Bestowal dialogue

'You saw big Uruk fort, yes? That's Kala-gijak. Many, many Uruks there led by Brogmaush. He big and tough. You strong, but not strong enough to attack fort alone. Got an idea.

'When The Eye go away and mountain blow up, new people come into swamp. Not Orcs, more like you. They chased me and threw spears! I see them fighting Orcs and Uruks. They don't like Orcs, you don't like Orcs, so maybe they can be your friends too? Might help you beat Brogmaush. See, I make good plans!'


Now that you are immune to the diseases of Agarnaith, Viznak wants to get started in tackling your real foes. However, you won't be able to take on an Uruk fort all by yourself. Luckily, Viznak knows of someone who might help.

Objective 1

  • Talk to Faeron

Faeron can be found in Viznak's hideout.

You should talk to Faeron.

Faeron: 'Hmmm. What people could he be referring to? Possibly Nurnhoth? Regardless, I will take any allies I can get in this hostile land.
'I will meet you there. I travel faster alone.'

Objective 2

  • Talk to Viznak

Viznak can be found in his hideout.

You should talk to Viznak when you are ready to leave.

Viznak: 'I lead you to them, but they throw spears at me, so I don't stay. Make them friends! If you lost, we go north-east to new pass in mountains.

Objective 3

  • Find the potential allies


  • (Optional) Walk with Viznak

Viznak mentioned that the potential allies can be found in a mountain pass to the north-east.

You should either walk with Viznak or find the mountain pass on your own.

Follow Viznak to the mountain pass to the north-east
Viznak: 'Ready to go? I got lots to tell you on the way!'
Viznak says, 'Ready? Really ready?'
Viznak says, 'Let's go. Don't get lost!'
Viznak says, 'Got to get wet. You get used to it.'
Viznak says, 'So, want to know why I don't like Orcs? Why I'm alone?'
Viznak says, 'Boss Orc didn't like me. Too smart, didn't obey orders.'
Viznak says, 'When they want to get rid of you, you get thrown in Agarnaith. Blight Lady take you into Seregost, you never seen again.'
Viznak says, 'Well, I show them! Crazy Orcs, Uruks, Bat-people: none of them get me! I'm smarter than all of them!'
Viznak says, 'You gonna help me take 'em all out, even Blight Lady.'
Viznak says, 'Close to Kala-gijak now. Watch out for Uruks.'
Viznak says, 'Big fort; right? Gonna need lots of help.'
Viznak says, 'Uruks serve Blight Lady now, but didn't before.'
Viznak says, 'Nazgûl guy, Black Blade, used to live in Seregost. Don't think Blight Lady liked him, hehe!'
Viznak says, 'Guess he went away with Eye, then Blight Lady take control.'
Viznak says, 'Almost there. Trees get big back here.'
Viznak says, 'We close now. Just keep walking that way. I gonna go back now, keep Rhadrog company! Hehehe!'
Three figures guard the mountain pass. They appear to be men!
Faeron says, 'Drúedain?! How is this possible? Approach slowly; it's likely they've never seen anything like us before.'

Objective 4

  • Attempt to talk to Ghai-buri-Sêk

The mountain pass in north-east Agarnaith is guarded by Ghai-buri-Sêk.

You should attempt to talk to Ghai-buri-Sêk.

Ghai-buri-Sêk: The Drúedain appear shocked as you approach. Faeron must be correct: these people have never seen anyone that was not one of their own or an Orc of some kind. However, their spears are still aimed at your chest. You will need to prove your are an ally before they will let you pass.

Objective 5

  • Talk to Faeron

Faeron can be found at the mountain pass in north-east Agarnaith.

You should talk to Faeron and decide how to proceed.

Faeron: 'As I thought. We will need to earn their trust before they will help us. I have some ideas that just might work in our favour. I will see what I can do to communicate with them until then.'

Objective 6

  • Reach neutral reputation with the Red Sky Clan

The Drúedain in north-east Agarnaith may help you, but you must earn their trust.

You should complete tasks for Faeron to improve your standing with the Drúedain.

Objective 7

  • Talk to Faeron

Faeron can be found at the mountain pass in north-east Agarnaith.

You should talk to Faeron.

Faeron: 'Your efforts have gone a long way! They seem willing to let us into their village now. While you were out there slaughtering Orcs, I had a bit of success braking through the communication barrier. These people have been isolated for a long time, but they seem quick to catch on.'
Faeron teaches you some basic words of their language that should allow rudimentary communication with the Drúedain.

Objective 8

The Drúedain outside the mountain pass in north-east Agarnaith seem to be willing to talk to you now.

You should try to talk to Ghai-buri-Sêk.

Ghai-buri-Sêk: 'You... not Orcs. We do not know you, but you are not enemy.'
