    Noldor Clans

    The Ñoldor, meaning those with knowledge, are one of the elven clans. According to legend, the clan was originally called the Tatyar and founded by Tata, the second elf to awake at Cuiviénen, his spouse Tatië and their 54 companions, but it was Finwë, the first Ñoldo to come to Valinor with Oromë, who became their king, and led most of them to Valinor. The Ñoldor who went to Aman speak Quenya, or more specifically the widely-known Ñoldorin dialect of it. However, fully half the Tatyar refused the call of the Valar, and became counted among the Avari.

    They were also known as Deep Elves, Gnomes, Golodhrim, Aulendur and Golug. The singular form of the noun is Ñoldo and the adjective is Ñoldorin. They were the Second Clan of the elves in both order and size, the other clans being the Vanyar and the Teleri. They typically had dark hair (except for those who had Vanyarin blood, most prominently the members of the House of Finarfin).

    The Ñoldor are accounted the greatest of the Elves in lore and smithcraft. Fëanor (son of Finwë by Míriel) was the greatest of their craftsmen.

    The Noldor have rebuilt the town of Dale, with the help of dwarves from Erebor. Such a feat gives access to dwarven goods for elves and vice versa. It was also used as a means to attempt to better realtions between the factions.

    In this town elves can specialise in swordsmanship and axe mastery. Although elven trainers are mostly sword masters and are not very potent in wielding an axe, it is possible for elves to train under axe masters from Erebor.
