Book 5: The Last Refuge (without Misty Mountains)

Before we Start

This guide covers the Book 5 Epic Quest only. You do not need the Misty Mountains Quest Pack to follow this guide. I would recommend being level 42 to do this Book, but it is achievable from level 40 onwards.

If you want to quest in the Misty Mountains please use this guide instead

You cannot start Book 5 without completing Book 4, Chapter 9. If you haven't done this then please read my guide to Book 4.

Please ensure you have started your three Class Legendary Deeds (bought the books & spoken to the trainers to start them, see my Book 4 guide).  The pages will drop at random from mobs in the Misty Mountains and you might as well get as many as you can while you're here.

Note that you can start Book 6 without doing 4 or 5 so you could choose to skip both of these Books but I would recommend that you do them for the story & for the (eventual) 20TP deed.

Book 5 begins in Rivendell - see my guide to getting to Rivendell if you're not sure how to travel there..

The Book 5 Epic Quest

1. Visit Elrond in his Library on the top floor of the Last Homely Home and speak to him to accept [42] Book 5, Chapter 1: Into the Misty Mountains.

2. Leave the Last Homely Home take the path north into the Misty Mountains, at the fork in the road take the eastern (right) path and follow the cliffs around to the north (left) to find Gloin's Camp and speak to Gloin and turn in B5C1 and accept [42]B5C2: Troublesome Goblins

3. Exit the camp and follow the path north into the mountains, when you reach a clearing ride north-east through the pass of Nan Gongarg into Eastern Bruinen Source. Make your way south to the entrance to the main camp (22.6,1.3) and then follow the path up into the mountains killing goblins & wargs as you go.

4. Eventually you will reach a wooden palisade fort where Gurzmat (lvl 42 signature) is waiting (23.4,2.5). Interrupt his heals whenever you can or the fight will take far longer than it needs to. Also, he will summon a Gabilazan Guard to assist him, I would recommend taking the add out to reduce your incoming damage.

5. Exit the camp the same way you came in and exit the area through the Whitecleft pass (entrance at 22.7,.07) 

6. Ride north and return to Gloin's Camp and speak to Gloin  turn in B5C2 and accept [43]B5C3: The High Fortress

7. Exit the camp and ride east into High Cleft then bear south when you can and continue south through the entrance to Gabilazan (26.6,0.3).

8. Enter Gabilazan and go through the door on your right (27.3,0.0), kill a couple of guards and search the Gabilazan Cornerstone then exit the vault

9. Return to Gloin's camp speak to Gloin to turn in B5C3 and accept [43] B5C4: The Key-Stone.

10 Exit the camp and ride north to Iskeld's Lookout and collect the Key Stone (21.6,4.5)

8. Return to Gloin's Camp and speak to Gloin to turn in B5C4 and accept B5C5: The Last Refuge.

9. Return to Rivendell (stable route) and speak to Gimli at The Guest Rooms to travel to the instance. Follow him through and kill all the mobs he pulls.  The final fight is quite long and I would recommend interrupting the bosses heals!  Speak to Gimli at the end to complete the instance and return to Rivendell.

11. Return to Gloins camp (stable route) and speak to Gloin and turn in B5C5 and accept [43] B5C6: In the Steps of Evil

12. Exit the camp and ride north, through the clearing with the bears and into the snow fields full of Snow Beasts. Bear east when you see a ruin on your right (20.0,1.9)to discover the Treasury of Helegrod.

13. Approach the Treasury door and 2 undead will appear. Kill them and recover the Sigil of Drugoth, note that there is no need to enter the building.

14. Return to Gloin's Camp and speak to Gloin to turn in B5C6 and accept [43]B5C7: Evil Tidings

15. Return to Rivendell (stable route) and visit Elrond's Library (Top floor of the Last Homely House), speak to Elrond to turn in B5C7 and accept [43]B5C8: Fire & Ice

16.. Return to Gloin's Camp (stable route) and ride north to the Helgerod Treasury. 
  • Enter the Treasury and take out the first pack of mobs.
  •  Descend the stairs and examine the Obelisk at the base to continue the Instance quest. 
  • At the end of the path take the left fork to find an okelisk at the end of the winding hall
  • Then go right and ignore the first fork on the left
  • Take the second fork and clear to the end to find the second obelisk
  • Take the third fork and clear to the end for the third obelisk
  • Return to the main chamber and pass through the doors (now opened)
  • Fight the Nazgul and be aware that he will heal himself to full health once during the fight (from about 60%)
  • Either run back to the entrance to leave the instance or wait around for a few minutes and you will be teleported there.
17. Return to Rivendell (milestone is preferable here, otherwise run back to Gloin's camp and take the stable route) and speak to Elrond (in his Library) to turn in B5C8 and complete Book 5.
