Best trick is to wait a year or two and buy the game of the year and have all the stuff, minus the marketplace.

Ultimate Tip: set difficulty to brutal then level up enemy orc captains to lvl 80. Play the missions where two enemy captains are executing, raiding, chasing one another. Do not engage just wait until one or the other die/ flee. You get up either way as long as you don't die. If you set difficulty to normal after every enemy orc captains are max level you can attempt to shame them thus getting XP. Rinse repeat.

You get XP not get up. Typo

The quickest way to level up is to complete all the captain killing/luring out challenges for areas on the map (they have orange chevrons on the map) - usually the XP is between 2,000 - 9,000. It's always handy to bring your best recruited Captain as a bodyguard if things get hairy (I use Epic/Legendary orcs as bodyguards). A couple challenges and you'll level up. Plus you get the loot. The best weapon to defeat Captains in the throngs of orcs is the Glaive with Deadly Striker skill extension (clicking square after creating glaive provides an effective method of crowd control), also 'shadow kill striking' a captain's entire retinue before engaging is a great way to increase your odds. If you issue a Death Threat the captain will show up without his huge retinue and is easier to kill. Recruiting Captains in the middle of big groups of attacking orcs is hard, there is a skill point to increase the speed of Dominate which helps a little, but always good to thin out the crowd a bit. Shooting captains with exploding head shots (Detonate skill) is a great way to stand back and kill from a distance. Even better if they explode and take out nearby orcs too. If you really must engage always sneak up from behind and Brutalise a Captain before finishing him off by pinning his feet (Pinning Skill) and more headshots and a couple executions and maybe some dagger bursts. If a Captain is mounted always kill his Caragor before engaging. If the captain is significantly of higher level then order a couple orcs to kill him, watch them and if they are getting beaten jump in with your bodyguard after healing them and you should overwhelm the fella, you will probably need to shame him to bring I'm down a few levels before trying again to recruit him. If you kill a higher level orc then you get great loot.

Also, before I forget anther 'must have' skill is the freeze skill (use 'circle' during melee combat) and there is an extension of it as a skill where you jump over an orc using 'x' and it freezes them, works on captains too and is great way to kill captains easily because you can do rapid critical hits by tapping square when they are frozen. Freeze them around 2 or 3 times and hit them quickly and they'll be broken.

My sword makes it wear my glave charge attack does an explosion, I have an ability the allows me to double charge and the as long as I tap left mouse trigger I can continue with 4 or 5 more explosions. It’s really powerful
Bassibasukki (1 month ago)
Another tip you should mention=Rush story long as you get dominate ability, then recruit everything! You will be having wide variety of orcs to compare and experiment

Hey all. I am on the Xbox One X, and I just bought a physical copy of the Gold Edition (comes with code for season pass and code for gold chest, so that's two codes right there). I also got a pre order code for the Sword of Dominion, and legendary warchiefs. That totals 3 codes. I don't want to have any problems. I haven't even put the disc into my Xbox one X. Could anybody be so kind as to PLEASE give me step-by-step instructions on how and WHEN to redeem the codes? Do I redeem them before even installing the game? Do I start a new game, then exit out to dashboard, then redeem the codes? I'm paranoid about doing something wrong. Can someone give me a step-by-step guide for an idiot please? Thanks in advance!!!

I once fought an olog-hai named... Ur... something. Anyway,he was level 20 whereas I was level 12. He also was an epic captain, and had the epic graug call ability. So what I did was: shoot some meat to lure away the graug, stun the olog, and then ride him away to a safer location. We duel'd for a bit, and I broke him, shamed him, and went looking for him. Then I found him, got chased away by another captain, found him again, got chased away by the same captain, found him once more, almost killed him, dominated him, and commanded him to retreat. Thanks for reading my story, and have a great day!

"I" don't understand the lighting though" makes it feel flat, but is a reminder to the old "lotr" games, maybe they should have emulated "the friday the 13th: the game" style of using shadows lighting and reflections when choosing which "Jason" character to inhabit instead, ironic that the game is named shadow of. . ." the same with "soul mode" or what ever changing the opacity/quasi-tranparent with ingrained white, why not add a liquid nitrogen gas and fire effect with dynamic wave patterns and a hint of blue in it or something. vs mode with miniatures okay reminds me of dungeons and dragons or, what beast fodder and urguk the nail biter the names. . . wow wonder what "Tolkien" would have thought and who he would have agreed with." Not "his rights" anymore "tho." ( double smack) "Fresh, n' clean! "ba-pa-duh. . ."

Factor Fitness (9 months ago)
The first point is awful advice. Taking down grunts is super easy and they're walking health reserves. Killing them when you don't have to is pointless. The skill that allows you to punch opponents on the ground and the skill that gains might on counters are *much* more useful. Grunts are far too easy to take skills to counter against - all skills should be focused around killing captains.

Guys i found a way to easily kill war Chiefs overlords and captains What you do is go somewhere high up where no orc can climb up then use the shadow strike pull to pull the captain overlord or war chief over to you and they will take damage and then it is one vs one meaning no interruptions from other orcs your welcome
Carlton Slappy (10 months ago)
Great Game!!! It plays and feels like a good mixture of Batman: The Arkham series and Assassins Creed. With a Far Cry skill tree lol. Fun game to nerd out too

I hate loot boxes but with this game it barely effects the game. Its a Good Game. Its not like Battlefront II
Jake Smith (10 months ago)
This game does have its really tough parts though so make sure you have a variety of weapons to effect a range of enemies. I started a captain battle once & ended up being ambushed by 3 others. Let me tell ya 4 v 1 is tough especially when only 1 of the captains had a lower level than Talion
Jake Smith (10 months ago)
Hands down my favourite game ive bought this year its such a long game with many side missions to do. If you get bored with this game its your own fault. & no you don’t have to any loot boxes. I only bought two with the in currency i earned over time & realised its way more fun to play without using them. Plus if you save your Mirian upgrades its makes the game a lot better early on for slight advantages

I'm currently playing shadow of war with a challenge of I'm only allowed to use talions starting gear. Any other weapon armor or ring I receive must be scrapped. Just finished all the carnan quests and have captured two forts so far I'm also on nemesis difficulty to add that extra layer of challenge

Here's a tip that is worth more than all these put together. Use the xp boosts before story missions to get MEGA XP. Play online conquests if you run out of xp boosts as the gold chests you gwt almost always give you one. It should be called 9 tips for idiots who shouldn't have bought this game because if you dont know these already you should play candy crush instead.

this pay to win thing is stupid you can get everything in the game without paying you can get gold by playing the game not sure how but I did it I think it has something to do with online play but pointless to pay spent my gold on a chest only to have my legendary orc killed by a much lower lvl not even epic orc so ya just play the game and stop bitching about paying aspect every game does it these days this game is a perfect example of how to do it without making a pay to win game definitely an amazing game
francis WARLORD (1 year ago)
This game was to easy even On nemesis mode I was level 60 before I finished shadow wars and never lost any fortresses I wish the game was more difficult

HighNoon (1 year ago)
I feel they make it silly to get a legendary recruit I fought one to high a level so I shamed him down only to do it over and over again till I just gave up and killed him , so it makes me think they do it on purpose to force you to buy a gold chest to get a legendary recruit, they will let you get weapon but they make it ridiculous even the legendary overlord they make him a higher level than you so you can’t recruit. But I still like the game and I’m not buying anything , just hope you got the pre order 4 legendary or you won’t see many till your level 45

Scooter Mcgee (1 year ago)
So many loot box comments smh... This game isn't pay to win I've sunken many hours into it and I'm getting a great experience and I haven't spent a dime more then the 60 dollar price tag... for you saying it's p2w pls explain how because honestly if your talking online conquest you know nothing about the game. The defending team don't lose their orcs/warcheifs and overlords so you don't just set up your fort, then leave, then come back to an obliterated army. The only time you lose orcs is when you are the one raiding and you can tell by the defense rating if your ready or not so it's your fault if your army gets decimated. If you haven't bought the game because of all these people who say it's p2w, don't listen to them I'm pretty sure 99% of people WHO HAVE THE GAME agree that it's not p2w and you still get the full experience without spending a penny.
Dakota Cross (4 months ago)
ive purposely lost forts and got half the captains worth of their intel each one i hunt and or kill, plus it great to automattically see which orcs of the ones you get info on are worth
CreepMcJack (11 months ago)
Well.... kinda is pay to win, a guy paying off to level his orcs faster to faster conquer another castle would be precicely P2W, and if he used real money on his castle it’s still something he paid 4 and didn’t grind 4. Pepole paying their way to the top however, I will agree don’t show off any skills, they show off wallets. A guy who pays gets legendary orcs almost all the time, with the silver warchests you get epic orcs. So if I paid money to raid your castle and your defense rating goes down because off that(check online button inn pause menu) he kinda paid to get that advantages he had, and you loses defense rating because off it. Thats also 1 reason you are aloved to raid your own castle, to check if your defense rating could increase or not. So, it’s pay 2 win, sinch the payer gets legendaries bo payers gets epic, wich actully have some advantages to the payer. Yeah, you never see any one raiding you, and you can’t defend your castle while anyone is doing so, but it’s the a numbers game to defense/attack stats inn the online part.
