Map of Mordor

Mordor (Sindarin for Black Land) is a Land in the south-east of Middle-earth. This land comprises several areas, both in the present and the past, within the enclosing mountain ranges

"One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. And the great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume. Not with ten thousand men could you do this. It is folly." (Boromir)

To reach Mordor, a character must complete Mordor Awaits before they can pass the Black Gate without dying and enter The Plateau of Gorgoroth. On another note, you can also use Mysterious Door to bypass the gate.

After the journey to Mordor, other regions of Mordor become accessible.

For a summary of levels, see Regional Quests, a page which also indicates the main level of creatures and mobs.

Mordor Besieged

Mordor Besieged

Mordor Besieged is a region in Mordor in the area now known as the Plateau of Gorgoroth, as it was during the Great Alliance and the Siege of Barad-dûr in the year 3440 of the Second Age. The area is spread around the northern slopes of Amon Amarth (Mount Doom) and is within the current area known as Dor Amarth.

The region is initially accessed during the Black Book of Mordor Quest Chapter 11.2: The Same As You, after which stables, milestone and banners can be used to move to and from the area.

Morgul Vale

Morgul Vale

Morgul Vale (Sindarin name: Imlad Morgul) is a region found within the land of Mordor.

Morgul Vale was the valley of the Morgulduin in the western Mountains of Shadow. At its outflow into Ithilien stood the fortress of Minas Morgul ("Tower of Dark Sorcery"). The name was only used in the later Third Age, after the Nazgûl captured the fortress of Minas Ithil and turned it into the Tower of Dark Sorcery. The only vegetation in the valley was to be found along the river - fields of white flowers believed to give off noxious vapors.
