This deed is bestowed upon entering the Thikil-gundu Instance.
All of the locations except 3 are found in your normal progress through the solo instance.
Two of them, Balb-gundu, the Frostdelf [23.1N, 135.1W] and the Depths of Akhatâr [23.6N, 134.9W] are easily found directly off the SE corner of the Smithies of Kall-khebâb - but the door only opens AFTER the death of the boss of the smithies, Karkasht Crow-feeder.
  • Note that you can go too far into the Depths of Akhatâr, and be defeated as you fall!
The third and last location: Bekâr-mazal, the Arming-chamber is accessable ONLY from the Resource Instance, which is not available until you have completed Quest: The State of the Expedition which takes you through all major quests in both Iron Hills and Ered Mithrin.
