‘The Battle of the Black Gate is nearly done, <name>. We must fight for as long as we can, in memory of our friends and in defence of those endangered by Mordor. This may be Sauron’s hour, but we will make him earn it with blood!’
The Host of the West fights desperately for its survival as the forces of Mordor close in for the kill, and the Battle of the Morannon nears its end.
Foes encircle the Host of the West as the Battle of the Black Gate rages around you.
Elrohir stands on the north west side of the slag-hill and wishes to speak with you.
Mithrandir stands atop the eastern slag-hill while the Battle of the Morannon rages all about him. Elrohir has seen something on the horizon and has asked you to tell Mithrandir about this new threat.
