    Level 26 LM stuck among giants in The Stonemere..

    S.O.S!

    Do not ask how I get myself into these messes, I was trying to get to Eregion to farm wood for my Supreme Forester and well, now I am among giants. I really don't want to die and would like to get to Eregion so if anyone that's a high enough level/feeling helpful would like to give me a hand it'd be much appreciated


    Send me a tell if you are.

    Sounds like you ended up in the Giant Valley of the Trollshaws. I salute you for getting there at level 26--most people don't begin to walk around that area for at least another ten levels above you.

    Since you didn't specify where in the Valley you got stuck in, I'm going to assume you haven't ventured too far into the giant-infested area. Best thing to do is to backtrack to the west and follow the land as it slopes upward. Be wary of drakes and worms all over that slope. The trail out will appear as white-tinted ground. Once you leave the Giant Valley, step back onto the main trail to Rivendell but follow it to the west.

    Take the switchbacks down the slope to the Ford of Bruinen and swim down the river to the south. Stay plenty clear of the marshy area that will be on the left side of the river when you pass through some large boulders. Keep swimming south. Eventually, you'll see Garbert's Cottage on the right. A little further down the river from this on the left side should be a steep trail sloping up. Follow this road for a considerable distance. As soon as you see a large set of elf ruins, go to them. This is the Elf-populated base camp of Gwingris. Talk to the stablemaster NPC there as soon as you can so that you activate its horse route.

    Eregion has lots of wood and ore across the whole area, but be on sharp lookout for hostile trees, wood-trolls, flies, Dunlending soldiers, and holly-benders (those stupid creatures-of-nature that look like onions on stilts...seriously, I hate them).

    Good luck!

    AmandaGames, where is your map bound to?

    The easiest thing to do at this point would be to port back to your map location and seek an escort to take you into Eregion. Or try the Trollshaws route into Eregion. It's much easier to navigate at your level.

    Thanks for the helpful tips!
    I did end up in a..factory? of sorts largely populated by Giants and Rockworms. It was crazy fun, I actually got stuck there because I asked someone to show me the way and well..they said it was through that way. I'd been up to Trollshaws since earlier than 26. Mostly just to explore and apparently die a lot because I thought purple meant good. Like really, who made it so that red didn't indicate the most danger? It bothered me but anyway, I will try the way you suggested in a couple of levels I suppose/with anyone that feels like escorting me. I really do not want to resort to the A for materials because it is so expensive. I am horribly directionally handicapped [ I believe that is a thing now ] So I hope I can get that down right. Thanks for the help
    And thanks to all the other helpful people ;D

    If you ever need help while I'm logged in, shoot me a /tell. I'm either on my RK or my Warden usually.

    My Warden's name is Wardenstein.

    Oh, and if you think the color code is goofy now, wait till you get to Eregion and Moria. Some mobs and quests are definitely not level-appropriate when you are on-level with the mobs there.

    There is a path to Eregion through the Giant's valley, but if you ended up in the stone complex full of Giants and Worms, you got off track. It seems your guide needed a guide. But most folk take the path to Gwingris as LordRazor mentioned.

    I'm not sure what the minimum level is for a port to Echad Dunnan, but high-level Hunters can port into Eregion and could, perhaps, offer you a ride (though, I'd wager your level is too low).

    In the event you actually GET to Eregion, at your level the mobs will travel from considerable distances (LOL probably even other servers!!) to eat you for snackies... I also believe that if you are significantly too low for a zone your mining/harvesting skill time is increased as well giving those mobs even more time to get you...

    Good luck!

    Both true, unfortunately. Which was bizarre because when I was eventually able to help her, she was at L31 which should have been within the 20 level gap for Eregion. The aggro was not too bad, but it was definitely much longer than usual. And it took her about 2 minutes per node (wood and ore).
