Bestowal dialogue

'You can learn many things from the dead. But there is one troublesome shade called Emelin that resists all attempts at communication. Perhaps you may succeed where I have not.

'Emelin is...difficult. He is bound by pride and deems the living beneath contempt. If you can prove yourself to him, this might grant enough status in his eyes to lend you aid.

'Beware when you speak to him. He will try and win your trust with pleasant words, then send you off to your doom. You will find him at the ruins of Ost Haer.'

Background

While investigating the source of the wights of the Red Swamp, Radagast sent you to a man named Aric the Stone-speaker. Aric hinted that the dead might hold the answers you seek.

Objective 1

Emelin haunts the area called Ost Haer.

Aric spoke of a shade called Emelin. If you can prove your worth to the shade, he might give you the information you desire.

Aric the Stone-speaker: 'Emelin is a tricky fellow and keeps his secrets well.'
Emelin: 'Thou drawest breath and yet thou dost wish to speak with me? Thou are not like the man Aric. He is stone-wise and knows the secrets of this land. But even he I despise for his warm flesh and bright-eyed stare.
'Wisdom will be thine if thou are proven worthy. Dost thou dare face my warriors? If thou art the victor, then I shall help thee upon thy quest.
'Fail, and thou shalt not see the light of another day....'
  • Defeat Emelin's Men
Defeated Emelin's men

Objective 2

  • Talk to Emelin at Ost Haer

Emelin haunts the area called Ost Haer.

Emelin has tasked you with defeating the apparitions of his dead warriors. Succeed, and he will help you. Fail, and you may perish.

Emelin: 'Thou art still live to draw breath, though ragged and coarse it be. Rest thyself and hearken unto me.
'Terrible deeds I have done in the name of kings of old. While evil corrupted this land, my men and I stood by and did nothing, ignoring our charge. Now the Red Maid serves Angmar...something we swore to prevent. Iarwain Ben-adar cursed us to live as half-dead, such was our failure.
'Dost thou understand? I will help thee in order to break my curse, but thou must do more to secure my aid.'
