Orcs and Orc Chieftains are level 3 creatures of Stronghold town. They are recruited from the Orc Tower.

"Armed with throwing axes, orcs and orc chieftains have an effective ranged attack. At close range, their low speed and defensive values, and the ranged attacker hand-to-hand damage penalty, make them vulnerable." RoE manual

Heroes with a specialty[edit]

Jabarkas Jabarkas the Barbarian has orcs as a specialty, which increases the attack and defense skills of any orcs or orc chieftains for each level attained after 3rd level and gives them a speed bonus of 1.

Horn of the Abyss[edit]

Tactics and info[edit]

The information found in this section is subjective. Remember that each and every situation in H3 is different and may call for different strategies and tactics.

Slow and easy to kill when engaged, they should be upgraded immediately, since 4 speed is too little for the adventure map. They are also the only Stronghold shooter for a long time, since you will obtain Cyclopes only later on, usually even after obtaining Behemoths.
