Ringwraith - Level 60 Armour.jpg

The Ringwraith Gear Set is one of the obtainable Gear Sets featured in Middle-Earth: Shadow of War. This particular Gear Set has a high focus relating to Undead Orcs and Necromancy.

Unlocking Pre-Requisites:


The Sword of the Ringwraith Set is obtained automatically upon the Completion of Act III, Shadow and Flame, and replaces (or more technically, adds) benefits previously not available to Talion.


Like the Sword, the Dagger of the Ringwraith Set is obtained through the completion of the first section Act III, whereupon it automatically becomes available to Talion as he begins his assault on Minas Morgul, replacing his original default dagger Archarn, from the beginning of the game and adding new buffs to the weapon.


Unique amongst the Ringwraith Set, the Ranged weapon is not acquired at the beginning of the second section of Act III (Talion's siege of Minas Morgul) but actually by defeating Helm Hammerhand in the mission, Fire and Fury, from the Eltariel Quest line. It also replaces none of Talion's previous Gear.


The Armour piece of the Ringwraith Set is acquired by reaching the Siege of Minas Morgul in Act III, and replaces Talion's previous/default armour set from the beginning of the game, and adds new benefits.


The Cloak piece of the Ringwraith Set is earned by reaching section II of Act III, Shadow and Flame, and replaces Talion's original cloak, Ioreth's Embrace


The Rune of the Ringwraith Set, like all other pieces save for the Ranged Gear Piece, is earned by reaching Section II, Act III when Talion begins his siege to reclaim Minas Morgul.
