Tudagub then attempted to brute force crack the boots after Dalamar's refusal to help. With dictionary in hand, he spoke as many words as possible to them before going to bed for many weeks, having no success. He then tried to get Bregor to read an elven dictionary for him, as he himself could not pronounce the words with the correct inflection. The boots were incinerated along with Tudagub after his death, much to Banon's dismay.
The power word was reportedly 'Foom-Baba', along with Banon's staff.
