Bestowal dialogue

'All that you have done for the Eglain proves your honour. I shall not doubt your intentions again, but I shall ask one more favour of you.

'I am sure you have seen that a variety of spiders stalk the shadows of Amon Ros. You may also have seen the elders of this vile brood. It is they who are to be feared the most.

'I ask now that you return to Amon Ros and slay the elders. They have lived for too long, preying upon the helpless, and must be destroyed.'


Since long before the Orcs and undead crept into the Lone-lands, the Eglain have had to deal with the menace of spiders dwelling within the ruins across the lonely stretch of Eriador. Now as the spiders are driven from the depths of their ruined homes, they creep closer and closer to Ost Guruth and threaten the folk who dwell there.

Objective 1

The elders of the brood can be found in Amon Ros, west of Ost Guruth.

Tortwil asked a favour of you: that you return to Amon Ros and slay the elders of the spider-brood.

Tortwil: 'You will find the elders of the spider-brood within the ruins of Amon Ros. Some are harder to find than others and will move from place to place. Hunt them down and destroy them.'

Objective 2

  • Speak with Tortwil at Ost Guruth

Tortwil awaits your return in Ost Guruth, east of Amon Ros.

Tortwil will be pleased to hear of your victory against the spiders of Amon Ros.

Tortwil: 'This news will ease the suffering of many. Though it seems a task without thought, we are not a people accustomed to venturing against such foes.
'You are a hero to the Eglain and deserve all that you shall receive in reward.'
