"Across the narrow valley, now almost level with his eyes, the walls of the evil city stood, and its cavernous gate, shaped like an open mouth with gleaming teeth, was gaping wide. And out of the gate an army came. All that host was clad in sable, dark as the night. Against the wan walls and the luminous pavement of the road Frodo could see them, small black figures in rank upon rank, marching swiftly and silently, passing outwards in an endless stream. "
The Two Towers

The free Morgul Orc Warriors, a unit of Mordor, come from the Tower of Dark Sorcery and have been heavily armored and rendered resistant to fear. They can only be trained at the Minas Morgul Outpost once it has been purchased for 2500. They are a late game substitute of the free Mordor orc warriors, but they cannot be mass produced at the same speed due to the limitations caused by the number of outposts on a map. Even though they are more resistant to damage due to their increased armor and also more effective thanks to the fearless status, making them more resistant to Unit Interferer Heroes, they are still weak to Mass Slayer Heroes.

A Morgul Orc Warrior has a base health of 360, and there are 20 of them per battalion.

Orc overseer upgrade.png Orc Overseer - If paired with an orc overseer this battalion will gain +50% damage and +25% armor and the ability Crack the Whip


The Morgul Orc Warriors are simply an upgraded version of the standard Orc Warriors, and can therefore can be better utilized. However, they are present on a short supply since they are limited by the number of outposts. If joined with standard Orc Warriors they can prove to be very deadly. Apart from that the advice stays the same, during the extreme-late game stage they can be paired with the other Morgul units and overseers to form a deadly force once well micro-managed. They are still on the same level as Orc Warriors, they just have slightly better stats, therefore having the same weaknesses (apart from fear) and the same strength in their numbers.
