Bestowal dialogue

'[non-High Elf: It seems our paths once again converge, <name>!] [ High Elf: <name>! I am glad you have come.]'

'We battled through the ruins of Barad-dûr, and hitherto, we have silently pursued the Order of the Eye into these depths. Both Megoril and I have known "believers" of their kind before...for they first rose after Sauron's defeat upon the slopes of Orodruin. Fate proved their beliefs to be true, and now they will never be turned from the hope that Sauron shall once again return.

'However, their presence here appeared both unannounced and unwanted, and we believe it might be turned to our advantage. They have passed through the Black Pits, crossed the Abyss itself, and battled deep into the foundations of Barad-dûr all while chanting their hatred of an accursed foe - one they call: Greytooth. I know not what dispute they have with this Greytooth, but from their wild shouts and chants, I fear it concerns the Rings of Power. Even with their power fading, the Rings remain a symbol of status and strength to those that dwell in these lands.

'Do what you must to combat the Order and keep the forces of this Greytooth from the Rings, and we shall search for any sign of Thelaron. [non-High Elf: If he yet lives, he must be hidden in the depths of the Mordath.] [High Elf: If he yet lives, I beg that you join us in his rescue. At long last, our dear ally might be found and the quest the High King bestowed upon you might be completed, my friend!]

'We cannot face so many foes alone, but we have found secret ways through these depths. If you find your way into the deeper chambers of the Mordath, we can help you return to them swiftly.

'[non-High Elf: Let us hope we both find what we seek in this Abyss, friend.] [High Elf: Even in a place so dark, I hold hope that this shall be a day of happy reunions, <name>!]'

The Abyss of Mordath has sunken into the deepest depths of the Black Pits of Mordor and now Sauron's greatest secrets are laid bare.

Objective 1

  • Descend into the Black Pits of Mordor

Objective 4

  • Defeat Sagróg, the Bitter Warden, and enter the Ring-prisons in pursuit of the Firehorns
