Blood-Stained Buckler is an artifact that can be found in Sea of Núrnen.


The Blood-Stained Buckler artifact can be found in a cave at Harad Basin, in the eastern part of Sea of Núrnen.

Dwarven-made and built to withstand great amounts of punishment, this wood-and-steel buckler served its user well. Many marks and scorings hint to its usefulness in combat, but the blood stains are perhaps an indication of a grim outcome for the Dwarf who carried it into battle.

It is believed by some to belong to Torvin, who's brother was killed by a graug who he swore to hunt, much like the person speaking in the memory of this shield.

"Brother…? Brother, where are you…?

The bloody Graug knocked me senseless… and… brother… By Durin's beard, no. No, no, this shouldn't be…

This is my fault. I should've been more prepared… I should've listened to you… I should've been a better hunter.

I will avenge you, brother. I will hunt this Graug in your name. And I will be the hunter you always wanted me to be."
