Bestowal dialogue

'It is time, <name>. We know that the Dunlendings at Brôntrig intend to attack us here at Forthbrond. Instead, we will take the battle to their own doorstep.

'Your task will be to create a diversion while our forces position themselves to take the Dunlendings by surprise.

'Speak with me when you are ready to depart.'

WARNING: This is a solo instance and cannot be completed in a fellowship.


The Rohirrim forces prepare to launch a pre-emptive strike against the village of Brôntrig in hopes of confounding the Dunlendings' own attack plans.

Objective 1

  • Talk to Answith

Answith is encamped near the tower west of Brôntrig.

You should speak with Answith when you are ready to depart for Brôntrig.

Answith: 'We will enter the village in the dead of night and create several distractions, which will allow our men to push along the southern road into Brôntrig and take the Dunlendings by surprise.'
Complete the Instance: Shot in the Dark instance quest.

Objective 2

  • Talk to Ardwyn at Forthbrond

Ardwyn is at Forthbrond, north of Brôntrig.

You should return to Ardwyn and speak with him regarding the defeat of the Rohirrim at Brôntrig.

Ardwyn: '<name>, the routing of the Rohirrim forces at Brôntrig is a grim reminder of the resourcefulness of our enemies. I fear that this may shake the morale of our warrior.'
