War rages both home and abroad. While mighty Dwarven soldiers give their lives in far off territories in the name of the Alliance, our own lands fall prey to the evil deeds of the Dark Iron Dwarves. They laid waste to the Thandol Span. Dun Modr fell soon after.
We need you to gather force and push the front back. If you can kill 10 Dark Iron Dwarves, 5 Tunnelers, 5 Saboteurs and 5 Demolitionists, the reserve might arrive in time to finish the drive.
Now make haste!
You will gain:
You upheld your orders well, <class>. You have proven yourself to be a valiant soldier and loyal servant to King Magni and for that I salute you! With the pressure you applied to the Dark Iron encampment, we now stand a chance of driving them off our lands for good... If only the damned reserve would show...
There are two additional, outdoor camps of these dwarves to the east (around 61,25) that may be more accessible.
This quest is the source of frustration for many players, as it is three levels higher than the quest that follows it. Indeed, the quest that follows technically only requires level 22 to obtain, but because this quest requires level 25, it creates a de facto minimum of 25 for the next one. Many believe that by the time one can complete this quest, one no longer needs/wants the quest that follows.
