Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is a massive game with plenty of areas to explore, and a ton of gear to acquire. One set of gear, the Bright Lord’s Armor, can only be obtained by solving several poem puzzles on doors hidden throughout the game world. Today we’ll show you how to solve all the Ithildin puzzles and unlock the full set of the Bright Lord’s Armor in Middle-Earth: Shadow of War.

All Six Ithildin Locations

Once you first get settled into Shadow of War, one of your very first missions is going to be to purify your first Haedir. These towers work as the main means of traveling quickly in Shadow of War, and you can learn more about Haedirs and how to unlock fast travel in Shadow of War by checking out our helpful guide. Once you climb up the first Haedir, you can use it to spot the six Ithildin hidden within the region.

After you have found the Ithildin, you should be able to place a marker on each one, making finding them much easier. Once they are marked, head towards them, and then activate your Wraith World power to spot the door in the game. From here you’ll have to collect it, and then head on to the next one that you marked on your map. Continue doing this until you have collected all six of the Ithildin. Now it’s time to move on to the next part of the process.

How to Find the Barrows

After you’ve found all of the Ithildin in the region that you’re located in, the Barrows will be marked on your map, allowing you to easily find it. Make your way to the Barrows, and then activate the Wraith World to find the Ithildin door poem that you need to solve.
