  • Talk to Léofward at the Rohirrim scout-camp

You should return to Léofward with the information provided to you by the Rohirrim scouts.

Léofward: 'This new is distressing. The Orcs are of little concern to me -- let them consume the Dunlendings' wood - but he companies of Dunlending warriors troubles me. From what you tell me, they will be converging upon the Mustering Tree, and that is an ill omen.
'despite the enmity the Draig-lûth have shown to their own countrymen I think it more liekly that both companies are meeting as allies to join the host gathering in Wulf's Cleft.
'I must think upon this problem.'
