Gath Forthnír is a settlement located within the area of Himbar in Angmar. [10.9N, 23.9W]

Tucked within the eastern mountainsides of the area, this hidden Ranger outpost stands as a bulwark against the forces marching forth from Carn Dûm. Aside from Tármunn Súrsa, this cavern is the last place of refuge before reaching the fortress city of Angmar. The outpost can be reached via a winding rampway behind a small lake on the border of Nan Gurth. The stable-master for the camp, as well as a small group of Rangers, can be found at the turn in the rampway overlooking the area. Following the hill further leads to the cave's entrance, guarded by the Ranger, Areneth.

The cave is a series of sub chambers inhabited by Golodir, Laerdan, and Lorniel, all of which are centered around a main chamber characterized by a crystal clear pool of water. Despite the large Ranger presence, this outpost is the headquarters of the Council of the North, a faction made up of a mix of races. Elves, dwarves, and even a handful of hill-men of the friendly Trév Gállorg tribe make refuge within the cavern's walls. Representatives of the faction task adventurers with dealing with the threats of Himbar, Nan Gurth, Carn Dûm, Urugarth, and Barad Gúlaran.

A mailbox can found by Areneth, at the entrance to the cave. A milestone, Bard, Provisioner, Supplier, and various other vendors as well as a slew of questgivers can be found inside the cavern. The rangers camped outside by the stable-master and task board give out quests for the various quest instances such as the Battle for Aughaire.

Note: This location is the destination for the Hunter Skill Guide to East Angmar.

A small band of brave souls, including a small contingent of Rangers, has created a well-hidden outpost here on the very doorsteps of Carn Dûm.
From here, they send spies to watch the movements of the Enemy’s Armies and offer aid and rest to those brave and strong enough to lead the fight against the False King. — Deed text
