Combat Drain is an ability in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.

It allows Talion to collect Elf-shot and focus while in combat, without ending the Hit streak.

This can be beneficial to those who prefer to use the Detonate ability in combat, replenishing ammo and time-slowing focus, without exiting the combat zone.

Like Stealth Drain, this skill is automatically augmented with the Brand ability once that skill is unlocked.

Tips Edit

Combining this with the Double Charge ability and Brand allows you to instantly capture two orcs fighting you. Having a Berserker and Defender, a couple Archers, or even two regular orcs on your side can mean the difference between success and death.

Even better, a Wraith Stun and two critical strikes with Critical Strike 2 refills your charge, making it possible in the end game to capture an entire party of orcs.
