If you’re starting the Dol Amroth City Watch grind from scratch, the library will be the first faction you encounter and the first you will receive reputation with. By comparison to the other factions, the landscape quests for the library, which take place at the large corsair staging site south of Dol Amroth, are considerably easy. The enemies aren’t even level 100. However, the training exercise quests are some of the most difficult you’ll encounter. This where you’ll test your mettle against three signature-difficulty corsairs at the same time which has caused many a hero to throw down their arms in frustration.
The corsair camp of Hashadîr lies outside the southern gate of Dol Amroth. This is also the site of some lower level questing which you can do simultaneously if you plan it right.

Training exercise quests
When starting the DACW quests for the first time, you’ll be redirected to the library faction to see if you’re worthy to defend the city. Complete these quests and receive tokens for reputation with the library faction, and this will also open up the rest of the landscape quests.
These quests are unique in that this is the only faction that does not require you to kill a certain number of bands of corsairs. Just the boss will do, but I’m sure you’ll run into enough corsairs anyway to fill your quota.
If attempting the Guardians of Dol Amroth quest and not getting anywhere, first clear the door to the library then pull the three vandals, kill one, enter the library to drop aggro then step out and continue killing.
The objectives for Freedom’s Thief and Securing the Past are randomly spread throughout the library interior. Your best friend here the “Select Next Item” hotkey (default: Shift+Delete) and the “Select Next Enemy” (default: Shift+F10). These will cycle through nearby objects and enemies within a certain range so you can find what you’re looking for.
