|Walkthrough & Notes|
Upon completing the mission, you will find a "Mission Reward" chest containing:
'Follow Bilbo's trail into the Misty Mountains, my persistent friend. And stay alert as you go, for those paths are dangerous, especially in winter. It may be that Kúblagat is not the only spirit of the storm haunting those slopes!
'Good fortune go with you, and bring Bilbo unharmed back to us!'
'Bilbo may have left tracks behind as he journeyed north... unless the recent snows have buried them!'
If Glóin is right, Bilbo Baggins may have ventured north into the Misty Mountains instead of returning to Rivendell.
If Bilbo did come this way, some of his tracks may have survived being covered by the recent snows.
More of Bilbo's tracks may lie to the north, hopefully not covered by the recent snows.
A small campfire to the north-east of the tracks my conceal some sign of Bilbo.
Perhaps Bilbo evaded the goblins at the campfire and journeyed further north. You should search for more tracks in the wide-open space at the top of the slope.
A goblin-camp to the north-east lies directly in the path of the last tracks you found. What was Bilbo thinking?
A dying goblin lies among the slain. Did he see Bilbo?
Celeblír says, "Bilbo has been captured by goblins? This is worse than I feared!"
