Tip 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. Tip 2 : The count »»

This is the trickiest achievement in the game. Start by finding an Olog Captain who has the "Gang Of Ologs" bonus. You can view this by clicking the Right Analog-stick (Xbox controller) on the Captain in the army menu (fourth from the left in his bonus tab). Almost every Olog Captain has this. Even if they do not have it, they are very likely to have normal »»

The Shadow Wars take place after the ending of the game and the Capture of Minas Morgul. It's the set of quests that hide "the true ending" cutscene. There are ten rounds to the series of attacks on your strongholds. It'a basically defending them until all eight of the Nazgul warchiefs are dead. Best thing to do in each city is to make a combo of effects, wh »»

From: MarcyOne

The method I used was, during an online conquest. There are always Olegs here. I used a poison weapon and once the captain was on very low health I stunned an Oleg and ran around. When the captain died the trophy popped without me touching him. The fact I was on the Oleg when he died was enough. »»

Fast travel to the Haedir point in the middle of Nurnen or bottom of Seregost. There is approximately a 25% chance of a drake spawning, just keep using the "advance time" option until one spawns. Next, you'll also need a Graug, so I would recommend the Upgrade: Graug Call for the Call Mount skill under the Mounted skill chain. Equip this. To set up you'll wa »»

From: Ashzimm909

Pretty self-explanatory. You can't dominate an orc until Act II, but you can have them kill you any time. After killing you, they get significantly stronger, so you might have to humiliate him after he's killed you all three times. Also, I'm not sure how the game determines whether the orc will humiliate you or kill you, but it seems that each orc is predisposed towar »»

From: Callum03hibs

From: Daisy822

Throughout the game, you can start duels with captains and gain valuable loot from them to complete special sets. If you complete every duel on every region, one final duel will unlock where you fight a captain that has no tribe. He isn't very hard to kill. From him, you get the very last piece of gear. This unlocks the achievement. »»
