Quest Text

"In the late evening hours, a small group of refugees sought refuge in the hidden Ranger-camp of Esteldín. These refugees were followed by a small group of goblin-scouts that quickly fled to Dol Dínen to bring word to their chief, Graug. Siniath the Ranger has asked you to seek out Graug and defeat him before he can spread word of the Esteldín's location. As you arrive near Dol Dínen, the first rays of false dawn can be seen overhead."

Background

Late in the night, a party of goblin-scouts discovered the location of the Ranger-refuge known as Esteldín. The goblins have fled to Dol Dínen, where you must dispatch them before they can bring reinforcements.

Breach and secure the main gate of Dol Dínen.

Breach either the western or eastern gate of Dol Dínen.

  • Do not allow a goblin-scout to escape

The courtyard has fallen. Now all that remains is to defeat Graug and destroy any reminants of the information that he has gathered.

Graug says, "The Rangers of the North will fall to the Iron Crown! Come forward flames...burn any of those who would attempt to escape."
Graug says, "Rain fire down upon these feeble weaklings."
A goblin scout was narrowly intercepted by the Rangers that followed behind you. With the battle raging, no other Goblins can escape or all will be lost.
