Lord of the Rings Online - missing quest


OK, I have been playing LOTRO off and on since I was in closed Beta, and I have a vague memory of a quest, but I am not sure it is still in the game. Though I suppose I could have imagined it...

The quest would have been in the early years of the game, I think possibly before Mines of Moria went live. I believe it had one of those backstory flash backs to a tribe of hillmen/sort of aboriginals. I also vaguely remember some sort of orb or sphere on a small hilltop.

Sorry for being vague. I tried hitting Google, and didn't turn up anything, but for some reason I think the name was something like Dum Burri Dum [but that isn't it, but the third word is the same as the first word.] I also think we are trying to get the guy who is the leader of his tribe to honor a promise of help in a fight.

[I am actually watching the trilogy while playing =) I am currently on Arkenstone as Miclic]

Unfortunately it Doesn't sound too familiar to me, I played a bunch from beta to Moria. The only thing that immediately came to mind was the Dwarf introductory quest line about the Shornbeard Clan of dwarves, but I have no idea why.


Or also the name reminds me of The wildmen and their names like Ghân-buri-Ghân, but I don't recall any of them in LOTRO. Is it possible you are conflating another Middle-Earth game?

I also played a lot from beta up until Lothlorien. I played every quest, I was a completionist, and that quest doesn’t sound familiar at all.

ETA: The only “aborigines” I can think of were the Lossoth in Forochel. They were nomadic tribesmen but were more like Inuit.

Thanks, but it may have been something they were playing with in Beta, mrAru remembers something like it as well.

Ah well, it isn't like there is a derth of stuff to do =)

how big of an orb are you remembering? There are some quests around the Stone of Erech (big black orb on top of a hill) in Gondor that match your description but they come quite a bit after Moria.

Here's what I'm talking about. Does this look familiar?

Volume III, Book 3, Chapter 2
