'Ever since we left Moria the goblins and Orcs have been pouring out into the Dimrill Dale. It has become increasingly difficult to maintain our positions here.

'THe Orcs have established three primary camps, all south-east of here: Uruk-gashan, Dru-garmadh and Athmadhul. I care not which camps the Orcs come from, as long as you thin out a good number of them.

'When you have reduced their numbers sufficiently, return here to me. I suggest you take a friend or two with you...there are far too many Orcs present for you to handle yourself.'


The Orcs have flooded out of Moria and are quickly taking over the Dimrill Dale.


Objective 1
Defeat Orcs in the Dimrill Dale (0/20)
Orcs can be found at Uruk-gashan, Dru-garmadh and Athmadhul, all south-east of Mekhem-bizru.

Raskwith asked you to head into the Dimrill Dale and thin the ranks of the Orcs there. He also warned you to take a friend or two with you.

Objective 2
Return to Raskwith
Raskwith is at Mekhem-bizru, north-west of the Orc-camps.

Raskwith will be pleased to hear that the ranks of the Orcs have been thinned.
