Bestowal dialogue

'All the same, it is well that you defeated that servant of shadow, whoever he may have been. I wonder what brought him to Caras Tilion? Was he sent in advance from Dol Guldur, in overconfidence of their victory? Or in flight from their downfall? Or else...'

Radagast rails off in thought.

'But as I was saying, the river's corruption cannot have been his doing alone. Did you note any evil relics, any talismans of corruption, while you were there? Ah, but you were kept busy in wariness and combat.

'I think... perhaps... I would ask you to go back and see what else might be found in Caras Tilion.'

NOTE: You will swiftly travel back to Caras Tilion when you accept this quest.

Background

Radagast believes that another source hidden in the ruins of Caras Tilion darkens the Rhachló.

Objective 1

Radagast has suggested that you should return to Caras Tilion, in the mountains on the southern border of Eryn Lasgalen.

When you listen, you can hear the sound of running water

Objective 2

  • Find where the Rhachló flows through Caras Tilion

Caras Tilion can be found in the mountains on the southern border of Eryn Lasgalen.

The Rhachló must flow through Caras Tilion.

The waters are still befouled

Objective 3

  • Search for artifacts (0/8)

Caras Tilion can be found in the mountains on the southern border of Eryn Lasgalen.

Search Caras Tilion for dark artifacts.

This artifact is broken

Objective 4

  • Continue searching

Caras Tilion can be found in the mountains on the southern border of Eryn Lasgalen.

Search Caras Tilion for anything from Dol Guldur that isn't broken.

A strange pile of rust catches your eye
There is nothing inside the chest
Could someone have gotten here before you?

Objective 5

Radagast can be found at the tree nursery just outside of Felegoth.

You should return to Radagast and tell him all that you saw in Caras Tilion.

Radagast: 'Emptied and broken, every one? Would that it had been some helpful benefactor... but I fear it is not so!
'Not all mysteries are neatly tied up with a ribbon, <name>. If the evil that has poisoned the Rhachló is in Caras Tilion no longer, I shall know by watching the plants and rivers, not by running about after wild geese. The corruption will fade and we will call it Lúthir once again.
'That is my purpose and I will keep to it. Yours lies elsewhere, <name>. Go where you are needed, but keep open your eyes and ears. Who knows? Perhaps the riddle shall be solved one day!'
