Light of Eärendil / Shadow Level

Update 21, the Mordor Expansion, August 2017, introduces a new system for obtaining necessary "Buffing Items."

Light of Eärendil / Shadow Levels

  • This effect is present in all of Mordor to varying degrees.
  • This effect increments as you move from the main path.
This moment of increment is accompanied by a brief purple screen flare; your character's legs are engulfed with a purple swirling cloud, visible to you only, not others, not even to those in your Fellowship or Raid grouping; the Shadow of Mordor-icon.png icon appears beneath your portrait and the Light of Eärendil / Shadow Level gauge Light of Eärendil-Shadow Levels guage.jpg appears.
If you use a LUA plugin such as BuffBars, you will see a numeric value indicating the Shadow level.
  • If you move out of the Shadow, a crystal flare indicates that the Shadow is gone; the effect icon and gage also disappear.
There is no general indicator that the level has decreased, only the icon and gage under your portrait change.
  • Note: Hope tokens have no effect. The Shadow of Mordor is only countered by the "Light of Eärendil", a buff provided by your gear.
Items that grant the Light of Eärendil can be obtained in Mordor as drops, quest rewards and can be bartered for with Ash of Gorgoroth.
(These are cumulative, to maximum 314 Light of Eärendil).
  • If you mouse over the Shadow of Mordor-icon.png icon, you will see a pop-up indicating the effects at each "net" Shadow level containing information similar to the list below.
When your Effective Shadow is greater than zero you will experience a debuff called the Shadow of Mordor. This will reduce your Incoming Healing by “X” percent, increase your Incoming Damage by “Y” percent, and decrease your Outgoing Damage by “X” percent. Note that Incoming Healing includes Potions and Foods!
  • The gage under your portrait shows:
Light of Eärendil: the White portion of the bar
Shadow of Mordor: the Purple portion of the bar

The Ash of Gorgoroth system

  • This system allows players to break down unused or unwanted Mordor equipment into Ash of Gorgoroth, which can then be used to purchase new equipment from a vendor. Some items cannot be deconstructed. Each Crafting Profession also has a new recipe to create an item that can be deconstructed.
  • One uses the Flame of Ancalamír-icon.png Flame of Ancalamír to deconstruct certain things into Ash of Gorgoroth-icon.png Ash of Gorgoroth -- which are then used as barter items with the High-Enchanger (Elf-Smith) in various places on the Plateau of Gorgoroth.
  • Once acquired, the flame is not consumed. It remains in your inventory. You can link it to a Quick-slot for easy access if you so desire.
  • To use the Flame, right-click on the flame, and then left-click on the item you wish to destroy.
The dialog will then appear: "Are you shure you want to DESTROY the <item name> to extract <number> Ashes of Gorgoroth?"
The recipes all require Westemet Master of the Guild status with the appropriate guild, and Doomfold Crafting ability in the matching profession.


Update 21.2

  • Ash of Gorgoroth is now Account-bound. For this change to take effect, you must log in every character on your account that has Ashes of Gorgoroth in their inventory or Barter Wallet.

Update 21.3

  • Ash of Gorgoroth now has a currency cap of 10,000, and now automatically goes into the Barter Wallet. Players who currently have more Ash than the cap will be unable to Disenchant items until they lower their Ash of Gorgoroth below the cap.
  • Level 106 to 115 landscape mobs will no longer have a chance to drop Incomparable equipment that can be Disenchanted into Ash of Gorgoroth. mobs in the resource instances will continue to drop incomparable equipment.
