Bestowal dialogue

'The banners you brought confirm my fears, [name]. The Orcs are not some ravaging horde sent hither without direction.

'These banners belong to three tribes. Each tribe performs a different purpose. At Nan Wathren, the Orcs attack Trestlebridge relentlessly, trying to force their way into Bree-land. At Gosgenethad, the Orcs are the defenders of Fornost. South at Dol Dínen, they prepare for a long occupation.

'We must know their strengths and their intent. The camp in the south, at Dol Dínen, seems to be the most fortified. You must infiltrate this camp and find their orders. I would not go beyond their outer camps.'


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.

Objective 1

The orders may be found at one of the outer camps in Dol Dínen, south-east of Esteldín.

Concerned by the coordinated efforts of three Orc-tribes in the invasion of the North Downs, Daervunn has asked you to seek out their orders.

Daervunn: '<name>, I need you to find those orders! Surely they lie somewhere in Dol Dinen.'

Objective 2

  • Bring the Uruk-orders to Daervunn

Daervunn may be found in Esteldín, northwest of the camps at Dol Dínen.

Return the Uruk-orders to Daervunn in Esteldín.

Daervunn: 'This appears to be written in the Black Speech. There are none here that understands this accursed language. Those that do -- our chieftain Aragorn, Mincham, and others -- are abroad.
'You have done well to get this, <name>. There is more I must ask you to do, however.'
