Ghûls are a pestilent species in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.

CharacteristicsEdit

Ghulseatin

Ghûls are vile creatures, that are often the target of Uruk hunting parties. While individually weak, they often attack in great numbers to overwhelm their enemies.

Ghûls have a weak melee bite or scratch attack, in addition to a spitting attack that can inflict poison. Their large swarming numbers make it difficult to move, and restrict Talion's ability to dodge the venomous projectiles of other Ghûls.

Talion can also use his Wraith Burn ability to brand Ghûls with the Lord of the Hunt downloadable content. Dominated Ghûls will fight for Talion, using their swarm power to chip away at enemy health.

The Ghûl Matron is a larger, tougher variety of Ghûl.

LocationEdit

Ghûls emerge from Ghûl mounds, which will only appear during the nighttime. They can be found attacking patrolling Uruks or Uruk strongholds. Their attacks can be prevented by an Uruk Torchbearer, who will attempt to illuminate a Ghûl mound in order to stop Ghûls from spawning.

With the addition of the Lord of the Hunt downloadable content, Ghûls can be summoned even in the daylight with the use of Ghûl Bait. By shooting Ghûl bait with Elf-shot, a nearby Ghûl mound will erupt and summon a swarm.

TriviaEdit

  • Exact etymology is not known, but Ghûl is likely derived from the Black Speech word gûl, which can mean evil spirit or phantom. The word is found in Nazgûl as well, which means "Ringwraiths".
  • Ghûls are only present during the night, unless baited.
  • Ghûls hunt in packs; if one is alone it will quickly call others to help it.
  • If listened to carefully, Ghûls make the "Gollum" choking sound during fights.
