Bestowal dialogue

'Not everyone here does what he is told, <name>: Arngrim is one of these. He has been acting strangely for a while now, but he has not refused direct orders until recently. He was ordered to return to Gabilshathûr for guard-duty against the Orcs, just as I was...only he didn't!'

'He has long claimed that there was mithril to be found in this land, though every dwarf knows it be madness, but his delay in returning can only be explained by this cause: he thinks he has found some!'

'If you are willing to help me with this one last thing, I will be very pleased. Arngrim may have abandoned his senses, but he is still a dwarf, and we owe him this much. Look for him atop the ridges on the very southern reaches of Imlad Balchorth, to the north of this outpost.'


The dwarf Arngrim has vanished after telling some of the other miners that he was sure he knew the location of a mithril vein in the hills of Imlad Balchorth.

Objective 1

Arngrim is seeking mithril atop a ridge on the very southern reaches of Imlad Balchorth, north of Gabilshathûr.

Bothwar is concerned that Arngrim, slightly befuddled at the best of times, might have gotten himself into trouble in the southern reaches of Imlad Balchorth.

Bothwar: 'Arngrim should have returned for guard-duty instead of continuing his foolish hunt for mithril in these lands. Look for him north of here, atop the ridges on the very southern reaches of Imlad Balchorth.'
Arngrim: 'You! You are here to steal it, aren't you! My mithril! My beautiful lovely mithril! The voice has told me so. The true sweet voice of mithril! Nay, get back I say! Do not make me! Don't make me!'
  • Defeat Arngrim
Arngrim says, "You'll never take my mithril!"
You have knocked some sense back into Arngrim
Arngrim says, "Bless my beard, what came over me? Thank you for setting me right, friend!"

Objective 2

Bothwar is on the bridge in the middle of Gabilshathûr, south of Imlad Balchorth.

You have returned to Arngrim to his sense and should report back to Bothwar.

Bothwar: 'You have done well, <name>! It is good that Arngrim has abandoned his mad quest...for now, at least.
'Take this reward and rejoice at a job done well. You have earned it!'
