Isengard Snaga are lesser Orcs of the Isengard faction. They are almost identical to Gundabad Orcs, having the same amount of health and also using varied armour instead of complete armour sets. The only main difference is where they spawn, and the fact that they may come equipped with Uruk equipment, which Gundabad orcs don't spawn with (instead they may be equipped with Gundabad Uruk equipment).

Etymology Edit

The word Snaga refers to lesser 'slave' Orcs, in contrast to larger and stronger Uruks specifically bred for battle.


Isengard Snaga can be found using various weapons and tools, they also may wear a variety of different armour and weapons. Possible armour they may wear and equipment groups they can use are listed below:


Weapons and Tools

Behaviour Edit

Similarily to other Orcs, Snaga will gain slowness and weakness effects in direct sunlight. They are the least powerful unit of the Isengard faction but the largest in quantity, due to the fact that they spawn regularly throughout Nan Curunír, during night and can also be found mounted on a Warg.

These Orcs will attack any player posessing negative alignment with the Isengard faction, as well as any other units of opposing factions. Similarly to other Orcs, Snaga can also become involved in skirmishes, this involves, when two Orcs may begin to fight each other.

Isengard Snaga will also flee from you if you move toward them when your alignment is negative five-hundred or lower. However, they shall proceed to attack the player, if disturbed or attacked. They are often quite rude in their speech, even to allies, similarly to others of Orc kind.

Spawning Edit

Isengard Snaga spawn in all biomes where the Isengard faction is present, these being Nan Curunír, Rohan Uruk Highlands and Fangorn wasteland. They will also spawn as a part of Isengard invasions.

Hiring Edit

Isengard Snaga, can be your minions from the starting price of twenty silver coins and require positive one-hundred fifty alignment to be hired from an Uruk chieftain. Like all hireable mobs, they become cheaper as the player's alignment with the faction increases.

Advantages Disadvantages
Cheap More expensive than their equal, Gundabad Orcs
Can be mounted on Wargs Weapons vary greatly, therefore their attack strength also varies greatly
Can be hired in Nan Curunír, which is not too far away from the Shire They can have good armour or very bad armour
Because of cheapness, can be hired in mass amounts, which can be very effective Weakened in daylight


On rare occasion, they may also drop a piece of their armour or equipment.
