    The Weather Hills
    Rune-covered Rock


'As I was returning from the lands to the east, the night sky over Weathertop was lit by bright flashes of white akin to lightning yet no clouds darkened the sky and of thunder there was no sound.

'I think that no ordinary storm visited Amon Sul that night. I ask you to search the ruins atop Weathertop and see if there is anything to find, my friend.

'If you find anything out of the ordinary, return to me immediately.'


As Candaith returned from his journey in the lands to the east, he saw flashes atop Weathertop of white light, akin to lightning there was no storm.


Objective 1

  • Search the summit of Weathertop for anything unusual
  • Weathertop towards above Candaith's camp

    Candaith asked you to search Weathertop for anything out of the ordinary and to bring any news or evidence that you may find back to him.

    Objective 2
  • Bring the Rock-rubbing to Candaith
  • Candaith's camp is at the foot of Weathertop.

    You found a rune-covered rock and took a rubbing of the markings. You should return to Candaith and learn if he knows what the runes might mean.


    Candaith's camp is at the foot of Weathertop.

    There are two Sharp-eye Lookouts (Level 19 Birds) sitting on top of the rune-covered rock at the top of Weathertop, 31.0S, 36.8W. Basically the first left when you hike up there.
