|“||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), and is currently only worn in the Mod by 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.
When you fully equip a suit of Morgul armour, you gain the achievement "Witch-king".

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.)
