There is no difference between a warmonger and a rabid dog!

You have enemies? That means you stood up for something in your life.

The Warmonger's Playstyle is a way to play the mod, in which you get negative alignment with all factions. This way to play the mod is recommended for people who want to make traveling around Middle-earth harder, and for those who are good at PvE.

How?[edit | edit source]

Once you start out in Middle-earth, you will want to get at least +1000 alignment with good or evil. You should go about this by only accepting killing quests, or killing enemies. In short, only get this alignment by killing! Now, why would you want this alignment? Well, once you amass a large amount of alignment, and you kill a mob part of that faction, you will lose (at max) -50 alignment with that faction, but only gain +1 with its enemies. So, after gaining the alignment, you will want to go berserk and kill every mob in sight of that faction. After you go through this process with all the factions you are aligned positively aligned with, you should have negative with all factions.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

  • You will need to have weapons and armor on you at all times, taking up inventory space.
  • You will never truly be safe from harm, as all factions wills see you as a target.
  • You won't be able to hire units, which will make traveling all the more harder.
  • Money will be utterly useless (oddment collectors excepted).
  • Getting achievements will ultimately be harder.
  • You will not be able to use faction crafting tables.
  • You will need to be very good at PvE, mainly for losing alignment with Fangorn.
  • Utumno will be extremely hard, due to the fact you can't bring warhorns or units.

Advantages[edit | edit source]

  • Hone you PvE skills against all factions, making you better at PvE in general.
  • Helps you to survive without units, or special items from traders (oddment collectors excepted).
  • Trains you to make your senses keen and to keep your guard up.

Should I Do This On Servers?[edit | edit source]

Playing this way on servers is not recommended, as you will be expected to participate in wars, and this may be impossible, as you will be attacked by soldiers on both sides. In addition to that, you will have to worry about being attacked by players, not just NPC's. On role-play servers, you could get in trouble, as a Gondorian is expected to be aligned with Gondor. Likewise, a Mordor orc should have a good reputation for killing all those Rohirrim.

In conclusion...[edit | edit source]

  • This style is for those who are incredibly good at PvE, and are seasoned war veterans.
  • It has more disadvantages than advantages.
  • Not recommended on servers.
  • Never play this way.
