Umbar Soldiers are the guardians of the Havens of Umbar, the backbone of Umbar's armed forces, and the best equipped Haradrim warriors in all of Haradwaith. They defend their homeland from all invaders, and stand ready to serve Sauron in his war against Gondor.
Umbar soldiers spawn throughout Umbar and the Umbar Hills. They may also be found in villages, towns, and especially fortifications.
These NPCs are well-equipped, donning tough Umbaric armour, (sometimes without the helmet), and wielding strong and hard-hitting Umbaric weaponry in combat. Be especially cautious of those weilding maces--they can deal 9-10 HP per hit! Occasionally they can be found on horseback; in this case, the horse will be found wearing Umbaric Horse Armour.
When idle, Umbar soldiers will wander around their homeland. When spoken to, they will say stuff along the lines of how Umbar is superior to their Gondorian rivals in the North, and how the true legacy of Númenor runs in Umbar not Gondor. Occasionally, they will grow suspicious of the player, suspecting that they hail from northern lands, even going so far as to threaten to "cut [them] where [they] stand", so be careful!
If they spot an enemy player or NPC, they will rush the enemy and attack with the weapon at their disposal. They will defend their position until either their enemy is slain or they themselves have drawn their last breath.
You can hire these soldiers from Umbar Captains in their strongholds. In order to hire one, the player must have a minimum of +150 alignment with Near Harad, and at least 30 silver coins. As is always the case, price drops as alignment rises.
