Dol Amroth Captains are the leaders that preside over Dor-en-Ernil. From them, the player may hire units of Dol Amroth.
Like all trader NPCs, the Dol Amroth captain carries a silver coin in one hand. He also wears a Gondorian cape.
Dol Amroth captains will not attack any mob until provoked. When provoked, they will fight back using their Dol Amroth sword.
When killed, Dol Amroth captains have a chance of dropping bones, and, on a rare occasion, their sword or armour.
A Dol Amroth warhorn can be bought from the captain if the player has +1500 Gondor alignment and 2000 silver coins.
Starting prices for the various hire-able troops are listed below.
