All that host was clad in sable, dark as the night. Against the wan walls and the luminous pavement of the road Frodo could see them, small black figures in rank upon rank, marching swiftly and silently, passing outwards in an endless stream. Before them went a great cavalry of horsemen moving like ordered shadows, and at their head was one greater than all the rest: a Rider, all black, save that on his hooded head he had a helm like a crown that flickered with a perilous light.

Morgul armour was made by the servants of Sauron in the rotting city of Minas Morgul (formerly Minas Ithil). In the mod it can currently only be found on players. Angmar Orc warriors wore the armour (minus the helmet), until they were removed in Public Beta 24.

The set (especially the helm) resembles the Witch King's armour in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings movie trilogy.

It provides 15 (10armour5armour) protection, like vanilla iron armour, but has much more durability.

As of Public Beta 24, Morgul armour no longer inflicts the wither effect on an attacker. Instead, it lowers the durability of the attacker's weapon.

When you fully equip a suit of Morgul armour, you gain the achievement "Witch-king".

CraftingEdit

This armour set can be crafted on a Angmar, Morgul, or Dol Guldur crafting table using Morgul steel, which is made by alloying Orc steel and Gulduril in an Orc forge.

Durability Effect Edit

When a player attacks a player or NPC wearing Morgul armour, the durability of the attacker's weapon is decreased by 10% of the remaining durability. This makes this armour particularly effective against full durability weapons, since in only 3 hits, the attacker's weapon will lose over a quarter of its durability!

(Note: This doesn't affect the durability of NPC weapons, since they will not lose durability on striking an opponent. This includes weapons given to the NPC by the player.)
