Damrod was a Ranger of Ithilien, one of the most trusted of Faramir's men, and companion of Mablung.


Damrod led the night patrol that captured Gollum in the Forbidden Pool. He also fought in the battle for Osgiliath. Damrod retreated to Minas Tirith with all the surviving defenders. A few days later, Damrod was sent with Faramir and his 100 men to reclaim Osgiliath from the enemy. Damrod was among the dead; it is said his body was never recovered due to the overwhelming Orc invasion of Gondor. Damrod had little hope, for he believed "the days of Gondor are numbered, and the walls of Minas Tirith are doomed."[1]

The Lord of the Rings Online - Damrod

Damrod in The Lord of the Rings Online

In The Lord of the Rings Online Mablung and Damrod are first met in Osgiliath culverts, hiding from the enemy forces above. Having been separated from Faramir, they are unaware of his fate and send the player looking for sings of him throughout the overrun city. While some of those hiding eventually make a break for Minas Tirith (the player among them), Mablung and Damrod stay behind along with some other Rangers and spend the siege of the White City hiding under the enemy's feet. After the the Battle of the Pelennor Fields they are finally able to come out and join the Host of the West on the march towards the Black Gate. Upon entering the Wastes of Morannon, Damrod is chosen to lead the faint-hearted soldiers relieved by Aragorn and now commanded by Lord Duinhir towards Cair Andros through Ithilien wilderness. After King Elessar charges Steward Faramir with cleansing the evil of Minas Morgul and the Morgul Vale, Damrod joins other Rangers in a camp outside the dead city. He later leads a group of Rangers inside Minas Morgul itself, using the confusion among enemy forces to sneak between the guard towers beneath the enemy's notice.
