Bestowal dialogue

'Bósi has assured me that the Hollin Gate will be excavated soon, but I am still worried that our expedition might be left outside Khazad-dûm for some days. The hills echo with the howling of wolves, but little else can be heard; how they make us shiver in the stillness! Hollin of old was full of life, but now even the birds seem suspicious and hostile.

'These hills are riddled with natural caverns, though none approach the splendour of even the unworked passages of Khazad-dûm. Unpleasant creatures have taken refuge in some of these, and I fear they will cause trouble for my people if we remain here overlong.

'To the south-west, across the dry riverbed of the Sirannon, is the cave called Filgogân. A company of half-orcs have an encampment deep inside that place; if you care to assist the dwarves of this expedition, you will thin their numbers and defeat their leader, Graug.'


The dwarf Sandar has asked you to aid the expedition by defeating the half-orcs; they have set up camp inside Filgogân.

Objective 1

  • Defeat Half-orcs in Filgogân (0/8)
  • Defeat Graug
  • Can only be completed before the Expedition enters Moria.

The cavern Filgogân is southwest of Sandar, across the dry riverbed of the Sirannon, in the southwestern corner of the surrounding hills.

Sandar has asked you to defeat the half-orcs that have encamped inside Filgogân, as well as their leader Graug.

Sandar: 'Filgogân is in the south-western corner of the surrounding hills; you will need to cross the dry riverbed of the Sirannon and continue marching south-west. The half-orc encampment is likely to be extensive, and Graug is sure to be deep inside.'
Defeated Graug

Objective 2

  • Talk to Sandar
  • Can only be completed before the Expedition enters Moria.

Sandar is at the small dwarf encampment northeast of Filgogân, with Bósi.

You have thinned the ranks of the half-orcs in Filgogân and defeated their leader Graug, and should now return now to Sandar.

Sandar: 'You have my heartfelt thanks, <name>! The half-orcs are not welcome in Hollin so close to Khazad-dûm, and now Graug knows it. Little good it does to him now, though, eh? Ha!
'You're a good <race>, <name>, and I am glad to have you on our side. May you prove as useful beyond the doors as we enter the Mines of Moria!'
