"Dûrmarth walked in the front row of the Guards, right behind the Sorcerers and the Witch-king. He walked among them as one of the Men of Carn Dûm, even if he was different from those. While they had already been born into the rule of the Witch-king, he had only recently begun his service. Many did not trust him and were envious of him, because he had enjoyed such a good education among the Sorcerers. But he had prevailed against them, and now belonged to the personal guard of the Sorcerers."
The Shadow of Angmar, Chapter 1: The Invasion of Angmar (Angmar-RPG)

Dûrmarth is the Guardsman and Enforcer of Angmar, the Captain of the Shadow Guard. He can change between acting as a Guardsman (Hero Supporter) or as an Enforcer (Hero Killer). 

Dûrmarth, as the old Angmar RPG of ModdingUnion states, was born a man of Arthedain, called Atauko. After his father's death, Dûrmarth and his mother moved with his uncle, who was abusive to them. After a while, he ended up killing his uncle and he had to flee, his mother getting killed in the process. After that, wolves were about to eat him, when a man, who turned out to be Gulzár, killed them and saved him. 

Atauko was brought to Carn-Dûm, where he was given the name Dûrmarth by the High Sorcerer of Angmar. From then and onwards, he could not think of anything but his hatred for Arthedain. Dûrmarth became a loyal follower of the Iron Crown, learning to tame Wolves and Trolls (losing his left ring finger in the process). He swore to protect the man who had saved him, and after a while, he ended up becoming the Captain of the Shadow Guard of the Witch-king himself.

Strategy

Dûrmarth takes an important role in Angmar as he has the double role of a Hero Supporter in his Guardsman form and a Hero Killer in his Enforcer form. Thus, he is one of the Edain Mod's most versatile heroes, being able to help in different ways across the game.

Overall, Dûrmarth is a great hero in both of the roles he can take in Angmar's strategy. Using his abilities in tandem can provide you with a massive advantage on combat against hard to defeat heroes. It should be kept in mind, though, that each set of abilities shares a cooldown, so it wouldn't be possible to use abilities that are unlocked at the same time next to each other, since they will enter the cooldown period as soon as the other ability is used. Thus, Dûrmarth's abilities should be used wisely and kept for the best chance to use them, when they will give you the most advantage.

Trivia

  • Dûrmarth's (now removed) quotes came from the Witch Slayer Hero from "Heroes of Newerth" that were originally said by Van Helsing (Hugh Jackman), Count Dracula's hunter from the movie of the same name.
