Middle-earth: Shadow of War Wiki

Climbing the Ranks is a Ratbag storyline quest in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.


As Ratbag is brought forth to be executed by a Captain, Brogg the Twin, Talion contemplates helping him before being reminded by the Wraith that they need him to deal with the Warchiefs. After interrupting the execution, and felling the captain, another deal is made to have Ratbag claim credit for the kill, and increase his standing in the uruk hierarchy.


  • Stealth is an ideal strategy for this mission. Using elevation to your advantage is something that you should consider.
  • Perhaps spending a couple points in a bow upgrade; either in Ammo capacity or focus, will help you execute enemies a bit more efficiently.
