guldur Orcs can spawn throughout Dol Guldur regardless of light levels or time of day. This makes the biome particularly dangerous for good-aligned players. Sometimes, a Dol Guldur Orc will spawn riding a Mirkwood spider. Like most Orcs, they are affected by debuffs during the day.

They will not spawn anywhere else throughout Mirkwood, apart from the Mountains of Mirkwood, unlike the Mirkwood spiders, but they can spawn during invasions in the Woodland Realm .


Weapons carried by Dol Guldur Orcs include:


Like other Orcs, Dol Guldur Orcs will attack enemies of Dol Guldur on sight. They are weakened in sunlight. They also, like Gundabad Orcs, flee from players with an alignment of -500 or lower, until attacked by that player or they have spawned in an invasion in which they will attack the player as per usual.

Dol Guldur Orcs can engage in Orc skirmishes.

They are often very rude in their speech to those not strongly allied with them, much like their other Orc-brethren.


Dol Guldur Orcs commonly drop Orc bones, rotten flesh, and more rarely can drop maggoty bread, Orc draughts, Orc Steel ingots, and pouches. As with all other NPCs in the Mod, they may sometimes drop some of the equipment they are carrying.

Dol Guldur Orcs may be hired starting at 20 coins from Dol Guldur Orc chieftains. You must also have +150 Dol Guldur alignment to hire these units. As always, as one's Dol Guldur alignment increases, the price decreases accordingly.

Advantages Disadvantages
Very cheap. Can only be hired in Dol Guldur, a relatively far away, small realm.
Decent armour of iron strength. Weakened by daylight.
Relatively low alignment requirement
