Three great fleets, long prepared, came up from Umbar and the Harad, and assailed the coasts of Gondor in great force; and the enemy made many landings, even as far north as the mouth of the Isen.

–Annals of the Kings and Rulers, Appendix A of The Lord of the Rings

Umbar, the land of Corsairs, is a well-populated biome similar to the vanilla "plains" biome. It is found on the western coast of Middle-earth, South of Harondor and surrounded by the Southron Coasts. Corsairs spawn here as well as the Umbarians.

Upon entering this biome one gains the achievement "City of Corsairs".

Sub-biomesEdit

Umbar HillsEdit

The Umbar hills are a much hillier version of the main biome. They make up much of the northern part of the Cape of Umbar.

Umbar ForestEdit

The Umbar forest is a sub-biome of Umbar that contains a greater concentration of trees. The Men of Umbar likely use these forests to supply materials for their great fleets. No settlements spawn here.

VariantsEdit

  • Flowers - A version of the biome with an abundance of flowers.
  • Forest - A more forested version of the biome.
  • Light forest - A lightly forested version of the biome.
  • Hills - A hillier version of the biome.
  • Forest hills - A forested version of the hill variant.
  • Oak Shrubland - Forest covered lands with a lower tree density than regular forests, but a thicker undergrowth of shrubs.
  • Orange orchard - An orchard containing orange trees.
  • Lemon orchard - An orchard containing lemon trees.
  • Lime orchard - An orchard containing lime trees.
  • Olive orchard - An orchard containing olive trees.
  • Almond orchard - An orchard containing almond trees.
  • Plum orchard - An orchard containing plum trees.

StructuresEdit

MobsEdit

ConquestEdit

Umbar can be conquered by Gondor, Near Harad and Rohan. The conquest gain rate is 0.2.

MiningEdit

All the standard ores can be found beneath Umbar, with the addition of Lapis Lazuli. Unlike in vanilla, lapis can only be found in Near Harad, albeit at the same rates and levels.

VegetationEdit

This biome is similar to the vanilla plains biome but with patches of sand generating throughout. The relatively fertile soil hosts a broad variety of trees and plants, similar to the vegetation of the nearby river fed lands of Near Harad. These include: desert oak, cedar, cypress, palm, date palm, lemon, orange, lime, olive, and plum trees, as well as Harad Flowers.
