    Since there's little to no marketing for Update 22 - dumping this here as a sneak preview of zones.

    Loeglond - Border town between Eryn Lasgalen (Wood of Greenleaves) and The Dale-Lands

    Lake Town













    The last image above is one of the interior quest locations - In this case it's the warehouse that a group of smugglers work from. Design obviously resembles that of the Rohan Mead-Halls but it's been altered to have less of an association with those older zones.

    Update 22 looks absolutely amazing (I saw it on BR). In "High Res" an "Ultra" it is even more impressive than the screens above. This is gonna be a huge step for Lotro after the fall of the ring. Can't wait! Good job, SSG! <3

    Looks decent, the distance textures looks bad i think, like on the mountains. Also it needs to be better optimized, low FPS like in Gondor regions...

    Yeah. Just to clarify I'm running with only 4x AA and no texture filtering to save on performance (my laptop itself is on its last legs).

    My texture settings were set to High instead of Very High which make a big difference in the new area. I'll take some higher quality pictures if people want them.

    Screenshots are more of a general appearance over fine details (kinda leaving that up to the rest of you to see for yourselves).

    I ran around Eryn Lasgalen briefly* on BR; it is indeed beautiful, but it's hell to get around in. Wherever you want to go, there's either a gigantic tree or a steep mountain between you and it. For you-can't-get-there-from-here, it rivals Angmar -- but much prettier.

    There's a deed for places Thorin, Bilbo, and company encountered on their trip to the Lone Mountain -- including the river that Bombur fell into and fell asleep.

    The secret to Eryn Lasgalen it to draw a rough map, (just the road(s)) and understand that the shortest distance between two points is the road. Additionally, as much as it takes away from the experience, turn off the frills...

    I briefly took my dwarf, who originates from Erebor, to the new areas. It was a heart-warming homecoming, as he rode from Lake-town to Dale and finally to the gates of Erebor . Instanced Hall Under the Mountain is cool and all, but it's totally different when you see the gate getting closer and bigger. All places look very good. And of course, the statue in front of the gate is a nice touch:

    KILI

    AMRAKHKHARMU

    (I hope I transliterated it correctly )

    A spoiler alert would have been nice. I still don't have a clue what this is all about other than unreleased content from the beta server?

    if it's not marketed, I guess the reason is it's still in testing.

    That sounds like a good idea, and I'll try it next time. I was out in the dead of night and couldn't *see* any roads.
