The Southron Warriors are the soldiers that fight for the Southrons, in their homeland of Near Harad, though they will be ready to aid Sauron in his effort to defeat the Free People. Their hatred of Gondor comes from a long history of wars between the two nations.

Spawning Edit

They will spawn naturally in Near Harad Fertile, often in Southron Fortresses, Southron Villages and Southron towers, and in Harondor. They can also be found in the Near Harad Desert, but only in Southron desert camps.

Appearance Edit

The Southron warriors will usually be found wearing a full set of gold, red, and black armour. Sometimes they wear a black or red turban or have no head wear at all. They will also be found usually carrying a Haradric Spear, Scimitar or Dagger, or Maces or Polearms. As of Public Beta 27, they can sometimes be found wearing Haradric Turbans.

Behaviour Edit

Upon seeing a player or NPC negatively aligned with the Southrons, they will attack them with the weapon they are wielding.

Advantages and Disadvantages Edit
