Middle-earth: Shadow of War Guide – Ithildin Door Poem Solutions

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is now out, and is reviewed highly by most outlets, our own included. In addition to the fascinating Nemesis System, there’s a host of skills and collectible gear that can be obtained to make Talion a more powerful ranger.

Some of the best gear in Middle-earth: Shadow of War is hidden behind collectibles in the environment and puzzles. If you want Talion just dress up like a 1000-year old elven metalsmith, then you’ll want to open the Ithildin door in each region to get the legendary Bright Lord set of gear. Each door holds a single piece of gear, for five in total (you will not get the Legendary Bright Lord Rune from these doors).

Ithildin Fragment Locations

To find the six Ithildin fragments in each of the five regions, you’ll need to visit the Haedir and scout the maps. Once you’ve revealed the locations, visit each of them and enter the wraith world by tapping L1, and then hit R1 to reveal the rune. You’ll need to do a simple little puzzle where you twiddle each thumbstick until the word comes into focus. Do this at each of the six in a region to be able to unlock the Ithildin door.

Ithildin Door Locations

The Ithildin doors are located in each of the barrows. The barrows will be located when you use the Haedir to scan each region. Once you visit the barrows once, you can select the icon on the map to fast travel back to it. Once you have all six Ithildin fragments in a region, visit the barrow to begin the process of unlocking the door.

Minas Ithil Ithildin Door Poem Solution

In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie

We bear our banners aloft, boots like Drums

Our Cadence quick, our countenance dire.

For who in this dark, dream-haunted Land dares

Resist the righteous flame of Wrath

And Doom themselves to despair and death?

Reward: Bright Lord’s Armor

Cirith Ungol Ithildin Door Poem Solution

When the sun Rises, the shadows must retreat

Fleeing in fear from the Fires of dawn

The Night never knew that its end was fleet

As a Bright Lord bears Beacons of flame.

The sun rises, yes — but from the West it Shines

Marching e’er Eastward, e’er eternal, e’er bright.

Reward: Bright Lord’s Cloak

Gorgoroth Ithildin Door Poem Solution

They stalk and Lurk, then lash out so furious

Yet our Bulwark is proof against their rage

Our hard-ringed, hand-forged armor Impervious

To predations from the Powers of darkness

No matter how Vicious or how vile

To assail the Bright Lord is to falter and Fail.

Reward: Bright Lord’s Sword

Nurnen Ithildin Door Poem Solution

Let our foes fortify with Iron and stone

Let them summon scabrous Serpents, feral beasts

It will Avail them nought. Across the ages none

Have an army that wield such weapons, such Woe

Such doom against the dark-benighted Hordes who dare

Claim dominion over a Mordor soon bright.

Reward: Bright Lord’s Bow

Seregost Ithildin Door Poem Solution

Fair Mordor Slumbers, entangled in night

A vipers’ Nest of sorrow and strife

Poisoned by pernicious betrayal and blight

Trapped in the grasp of gelid corpse-hands

Yet behold! The Bright Lord Comes as a wildfire

Burning only what is Base, that all else may thrive.

Reward: Bright Lord’s Dagger
