We're definitely going to Helm's Deep with our own characters. I'm positive about this. Read:
This is from the most recent dev chat transcript. Yes, we're getting Helm's Deep instances, although it is not said if they take place during the actual Siege of Helm's Deep in which Aragorn & Friends fought; although I can't think of any other setting - in the books there is no mention (iirc) of any battles in the days before and after the siege. So I guess we're going to help defend the Hornburg & the Deeping Wall against Saruman's legions of Uruk-hai....and get loot for it. The quote says it's the instance team that's working on Helm's Deep, and this is jwbarry talking, who is the lead raid designer iirc. The question was about upcoming multiple boss raids, the answer was "Helm's Deep experience". It all adds up to Helm's Deep (or parts of it) will be the new raid instance for Western Rohan. While there will surely be more to see of Helm's Deep outside of this raid (The open-world version of it will probably set after the siege) I do not know if there will be session play involved. The epic story will go to there, I guess. But if you are a raider, your character will, too. Even if it says somewhere, we weren't there...we will be.
