Bestowal dialogue

'I have need of your assistance, <name>. The stream that feeds the fens of Meluinen falls from the hills north-west of Lin Giliath. Beside this river, Orcs of the Ongbúrz tribe are threatening Lin Giliath from on high. An Orc Defiler, skilled in the use of poisons, joined the ranks of the Ongbúrz. His presence makes the Ongbúrz an even deadlier enemy.

'The defiler hunts the spiders in the eastern Kingsfell for their venom sacs and the Ongbúrz smear this poison on their arrows and blades. Slay the Orcs in Gurzlum and collect their venom pouches. I will make sure the pouches are never again used for evil purposes.

'While you are in the camp, put an end to the source of the vile poison once and for all by killing the Ongbúrz-defiler. Be careful, <name> -- these Orcs are brutal and without mercy, and you may have need of allies.'

Background

The Orcs of Gurzlum in the Kingsfell use spider venom to coat their blades and arrows.

Objective 1

The Ongbúrz Orcs can be found in their fortification at Gurzlum, on the rise beside the waterfall north-west of Lin Giliath.

Gandelin asked you to slay the Ongbúrz-defiler and return with the Ongbúrz venom-pouches.

Gandelin: '<name>, we must have some samples of the Orcs' poison so that we may create a cure for it.'
Defeated the Ongbúrz Defiler

Objective 2

  • Bring the Ongbúrz venom-pouches to Gandelin

Gandelin is back at Lin Giliath.

Gandelin asked you to slay the Ongbúrz-defiler and return with the Ongbúrz venom-pouches.

Gandelin: 'The venom pouches. I take it that the defiler was slain as well? Many lives will be saved through your efforts.
'I find it strange that the Orcs would hunt their spider allies. They make themselves stronger at others expense...and in the end, weakening the Enemy as a whole. Such is the way of evil things, for the spiders would not hesitate to drink of the blood of their Orcish fellows.'
