'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.
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 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.
