|Walkthrough & Notes|
'An Orc gains nothing by being truthful to us, but may derive satisfaction by bringing us sorrow. I believe Lothrandir survives, but if he is not brought into the light soon it may become too late to save him. North of the tower you will find an entrance to depths below Isengard. Search the watery deeps for some news of Saruman's captive. He may yet live, if we hurry.'
Gandalf does not believe that Lothrandir perished beneath Isengard, and wants you to search for him.
An entrance to the Isengard Depths can be found north of the tower.
Gandalf believes Lothrandir may still live, and wants you to search for news of him in the caverns below Isengard.
Golodir also searches the Isengard Depths for news of Lothrandir.
Surly scavengers can be found throughout the Isengard Depths.
Golodir has asked you to defeat the scavengers that lurk within the flooded depths of Isengard, for one of them might know of Lothrandir's location, if the Ranger still lives.
Golodir is in the flooded depths beneath Isengard, waiting to hear the results of your search.
