By MauH˙R - 18th July 2016 - 03:23 AM

Tripple Pit Spam into Palace

Slaughterhouse->Slaughterhouse->Orcpit->Slaughterhouse->Orcpit->Orc Warriors->Orcpit->Orc Warriors->Orc Archers->Orc Warriors->Orc Warriors->Haradrim Palace

A build that uses Orc spam as backbone of its army, granting you a lot of production but also making you fragile early on against superior unit compositions or cavarly starts. You can get a 4th Slaughterhouse before the Haradrim Palace if you feel able to defend it and you can vary the amount of Orc Archers in between the steps depending on the expected pressure (eg. vs. Dwarves).
It also depends on the match-up whether you want to get some Easterlings (eg. vs. Elves) from your Palace first or if you wanna upgrade right to Haradrim Lancers (eg. vs. Isen).
Keep in mind that all builds including an orcspam almost always keep spamming orcs without any interuption.

Double Pit Spam into Palace

Slaughterhouse->Slaughterhouse->Orcpit->Slaughterhouse->Orcpit->Orc Warriors->Haradrim Palace->Orc Warriors->Orc Warriors->Easterlings or Upgrade to lv.2->Orc Warriors

This build tries to keep the opponent busy with only a double pit spam without any Orc Archers in order to rush out, again, either Easterlings or Haradrim Lancers. Use your first Orcs wisely as you may very well need all of them to defend against battalions like SoGs, Loriens or Gundabads. Easterlings are the best choice if you expect some quick cavalry (eg. Wolfriders) or if you wanna creep and take an Inn early on.
This build is recommended vs. MotW, Isen, Elf and Angmar.


Fast Double Orc Pit

Slaughterhouse->Orcpit->Orcpit->Orc Warriors->Slaughterhouse->Orc Warriors->Orc Warriors->Orc Warriors->

This build is ideal to capture a neutral structure and to keep your opponent busy at the same time. Its also great to hold off any fast rax pressure or Dwarven rushes since no other build gives you that many units that early. However its also very fragile against cavalry starts since you cant move out on the map early or defend any new farms until you have Easterlings or a big mass of Orcs.


Four Pit Spam



IPB ImageIPB ImageIPB ImageIPB ImageIPB ImageIPB ImageIPB ImageIPB ImageIPB Image
Slaughterhouse->Slaughterhouse->Orcpit->Slaughterhouse->Orcpit->Orc Warriors->Orcpit->Orcpit->Nonstop Orc spam

The most macro-intensive build Mordor has, requiring you to never let a single Pit stand still.
This build works well vs. all evil factions, especially Mordor and Goblins as those are pure spam matchups in which it is all about CP and keeping your opponent busy. It is again up to the player when or if he wants to squeeze in some Orc Archers for defense or a strong push. You will notice how quickly you're gonna be maxed out with this build, so dont miss to build your 4th Slaughterhouse in time.

You can follow up all Orcpit based build orders with one of Mordor's other PBs like the Trollcage, Great Siege Works or Mumakil Pen aswell as with any Hero.


Haradrim Palace Start

Slaughterhouse->Slaughterhouse->Haradrim Palace->Slaughterhouse->Easterlings and/or Upgrade to lv. 2->Haradrim Lancers->Corsairs->Orc Pit->Corsairs/Easterlings->Orc Archers->

This build can be used in two ways, either to creep very early with Easterlings and to capture an Inn, or to rush out Lancers in order to crush the first 1-2 incoming enemy battalions and to follow that up with a strong Corsair push supported by some Orcs.
This build allows variation in terms of Easterlings numbers for creeping, in the composition of your army (Corsairs, Easterlings, Orc Warriors and Orc Archers) and when to expand.


Troll Cage Build

Slaughterhouse->Slaughterhouse->Orcpit->Slaughterhouse->Orcpit->Orc Warriors->Orc Warriors->Orc Warriors->Trollcage->Orc Warriors->Orc Warriors->Mountain Troll or Drummer Troll->Orc Archers->Orc Warriors

More of a fun build but with some experience, game sense and good micro definitely one that can work, now that the Drummers are used a lot more often. It's pretty important not to lose any Slaughterhouse here because that can delay your first Troll for quite a bit, so once again, position your Orcs wisely so you can quickly react to incoming troops.
Never stop harassing with your Mountains Trolls and coordinate their movement so that they can meet up with some Orcs at the front and heal themselves up by eating some.
Once it comes to a bigger fight, combine the Drummers roar ability with the Mountain Troll's splash damage when equipped with trees so you can deal a big amount of damage.
