The Lord of the Rings Minecraft Mod Wiki

A huge orc-chieftain, almost man-high, clad in black mail from head to foot, leaped into the chamber; behind him his followers clustered in the doorway. His broad flat face was swart, his eyes were like coals, and his tongue was red; he wielded a great spear.

Gundabad Orc Chieftains are a type of Gundabad Uruk from which you may hire Gundabad Orcs.


Gundabad Orc Chieftains can be found in Gundabad Orc Camps and Taken Dwarven Towers. Camps can be found in Eriador and parts of Rhovanion, towers can also be found in the misty mountains; this is the only place where they spawn.

Unlike most other Gundabad Orcs, they'll wear Gundabad Uruk Armour, without the helm.


Like all trading and hiring NPCs, Gundabad chieftains will not attack another mob or NPC unless provoked. Once provoked, they will defend themselves with their Orc Skull Staff.


Gundabad Orcs and Gundabad Wargs may be hired from these chieftains if the player has the required alignment and silver coins.

Upon hiring a unit from a Gundabad Orc chieftain, the player earns the achievement "Rabble Rouser"
