Bestowal dialogue

'Weapons of this make may have a long and storied history, <name>. Its tale grows ever with the felling of evil foes -- the more servants of evil this weapon cuts down, the more deadly it becomes.

'Only a skilful few can read the tale of a weapon from its craftsmanship. I refer you to one who can further aid you: the Elf Dithalion by the forges in Rivendell. He is wise and learned in many things, including the study of ancient weapons.

'If Dithalion cannot help you, he will surely know another who can descry the lineage and powers in a weapon of this artistry.'


Background

You have received a weapon from the Elder Days that the dwarves discovered in a hidden cache, and you must now delve for its secrets.

Objective 1

Dithalion is by the forges in Rivendell.

Hundi bid you to show your new weapon to Dithalion, an Elf of Rivendell who will be able to help you make use of your weapon.

Dithalion: 'You have come a long way to be here, <name>. What business could bring a valiant <class> such as yourself here to the Forges of Rivendell?'
Dithalion looks at the weapon and grows still, his eyes wide in wonderment.
'This is a relic of the Elder Days, my friend! Such a weapon has an unmatched potential to grow in power, its storied legend growing with your own!'
  • Legendary Items can be enhanced in a number of different ways as you adventure in Middle-earth.
  • Their base stats can increase along with yours as you level.
  • They can be slotted with a wide assortment of traceries.
  • These traceries can be further enhanced by runes.

Objective 2

Dithalion: 'I see that you have been given some traceries. You should apply one of them to your weapon to further customize its abilities! Once you have done so, speak to me again.'
  • There are a variety of traceries that can be added to your legendary item.
  • Among them are Heraldries, Words of Power, Words of Mastery, and Words of Craft.
  • They are slotted onto your items in much the same ways as Essences.

Objective 3

Dithalion: 'A good choice, <name>!. Inscribing traceries onto your weapon will enhance your skills, and will often help turn the tide of battle.'
Dithalion: This weapon is still not strong enough to defeat the Watcher in the Water, friend <class>, but it might become so. I will tell you how this may come to pass.'
