When close to the final missions, you will learn how to issue commands to branded units. Brand any existing bodyguards of a Warchief, then brand Captains who do not yet have a Warchief they are guarding. After branding a Captain, dominate it immediately and issue a command to have them try to become a bodyguard for that Warchief. The Captain will then need to complete a trial by ordeal mission to become a bodyguard. Once you have obtained five bodyguards for the same Warchief, enter that Warchief's mission. "Stinking Rebels" will be earned when you get him to appear.
Play Trials of War mode. It will be easy to kill Warchiefs before Uruks take their place.
You do not need to brand a Captain beforehand. Simply enter any easy target's recruitment mission. Brand him before the first set of Uruks die. You can be seen by the enemy as long as you kill all the targets indicated by the yellow dot markers afterwards. After you brand the Captain, all the Uruks following him will be under his control, as if you had branded them yourself. Ensure that the Captain does not die from other groups of Uruks to allow success of the recruitment mission. When the mission ends, use the ability to kill all branded units on sight.
Go to a Forge tower, or ruins near campfires that have four floors (easier). If at a Forge tower, use Attract to bring enemies closer first. Stealth kill an enemy, and immediately climb back up and wait using stealth to check when you can stealth kill again. The enemies usually lose focus after short time, as long as there are not any archers that can spot you. "Height of Despair" will be earned after ten such kills.
After getting Double Charge and Fire Arrow, prepare by charging your hit counter on any enemy. Get in very close range of the Berserker, shoot Fire Arrow then immediately hit the combat execution. If not done fast enough, the Berserker can die from fire or get back up.
Have the Blade Master skill. Find a remote campfire that has a Berserker beside it. Sprint from behind and Wraith Stun it, then launch into an attack flurry. As the Berserker is pushed back into the fire, complete the execution.
- Several of the mission names (for example, "A Knife in the Dark", and "The Dark Rider") are also titles to chapters in the Lord of the Rings books.
- Celebrimbor will say, "Fly, you fool" during "Shattered Memories", after waking to find the Graug. This is a reference to Gandalf, when he faces the Balrog.
- After returning to the Forge Tower, Talion will sometimes ask Celebrimbor what the towers are. He will state that they are "lights in the darkness of Mordor, when all other have gone out", which is a reference to the Vial of Galadriel given to Frodo.
- When Talion states that Torvin is a wanderer, Celebrimber will say, "not all who wander are lost", which is a reference to the poem "All That is Gold Does Not Glitter".
Kill a Morgul Bat, which appear near caves in Mordor. Enter the "Nature" section of the Appendices to read the following description: "Those Uruks that get poisoned become horribly diseased and bloated, wearing their deformities as marks of honor. The poison slowly eats at their minds, sending them nightmares of a demonic man-bat who preys on fear."
