Call to Dwarves, AEpic - Book III: Council of the North
NOTE: You must have completed Chapter 03: Fallen Once More from the Epic - Book III: Council of the North before you can take this quest. Since there are three quests that have this as a pre-requisite quest, I did not link them. Instead, the Chapters are linked sequentially.
Halbarad has enlisted you with the task of speaking to the North Down leaders of three races in order to convince them to join together against the Enemy.
For this quest, you'll be speaking with the Longbeard Dwarves or Othrikar.
ANOTHER NOTE: You may only have one of the "Call to" quests active at a time. After you complete this one, you should be able to return to Halbarad and accept either of the other two.
1) Talk to Dori or Hannar. Halbarad instructs you:
"Travel to Othrikar and speak with Dori. If you cannot find Dori for some reason, speak to a dwarf named Hannar. It is he who leads the Longbeards of Othrikar."
From the quest notes:
"Both Dori and Hannar should be found in Othrikar, which lies north of Esteldin."
Take the path west out of Esteldin, and then take the marked (on your in-game map) path leading north. Before long it will lead you directly to Othrikar. Once in town, go west until you hit a dead end, then turn left (south). Once you see the forge area in the middle, go left, heading westish. There you will find Hannar, standing in between two doors (7.2s, 44.9w). He tells you that Dori has "been captured by the Dourhands!" He has been ordered to turn over their mines, or else they will kill Dori.
2) After you speak with them and select "Finish Now", you get your coin reward, XP, and you will now be able to take the next quest, Chapter 4: Freeing Dori.
