Bestowal dialogue

'This ancient weapon can be reforged at the hands of a Forge-master allowing its power to increase to match the skill of its wielder.

'Once reforged, it may possess the strength to face the creature that lurks within the Black Pool, <name>. You should bring it to the Forge-master for reforging, and mayhap your newly-refurbished blade will at last best the flesh of the cruel Watcher.

'Take this weapon to Snár and he shall reforge it anew, and then perhaps we shall see its true potential.'

- As your character level increases, your weapon may be brought to a Forge-master to be reforged.
- Reforging your weapon increases its power and may unlock additional tracery slots.

Objective 1

Snár: That is quite a weapon you have found! If you wish to reforge it and increase its potential, speak to me again and I will see that it is done!
'But know this, friend: the true strength of the weapon will come from the one who wields it! I believe you now have what you need to best the foes that stand arrayed against you.'

Objective 2

Dithalion: 'Now you understand your weapon's potential? Yes, it can now bear Heraldry.
'You must return to Hollin at once and show Ráthwald, the dwarf at the crumbling arch near Echad Dúnann, that you wield a great weapon. Surely it will give the dwarves of his company newfound hope.
'Go at once, friend! I deem that weapon has come forth from the very fibres of legend for this purpose.'

Objective 3

Ráthwald is at the crumbling arch near the camp of Echad Dúnann in Eregion.

Your weapon has become powerful indeed, perhaps powerful enough to use in battle with the Watcher before the Doors of Durin.

Dithalion: 'Go to the camp of Echad Dúnann in Eregion at once and speak to Ráthwald. He must see the weapon you now wield and the power that it may have against the creature of the Black Pool!'
Ráthwald: 'Welcome back, <name>. Did that weapon of the Elder Days prove worthwhile, or was it a fruitless chase?'
Ráthwald's eyes widen in surprise.
'This weapon has become even more powerful in your hands, <name>! Surely now we have the strength to stand against the horror in that fetid pool!'
