Bestowal dialogue

'<name>, I have a task for you. The Orcs in Dol Dínen, to the south-east, are fortifying their position. They dig trenches, tear down trees, and are burning enough of them to cover the area in a heavy cloud of smoke and ash.

'One of our scouts, Elúr, has already headed southwards to scout. Would you be willing to join him?'


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

  • Find Elúr and speak with him
Elúr: 'The Ongbúrz are dreadful foes, <name>. I have been watching as they amass at our borders, south in a land called Dol Dínen.

These Orcs bear badges that tell much about their rank and their purpose. If you could collect these, I believe we will have a better understanding of the collective Ongbúrz tribe.'

Objective 2

Ongbúrz Skirmishers can be found among the goblins who patrol the outskirts of the Orc-host in Dol Dínen, south-east of Esteldín.

Elúr told you about the skirmishers of the Ongbúrz tribe, and has asked you to slay them in hopes that the army at Dol Dínen will be deterred.

You have collected several Ongbúrz badges, indicating that the enemy force in Dol Dínen is stronger and more organized than any in the North Downs would wish.
