The sky is dark and the fires of lust are everywhere. Remembering the words of the Council, you step into the blasted territory.

Quest Item – Crown of Gondor 170 days – Lord Elrond, on the wings of Gwaihir, meets your path. “My Lord, here is a new sword for you, rebuilt from the shards of Narsil!”.

Grasping the sword you declare to all land: “This is Andúril, Flame of the West! May it lighten my path and vanquish the perils ahead!” Quest Item - Andúril 180 days After a long strenuous climbing, the entrance to the Cracks of Doom appears.
