|Walkthrough & Notes|
'Bróin told me about your capture of Mazog in Rushdurinul, and it was clear to me that if Mazog is to be brought to Dol Guldur in exchange for my son's freedom, we would need more powerful shackles to hold him. You were able to subdue the Orc-king when he broke free once; we cannot risk the necessity again.
'Therefore I commanded the smiths at the Heart of Fire to craft new shackles for Mazog. We have little mithril as it is, but they should have been able to make very strong bands indeed by mixing small quantities of it with other metals.
'Speak to Stóthkell in the Heart of Fire and see if the shackles are ready.'
Bósi has sent you to retrieve the mithril shackles being crafted in the Heart of Fire to contain Mazog.
Stóthkell is in the Heart of Fire, off the Way of Smiths, among the Silvertine Lodes.
Bósi has asked you to journey to the Heart of Fire to see if the shackles for Mazog have been made.
Bróin is in the Peaceful Path, located off Durin's Way.
You have collected the shackles to be used to secure Mazog for the journey into Mirkwood and should bring them now to Bróin.
Lenglammel is in Gwathrendath, the camp of Elves in the depths of the Foundations of Stone.
Bróin has sent you to tell Lenglammel that the dwarves will not bring Mazog through Lothlórien on their way to Mirkwood, skirting the wood instead. He also wants you to express his displeasure with the requirement.
