Chapter 1: Unraveling The Thread
Strider asks you to gather allies, and then return to him. You will be transported to an instanced version of Ost Baranor where he will lead you against Amdir and the Blackwolds. Ost Baranor is where you complete the Fixing Falco’s Folly series of quests.
When you enter the instance Strider will break off from you and you will follow Torthann. You will fight many Blackwolds as Torthann leads you to your final encounter. When you reach the circle style alter, before the gate, you will fight your first semi-difficult mob. Then Torthann will stop and allow you to rest. He will open the gate and you will continue up the stairs to fight 2 mobs. Your first mob will be a signature mob, and then Amdir will come to life and fight you as well. Be sure to have enough power for both fights.
Upon completion of this instance you will need to return to Strider in the Prancing Pony.
I completed this quest around level 17 with 1 other person. You may want 3-4 level 15’s to easily defeat Amdir. Upon completion return to
Reward: 1s 5c and one of the following: Hengaim (Light gloves), Menedgaim (Medium gloves), Cloak of Cardolan
Strider asks you to go to Combe and speak with Constable Underhill. Combe is located to the East of Bree. Head out of Bree through the Northeast gate and then head North along the road to Combe. Constable Underhill is located in the middle of town standing on the doorsteps of the Town Hall area. Upon speaking with the Constable you will have completed Chapter 2.
Chapter 3: Blackwolds Broken
Speak with Constable Underhill again to be transported to an instanced version of the Blackwolds’ old hideout. You will fight some Neekerbreaker mobs while protecting the Constable as he travels into the hideout. Eventually you will reach the end of the maze and see dwarfs beating a Blackwold member. The dwarfs will attack you while one flees. The Constable will leave you to fight while he tracks the lead Dwarf. These are not difficult mobs. Speak with the Blackwold member, and then continue down the path to the Constable. You have completed Chapter 3 and will be transported out when you speak with him again.
Speak with the Constable when back in Combe to receive your reward. This can be completed by 1-2 level 17’s (I had 2 total), or 3 - 4 level 15’s without a problem.
Reward: 1s 5c and one of the following: Constable’s Jacket (Medium Armor) and Constable’s Hammer (One-handed hammer)
Chapter 4: Dark Designs
After the dwarf’s attack you are instructed to speak with the Constable again. Speak with him and he will send you back to Bree to talk with Strider. Nothing tough, just go back.
