'You've done good work dealing with those old wights, but I'll be honest with you, Darqflame...I was hoping you wouldn't find anything but green mounds and cold stones out there. Now I'm more worried than ever!

'The Great Barrow has always been a place that few are brave enough to tread, but you seem stouter than Bree-folk. Perhaps you would go in there and keep the wights from even coming out? The Great Barrow is towards the southern end of the Downs.

'Stout or not, I'd not go it alone, if I were you. That Great Barrow is sure to be a bad place. Maybe you should take some friends?'


There are many rumours that mysterious Black Riders ride the land, and behind them ancient evils are stirred. Chief Watcher Grimbriar is worried that tales of walking dead in the Barrow-downs will eventually mean doom for Bree.


Objective 1
Defeat wights in the Great Barrows (0/25)

The Barrow-downs lie to the west of Bree, south of the Great East Road. The Great Barrow is at the southern end of the Barrow-downs.

Bob Redthistle, even more anxious upon learning that the wights are not an old wives' tale, has asked you to enter the Great Barrow and keep the wights from getting out. He recommended you take friends with you.

Objective 2
Talk to Bob Redthistle at the Dead Man's Perch

You should return to Bob Redthistle and let him know that you have destroyed many wights within the Great Barrow.
