Middle Earth: Shadow Of War Army Recruitment – How To Add Enemies To Your Army

Middle Earth Shadow Of War Army Recruitment - How To Add Enemies To Your Army
Middle Earth: Shadow Of War most anticipated feature sees Talon building an army of Orcs and Uruks. This Middle Earth: Shadow Of War Army Recruitment – How To Add Enemies To Your Army guide will walk you through the basics and the initial stages of recruiting enemies to join your cause.

Despite being the main focal point of all the pre-release footage, you don’t unlock the ability to recruit enemies to build your army for some time. About 5-10 hours into the game depending on how much side content you complete. You need to progress through the main story campaign until you reach Act II: Rise to Power. This is shortly after you complete the story missions in the second area. Once in the Nurnen map progress through the first mission until Ring of Power mission becomes available.

This is the mission that unlocks the ability to recruit enemies to join your army. You need to weaken them, if they are Captains and above, and then Dominate them. Once they are dominated you have the opportunity to recruit them with a prompt on the screen.

You can only recruit enemies of the same or lower level. There are items that aid with this, such as the Sword of Dominion. Check out our Legendary Sets guide for more information.
