I'm inclined to agree with you there, Reyna.

Orcs just didn't NEED intelligence, the way that Elves or Men needed it. They could easily survive for a normal Orc lifespan, without a lot of intelligence. Men or Elves, on the other hand, needed to be smart to live as long as they did, especially in the Third Age.
But Melkor also was there, and he came to the house of Fanor, and there he slew Finw King of the Noldor before his doors, and spilled the first blood in the Blessed Realm; for Finw alone had not fled from the horror of the Dark.
