Mordor Orc Traders are Orkish traders that can be found in Mordor Orc Camps. These quartermasters will sell supplies to allies of Mordor, and will purchase certain raw materials in return. They can easily be recognized by their distinctive outfits of Fur Armour, and the silver coins they carry in one hand.

Behaviour[edit | edit source]

Mordor Orc Traders spend most of their time wandering around the camps where they spawn, waiting for players to trade with. They will occasionally speak to allied players unprompted, offering to trade. They rarely go far from their camps, and if they aren't killed they can be found regularly around the centre of the camp.

Traders will not immediately attack enemy players or NPCs (though, naturally, they'll refuse to trade with them too). They will fight back if attacked, however, and they wield a poisoned Mordor dagger in combat.

Mordor Orc Traders, upon being killed, will drop rotten flesh, Orc Bones, and occasionally Orc Steel Ingots or Orc Draught. When a Mordor Orc Trader is killed, a floating coin will appear above the site of their death, beneath which the trader will respawn.

Trading[edit | edit source]

Mordor Orc Traders will only trade with players whose alignment with Mordor is higher than +100. Otherwise, when spoken to they will simply refuse to trade. These traders stock your typical Mordor Orkish equipment: melee weapons, bows and arrows, armour, and some rarer items such as Orc Draught and poisoned daggers. They buy the kinds of materials that go into making such items.

Upon trading with a Mordor Orc Trader, the player earns the achievement "The Black Market".
