The following deeds can be obtained by visiting this location:
-  The Ward of Esteldín - Special Event
- Dol Nendír was a small Arthedain fortress on the north-eastern edges of Meluinen, before it was razed by the armies of Angmar, long ago. — Deed text
- The fort was built to ward against the trolls that haunted the woods south of Meluinen. When the Witch King swept through the North Downs, he established a great camp in Dol Dínen. The forces of Arthedain held the passes at Dol Nendir and Nan Wathren for many weeks until the Witch King, along with the trolls, finally sacked Dol Nendir and forced Nan Wathren. The heart of Arthedain was now left open to the Witch King.
