Yes-ish (I think) [In reply to] Can't Post

I always took it that Orcs could go out in the daylight, they just didn't particularly like it, but would be willing to go out if their hunt/fight took them there. Uruk-Hai's don't mind the sun at all and I think in the film-verse the Misty Mountain Goblins hate it more than the Orcs.

Yes, my username is terrible.

Probably with his ego he would drive his pack into any uncomfortable environment. Comfort is for wussies right??

They are all fighting in daylight at Moria in AUJ as well [In reply to] Can't Post


"Durin's Heir you may be, but even with one eye you should see clearer. If this is victory, then our hands are too small to hold it. We will not enter Khazad-dum. You will not enter Khazad-dum. Beyond the shadow of the gate it waits for you still: Durinís Bane. The world must change and some other power than ours must come before Durinís Folk walk again in Moria.Ē

I LOVE your signature quotation. [In reply to] Can't Post

Love it. I hope that some aspect of that matter makes its way into these much expanded films.

Goblins? [In reply to] Can't Post

Maybe only Goblins are the ones that are ineffective in the daylight, but Orcs can still come out, though they do not like it. Sauron's orcs still came out to fight in the daylight outside of Minas Tirith in ROTK.

I look at it this way... [In reply to] Can't Post

Common Orcs and Goblins refuse to go out in dayllight because it is painful and uncomfortable. Azog maintains a tight discipline on his followers; they may tolerate sunlight less well than the Uruk-hai, but they know better than to refuse.
