The Lord of the Rings Minecraft Mod Wiki

The Mordor Orc Commander is a captain that spawns at the top of towers. They will allow you to hire Mordor orcs if you have at least +150 Mordor alignment. They are equipped with Mordor armour, and hold an Orc Skull Staff in their right hand and a silver coin in their left.

Upon hiring a unit from a Mordor Orc Commander, the player earns the achievement "To War!"


As with Mordor Orcs, the chance of being attacked by their commanders decreases the higher your alignment gets. When your alignment reaches +100 for Mordor, they will no longer target you.

The commanders spawn at the top of towers. They do not seek out foes to target, but if attacked, they will fight back. They will wander around the tower, sometimes falling off the top and killing themselves by accident. When a commander dies, a coin floats in the air, signifying where he died and will eventually respawn. 


The commanders may drop orc bones, orc steel ingots, rotten flesh, maggoty bread, and rarely, a piece of their armour upon death.
