|Walkthrough & Notes|
This quest is challenging to solo (even if you are over-levelled) because in the second phase, once you've killed the 8 veteran guardsmen, you need to both burn 40 tents (by clicking on the bonfire to get a torch and then running past the tents) and simultaneously kill any NPCs which approach the bonfire (you will lose if 6 NPCs get to the bonfire). The NPCs begin to spawn as soon as you burn the first tent and come every few seconds.
Note that while you're carrying a torch you cannot use skills as it is a channel. Therefore it's a good idea to pop your speed buffs before clicking the bonfire. If you need to you can always r-click the channel to drop the torch.
'There is but one forge remaining in Eregion where the quality you wish to obtain may be acquired. After the early years of the Third Age, the old smithy fell to ruin, and in this day the Dunlendings have build a large fortified camp upon them. Thankfully, they remain unaware of the significance of the ruins, but their presence complicates matters.
'I think it is time we did something about that camp, and though we have not the forces for a direct assault upon it, I have a more cunning though un-subtle plan in mind.
'You must gather a small group of companions and prepare a midnight raid upon the camp! If you are successful, then making use of the forge should be within your grasp.'
Unbeknownst to the Dunlendings in Eregion, their largest camp has been built upon an ancient Elf-forge where some of the finest weapons of the early Third Age were once wrought. If use is to be made of this forge, the Dunlendings must be forced to retreat.
Perimbant has asked you to bring him an infused adamant to imbue the quality you desire upon your weapon. He does not, however, know where you might find such a stone.
Perimbant can be found at Echad Dúnann, west of the gates of Moria.
Perimbant has bidden you to speak with him when you are ready to depart for the Dunlending-camp, where you will conduct a midnight raid against the soldiers encamped there.
Perimbant can be found Echad Eregion, west of the gates of Moria.
You should return to Perimbant to complete the enhancement of your weapon.
