Anniversary scavenger hunt guide – year 4

Orcs! We are besett by orcs on all sides! Grab your swords, bows and axes and venture across Middle-earth (yet again!) to slay the never-ceasing stream of orcs pouring from the depths. Also, reminisce about Aragorn, a.k.a. Strider, a.k.a. Elessar, a.k.a. Thorongil, a.k.a. The Dank King of Gondor. And to top it all off, have some skirmishes. These adventures await you in year 4 of the anniversary scavenger hunt.

This article is part of a series on the Anniversary scavenger hunt. Find out more here.

Year 4 Travels: Orc Clans (Recommended level: 60; Moria, Mirkwood access)

You must defeat 10 orcs of each clan listed. You will pick up remembrances (40 needed) as drops from the orcs. Remember that uruk-hai and goblins do not count for the quest. There are a couple places where clan-named orcs do not count for the deed, for example the Tarkrîp and Blogmal inside the Rift raid do not count, neither do the White Hand orcs inside The Grand Stair. Note that this is not an exhaustive list; there are likely plenty more places where orcs are hiding.

  1. At least for the Ongburz Orcs, (only ones confirmed so far) and possibly for other clans, the orcs you kill in Trifles skirmishes count to the Travels/Orc clan counts.


  2. Amazing guide…..if I could us it!
    For some strange reason, I’ve not unlocked Year 4 even though I’ve done at least one of each year. Might you have any idea what’s wrong? :/


      • Just tried looking, still didn’t have them. Going to try doing one more year 3 and if that doesn’t work, maybe I’ll submit a ticket. Thanks! 😀
