Middle-earth: Shadow of War

Cheat Codes:
Submitted by: David K.

All Ithildin Door Poems:
Use the following solutions to solve all five Ithildin Door Poems and get the 
Bright Lord's Legendary Set. You must find six Ithildin collectibles per region,
return to the Ithildin Door, and fill the blanks in the poem. The Ithildin Door 
locations are marked on the map. When you hover over the icon, you can see white 
outlines on the map showing you the entrance to the tomb. 

Place a marker where the white outlines end to locate the entrance more easily. 
To get the six Ithildins to appear on the map, you must purify all Headir Towers 
in the region. There are always six Ithildins and one door per region. 

There are five total regions. Behind each do:

-=Midas Morgul Poem=-
* Shadows
* Drums
* Cadence
* Land
* Wrath
* Doom
-=Cirith Ungol Poem=-
* Rises
* Fires
* Night
* Beacons
* Shines
* Marching
-=Gorgoroth Poem=-
* Lurk
* Bulwark
* Impervious
* Powers
* Vicious

-=Nurnen Poem=-
* Iron
* Serpents
* Avail
* Woe
* Hordes

-=Seregost Poem=-
* Slumbers
* Nest
* Poisoned
* Trapped
* Comes

Easy fight pit wins:
If your Orc is about to lose at a fight pit, simply quit the game 
and retry again until he wins.

Remember To Summon:
It’s best to remember that you can summon various Orcs that have pledged their 
alliance to help during your fight. If a battle is getting out of hand then 
request help from your followers.

1.You will not be able to create your own army until you don't get to get to 
  Act 2, at the Nurnen Region.
2.Make a habit of holding down a single Elf Shot, for just in case purpose, like 
  if there is any explosion barrel to shot at nearby and if you are short of the 
  Elf Shot, then don't worry as there is a possibility that you can probably, 
  recover some from the Orc, by dominating on it. You can follow the same 
  processes if you wish to regain some health.
3.Try to keep the entire combo button in your head when the Might Meter is full. 
  As this will let you dominate on the Orc, by pressing A+B.
4.Missions play a very important role in Shadow of War, as these directly affect 
  the Nemesis System. So always have a look at the Map for the Mission. Many 
  times you will have only 3 Chance to complete the mission before it expires 
  so, always have an eye on the Map. Also make a note of, that every time you go 
  for another Time limit mission, the timer will reduce down the time by one and 
  if the mission expires then an outcome will be generated.
5.If you wish to have some nice amount of collectibles to collect then make a 
  point of capturing the Haedir Tower in each Map. These Haedir Tower are scattered 
  around each Map in a number of 3 and getting onto the top of it and acquiring it 
  will let you create a fast travel between the regions and you will have a number 
  of collectibles scattered around the region of Talion to collect.
6.Having a check at the surroundings is also a good idea with the help of the 
  Wraith Vision, as this will let you know about the things happening in the 
  surrounding like the number of Orcs, Captains and the other collectibles.
7.You will immediately go hidden as you hide in the Bushes and even make a sudden 
  attack in the Orcs nearby, by sampling pressing the right trigger. 
  This type of gameplay suits the best for the Stealth type players.

Hot to Dodge Bruz's Attacks:
Written by CogYang

Dodge Bruz's attacks by sliding through his legs! 
Basic tip on how to do this challenge in the quest "Ring of Power".

-=Ogre Leg Sliding=-
So this took me a while to figure out, thought I should share in case others 
had trouble. 

In order to slide between any ogre's legs, but Bruz in particular for the mission 
challenge, you will only need to dodge, not an actual leg slide. Specifically you 
have to dodge right at him, and only when he attacks with the dodge prompt. 

Keyboard default is SPACEBAR, and I find I often need to hit it twice for the 
dodge to execute properly. 

I do not know the default dodge for other platforms, but you can look it up for
yourself in the menu, guide, combat, dodging. Their discription for Vaulting 
specifically is what you'll be doing to slide under an ogre's legs.

How to Transfer your Followers:
Once you have started to conquer every Fortress in the region, you will feel to defend one 
fortress with your Strong Followers. And if you want to move your followers from one 
Fortress to another then you need a special item called - 'Reassignment Orders'. 
This item can only be found in War Chest and Silver Chest (buy with in-game currency).

It took us 23 Silver Chest to find this little item. Once you get the item early 
(Lucky You!) then simply use it with Training order to the follower you want to move.
This will make then head back to Market Garrison then reassign to any region you want. 
Still unsure about how to use the Training Order? Follow the below steps:

1.Head to the Start Menu to select the 'Army' option.
2.Highlight the Orc and select the 'Command' option(Y on Xbox One and Triangle on PS4).
3.Select Training Orders (X on Xbox One and Square on PS4).
4.Choose Reassignment Orders.

Note: If you give a Follower too much Power then they can even betray you.
If you are still having Problem with the Fortress then check our Guide for Defending 
Fortress and Acquiring Fortress with ease.

Easy Ways to Farm Legendaries:
If you just want as many Legendaries as fast as possible there isn’t much to optimize.
1.Kill every Captain on Sight. (Rarity doesn’t improve).
2.Always Skip Time when you Fast Travel. (For fresh Captains).
3.Farm Nemesis Missions, preferable these with multiple participants.

If you want to farm a specific Legendary it gets a bit more complicated.
1.Search for Banners etc. of the Clan you want, the best indicator is a Statue.
2.Search for the Soldier type that can drop your legendary.
3.Let him kill you.

Make sure there is always a free Slot so the new Captain doesn’t have to duel his way 
on the map which doesn’t always succeed.

Getting the Silenced Handgun:
Successfully complete the "Out In The Open" and "Getting Back Online" side missions 
in Chapter 7 to unlock the Silenced Handgun. Both side missions are for a man named 
Sykes. You find him fending off zombies in a parking lot, around the center of the 
map. You can enter the parking lot through the gate in the south. Kill all the zombies
and rescue Sykes. Then, talk to him in his safe house to complete the "Out In The Open"
side mission. He will then give you the "Getting Back Online" side mission, which 
requires you to backtrack a little bit and use the computer in the northern safehouse.
You then get teleported back to The Marrow where you must access a terminal. 
Run back to Sykes and he will unlock a big orange box in his safe house, which 
contains the Silenced Handgun.

Tips and Tricks:
Written by BEGONE THOT

This is a guide to some tips and tricks for players who have started playing Shadow Of War.

1.If you find yourself continuously overwhelmed while fighting captains/warchiefs/overlords,
invest in the shadow pull upgrade for Shadow strike. As long as they’re not arrow proof, 
you can pull them to you from a distance. Make sure you are in a hard place to get to so 
that you can 1v1 the captain without the hassle of other orcs interrupting.
2.The counter ability that insta-kills orcs is really strong, Invest in that skill when 
you can to easily clear orcs of the area.
3.Use your surroundings. It will make the difference between life and death, especially 
later when the nastier kinds of enemies start showing up. Morgal fly hives, Caragors and 
their cages and bait, exploding and poisonable grog barrels, Elfshot caches and the like 
will show up with your Wraithsight (default V). Use them to your advantage. 
4.Remember that enemies can still be stealth killed for a couple seconds after spotting 
you. The general rule of thumb is that you have until they draw their weapon to kill them.
5.When a Captain’s icon over his head turns from red to green, you can Grab and Drain or 
Shank him with no resistance. This can be very easily accomplished when they’re afraid of
something like burning or Caragors; when Terrified, they’re instantly grabbable.
6.Always use Wraithsight right before you cause a ruckus. You want to make sure there is 
an acceptable (usually below 2) number of captains in the area, or else you may be 
7.Do not underestimate the importance of Elfshot. Longbow shots pierce, and hammer throws 
have splash damage. In addition, a large number of Captains and Warchiefs have traits that
need Elfshot to exploit; usually causing them to be Dazed if you shoot them in the head or
the foot. Caches are more important in War since you can’t have the talents that Dominate 
and restore Elfshot on Drain at the same time.
8.USE THOSE WEAKNESSES. The weaknesses of the captains are an essential part of the game.
Some Captains will be all but unkillable without exploiting their weaknesses.
9.Never start a fair fight. You’re a Ranger, not a Spartan. Scout the area before you 
fight. See where the orcs are. See where environmental features are that you can use. 
Find a good fallback point. Elfshot caches, Caragor bait, etc. are. The game rewards 
diversifying your attack strategies, so get used to using everything at your advantage.
Unless something doesn’t go according to plan, you should be able to kill every Orc and
Uruk in a given situation without engaging more than 2 or 3 at a time.
10.Your orcs only level as high as your current level. If you are trying to level them 
and their not changing its because of your level.
11.Sending an uruk to garrison removes blood brother trait. Useful if you like your 
follower, but want to kill his bb. And killing a blood brother makes a follower betray 
12.Prioritize getting Combat Drain first. You do not regen health and the magical health 
herbs from Shadow of Mordor are gone. You only regain health by draining an enemy orc and 
this is exceptionally hard to do in the middle of the horde. Combat drain murders an orc 
(or dominates it) and gives you back health. It really is better than execution in almost 
every circumstance.
13.You have to unlock each skill in order along each row for Talion. So if you want to 
ride Graugs, you first have to learn to ride Caragors.
14.Ologs are your best friend, even if they aren’t on your side. One charged arrow to the 
head, or one stun prompt and you can “mount” the beast and now you have a hitstreak 
building, might filling, grunt destroying machine.
15.The Wraith stun is still too good. Literally any captain that can be vaulted can be 
followed up with a stun. Use it to take out those pesky defender captains.

Gem Guide:
Written by RedVenomDragon

So, you want to know how to make/use gems to their fullest potential. 
This guide is for you, then!

Gems. They're not important at a glance, but when closely examined, their true potential 
is revealed. There are three types of gems, warrior gems, health gems, and wealth gems. 
Each one has different uses. To unlock gem slots, you must pay 1000 mirian per gear piece. 
To get the mirian, there are other guides that go more in-depth on that. 
This guide, however, aims to introduce, or help guide gem production. 

-=Warrior Gems=-
Warrior gems are the damage gems. They make your weapons do more damage, based on the 
rarity, and if put on weapons. They make all of your weapons do more damage when put on
armor, however not as much as when a single gem is placed on one of your weapons. 
Finally, they make your followers do more damage when placed on a rune. 

-=Health Gems=-
Health gems give you more health, and, like warrior gems, give different bonuses when 
put on different gear pieces. When put on a weapon, they increase the amount of health 
stolen with the weapon that they are equipped upon. For armor, they increase your 
maximum health, and for runes they decrease the amount of damage your followers take. 

-=Wealth Gems=-
Wealth gems are gems that provide bonuses that profit you, as they are 'wealth' gems.
When placed on a weapon, they increase mirian drop chances from that weapon. When placed 
on armor, they increase your total xp gain. Lastly, when placed on a rune, they provide 
up to five levels on newly recruited followers. 

-=Farming Gems=-
Okay, with the bonuses of each gem out the way, let's get to how you farm gems. Gems 
can be obtained in three ways. The first way is through treasure orcs, which is 
generally the easiest way to find them. The second way is through randomly wandering 
through the world and finding gems laying around. The last way is through Shadow of 
The Past missions, which are only obtainable through completing all three objectives 
and can only be obtained once. For this guide, treasure orcs are the method that is 
going to be used. There are two types of treasure orcs. One is the usual orc with a 
white marker above their head that drops basic gems. The second, on the other hand, 
are treasure ologs, that have a red marker on their head that can drop either 1,000 
mirian or a Polished gem. Treasure ologs are rare, so you'll generally go through 
the world only killing usual treasure orcs. 

-=Gem Tiers=-
Gem tiers provide the multiplier for their bonuses. For example, a regular warrior 
gem provides a 10% boost to a weapon, whereas a perfect warrior gem provides a 30% 
boost to the weapon. The regular tier of gem is the most basic and can be found by 
killing usual treasure orcs. The second tier is carved gems. Carved gems can be found 
by killing treasure orcs, too, however it is a lot rarer. They can also be found by 
combining three basic gems. Polished gems are the third tier of gems, and they can be 
found by killing a treasure olog or combining three carved gems. The fourth tier of 
gems is refined gems. They can only be made by combining three polished gems, however
 the result is very much worth it. You might only get these late act II or early act 
IV. The fifth and final tier of gems is perfect gems. They are only obtainable through 
combining three refined gems. These gems are incredibly late game items, and you will 
generally only get them in late shadow wars. 

-=Combining Gems=-
Combining gems can be done by going to the gem screen and hovering over a gem. If 
you have three of that gem, you can make a better tier gem. It is highly recommended 
to not do this when you don't have to, seeing as you can end up with a shortage of 
powerful gems to give to armor/weapons/runes that you haven't paid attention to. 
For example, you can rush making a perfect gem for one gear piece, but then only 
have carved gems of that type for other pieces of gear.

Easy XP in Act 4:
The best and quickest way to gain lots of XP in Act 4 is by losing your keeps instead 
of defending them. You earn a lot more experience by retaking a fort than you will 
successfully defending it. You get approximately 50k XP for successfully defending a 
fort, while you get approximately 160k XP for failing to defend a fort and then 
retaking it. For more XP, add White Gems to your armor for a small XP buff. Upgrade 
them for even more XP. When losing a fort, you do not lose Warchiefs or Overlords. 
Overlords are captured, so if you want to keep them, you will have to complete a 
rescue mission later. You can send out Orcs to save him. To make things easier,
replace your good Overlords with useless ones before losing. There is (currently)
a bug that makes the rescue mission sometimes never appear. To avoid potentially 
losing your best Uruks, leave some spaces open and swap terrible Overlords into 
your fort. For every fort defense quest, simply lose the fort and retake it for 
around three times the regular amount of XP you would earn.

Survivalist Tips for Act I:
Written by HyperKnight

A beginner’s advice: how to not become a serial orc fodder.

-=To-Do List=-
* Do not believe all those saying that to experience the nemesis system and make 
  cool stories you have to die: they are a suicidal, masochistic orc feeders.
* Start on easy. Yeah. If you do not have ninja’s speed you will miss much shorter on 
  higher difficulties combat prompts and die. A lot. When easy turns out to be too 
  easy you can always crank it up from options.
* Do not hesitate to run away when low on health, you can always drain some orcs and 
  return, immediately or later. Put your best green gem into sword and save might for 
  consume to keep health up.
* If you see a captain much higher level than you chock full of dangerous moves, the 
  only correct tactic here is to run and save him for later.
* Practice every move until you get it right: counter, glaive, etc.
* Take your time culling low level or mortally vulnerable captains for xp and gear, 
  collecting collectibles and completing challenges to expand your arsenal, every skill 
  point will make your life easier.
* You can get xp from simply watching nemesis missions, no need to risk your life and 
  limb if there are high level captains involved.
* Try to finish your fights asap, the longer you fight the more the chance that you take 
  some hits and eventually die.
* Using underhanded assassin tactics is generally much safer than fighting captains face 
  to face. You can do a stealth jump from the roof for some massive damage or straight up 
  stealth sprint to the captain from behind and stab him. 
* Other moves include headshots, exploding grog barrels, applying conditions, riding 
  caragors, etc to name a few.
* Making good use of this advice, you shall become the one who completes online vendettas, 
  not the one who spawns them.
