|Walkthrough & Notes|
'At last, the preparations are complete. The Malledhrim, the Golden Host of Lothlórien, are now ready to cross the river Anduin and assail the forces of Dol Guldur.
'The Golden Host is to have two objectives: to bring battle to the Enemy in Dol Guldur at a time of our choosing, before he can attack the woods of Lothlórien in force, and to exchange Mazog, the prisoner of the Iron Garrison, for the captives in the dungeons of Dol Guldur.
'Your aid has been requested for both of these aims. Speak with Braiglinn, by the hythe up the slope from the docks of Lothlórien. He will recount to you details of each plan.'
The time has come for the Malledhrim, the Golden Host, to cross the river Anduin and assail the forces of the Enemy in Dol Guldur.
Braiglinn is at Imlad Lalaith, on the shores of the Anduin, in Lothlórien.
You have been told to speak with Braiglinn about the crossing of the Golden Host into Mirkwood.
Calengoth is at the docks near Imlad Lalaith, on the shores of Anduin, in Lothlórien. Once you have made the crossing, you will find Fuirgam working to secure a foothold in Mirkwood.
Calengoth, the launch officer, is waiting to see you to one of the boats that will carry you across Anduin with the first crossing. Once you have done so, seek out Fuirgam, the Elf in charge of securing a foothold for the Elves.
Alfirimbes is waiting to speak with you in Echad Sirion.
The Elves have established their foothold on the dark shores of Mirkwood and are ready to begin their push into the forest.
