An Isengard Warg Rider from the second The Lord of the Rings film

The Warg Riders are wargs (wolf-like creatures) mounted by Orc warriors. They serve as the cavalry units for the Forces of Isengard. They are strong, moreso than Rohan's cavalry, but also slower and more expensive.

The Battle for Middle-earthEdit

In The Battle for Middle-earth, Warg Riders come in packs of five each.

Warg Riders should not be relied on too heavily in this game, as they can bankrupt a faction if few Slaughterhouses have been built, which will decrease their cost.

Requirements Edit

Trained from: Warg Pit

Cost: 700

Command Points taken: 15

The Battle for Middle-earth 2 Edit

In the sequel and its expansion pack, there are ten Warg Riders per unit.

Requirements Edit

Trained from: Warg Pit (In The Rise of the Witch-king, a Level 2 Warg Pit)

Cost: 500

Command Points taken: 60
