A hidden event has appeared in the Lord of the Rings Online May 13, 2020 following the update. It is the continuation of the quest series which also appeared in 2018.
It is indeed, the key word, if we can appreciate to solve these enigmas solo, doing it in group and vocal is a real addition to the experience. It was even for me, a very good moment and I really enjoyed doing it as a group.
There are more difficult puzzles than others, and we also had to count on the help of other players via in particular the official forum to sometimes manage to advance.
It will not be necessary to do this hidden quest line in order to participate in the new three-player instance “Askâd-Mazal, the Hall of Shadows” which will be available on Next may 20. However, discovering its entry will be mandatory. It will be available in solo, duo, and trio, and will have several thirds of difficulty.
Note, the entire quest had to be resolved for the instance to activate on the server. Rest assured it was done on Sirannon.
You will need to have completed the previous quest “The Hidden Stone“whose solution you can find here. It is also with this enigma that you will find a use for the necklace”Ashmâr-Aban“that you had obtained in the howling pit of Jarnfast. If you do not have it or more, find a companion having it and you will be able to also benefit from it.
And it all started with a Dwarf …
Grimyr is in Erebor, it is under a pillar on the right, just before reaching the throne. You will then have to speak to Thorin, who will instruct you to find Frethir in Moria.
So go to Khazad-dusm and more particularly in the Foundations from Pierre, Frethir awaits you near the piece of bridge (where a long time ago you had found Gandalf’s hat).
Then set off to explore the Crown Room, it is near the Dark Cave, you will need to activate a lever before you can discover the secret entrance – Frethir must be next to you.
I got lost again!
From here, you can solve the Stones puzzles in any order.
The inscriptions are in Felak Karâth, the runes used by the Eastern Dwarfs the Zhélruka. A table of concordance with the Classic Dwarf Runes is found on the stone of Agshar-Mazal in Erebor.
Small Dwarf Translation Kit
Small Dwarf Translation Kit
Translation: “Shield against the howling winds” “A shield against the howling winds “
En route to Murdassaut in Ered Mithrin! After a few laps, a few falls, and a few mockeries you will find the lever at position 38.1N 43.1W and the door thus opened at 38.6N 43.8W.
In this secret room, the door is closed, but two clues are left on the Stones.
The first says, “The Heir of the Iron holds the light in the darkness” – the Iron Heir holds the light in the dark“and the second Ashmâr-Aban.
So following this Yao quest, Prunaprismia and I toured all of the illustrious (and more unrecognized) Dwarves in Middle-earth. It was long and quite funny.
Well imagine that it is near Nain dissatisfied to Jarnafast that salvation will come!
A new quest will allow you to change this good old man Ashmâr-Aban as a necklace that you can equip. Thanks to him, a series of hidden Runes will now be available to you. If you do not have or no longer have the necklace, a companion who has fitted it can accompany you to reveal what is hidden.
The first of these Runes is in Jarnfast, passing behind the throne of Nain in the direction of the howling pit.
“The symbols of his power adorn his crown” – Aglâmbazari
Translation ; “The symbols of his power adorn his crown“- and Aglâmbazari for Luitaufond (Glimmerdeep).
So there again we went around what could be small wearing a crown. All ! The living, the Dead, the Statues …
Well, in the end; you had to go to the entrance to Luitaufond and, under a small waterfall (insert a lot of beating here), was the Hidden Runes.
“But the crown serves as his prison” – “But the crown serves him as a prison”
Direction then Thikiil Gundu, the instance, to find the other three hidden runes!
The first behind a statue in the entrance, the second behind the geode on the upper level of the library, the third behind the throne of the last room.
So there, I admit I did my Kaels reporter wrong, I am missing a screenshot of one of the runes and I did not note the translations that Yao made for us in vocal …
Anyway! Back in the Moria and direction Zirakzigil !
You will need to find five levers on the Dwarf ruins:
Then take a little height and you will find the key! (13.7N 110.0W).
Return to the secret room under Murdassaut and the first stone is yours!
Second stone: the DRAME
Yao was still in translation and this gave:
So we immediately dried a little, and .. Kam was talking to all of us, and it was in Lhingris that we found the Kam Lagurz area (15.5N 31.8E). There an emissary asked us to find the vestiges of the Fallen Ones (those which fell).
After another brainstorming session, and given the appearance of the emissary, we left in search of his fellows.
After some trial and error, it’s in the proceedings Dar Narbugud (at the level of the Mistress, and the eyeless) that you will find the vestiges. Anedocte without filter: “hey it’s funny we haven’t had worms yet … KAELS! … Oops”
Then it’s there 16th room and his famous rogue who will give you the next fragment, Fangefosse behind the first two bosses and … the FAULT !
A first vestige will be found after defeating the twins, it will then go to see this good old man Thaurlach and defeat it. Don’t worry if someone in the Community says “Charline is STILL DEAD“, this is normal, and in the end everything will be fine.
Armed with all your vestiges, return the emissary to Kam Lagurz. He asks you to say certain words to him and to seek the Mighty before pronouncing them.
You may have noticed that Thaurlach during his defeat activates a text on the screen: “The spirit of evil lingers still” – “the evil spirit still persists“, as well as the scourge of Durin in Zirakzigil” The war with the Valar is eternal “-“the war against the Valar is eternal“.
It will be the perfect opportunity to say ” Finally Pru stops trampling the Balrog a little respect“, at the time we did not manage to remember if this sentence was already there before or if it was new … In short we had a big doubt.
In the secret chamber are also three scrolls:
The scrolls of anguish
So there very loosely we left Yao, testing all possible solutions in emotes, texts, text translation … But it was a failure!
Finally, in the quest itself, each relic from the past gave you a code:
Fortunately, the solution came from the official forum, the Community deployed treasures of ingenuity to find the code.
ALL HAIL THE NAMELESS MOTHER
HER CHILDREN WHISPER THE NAME THROKHAR
ANXIOUSLY AWAITING THE CALL OF THEIR LORD
The day OF His RETURN IS NEARING
TEA SLUMBERING ONE SHALL HEAR OUR PLEA
AND ON THAT DARKEST DAY YOU WILL KNOW DESPAIR
HE WILL RISE FROM THE DEPTHS AND DEVOUR THE WORLD
ALL Greet the Mother Without a Name
HIS CHILDREN WALL MURDER THE NAME OF THROKHAR
LOOKING FORWARD TO THE APPEAL FROM THEIR LORD
THE DAY OF HIS RETURN IS APPROACHING
THE SLEEPER WILL HEAR OUR ADVOCACY
AND ON THIS DARKEST DAY YOU WILL KNOW HOPE
IT WILL RISE FROM DEEP AND EAT THE WORLD
Reassuring isn’t it?
By isolating the words that were in capital letters in the code, this gives: “Hail Throkhar, Lord of the Darkest Depths” – “Greet Throkhar, Lord of the Darkest Depths“.
Who in Khuzdul (after all these translations this should now be familiar to you) translates as; Shamukh Uthrokhar, Uzbadu Bazari Uznanul
It is this last sentence that must be said / spoken to the emissary; / speak Shamukh Uthrokhar, Uzbadu Bazari Uznanul
And HOP another stone in the pocket.
And it was once again Plaboum who was translating: “The hand fallen, the hand raised” – “The fallen hand, the raised hand “.
So we looked, we looked, I admit that all this time Amel Bent and his raised fist resounded in my head suddenly …
It’s finally at Thorin’s Court, Pit of Ventreoche that you will find your salvation.
The now traditional lever is located on the heights and it will give you access to the door near the statue.
(You now have your hand dropped, hand raised? And Aiming for the Moon It doesn’t scare me)
Once in the secret room do not forget to validate the quest at each stage, watch your automatic quests.
Then it’s a fairly classic NPC hunt!
The last clue will lead you directly to Carn Dum, you will have to enter the castle and go to the top of the stairs in the last room where a MAGNIFICENT Pierre awaits you!
* exceptionally no Kaels died of a fortuitous fall during this episode.
Which gives in Yaotesque Runes: “Over the Land there lies a long shadow
Westward reaching wings of darkness “-” A long shadow hovers over the earth Towards the west, reach the wings of darkness “
So in the original version it was really Westward and Darkness that made us go into the way of the dead.
When you enter through Gondor access fairly quickly on the left is the secret lever (it is behind a large rock at the entrance do not hesitate to use the delete key (del). Attention it will be dark!
He opens a secret door which is further north.
It will be dark!
There, patatras, the entrance is barred by a runestone … You will then have to go find Marus, the almost Provencal Dwarf in Shadow refuge (13.1S 101.2W) and find the original chisel.
The latter is near Mazarbul’s room (poor Balin has never seen so many people) (4.7S 106.0W).
Once done, let’s go to practical work with some crafts of course, you will need a friend ironworker and one jeweler to make the necessary items.
Warning ! it does not have to be critical versions (this is the first time you want to make one!)
Return to Marus who whispers the solution to get rid of the runestone.
Go back to the secret room and … take the Stone!
The Dark King
Now that you have found the four stones, return to the Crown room in the stone foundations !
Put all the stones back on the pedestals and then yell “Oh NO what did I do”!
Prunaprismia has literally cracked on the beard of this ugly Dwarf.
To be here, do not stop on such a good path and go discover Askad-Mazal, the Room of Shadows which is a little higher towards the Dark Cave. You will be ready to browse this new three-player instance when it arrives Wednesday May 20 at 4:00 p.m.
We will find pretty jewelry!
I hope you have had the chance to do all or part of this group quest, it is frankly the best in this discovery! (with small mockery, falls and jumps)
A big thank you to EDH, Pruna and Yao with whom we had a good time with all this! Strongly the next!
