In that dreadful light Sam stood aghast, for now, looking to his left, he could see the Tower of Cirith Ungol in all its strength. The horn that he had seen from the other side was only its topmost turret. Its eastern face stood up in three great tiers from a shelf in the mountain-wall far below; its back was to a great cliff behind, from which it jutted out in pointed bastions, one above the other, diminishing as they rose, with sheer sides of cunning masonry that looked north-east and south-east.

The Return of the King

Mordor Towers are structures generated in the Mordor biome. They are tall buildings made of Mordor Brick with multiple floors and a central spiral staircase, and are often filled with Mordor Orcs. At the very top of each tower, there is a Mordor Orc Chieftain, who will allow you to hire Mordor units. On the second-highest level there are three barrels and three Orc bombs.

Looting out these towers is the only way (with the exception of dungeons) a player with a negative Mordor alignment is able to wield the Fire of Orthanc (Orc Bombs do not drop from Orc bombardiers).

Loot Edit

There are no chests in Mordor Towers, but there are barrels of Orc Draught and three Orc Bombs, as well as a Mordor Orc Chieftain.
