"The age of Men is over. The time of the Orc has come."

Gothmog is the direct commander of the Mordor orcs. His name comes from Gothmog, Lord of all Balrogs. While the Witch-King watches the battle from afar, Gothmog responds to threats directly. Due to that he has no direct damage abilities but plays the role of a support hero. He costs 1200, and his single target damage is high enough to allow him to work semi-autonomously. At level 10 he allows Sauron to gain a level if Mollok has not already reached it.


Gothmog strngthen the line Level 1: Strengthen the Line: Gothmog reinforces a nearby orc horde with 20 temporary Black Orcs which cannot be directly controlled. They can serve both as a meat shield if used in a ocean of enemies or as damage dealers if they are used against few enemies.

Gothmog mount ability Level 2: Mount/Dismount: Gothmog mounts his Warg, whether to make a snappy escape or to simply trample enemies.

Gothmog orc captain ability Level 4: Captain of the Orcs: Gothmog sends his orcs into battle without taking their losses into consideration. Nearby orcs gain +15% damage and armor and are fearless. (Passive ability)

Gothmog release prisoners ability Level 7:Return the Prisoners: Gothmog orders the catapults to release the prisoners. Catapults have the ability to bombard the enemy with severed heads for a short time. The heads cause minimal damage but inflict fear in the hearts of those who are near to the impact site, disrupting enemy formations.

Gothmog attack order ability Level 10: Attack Order: Gothmog orders his orcs into the last charge. Nearby orcs and siege weapons gain +60% attack damage and suffer only 25% from archers and siege weapons.


No Upgrades
This hero has no upgrades. This means that this hero can not gain any sort of permanent boost from upgrades found in either its palantir or from other units/heroes. If this is not the case, fill in the section following the format of other pages.


Gothmog has very little value as a mass slayer or hero killer: he doesn't have any notable splash damage abilities or single target damage abilities, and his attack isn't splash or particularly strong. However, as a unit support hero he is invaluable, allowing orcs to gain considerable damage and armor while his final ability is a player's dream to siege a castle. However, he has a nasty habit of going to the back of the enemy's line if not properly managed and can easily get singled out.
