Mount Doom, also known as Orodruin, and Amon Amarth is a location in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. It is a volcano in the lands of Mordor which was used to forge the One Ring, and also the only place where the Ring can be destroyed.


Mount Doom was the reason Sauron chose Mordor as his home in the Second Age. He knew he could use the fire inside Mount Doom for his forging and magic, which resulted in the forging of the most powerful artifact in Middle-earth, the One Ring.

Sauron seems to have put his own power into Mount Doom, making it more than just a volcano, similarly to how Sauron's master Melkor had extended his power into the flesh of Arda to corrupt the Valar's creation of the world. As such, when Sauron's power grew, it caused the fires to spring to life.

Namesakes Edit

The International Astronomical Union names all mountains on Saturn's moon Titan after mountains in Tolkien's work. In 2012, they named a Titanian mountain "Doom Mons" after Mount Doom.
