Quest Text


The Black Númenórean that sits in Ost Elendil is named Balhest. He is a powerful foe, but he is not the only evil that resides now in that place. We have learned that the passage into the throne room where Balhest commands his forces is guarded by the Cargûl known as Guloth. If you are to defeat Balhest, you will first need to do something about Guloth.

He possesses some terrible power over creatures of shadow, drawing strength out of the darkness with which he commands them to his will. You must somehow sever Guloth's ability to strengthen the fell spirits under his command.

Ost Elendil lies across the bridge of Ariant. Go there only if you are able and willing to face not only Balhest, lieutenant of Amarthiel, but also Guloth the Cargûl. If the battle has drawn me elsewhere by the time you return, report of your victory to Captain-General Daerdan at Echad Garthadir, the Ranger-encampment here in the city.

Objective 1

The Cargûl Guloth is inside Ost Elendil, beyond the bridge of Ariant on the highest level of Annúminas.

Legrindavor has warned you that Balhest is defended by a fearsome Cargûl, Guloth by name, who wields power over creatures of shadow.
