Quest Description:

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 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.

Arohir 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 Arohir.
