- This quest is one of several regional Lost Lore quests. It is begun by finding any Bark-paper Page.
- These quests revolve around collecting audio journals that provide context to and depictions of historical events. Every time you collect pages of a tome, a short audio log will play. When all the pages are collected for a region, you will receive a completed text and a housing item that plays the entire audio.
You can read the complete lore text at Audio Journals: Lost Lore: Elves of Felegoth.
The pages needed to complete this quest are found at the following coordinates:
- Page 1 : [48.2N, 27.1W] (next to Thranduil’s throne)
- "Listen, and you shall hear the tale of strife and friendship between Elves and Dwarves, circling back over the long years, in the shape of a single emerald necklace."
- Page 2 : [47.4N, 126.0W] (near the lake inside the prisons)
- "It was a necklace of ancient make, wrought by the Dwarves of old. Fine and gleaming was the gold, encrusted with five hundred perfect glittering emeralds, maybe more. Perfect, wondrous, radiant."
- Page 3 : [48.0N, 125.4W] (inside the eastern prison)
- "A gift the emerald necklace was, given freely in times of good will. But friendship, far more fragile than any metal or gem, did not endure."
- Page 4 : [48.3N, 125.4W] (by the stream in the northern corridor in the prisons)
- "What memories remain of those first years are but fragments. The emerald necklace was lost in war, given in marriage, tainted by treachery, and cast aside in sorrow."
- Page 5 : [47.8N, 126.3W] (inside the western prison)
- "Gweriamir we named that necklace then, the Jewel of Betrayal, and no sign of it was seen or heard for years beyond counting."
- Page 6 : [20.8N, 36.9W] (next to a statue at the entrance of Felegoth)
- "Time went on. To the Great Greenwood we came, and, sorrow and misfortune ever at our heels, finally to caverned Felegoth, near Erebor, and so, near to Dwarves."
- Page 7 : [20.6N, 35.3W] (Tham Aeldés) (go east immediately outside of Felegoth. Follow path and then the stairs to the top.)
- "Thus an ancient bond was reforged. The eternal story of Elves and Dwarves took its familiar path: friendship, distrust, strife, and then, betimes, friendship again."
- Page 8 : Hall Under the Mountain, North end of the halls Upstairs floor, on the right side, near the bridge sitting on a table full of food.
- "On just such a peace-weaving visit did I come to Thrór's mountain halls. The feast was set, words of courtesy prepared - and then he stood, where upon his breast I saw the Gweriamir, gleaming green and gold!"
- Page 9 : [31.7N, 28.0W] (far north of Raven Hill, north-west of Erebor in the mountains, the quest "Carving Out A Home" leads you right to it)
- "It was given to him by Men, Thrór said. Men chanced upon it in some troll-hoard, he claimed. I was wroth and had no ears for such tales."
- Page 10 : [29.1N, 25.3W] (in front of Erebor eastern yard, by a tall stone column, due east of Stable-master)
- "Over that cursed necklace, blood was nearly shed that day. Truly, it may have come to blood thereafter, had not the dragon come and scattered the Dwarves far from Erebor."
- Page 11 : [19.9N, 36.7W] (near Radagast)
- "Years flowed by once more, and we tended to our woodland realm, forgetting friendship, emeralds, and grievances for the time. Yes, years ran together until one day, everything changed."
- Page 12 : [16.2N, 32.8W] (on the road from Loeglond to Felegoth between two statues at the forest edge)
- "The news came: the dragon was slain, there was a king under the mountain. And that day we remembered - remembered friendship, grievances, and debt."
- Page 13 : [29.0N, 25.9W] (in front of Erebor western yard, due west of Stable-master)
- "To Erebor from Mirkwood we came, armed, righteous, bent on reclaiming what was ours. I do not like to think what might have happened, if true enemies had not appeared."
- Page 14 : [ 27.2N, 26.4W] (north crossing in Dale)
- "The Battle of Five Armies it is called, but there were only two sides in that hour: Elves, Men, and Dwarves against the throngs of evil, until the Eagles came."
- Page 15 : Hall Under the Mountain atop the left stair after the Vault-keeper
- "After the battle, the dragon's hoard was divied up, and though I would have forfeited all our share for it, the Gweriamir went not to Elves but to Men."
- Page 16 : [25.1N, 25.0W] (Dale, behind (east) the tower in the Bells of Dale final boss room)
- "It was then that Bard, the leader of Men, did the wise and unthinkable: he broke apart the necklace, handing its gold to the Dwarves and to the Elves its gems."
- Page 17 : [25.0N, 25.2W] (Dale, south of the tower in the Bells of Dale final boss room)
- "Perhaps the age of Men is truly come. Or so it seems to me when the greatest wisdom is to break what you hold dear and to loose your shackles with forgetfulness."
