|“||As soon as the enemy had gained possession of the eastern end of the Fords there appeared a company of men or Orc-men (evidently dispatched for the purpose), ferocious, mail-clad, and armed with axes.||”|
– The Unfinished Tales, "The Battles of the Fords of Isen".
Uruk berserkers are larger and even more fearsome versions of the Uruk-hai, standing about six-and-a-half feet tall and weighing an estimated three hundred pounds. Before they were sent into battle, it is said that the bowl of their small, tight-fitting helmet was filled with the blood of their enemy, and then pushed onto their heads. The intoxicating smell awakened a blood-lust that drove them to a battle-frenzy and made them immune to pain. Berserkers had no regard for personal safety, wore no armor except their helmets, and were expected to fight to the death.
They are the strongest Uruks to ever come out of the pits of Isengard.
Uruk Berserkers will attack any player or NPC with a negative Isengard alignment, and will do so with frightening speed and ferocity. When idle, they will wander the lands aimlessly, occasionally eating Maggoty Bread or drinking Orc Draught. When a rabbit is nearby, they will sometimes randomly become hostile towards it, killing it. They have even deeper voices than regular Uruks. As of Public Beta 26, they no longer have smoke above their heads. They are easily recognizable due to the White Hand that has been pressed onto their helmets.
These powerful units can be yours with an Isengard alignment of +300, pledge and 60 silver coins. Many people favour them as they have strong armour, health, and attack. They beat most mobs in one on one fights!
