Quest Involvement


Zanthrug is first seen patrolling the ramparts around an altar. In order to engage him, a character with the Uruk-general's armour (obtained from Master of the Black Tide) and the follow-up quest A Leader Unveiled will need to place it on the altar.

Zanthrug will proceed to mock the fellowship, and send in two waves of mobs before entering battle himself.

Note: There is currently a bug that will cause the encounter to occur multiple times in a row if more than one person places the armour. It is therefore recommended to designate one player to place it; everyone will still get credit for the quest.


"It seems you have taken down one of my brethren. Do you think to goad me into battle with your meagre show of strength?"
"It is true, however, that you are trespassing on Angmar. For that, I think we will have a bit of fun. Boys, get them!"
"I'll rip you in half, <race>!"
"For Angmar!"
"Die now, scum!"
"My death changes nothing!"
