"Heralded by the demise of the Gaunt-man Gúrdring, Glorfindel fears the return of Ferndúr the Virulent to the Trollshaws. Hoping to strike before Ferndúr's strength grows too great, Glorfindel has enlisted your aid in quelling the threat posed by this ancient Gaunt-lord of Morgoth."

Background

Elrond believes that there may, in fact, be one of the dreaded Gaunt-lords behind the evils in the Trollshaws.

Objective 1

Glorfindel is at the entrance to Ost Brandras.

Glorfindel is determined to deal with the Gaunt-lord Ferndúr who is causing evil to stir up in the Trollshaws.

Glorfindel: 'The time has come, <name>. If this Gaunt-lord's fell powers are truly the cause of the evil in the Trollshaws, he must be dealt with.
'We cannot allow him to muster any more of the dead and bolster his strength.
'Ready yourself, <name>. None shall keep us from this task!'

Objective 2

Glorfindel is determined to deal with the Gaunt-lord Ferndúr who is causing evil to stir up in the Trollshaws.

Glorfindel says, "We must hurry, <name>!"
Glorfindel says, "I sent eight warriors to scout the altar where you encountered Gúrdring..."
Glorfindel says, "...for it is likely that Ferndúr himself has claimed Ost Brandras."
Glorfindel says, "Let us move swiftly to find them!"
Glorfindel says, "Long has it been since Ferndúr last revealed himself to the eyes of the living."
Glorfindel says, "Yet, the disease that grips the Trollshaws can be the work of no other."
Glorfindel says, "Hold, <name>. There is an ill haze in the air ahead."
Glorfindel says, "Something is not right here, <name>..."
Glorfindel says, "What has Ferndúr done to you?"
Glorfindel says, "Rest easy, my dear friend..."
Glorfindel says, "A Gaunt-lord is not easy subduead... my warriors knew who they faced, and their training failed them still."
Glorfindel says, "Ferndúr's contagion has stripped everything from them..."
Glorfindel says, "...withered to naught but a husk."
Glorfindel says, "What new terror is this?"

Foul Fell-spirit says, "Why did you send us to our deaths?"
Foul Fell-spirit says, "You knew we stood no chance..."
