Cutting the Lines is a sword quest in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.


"Descending on the enemy camp, he cut off the Dark Lord's supply of new recruits. On that day, the trainees learned only of death."


  • Enter the Training Grounds
  • Kill all trainees (20+)
  • Bonus: Execute 5 Uruks


  • There is a lot of intimate combat in this mission. Using your Wraith Flash or Wraith Burn will help immensely.
  • If you're going for the bonus, be sure to execute Uruks as soon as possible. Since the trainees are weaker than normal Uruks, you may find that you have killed all of them with your Wraith Flash before you have executed the required five.
  • Shooting bait will really help with crowd control as well. The Caragors can distract the group while you pick apart the remaining Uruks.
