|Walkthrough & Notes|
'Upon returning to these halls after the trials of battle, I learned of something surpassingly strange: the spiders of these woods are no more. Not by us were they slain, nor by any hand, from all we can tell. They have simply vanished, it seems, leaving only their web-covered dens.
'Any person in my kingdom, Elf or not, who unravels this mystery shall earn my regard and generosity.'
The spiders have vanished from all over Mirkwood, and King Thranduil wishes to know why.
Known spider dens can be found throughout Eryn Lasgalen.
You should search the woods and remaining spider-dens for spiders.
Thranduil can be found in the halls of Felegoth.
You should return to Thranduil.
