|Walkthrough & Notes|
'If Orvar will not listen to reason and collapse the only entrance to this passage, sealing the corruption within, we must find its source and destroy it. Speak to Nimpheleg about finding this source and dealing with it.
'We have seen Globsnaga Orcs deeper within Buzun-ghâr, and fear that they will soon climb up to this place. Have they been corrupted by the wilting rot, or is there some other cause of their affliction?
'These questions are secondary to the most important matter, <name>: that they be defeated before they can do us any harm. Destroy them as you undertake Nimpheleg's scheme for cleansing the source of the wilting rot.'
Corunothiel and the other Elves of Lórien sent to assist the Iron Garrison are concerned by the corrupting rot that spreads within one of the newly-excavated passages.
Nimpheleg is at Lossathrod, the campsite within Buzun-ghâr, located off Durin's Way. Globsnaga Orcs can be found throughout Buzun-ghâr.
Since Orvar has refused to seal the newly-excavated passage, Corunothiel has asked you to work with her friend Nimpheleg to locate and destroy the source of the wilting rot within Buzun-ghâr, and to defeat the Globsnaga that have been affected by or drawn to the corruption.
Corunothiel is at Lossathrod, the encampment of Elves and dwarves at the top of Buzun-ghâr.
You have dealt with the wilting rot within Buzun-ghâr and should speak now to Corunothiel of your successes.
Orvar is at Lossathrod, the encampment within the passage of Buzun-ghâr, located off of Durin's Way.
Corunothiel said that a message for you was delivered to Orvar while you were in the depths of Buzun-ghâr, and you should speak to the dwarf to learn its content.
