Things are getting a little more magical and mystic in Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War as we have the next tribe of Orcs here to look at that are given a name that also fit right in. Here we have the Mystic Tribe for the game and, as you most likely guessed, these are the Orcs that will be performing rituals and using the dark arts to give us more of a challenge in the game. It also looks like they are also just as despised by the rest of the world in Shadow Of War due to the fact that they can fight as well as use black magics on you to cause all kinds of different things. At least that is the thought here and we will not know for sure until October 10th.
It does seem a bit strange to have a tribe like this in Shadow Of War; at least to me. Given the higher paced action that will generally be going on, it almost seems like this tribe will be ripe for the plucking through all kinds of stealth means in the game. Nothing distracts you more than trying to sacrifice someone to an elder god to cause a curse on someone else out there in the world. Hopefully they will have better alarms or even mystical ones to keep us at bay or to alert them to break the ritual so we cannot just swarm in and take control of them all. That would be my tactic in the end, at least if it was something that could be pulled off with general ease.
Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War — Mystic Tribe
The Mystic tribe, a faction of Orcs who specialize in dark magic, rituals and incantations that date back thousands of years. In Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War, Orcs now belong to tribes, which extend their influence stemming from the Overlords ruling the mighty fortresses throughout the open world, providing a rich ecosystem of missions, exploration and a dynamic Orc society with diverse Orc cultures, all brought to life through the expanded Nemesis System. While the Mystic tribe's warriors are as capable as Orcs of other tribes, all of Mordor fear the curses and spells that the Mystic tribe can invoke, who call upon their black magic of the Dark Lord to torment their enemies.
