If Gondor has such men in the days of its decline, great must it have been in the days of its glory and rising.

–Legolas about Prince Imrahil in The Return of the King, The Houses of Healing

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.

Upon hiring a unit from this captain, the player is given the achievement "Friend of the Princes".


Dol Amroth Captain

A Dol Amroth Captain in his stable.

Dol Amroth captains spawn at the very back of stables (including those within fortifications). They also spawn at the top of watchforts.

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.


The minimum alignment required to hire units from a Dol Amroth captain is +200 with Gondor.

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.
