Next faction to receive an update is Mordor. Nearly all heroes had some or all of their abilities reworked. The usefulness of several units was increased and a new structure has been added. Changes have been made in the Spellbook and various balance changes were made as well.



Heroes


  • Sauron - the right hand of Morgoth and the second Dark Lord. He starts off at rank 10 and is recruited at the cost of 5000 resources. A bug related to his attack was fixed and he has received a new ability:
    • Rank 1: Servants of the One - Nearby friendly Ringwraiths have their Attack increased by 25%. Requires the One Ring upgrade to be researched.
  • With-king - the lord of the Nazgul and the former ruler of Angmar. He starts off at rank 10 and is recruited at the cost of 6000 resources. His Screech ability is now properly working when on foot and he has received a new ability as well:
    • Rank 1: Ringwraiths - Reflects 10% of the received damage back to the attacker while on foot. Can also reveal nearby invisible units.
  • Nazgul - the greatest servants of Sauron. They start off at rank 10 and are recruited at the cost of 3000 resources each. They too received the Ringwraiths ability and had their Screech ability fixed.
  • Note: The Witch-king and Nazgul can mount their Fellbeasts only after the Sorcery of Morgul spell has been purchased.
  • Gothmog - an agile mounted hero, adept at leading the armies of Mordor into battle. He starts off at rank 1 and is recruited at the cost of 1500 resources. He has received a new ability:
    • Rank 6: Ruthless Discipline - Grants experience to friendly units within an area.
  • Mouth of Sauron - the messenger of Mordor and a skilled Black Numenorian sorcerer. He starts off at rank 1 and is recruited at the cost of 1200 resources. He has been given a new model and now uses his BFME 2 soundset. Two of his abilities have been reworked:
    • Rank 1: Messenger of Mordor - Nearby friendly units gain +25% Attack and +5% Speed.
    • Rank 4: Poisonous Words - Nearby enemies gain -100% Experience and move 10% slower for 20 seconds.

Spellbook


  • Tier 2: The Haradrim Allies spell has been moved to Tier 3 and replaced with:
    • Slave fields of Nurn - The resource production of a target friendly Slaughter House is increased by 250% for 60 seconds.
  • Tier 3: The Corsairs of Umbar spell has been replaced with:
    • Haradrim Allies - Summons a Mumakil and 3 battalions of Haradrim Riders for 90 seconds.
  • Tier 4: The Darkness spell now gives 33% bonus Attack and Armor instead of 50%.

Structures


  • Morgul Watchers - the sleepless guardians of Minas Morgul. They have been inspired by the Two Watchers of Cirrith Ungol that Sam encounters on his mission to save Frodo. They can be built at the defensive building plots at the cost of 350 resources once the Sorcery of Morgul spell has been unlocked. They reduce the Attack of nearby enemies by 25% and Speed by 10%.
  • Morgul Barracks require less experience for advancing to ranks 2 and 3 .

Units


  • Black Uruks - the elite infantry of Mordor. They are trained at the cost of 550 resources from the Morgul Barracks and are limited to 5 hordes at a time. Black Uruks have been given a new model and have been reworked gameplay wise as well:
    • They are adept at destroying enemy structures and excel in combat against enemy heroes, but are weak against cavalry and archers.
  • Orc Spearmen are now trained in battalions of 10. They can now also form a combo horde with Orc Archers.
  • Orc Warriors and Archers have been given several more models and textures.
  • Battering Rams of both Isengard and Mordor now deal 500 damage instead of 600.

Other changes


  • The One Ring upgrade's research time has been increased from 100 to 120 seconds.
  • Sauron's recruitment time has been increased from 100 to 120 seconds.


Credits for Mouth of Sauron, Black Uruk and Morgul Watchers' models go to Mathijs and the former Shadow and Flame mod team.

That would be all for this update. I hope you like the changes and additions and feel free to post any suggestions and report any bugs you find in the current released version of Middle-earth Extended Edition.

Cheers,

The newest patch "officialy" used by the BFME1 community is 1.06. You should be able to use 1.03 and 1.05 too, but I can only provide proper support to players using 1.06 as that is the patch I use myself.

I recommend that you reinstall the game and try again with patch 1.06 installed.
