Bestowal dialogue

'Do you see that shattered statue just in the centre of the hall, friend <race>? According to records and carvings we have found, it once depicted a brave dwarf by the name of Helgi Goblinbane.

'The goblins of Moria have been systematically smashing all images they can find of him -- I am not even sure that this isn't the last remnant of his legacy! It was nearly whole when I first arrived, but just recently a party of goblins reduced the statue to the state in which you now see it. They carried off the pieces, boasting that they would become objects of ridicule in goblin-camps throughout the Mines.

'If you are prepared for a dangerous and noble undertaking, go look closely at the statue's base, so that you will recognize its pieces when you go seeking them.'

Background

Uxi fears for a wonderful statue of Helgi Goblinbane, a dwarf of great renown once, whose name resonates among the goblins the way Azog's does among the dwarves.

Objective 1

  • Examine the statue

The statue base is in the courtyard hall just to the south-east of Uxi.

Uxi told you to examine the statue base so that you will be able to recognize its other pieces.

Uxi: 'It is a pity that such a great work of art would be shattered so. is there aught you can do to aid in its recovery?'
The statue is missing most of the body from the waist up

Objective 2

Uxi is at the Chamber of the Crossroads, north-west of the statue.

You should return to Uxi for more instruction.

Uxi: 'So, do you think you can recognize the statue's pieces now, if you were to run into them elsewhere?
'I think the rest are in goblin and Orc-camps throughout Khazad-dûm. I would start by heading east to Jazârgund -- that's the direction in which the goblins who smashed the statue fled.'
