Bestowal dialogue

'The sheer number of wights in Haragmar indicates the presence of gaunt-men, vile necromancers who serve the Dark Lord. In ages past, they dwelt in the Witch-realm of Angmar, but the White Council believed them all destroyed. Clearly, they were wrong.

'Only the strongest of the gaunt-men, the Gaunt-lords, have the power to summon the spirits of the Shadow Realm. The war-singers carry the sigil of their Gaunt-lord. Search the ruins in the far east of Haragmar, defeat these creatures, and bring me their sigils.

'We must learn which Gaunt-lord these creatures serve.'


Radagast is concerned with the cause of the corruption in the swamps. He feel that the wights are a symptom of a greater evil.

Objective 1

  • Collect sigils from gaunt-men (0/5)
  • Bring the sigils back to Radagast at Ost Guruth

The gaunt-men dwell in the ruins to the far east of Haragmar.

Radagast told you of the gaunt-men, necromancers in the service of Sauron, who are responsible for the emergence of these wights. He asked you to defeat the war-singers and bring him their sigils. He can then determine which of the Gaunt-lords they serve.

Radagast the Brown: 'I need the sigils of the war-singers if I am to determine which Gaunt-lord they serve. Seek the creatures in the ruins in the far east of Haragmar.'
Radagast the Brown: 'These sigils bear the mark of Ivar the Blood-hand. He is a powerful lord of the gaunt-men, and a dangerous and vile creature. It is he who is behind the corruption of the Red Swamp.
'Why would a creature such as Ivar travel so far from Angmar? Power, perhaps. But what drew him here?'
