Bestowal dialogue

'The mine-shaft may be fairly empty of good prospects, but perhaps the very tunnel around us may provide a better yield. Will you search the surrounding area once more, and again I will look at your harvest for signs of mithril.

'My heart yearns to see just the slenderest vein! The hope such a discovery would kindle in my folk is beyond description, <name>.'


The dwarves of the Silvertine Lodes mining expedition have a universal hunger for the discovery of mithril, or true-silver in the common tongue.

Objective 1

  • Harvest ore from deposits in the southern tunnel (0/8)

Ore-deposits can be found in the tunnel near Sori, and in the south-heading passage of the Silvertine Lodes.

You should search nearby for deposits of ore, and bring samples back to Sori for inspection.

Sori: 'How is your collection coming along? I would love to have a look when you've gathered enough of a sampling.'

Objective 2

  • Bring the ore to Sori

Sori is in the southern tunnel of the Silvertine Lodes, perched on a wooden platform.

You should bring the ore you gathered to Sori so that he may inspect it for mithril.

Sori: Sori again scrutinizes all of the ore you collected from the surroundig tunnels.
'Nothing. Alas! i will have to search more on my own, but my hopes are rather low right now. Regardless, you have my gratitude, <name>. I am certain you did your best! Perhaps there is no true-silver left to uncover....'
