Bestowal dialogue

'So you seek knowledge of the shaping tool of Celebrimbor and Maenadar the Craftsman? I know the story well.

'Alas, the tool will not be easy to find, if it even still exists. It was buried with Maenadar in Haudh Iarchith, which has become infested with wights of the vilest sort.

'Haudh Iarchith lies in the southern part of the Barrow-downs, and Maenadar's tomb is found beside it in the cradle of a larger mound of the barrow. Be wary as you journey...the Dead do not take kindly to visitors.'


Eglamír sent you in search of someone with knowledge of the Barrow-downs and the shaping tool of Celebrimbor.

Objective 1

The tomb of Maenadar can be found in the small barrow beside the entrance to Haudh Iarchith in the southern parts of the Barrow-downs.

Newbold Leafcutter told you that the shaping tool can be found in the tomb of Maenadar the Craftsman.

Newbold Leafcutter: 'The tomb you seek maybe alongside the entrance to the barrows of Haudh Iarchith in the southern Barrow-downs.'
Maenadar's Crypt: The tomb of Maenadar the Craftsman has recently been disturbed and any relics which might have lain there have been removed....
The tomb is empty of relics

Objective 2

You came too late to the tomb of Maenadar and found it despoiled. Angmar arrived first. You should return to Newbold Leafcutter to learn if he knows anything else.

Newbold Leafcutter: 'That's too bad, <name>. More and more foul travellers have been arriving here from the South, and it would be no wonder that some of them are grave-robbers.'
