The Ever-seer lied to the Eldgang. We will no longer listen to his foul words.

For many centuries, we suffered the cruelty of Thaurlach, a Balrog of the Great Enemy, and fought against him. When the Blue Wanderers came with the Elf Glathirel and chained Thaurlach, our people were glad and helped to watch him. Now the Ever-seer wishes to free Thaurlach and use him for his own evil purposes.

Go to Gorthban and help Glathirel, who remains here still in vigil over Thaurlach’s prison. She will know what to do.


Eimyr, the chieftain of the Eldgang, realized the folly of his ways and has chosen to stand against the ancient evil which lies within the halls of Nurz Ghashu.


Objective 1

“Eimyr has instructed you to find Glathirel and aid her against Thaurlach, a Balrog of Morgoth.”
