Quest Text


Scouts reported seeing a strange uruk, and overheard the Orc overseers under his command calling out "Chieftain Gûrsh" as he strode away toward the Library at Tham Mírdain. It appears that we have identified the leader of this war effort out of Angmar, and now we must do what we can to end this menace.

I would ask you to enter the Library at Tham Mírdain and challenge Gûrsh to a battle. If you can draw him out and defeat him, we will have effectively eliminated the leader of the northern forces.

We must be careful, however, not to attract the attention of the Orcs and Dunlendings from the South, for we do not have the strength to combat north and south should the suddenly join forces. The more stealthy we are, the better our chances to best all foes. Gather no more than two companions for this assault, for our hope is in secrecy. Before you make your assault, you should speak with Maegamiel.

Objective 1

Chieftan Gûrsh, leader of the northern forces of Angmar, can be found in the Library at Tham Mírdain, just to the south-west of Echad Mirobel.

Ornras of Echad Mirobel has asked you to take a small band of fighters and unseat Chieftan Gûrsh, which will hopefully weaken the enemy presence from the north without drawing the attention of the south. Enemies have been scavenging the Library for forgotten history that might be useful to their cause.
