Bestowal dialogue

'We had no way of knowing the Gate would be in this state, <name>, and didn't think to bring extra pick-axes with us. Still, this area has many stout trees which should provide ample strong branches, perfect for pick-handles. We'll sharpen the metal heads ourselves and attach them to the new handles.

'I sent my son Bori to collect stones upon which we could sharpen our axes, but he has yet to bring me any. Gather branches from the bases of trees and help my son collect sufficiently sharp stones, and return to me when you have done both. Bori is probably wasting time with his friend Bróin at the stairs east of here. Those two care more for the spinning of tales than they do for working!'


Bósi has tasked you with collecting the materials necessary for producing new pick-axes to replace the ones broken by the dwarves at the Hollin Gate.

Objective 1

  • Help Bori with the task Bósi gave him
  • Collect thick branches (0/6)
  • Bring thick branches to Bósi

Thick branches can be found at the base of trees in the area around the Hollin Gate. Bori is likely talking to his friend Bróin at the stairs east of Bósi.

Bósi has asked you to collect thick branches with which to make sturdy pick-handles and to help his son Bori with the task of gathering sharpening stones.

Bósi: 'It is very important that we have the branches needed to repair the pick-axes. How else can we remove the rubble that blocks the Doors of Durin?'
Complete the quest Keeping Sharp for Bori

Objective 2

  • Talk to Bósi

Bósi is west of the stairs leading up to the fetid lake in front of the Hollin Gate.

Bósi is waiting to speak with you now that sufficient materials for new pick-axes have been gathered.

Bósi: 'You have my thanks once again, <name>. All the materials have been gathered, and my dwarves will begin working on new pick-axes right away.'
