Shadow of War - Eltariel quests The Witch-king’s Vision, The Three Towers and how to reclaim the Haedir Towers

How to complete the two opening Eltariel quests.

Shadow of War Eltariel quests form the basis of the main story for Act 2, and will lead you into Act 3 and beyond.

You may end up unlocking some of them in a slightly different order to how we've listed them as they're dependent on some free-roam activities and quests in other sets, and we'd actually suggest leaving this set of quests until after you've completed Brûz, Carnán, and Gondor - the extra skills and resources unlocked through those will come in handy, and it eliminates any danger of rendering them incompletable.

Other Eltariel missions include:

If you are interested in completing other missions in the game, our Shadow of War guide and walkthrough can help.

Digital Foundry takes a look at Shadow of War.

Eltariel quests: The Witch-king's Vision

Prerequisites: Complete Ring of Power..
Reward: 7575 XP, 900 Mirian

Find Eltariel's Trail: Examine the marked corpse.

Follow Eltariel's Trail: They're blue and glowing, so it's not a hard trail to follow.

Interrogate Worms: The five Worms will be marked on your map - be careful not to kill them!

Reach Eltariel: Head for the marker - she hasn't gone far.

Need more help? Our Shadow of War guide and walkthrough gives you an overview of everything you need, but if you need something in particular, we have pages on Shadow of War Fortress Sieges, how to earn Mirian in Shadow of War, a guide for how to import your Nemesis and Follower to Shadow of War, collectibles guides like how to get all Shadow of War Legendary Armour and Weapons sets, a list of Lost Artifacts and Web of Fate locations, and Ithildin Door poem solutions and Shadows of the Past, along with how to grind XP in Shadow of War to power through the tricky Shadow Wars endgame and get the true ending. Finally, there's Shadow of War's army building explained and the best skills and how to earn Skill Points.

The Three Towers: How to reclaim the Haedir Towers

Prerequisites: Complete Witch-king's Vision and cleanse the three Haedir in Núrnen.
Reward: 9280 XP, 930 Mirian

Reach the First Haedir Tower before the Haedir is Reclaimed: Make use of your Elven Agility to cross the terrain quickly. You only need to get near the tower, not climb it, so there's plenty of time.

Defeat the Orcs before the Haedir is Reclaimed: There's not actually a time limit here, so don't rush it!

Reach the Second Haedir Tower before the Haedir is Reclaimed / Defeat the Orcs before the Haedir is Reclaimed: Same as before. It's a longer distance to travel, but still easily doable.

Reach the Third Haedir Tower before the Haedir is Reclaimed / Defeat the Orcs before the Haedir is Reclaimed: Same as before.
