    Ancient Story of Evil - No attack at Barrow-Forge?

    So, six of us, pushing the limits of our levels and being in the Great Barrow and loving it got our key parts, read the book, and called it for the night. We went into the Great Barrow again the next evening, and fought back to the Barrow-Forge to remake the Great Barrows Key.

    Having suffered before in this section of the quest we positioned ourselves warily for the onslaught as the first member went to use the forge, awaiting the assault of the Wights.

    And....

    Nothing.

    Six forgings later, not a single wight had risen to stop the key making. It was VERY creepy waiting for the horrible assault we'd experienced with other characters, only to finally shrug as no wights arrived.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Is this an intentional change with Oath of the Ranger update? A bug? Or did we chance upon a safe "scoot off straight from the wooden stairs" path that didn't trigger the wight spawns?

    Just curious...

    Mirkwood patch notes say this:
    The quest “An Ancient Story of Evil” will now spawn creatures at the outset of using the forge in The Great Barrow.
    Haven't done this quest since long, long ago (when you still had to go back to Bree to turn it in and reforge the key), so I don't really know the situation. But I suspect that if the wights spawned 6 times, every time every player reforged the key, that probably wasn't working the way they wanted it to.

    Brings back memories of the old version of Ruins of Cardolan, where you'd get swarmed by wights repeatedly if just the wrong player stepped just the wrong way toward the chest.

    Which, prior to this run through, before Oath of the Rangers, is precisely what it did each of the times I have done it.

    Well, it certainly made it easier, that's for sure!
