    This is already a thing? My dominated orcs glow green rather than blue once certain events have taken place. The Elven Wrath skill changes to Ringwraith along with the addition of raise dead. I'm not sure about the actual skill description for Dominations, etc, as I havent really read them since unlocking them, but there's definitely a different visual aesthetic.

    Their armor is still blue, the handprint is Green though. Elven Light is still named as such. Pretty much a number of skills reference Elven power and such when you no longer get that your power and ability from the Elven wraith but more the dead necromancy human wraith from the Ring of Power. Like Elven Agility and Elven Precision. Shadow Strider has Hammer of Eregion(which I have no idea what that is in the context of Middle-Earth since I haven't read the Simarilion) and then Waters of Lorien.

    You are right it is just description wise aside from it seem like you are just another "Bright Lord" since a lot of the coloring is still blue on the world map and War Map instead of a rogue Ringwraith. It would just seem to make more sense if that stuff was changed and reflected just as well.

    Eregion is where Celebrimbor ruled before he was a wraith. The "Hammer" part, I believe, references Turann, his forge hammer that you always see him with.

    Ah okay. Well in that case even more should be changed.

    That is another thing, in the wraith attack animations it is still Celebrimor's Hammer after you become a Ringwraith. Make more since that it change to Helm's Hammer. Like when he beats on a grounded orc or you "purify" a frozen foe.

    Seems all like oversights and rushed development without double checking things like that for continuity :/

    Yeah, that bothers me as well. It should be Helm's Hammer, and the sword and dagger should be Urfael and Acharn. Plus, he shouldn't carry Celebrimbor's wraith-quiver on his back. That makes no sense whatsoever.

    But then there's that wraith execution animation where he uses Azkar (Celebrimbor's bow) to point-blank shoot an Uruk in the face. Can't really replace that, since Talion doesn't have a signature bow. They could, if course just remove it, but that wouldn't be a great idea. And there's also the glaive.

    I mean, I know it's not Celebrimbor's ACTUAL gear, since it's just stuff that Talion conjured up through wraith-magic, but it's still annoying.

    I don't really mind the names of the abilities, though, like Elven Light and Hammer of Eregion. I wouldn't, however, say no to a name-change for those abilities. They would be welcome.

    I didn't even register the bow on the execute animation since I rarely see that one or the quiver being elven. That would need a fix too if they wanted to make the game a little bit more in line with the Wraith change. Though the sword and dagger whatever you are equipped, or are they static models until you draw them out and start swinging?

    The name changes would be nice, though it isn't like they are flashed every time you use them only reason it grates on me is cause I swap between Prospector and Discerning Eye so much lol and I just end up seeing them as I overlook my skills haha

    And also even after you have lost Celebrimbor I hear a number of Orc after domination still calling you Bright Lord :/

    I know these seem rather minor changes compared to some bigger issues(like that **bleep** clipping and invisible wall blocking...) but I also don't see how some simple text changes won't take more then a few minutes and would be something nerds that love Lord of the Rings and Middle-Earth(one could say too much haha) can smile and get props to keeping to the spirit of the lore. :D

    When you enter the wraith world, yeah, the sword and dagger appear as whatever you have equipped, but what I was talking about was chained executions/stealth kills. Next time you do one of those, pay close attention to Talion's wraith-sword/dagger. It still appears as the Bright Lord's Sword and Dagger.

    **bleep**, okay. It really seems they just did not get enough time to polish off this game :?

    I just got this and started playing a few weeks ago(after that July Update) I know there was a HUGE stink and anger over buying Orcs and drop chests like that after release haha
