Quests and Adventure Areas

  • The Gorgoroth Resource Instance "The Burning Mountain" is now available.
  • The very high-level wights in the Barrow-downs were only supposed to appear at certain times. They've been reprimanded and should no longer constantly appear there, eager to feast on unwary, lower-level characters.
  • The Quest, "Reclaiming Udun: Maudhul Tar Overlook" can now be completed.
  • Optional quests in both The Wastes and Gorgoroth Resource Instances will no longer go away when you leave the instance before the main quest timer runs out.

  • Hobbit Allegiance: Footprints are easier to find in "The Last Word"
  • Aster Hayward can now be spoken to.
  • Elf Allegiance: fixed an errant extra quest ring marker in "The Wandering and the Lost"
  • The Allegiance travel skills have been renamed: Journey to Bâr Thorenion, Journey to the Court of Lothlórien, Journey to the Hall of the King, and Journey to the Hall Under the Mountain. These skills now have a 5 minute cooldown and are unaffected by the Expedient Traveller and Returning Traveller traits.
  • Uruk Enforcers in Udun will wear their shields properly.
  • The enemies in the quest Fatal Prize are now considerably weaker.
  • The Battle Under the Trees session in the Elf Allegiance line should play more gracefully. The session avatar is much more powerful, a number of AI pathing issues have been fixed, and a small number of enemies have been removed. Some of the voice over narration has been slightly re-timed as well.
  • Phasing issues with Mulnir in the Udun Foothold surrounding A Solemn Gathering should be resolved.
  • The lava heat has been pulled back from one of the stones needed for the Quest Four to Open in Udun, so it can be safely reached.
  • Players can now return and use the door again if they are defeated in Four to Open.
  • Udun now has more Uruk Enforcers and surrenderers.
  • The Quest Three Proofs no longer has a sorcerer to prevent confusion.
  • An issue has been fixed in the quest Three Proofs where players could sometimes not be able to summon Yordam.
  • Aragorn will now be standing before the Black Gates for A First Furtive Foray, no matter your current state of progress in Where the Shadows Lie.
  • Orodruin: The North Slopes is now playable.
  • Being defeated in Naerband now places you in a defeat circle in Talath Urui.
  • The Deed Quest of Talath Urui now requires 50 completed quests.
  • All races can now complete the Epic Prologue: At the Behest of Cardavor.
