Dol Guldur Faction Plan [WIP]
Posted 15 December 2018 - 06:24 PM
Durubdyr (meaning “animal ruler”) was an orc with an affinity for the various dark beasts that were attracted to the darkness of Dol Guldur. No other orc in Mirkwood was as skilled at taming the vicious wargs of the forest, or at handling the great spiders in their nests. The Necromancer discovered this talent and placed the creatures under his command, preparing them for the day when they may one day be unleashed on the Free Peoples of Middle Earth.
Appearance: mainly wearing bones, furs and pelts. A few spider webs on him. Maybe a few “trophies” from animals (teeth and claws maybe?). Is scarred. Wields a long weapon (spear) with a whip hanging from his belt.
Alt Appearance: could be a corrupted, scarred Beorning. Similar clothing/weapon aesthetic.
Level 1: The Beastmaster – hero deals extra damage to mounted units, mounted heroes and creatures (warg, trolls, mumakil, drakes, spiders etc.). Passive
Level 3: Warg Pen – summons a small enclosure with 2 wargs that attack nearby enemies. Relatively short cooldown. Enclosures would have low armour. (maybe also add Dark Presence to the enclosure)
Level 5: Vicious Creatures – wargs in the target enclosure will permanently gain reduced crush deceleration and will gain health per strike.
Level 8: Animal Tamer – target cavalry/monsters are unable to trample for a small time OR have much higher crush deceleration
Level 10: Beast Rush – all nearby spiders and spider riders will trample better and will deal increased damage for a time.

Will Khamul for this faction wear the armour he has in BOTFA?

My suggestion for Dol Guldur Spellbook:
Maybe you could rename Krimpul as Ungwûk, bc Krimpul just mean ties, while Ungwale means "torture" & ûk "all".
PS: Btw, the Necromancer could summon Adûnaphel, this Nazgûl was summoned to help Khamûl attacking Lórien & Woodland Realm, and after the Pélennor Fields battle with the Witch-King defeat, he came back to Mordor to defend Morannon with the eight remaining Nazgûl.

Is it just me or does Dol Guldur not have a lot of units? Especially powerful units that aren't affected by the weakening effect thing? I love the units that you have shown and talked about so far, but I feel like there's something missing. Maybe a magical unit? Or something Beastly? Something that isn't an undead Orc variation, cause it seems like there are enough of those kind of enemies. I dunno. Maybe it's just on paper that it reads as a bit paltry. Btw, do you plan on giving them walls? Since Dol Guldur is basically a fortress that would make sense, no? Also if you don't, that would mean like that there very few evil factions with walls and that seems a bit unbalanced?
In any way, thanks for all your work on this and I hope to see and learn more of the faction in the near future. Keep up the cool stuff!

If there's still any place for some other heroe for Dol Guldur, maybe you could add other spider heroes, Drûzhag, the Beastcaller and/or Ashrâk, the Spiderkin, i think both of the goblins could fit for Dol Guldur, although they're a little combo together.
