|Walkthrough & Notes|
This blade was taken from a fallen Orc in the Heathfells. While forged in the usual crude and utilitarian manner of the Orcs, it appears to be almost brand new.
Somewhere nearby must be a cave or encampment where these particular Orcs are forging weapons. If you can find it, you should be able to tell the Rohirrim of its presence so that they can take action against them.
While fighting Orcs in the Heathfells, you found a sword one of them dropped. While it bore the usual crude hallmarks of Orc-crafting, it was very nearly brand new, suggesting that Orcs must have a lair nearby where they are forging these weapons.
Orcs can be found in the northern Heathfells.
Cadfrith has asked you to defeat bands of Orcs that have crept into the northern Heathfells in hope that you can discover from whence they came.
Ondor the Dwarf is at the Orc-cave in the north-west Heathfells.
