Beneath the GreenfieldsEpic - Prologue Hobbit Quest
Halros tells you that the goblin leader is Lubach, who "is under sway of a Man from the north, from Angmar, I believe." You are to rescue Bounder Primstone, who went to the goblin camp alone. Note: it is my suggestion that you bring along a friend or two to make this quest less painful and more fun!
1) Rescue Bounder Primstone. Head to the northwest goblin camp called Golfimbul's Hole (25.6s, 68.5w). Take the path towards a door (24.7s, 69.5w). This will bring you to the Instance: Greenfields Warren.
2) Find Bounder Primstone within the Instance. Bear left at the first large fire. You will find Bounder Primstone near another large fire not far after.
3) Talk to Bounder Primstone, then follow him.
4) You will need to defeat Lubach (level 12, non-elite), who will call a few of his cronies to attack you first.
5) After Lubach is dead, Primstone will point out that Halros is there. Talk to Halros. Halros apologizes for not being there to help you, and that he has recovered the Bullroarer Club. He wants to talk with you further at his camp.
6) Talk to Halros again, select "Travel Now", and he will zone you to his camp. There he tells you the Man from the north is named Eogan.
7) After you speak with him and select "Finish Now", you get your coin reward, XP, Fated Dagger, Lubach's Crusher, Halros' Staff, Halros' Trousers, Halros' Boots, or Lubach's Ender, and you will now be able to take the next quest, The Shire Unprotected.
