This is the trophy that will take the most of your time and is the most difficult trophy by far. In fact, it is more difficult than any trophy in the base game. Here are the required objectives for this trophy:Kill 5 Beastmaster War-chiefs and 20 Captains (in other words, kill all leaders and do it without dying)Kill 10 Captains with MonstersAttain 13,000 pointsComplete in 40 minutesAt first glance, this trophy seems impossible earning a 9/10 or 10/10 on the difficulty scale. The forums on multiple sites were abuzz with how to do this seemingly impossible task. Then someone, and honestly I do not know who or I"d give credit, came up with the brilliant idea of using the game mechanic of a Riot to cut down on the time. Using this as the root idea, I was able to achieve this trophy.There are many different strategies everywhere for how people have achieved this trophy. Initially I was strongly considering posting video, but for one simple reason I am not going to do that: the locations of all captains and their weaknesses is random! So even if you have someone"s video, you cannot mimic what they are doing because your captains will not be in the same locations with the same weaknesses. Outside of that, all of the actions in the video are going to be normal game mechanics that you already know how to do.I will post in detail in the spoiler below exactly how I achieved this trophy. Even with these suggestions, the trophy does not leave a lot of room for error. It took me around 5 hours to complete.The primary objective is what controls the "ending" of the mission, so once you have 5 War-chiefs and 20 Captains registered your "test" will end. At the conclusion screen, if you have achieved all 3 of the bonus objectives then your score will post to the Elite leaderboard (if you have an internet connection) and the trophy will pop.To start Test of the Wild you must go back to the Main Menu of the game, then select Play followed by Trials of War and then Test of the Wild. This will start a new test that will be saved in your current save slot.This brings up another crucial element that I strongly suggest you use for your playthrough: control your ability to save your current state in Test of the Wild. Unless you really want a super serious challenge, save at key points to change the difficulty of this trophy from a 9/10 to a 5/10.As you should know by now, there is no easy in-game way to make individual saves as it uses an auto-save function. The good news is that the game always auto-saves whenever you fight a Captain or a War-chief (win or lose), and it saves immediately at the conclusion of the fight. So if your time management is going good, this is the time to exit the game and save to USB/cloud.To save your game state, exit out of your game and save your Mordor game files to either a USB stick or your on-line cloud storage. To reload your save, copy from USB/cloud to System Storage, start the game back up, and then select Continue while in the Trials of War menu.It is entirely possible to achieve this trophy with one playthrough using "saves" and the Riot game mechanic. In my case, I did do it in one playthrough but I reloaded from saves many times. Here is what I did:As the test begins, immediately look for the Power Struggle in your game map that is closest.Make sure that you Brand the Captain in this first fight so that you can use him for Intel on a War-chief.Reminder: To Brand hold

to grab the Captain, then press to Dominate, then press again to Gain Intel.Select one of the unknown War-chiefs to find Intel on. If it is not Ûgakûga Graug Rider or Zûgor Beast Butcher I suggest restarting the Test as I found these two to be the best to use for the Riots.Immediately go after this War-chief. It is crucial that you successfully Brand this War-chief. However, instead of using for Gain Intel press

instead to Command him to start a Riot against one of the other War-chiefs.Note: I very strongly recommend using a Graug to take out all bodyguards of a War-chief BEFORE branding or killing the War-chief. It saves massive time and you need the easy Monster kills. A Graug eating a War-chief does NOT count as a Monster kill of a "Captain".Kill the other 4 War-chiefs. At the Riot conclusion, always run up and re-brand your Branded War-chief so that you can Command him to perform the next Riot. Immediately after that, press

to get easy points from whatever branded Uruks are remaining.You should have your branded War-chief (still alive) and the other 4 War-chiefs dead by around the 15-18 minute mark. In my playthrough I reached this at 18 minutes with 8 Captains killed and 7 Monster kills.After killing the last War-chief, have your branded War-chief begin starting Riots against Captains.At this point I did all of the available power struggles, especially the ones that have 2 Captains in them. You really want to keep the Captain kills to 90 seconds or less.Continue using Riots if there are no Power Struggles left.To be safe you will need to have 11,000 points before your last Captain. You will get 1,000 points for completing the bonus objectives and 1,000 points for completing the test.When you get down to killing the last Captain, make sure that it is a Riot so that you can immediately kill your branded War-chief to complete the test. You do not want to waste time summoning him.Comments:The clock is paused while in any of the menus so use this to your advantage.You will not have Wraith speed (it is locked) so use Shadow Strike as much as possible to close long distances as fast as possible.Heavily use saves. Always performs save immediately after you kill a captain and there are no more close by. Do not run to safety or finish killing the other enemies; just exit the game and go make a save. This alone saved me about 20 seconds per Captain. Seems obvious, but it wasn"t to me at first.Another thing about being able to save, take advantage of the ability to run around and figure out where all of the "random" Captains were placed and their vulnerabilities. You can reload your save and still know exactly where they are at, thereby saving a large amount of time finding them.Always go for the Power Struggles that are closest to a Fast Travel tower.You can use and abuse the game mechanics in that if you "save" immediately after defeating a captain or War-chief before bringing up the game map, on "save" reloads you can change the random location that a new Power Struggle begins. For example: you defeat a captain, then make a "save". After you have reloaded the game, open your map. If there is a new Power Struggle available it will now randomly find a location on the map. The type of struggle will not change, but its location will. This only works while the struggle is "New" and you have not saved its randomly determined location. This is handy if you are trying to get a Power Struggle next to an easy Graug bait for a Monster kill.I strongly recommend using Graugs for the Monster kills as it is way easier and they last way longer when surrounded by Uruks.Try to get the Monster kills out of the way as fast as possible; look everywhere for Graug baits.Zûgor is a pain to kill quickly. I strongly suggest using Flame of Azhâr (activate with

when you have done enough bow kills and your bar is full). This gives you unlimited Elf-shot and Fire Arrows for 15 seconds.If you need more points, I strongly suggest Shadow Mounting Caragaths or Graugs, then dismounting and killing them with

. They give 100 base points, plus whatever small bonus they might give. Use Fast Travel to reset the enemies.I found running to Captain locations to just plain take too much time, but if you happen to find a cluster of Captains that you can quickly run to then by all means do that instead of using a Power Struggle or Riot.The following notes are my saves for a time frame of reference.
