The Dol Guldur Orc Archer is a type of Orc that spawns in the Dol Guldur biome. They are similar to Dol Guldur Orcs in that they wear Dol Guldur armour and you can hire them from a Dol Guldur Orc Chieftain. Instead of using Dol Guldur equipment however, the Dol Guldur Orc archer's only weapon is the Orc bow. These archers will attack any of the foes of Dol Guldur in sight.

The spawning mechanics for this type of Orc archer is the same as that of the Dol Guldur Orc. They may also spawn riding a Mirkwood spider. These mobs are called Spider Archer Riders, and can also be hired. These orcs are loyal to Khamûl under Sauron.


Dol Guldur Orc archers can be hired from Dol Guldur Orc chieftains for 20-40 ( 20  to  40 ) silver coins, provided that you have +200 Dol Guldur alignment. Spider archer riders cost 30-60 ( 30  to  60 ) silver coins and the player must be at +300 alignment or above. As always, the price decreases as the alignment increases. 

Advantages Disadvantages
Rather cheap both cost and alignment wise Weakened in daylight
Works well against swimming enemies Can only be hired in Dol Guldur, a far away and small realm
Decent armour of iron strength


Just like Dol Guldur Orcs, Dol Guldur Orc archers will often drop Orc bones and rotten flesh. They may also drop maggoty bread, Orc draught, Orc steel ingots, pouches, their bow, or a piece of their armour.
