    The power of the Wraith has amplified Talion's abilities, and granted him many more. Among those, his ability to navigate the world has changed significantly.

    Here are a few ways you won't be simply walking into Mordor.



    No matter the elevation, the powers of the Wraith have granted you the ability to leap from higher heights than any mortal could. Whether you're escaping a fight, you're dropping down on an unsuspecting foe for a kill, or you're departing one of the mysterious towers hidden around Mordor, you won't have to slow down due to a cumbersome descent.




    Using Celebrimbor's speed, Talion will now be able to make his fleet feet far more capable than ever before. As you spend time mastering your abilities and growing your strength, you'll…

    The fight that Celebrimbor and Talion now share is one of great significance. Together they'll work against Sauron's forces to try and build an army of their own, and bend Mordor to their will.

    So how did everyone enjoy the new trailer? What where your thoughts and reactions? Like most of you guessed the identity of the Wraith is Celebrimbor! Im excitied to hear your reactions to this release! It adds so much more lore to SoM and was a great idea in my personal opinon. If you pay close attention to the trailer you can see and hear that Talion is struggling with what he wants to do i.e. get revenge or let it be. It seems as though Celebrimbor is arguing with Talion to go seek revenge for the murder of his family. Another intresting topic is the fact that there will be somewhat of a grey area here. Depending on the route you take to complete the game, different outcomes can occur! More details on that TBA. We als…

    Depending on what you learn about this Captain, there's a chance that he might be vulnerable to a certain monster within Mordor. By utilizing said monster's bloodlust, you might be able to bring one to your aid to kill the Captain. But…
