Bestowal dialogue

'It has taken exceptionally powerful giants to bend the will of the mammoths of the Misty Mountains. If these champions are defeated, we will not need to fear the alliance of giant and mammoth until more champions arise. Gather what allies you may, for these champions are truly mighty, even among the already-fearsome giants.

'The mammoths bear the signs of three giants. These champions have never treated with me, but I know their marks and their reputations. Madfurr is a master of unarmed warfare and lives in the cleft east of the Giant's Needle. Few dare pass near the stones he has set aside for his protection from the elements. Other giants are awe-struck by Sukdyr's skill with his great club -- look for him somewhere within the paths north-east of the Giant's Needle, among the rocky chasms.

'Kulgurz is the last, and of him I know less than the others. Beware his skill from afar! It is said that he can strike a mighty aurochs dead with a single toss from a distance of two miles. Kulgurz strides along the slopes high above the Giant's Needle, looking for trouble. May fortune smile upon you, <name>. You will have need of it.

'Oh, the Giant's Needle itself? It is a natural black rock spire in a small bowl-like valley. You will find it in the heart of the Giant Halls of the Misty Mountains, some distance southeast of an old Dwarf stronghold called Gabilazan.'

Background

Goldahor identified the giants who have mastery over the mammoths of the Misty Mountains and has asked that you put an end to this dangerous alliance.

Objective 1

The Giant's Needle is in the heart of the Giant Halls of the Misty Mountains, southeast of the Dwarf stronghold of Gabilazan.

Madfurr is east of the Giant's Needle, in a cleft of the rock. Sukdyr is north-east of the Giant's Needle, among the stony paths. Kulgurz is on the high slopes above the Giant's Needle.

Golhador has told you the locations of the powerful giant-champions responsible for taming the ferocious mammoths.

Golhador: 'These mighty champions among the giants walk the mountains near the Giant's Needle, <name>, and your allies will need to be strong indeed to defeat them.
'Madfurr is a master of unarmed combat, and lives in the cleft east of the Giant's Needle. Sukdyr's skill with the club he wields is legendary -- look for him somewhere within the paths north-east of the Giant's Needle, among the rocky chasms.
'I know less of Kulgurz, but I know to beware his skill from afar! He strides the slopes high above the Giant's Needle, eager to fell his enemies even from a great distance.'

Objective 2

Golhador is in the High Crag.

Golhador will be pleased to hear that you have defeated the mighty champions responsible for taming the ferocious mammoths.

Golhador: 'You have filled me with amazement, <name>, and I marvel at your ability to best the giants' mighty champions!
'I have no doubt they will raise new champions against us, but you have purchased us some time, brave <race>, and for that we of Imladris are grateful.'
