Welcome back to Swanfleet in Before the Shadow! I’m continuing my series of posts covering the deeds in this region. Today we’re homing in on the Slayer of Swanfleet Deed. Unlike original starter deeds, Swanfleet only has three groups of enemies you need to beat senseless: Uruks, Wargs and Brigands. You will visit all these locations – even the obscure ones – if you complete all the side-quests in Swanfleet. But if you just want to clear the deeds, then you’ve come to the right place. Let’s get on with it!
Randoms in the Wild
As you quest throughout Swanfleet, it will not be unusual for you to come across slayer deed targets on their own. Just keep your eyes peeled as your journey. Enemies defeated while questing reduces the amount you’ll feel like you’re grinding.
Warg-Slayer of Swanfleet
Coordinates: 56.8S, 21.6W
Before you think the Howlingstones and Fangsettle sound like dead certs, stop. They’re not! Bloodhollow does, however, have Wargs that contribute to your Slayer of Swanfleet Deed.
Coordinates: 54.8S, 22.3W
There are a few Wargs dotted here and there around these coordinates. If you’re approaching from the South, you need to go up the hill that looks over the river. They’re not at water level.
Coordinates: 43.7S, 17.9W
This is the second area during the quest The White Hand’s Approach. It’s North-East of Tham Celechir, North of the “ir” of the map’s label name.
How Many Wargs Do You Need?
- Stage 1: 40
- Advanced: 60
Uruk-Slayer of Swanfleet
Coordinates: 60.2S, 22.2WThe only non-Elven ruin with a huge number of Uruks is Sharmokal. It is a two-tiered fort of sorts. But as it has narrow routes around it – if you’re vaguely on-level, it will not be difficult to aggro a fair few each time you step further in. Be wary and check your gear is up to scratch if you did start your character in Before the Shadow.
Coordinates: 45.5S, 19.3WTham Celechir may not look all that big, but it is packed with Uruks. There is a side-quest here involving investigating a link between Uruks and Wargs. But you cannot progress Warg-Slayer of Swanfleet here as there are none (just cages).
Coordinates: 48.8S, 24.0WIf I’m honest, I was putting this here for completeness’ sake. Tham Lasgol is mostly prowled by Wood-trolls, with the occasional Uruk. But you can pick those off while questing. If you’re purposefully finishing Swanfleet Deeds, then go to the other places I’ve mentioned.
How Many Uruks Do You Need?
- Stage 1: 40
- Advanced: 80

Brigand-Slayer of Swanfleet
Just to clarify here, not every thieving non-orc-kind NPC is an official brigand. For example, there are Dunlendings among the Uruks of Caras Gelebren, but they don’t count for this deed.
How Many Brigands Do You Need?
- Stage 1: 30
- Advanced: 60

TL;DR Wreak Havoc During the Slayer of Swanfleet Deed!
Killing enemies is the right thing to do so long as you’re getting recognition and being paid, yes? Slayer Deeds make us into a sort of bounty hunter really! So go crazy, beat up a bunch of enemies and grab some Virtue XP and LOTRO Points. If you’re looking for more help with this region, see my Before the Shadow Guides. And, if you are just deeding, make sure you take time to look at your surroundings, relax and enjoy your time in Middle-Earth!
