The Lord of the Rings Minecraft Mod Wiki

The Dunlending warlord is a unit hiring trader for the Dunland faction. They are found in hill forts in the Dunland biome, and are easily recognizable by their fur hoods and Dunlending armour. You can hire different Dunlending troops from them.

These traders are good news for evil players, as the Dunlending troops are quite cheap compared to Orcs or Uruks. While these units may not last very long, you can always hire more at the same price, and hiring a large number of them can help prevent deaths. Additionally, players with higher Dunland alignment can hire more powerful berserkers. Trying to find warlords is not a good strategy for good players hoping to get their alignment up, as their forts may hard to reach due to the frequent spawning of Dunlendings in Dunland - unless you have a powerful army behind your back.


Dunlending warlords will stay in their hill fort, unless attacked or pushed by a player. They will not attack players unless provoked. Warlords will refuse to allow you to hire units until you have a Dunlending alignment of +100.

Upon hiring a unit from a Dunlending warlord, the player earns the achievement "We Fight for You!"
