'If we can find both the location of the Heart of Fire and the secret to opening its doors, it could be that Zigilburk will return to us from the darkness.'
'I will ask the other dwarves of our expedition if they have come across any sign of Nâr-khelab. Perhaps someone has encountered some clue, though I am not hopeful.
'You must return to Katûb-zahar, the Word-hoard of Durin, and search for the secret to opening the door. The deep-claws you found will not make it easy, but you are strong enough to deal with them. Katûb-zahar is on the eastern side of the Great Delving, north of a large statue of Durin. Somewhere inside, among the deep-claw nests, you may find the secret to opening the Heart of Fire.'
Bori has told you of Nâr-khelab, the great forge at which the mithril axe, Zigilburk, may have been made. The way to the forge is blocked by some secret trick, lost to time.
