8. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor The Bright Lord DLC

External image

This is the second and last story DLC for Shadows of Mordor as a standalone campaign called The Bright Lord, which contains new missions, challenges, power level of Uruks raised to 25, abilities, skins and obviously again achievements. This DLC is quite difficult, because your life meter is half of Talion, but for the other side you have new abilities and the power of the One Ring to help you.

First things first, you will see One Ring optional missions after you reforge all 5 towers in the map. You will need do all of them (only four) to earn the only missable achievement from this DLC.

Battle Forged

Maximize the power of the Ring by completing all of the One Ring missions.

In the start of the first mission you will learn some new abilities, as Shadow Brand and Wraith Flash. Talking about Shadow Brand (cn_LT + cn_B) you need to use this ability 20 times in Uruks to earn an achievement, keep using in the first missions and you will have the achievement below in no time.

So you have an "personal army" of Uruks, whenever you want you can press cn_left to call up to five Uruks to help you in a battle.

After this you will need to rebuild 5 forge towers in your map, by branding Uruks in each region to call attention of their leaders (same as tutorial explained), after killing (or dominating) the captains you can rebuild another tower, until you complete all five.

Eregion Reforged

Build all the Forge Towers in Udun.

When you take the last tower, in the mission called Press the Advantage, the captain has a weakness with stealth, you can dominate him by stealth branding (ability only for this DLC) pressing cn_RT + cn_B. Doing this you will unlock an achievement.

Like I said in the start of this page, exactly after you reforge all towers, and unlock the Eregion Reforged achievement, all One Ring mission will be unlocked. You need to do all of these missions to earn the only missable achievement of this DLC, don't finish the DLC before complete all One Ring missions. Completing these missions grants longer duration for your One Ring power.

This final reforge tower mission is a awesome opportunity to try the achievement for brand 20 Uruks in 60 seconds. If you can't brand all 20 another good option is the One Ring mission called Strength in Numbers. By doing this task you will unlock another achievement.

The Silver Fist

Brand 20 Uruks in 60 seconds.
