Question: Why Didn’T Gandalf Warn The Fellowship About The Balrog?

Did Saruman know Gandalf died?

Why can’t Gandalf touch the ring?

Gandalf can’t touch the One ring because it would corrupt him and he would become a terrifying wizard like Saruman. It’s the same reason Galadriel refused the One ring. The One ring can only be worn by Sauron. Anyone else who wields it would be under his control, even Gandalf the grey/ white.

Why didn’t Gandalf warn the fellowship about the Balrog?

The movie implies that Gandalf knew there was a balrog in Moria and that is why he didn’t want to go that route, because they could possibly die and lose the ring. Gandalf was not aware of the massive orc presence in Moria so he could not warn them of that.

Did Gandalf know about the Balrog?

Gandalf obviously did know about the Goblins and the Balrog. … And he certainly knew all about Balrogs since he was a Maia, who had presumably participated in the War of Wrath when the Balrogs were mostly destroyed. He recognized the Balrog instantly when he saw it, as did Gimli and Legolas.

Why can’t Gandalf remember Moria?

Why didn’t he? He had been through Moria (more than once), but if memory serves he had only gone East to West, never West to East. So when he came to this place before, he may not have realized it was a fork in the road as he was coming out if the fork, not into the fork.

How does Gandalf defeat Balrog?

Gandalf pursued the monster for eight days, until they climbed to the peak of Zirakzigil, where the Balrog was forced to turn and fight, its body erupting into new flame. Here they fought for two days and nights. In the end, the Balrog was defeated and cast down, breaking the mountainside where it fell “in ruin”.
