Quests to open the Skoironk Resource Dungeon


  • The small Ranger outpost in the Slag-hills [34.4S, 3.5W] contains a Milestone, Mustering Horn, and Camp Site Fire.
  • The Resouce Dungeons of Skoironk and Towers of the Teeth are interrelated and interlocked.
  • The quests from Candúr open the Fellowship Crafting Dungeons, not the solo dailies!
  • The quests Thurindol open the Solo Crafting Dungeons.
  • There is a Gondorian Artifact-icon.png Gondorian Artifact inside the door of Carchost which starts a quest. Upon completion of this quest you are sent back to Thurindol, who gives you three more quests for the Tower of the Teeth.
  • Within the two daily crafting instances (Tower of Teeth and Skoironk) you can obtain reputation items via mob drops, quest completion, and an optional chest.
Resources are obtained primarily from Mob drops and quest rewards - only Dagorlad Scrap Deposits and the occasional mushroom, exist as nodes.
You MUST acquire the Lock-picks BEFORE you start the daily or you will be unable to open the chest. Lock-picks are obtained by bartering flowers (20 Violet Extracts and 20 Golden Extracts) with the Herbalist (Host of the West).
To open the Skoironk Resource Dungeon for solo (the solo crafting daily) the following quests need to be completed:

Camp of the Host

  • The quests of Dûm Boha vector you to Thurindol at the Small Ranger Camp in the Slag-hills.
There are two entrances to Dûm Boha -
from the second level of Haerondir [36.9S, 7.9W]
from the "main entrance" off the plain behind Hareondir [36.1S, 6.5W]
If you first obtain the Bane of the Serpent from Gladhir in Haerondir and then proceed into Dûm Boha via the path behind him, you will receive the remaining landscape quests as you enter the camp.
If you enter Dûm Boha from the "main entrance" off the plain behind Hareondir, you will get all quests bestowed as you enter.
