Bestowal dialogue

'I said that I do not know where lies the vault containing Celebrían's legacy, but it may be that I can help you to gain entrance when it is found.

'The riddle itself may be the key to the vault. If in your travels near Imladris you find a sealed vault, those words may offer you passage within. There should be a rock in front of the entrance. Place your hand on the rock and recite the verse.

'I would be surprised if the jewel is in the vale of Imladris itself as these carefully tended gardens and groves are too often frequented by the Elves for a vault to be easily hidden. I have no doubt it is close by, somewhere in the Trollshaws not far from Imladris.'


Glorfindel does not know where lies Celebrían's legacy for Arwen, but he has given you some advice which may help you to find it.

Objective 1

  • Collect Celebrían's legacy

The lost Elf-vault is somewhere in the Trollshaws in the vicinity of Rivendell. Once the legacy is found, return to Glorfindel outside the house of Elrond, by the waterfall.

Glorfindel advised you to place a hand on a rock by the entrance of the Elf-vault and to recite the verses of the riddle. Celebrían's legacy for Arwen, a white jewel, should be somewhere in the vault. If you find the jewel, return to Glorfindel with your prize.

Glorfindel: 'You have found the vault, have you not? The jewel should be within.'
Found Celebrían's legacy
Glorfindel: 'Yes, indeed, this is the jewel itself...Celebrían's legacy. Please bring it to Elrond, as it is his duty to give it to his daughter.'

Objective 2

  • Deliver Celebrían's legacy to Elrond

Elrond is in the library of Rivendell.

Glorfindel asked you to bring Arwen's legacy to Elrond.

Glorfindel: 'Celebrian's legacy should be brought at once to Master Elrond.'
Elrond: 'To think that the vault has remained sealed for so long past its time! Even those counted among the Wise can be foolhardy, it seems!
'But I must thank you for your perseverance, Master of Riddles. You seek the truth in all things, even though it brings you into darkness -- your skill and cunning bring you back out into the light again.'
