'I have nothing left, thanks to your carelessness. If you wish to speak with someone, speak with Laerdan. He will have to continue the fight on now, without me.

'Now leave me.'

This quest is meant for a fellowship. If you choose to undertake this quest solo you will receive an inspiration bonus, but the challenge will be great.


The assault on Carn Dum saw the freedom of the Ranger Golodir, but proved fruitless as Lorniel perished, and Mordirith, the Stewart of Angmar, withdrew into the fastness of the city.


Objective 1

  • Talk to Laerdan
  • Laerdan is at Gath Forthnir.

    Golodir, crushed by his daughters death, told you to leave him be and to go speak with the Elf Laerdan.

    Objective 2
  • Find Golodir's sword
  • Find Golodir's mail shirt
  • Find Golodir's shield
  • Golodir's gear might be carried on the creatures that make their home in Carn Dum.

    As a first step in his plan to renew Golodir's spirit, Laerdan has asked you to retrieve the Ranger's weapons and gear from the capital of Angmar, Carn Dum.
