Zone levels 52-55

If you let Volume II of the epic story guide you, Book 2 sends you to The Silvertine Lodes, just south of Dolven-view, to kill goblins in Gamil Filik. Additional quests for the zone (levels 52-55) can be found in The Deep Descent. One of the smaller zones in Moria, you'll make up for it with lots of climbing. Alternate with Chamber of the Crossroads in Durin's Way for these levels.

Virtue Deeds in The Silvertine Lodes

Deeds for The Silvertine Lodes sort to Moria Central Halls in your deed log, along with The Great Delving, Nud-Melek and Zelem-Melek. Between these zones, you'll want to complete 60 quests for a rank each of Innocence and Empathy. Non-instance slayer deeds are Moria-wide, so don't worry about finishing these until you are ready to leave Moria.
