|Walkthrough & Notes|
'I have a favour to ask you, <name>, if you are willing. We have discovered three captains of the Ongbúrz who command the lower ranks of the Orcs and goblins in Dol Dínen. If these captains are slain, it may throw the lower ranks into confusion.
'Enter the encampment of the Orc-host in Dol Dínen, south-east of Esteldín, and slay the Ongbúrz captains Thorgal, Shum-batar, and Dombrî. They were last seen among the Warg-keepers.
'If I were in your place, I would not attempt this alone. Gather allies, or you will not likely succeed.'
A great host of Orcs spilled through Ram Dúath, driving the Men of the North Downs from their farms. Esteldín, home of the few remaining Dúnedain of the North, was spared discovery. It is from there that the Rangers begin to plan their counter-offensive against the black tide of Angmar.
The Ongbúrz captains Thorgal, Shum-batar, and Dombrî were last seen among the Warg-keepers in the Orc-camp in Dol Dínen, south-east of Esteldín.
Arohir told you of the discovery of three captains of the Ongbúrz tribe who command the lower ranks of the Orc-host: Thorgal, Shum-batar, and Dombrî. He believes that their deaths will throw the lower ranks into confusion. He recommends you do not attempt this task alone.
Elúr awaits word of your success at his encampment south-east of Esteldín.
Elúr provided you the names of three Blogmal captains amongst the Orcs in Dol Dínen where the Warg-keepers patrol. With these captains slain, you should report back to Elúr.
