|Walkthrough & Notes|
'Did you feel the change in the wind upon crossing the Black Gate, <name>? Everything in this accursed land is tainted. The earth, the water, even the air.
Allow me to introduce myself. I am Narthavron, master smith of the Noldor. I was present when the Last Alliance broke into this valley and defeated Sauron's army. I was filled with sorrow and anger seeing the atrocities they had committed here, and have made it my life's work to find a way to purge the corruption. I now believe I have the right tool to achieve this.
I have recovered one of the adamants of old, The Flame of Ancalamír. It will unravel any shadow-touched object to a physical residue that I call the Ash of Gorgoroth. I am then able to use it to fashion extraordinary equipment. I have a feeling you will be instrumental in the Conquest of Gorgoroth, and as such will be encountering many corrupted items in your travels. I have a proposition for you.
I will allow you use of the Flame. My assistants, the High-enchanters, will help you. You need only touch a piece of tainted equipment to the Flame and it will be reduced to Ash. I believe that Dwarf over there has been scavenging through the Orcs' forges. Perhaps he is willing to let go of something for this purpose. Find a piece of equipment, burn it to ash, and then return to me.'
Narthavron, master smith of the Noldor, has a proposition for you. For your help in purging the corruption of this land, he will craft powerful equipment for you.
