The Morwaith Chieftain is an NPC of the Far Harad Savannah that leads the Morwaith into battle, bearing the symbol of the tribe, the lion.

They wear Morwaith chieftain armour and wield Morwaith axes.

Upon hiring a unit from a Morwaith chieftain, the player earns the achievement "Strength of the Tribe."


These chieftains naturally reside in Morwaith chieftains huts, which are found in Morwaith villages. Each chieftain hut spawns one chieftain.  


Similar to most NPCs that allow you to hire units from them, Morwaith chieftains will not attack any other player or NPC unless provoked, in which case they will of course defend themselves.

Morwaith chieftains will typically stay inside or within the near vicinity of their huts.

Unit Hiring[]

Morwaith units can be hired from Morwaith chieftains, provided that the player has enough alignment with the Morwaith faction and enough silver coins to purchase them.

The player may also buy a warhorn from the chieftains if he/she has +1500 alignment and 2000 silver coins.
