    Isengard expansion: Any landscape changes?

    The title says it all - with previous releases to the legendary server, zones have received a bit of a makeover. Is this the case with Dunland, the Gap of Rohan or the Great River?

    No but those regions looks more beautiful than the new areas. I have noticed that the textures are way sharper and the lightning looks better over all compered to the new regions. Also no ugly clipping and flickering distance textures like we see in the new areas.. I.reallt hope they wont touch it to be honest. Landscape difficulty is unfortunately out of balance. I tried to get some challenge by doing quests that are 4 levels higher but its still a faceroll.

    Ah ok, so a few visual touch ups, but none of the cool stuff like expanding the playable area? (like we had in Bree-land and Angmar when the hills were made accessible, for example)

    Following a suggestion from Scenario that the bridge between the Great River and Wildermore might be completed when they visited these zones, I popped over to the river crossing near Stangard to take a look. Unfortunately, there is still no pass here between the Great River and Wildermore.

    Scenario - please can you make this a reality? The more connections between zones that we have, the better!

    Another really cool one would be to link all parts of Fangorn together properly. In the north, the grove above the Roots of Fangorn at the end of the Limlight Gorge is very close to Wildermore - a path out the back of the grove into the Balewood seems like it should be relatively easy to implement, with a gradual move towards snow covered trees.

    Then, in the south, the Balewood can be connected up to the Entwood near the Easeful Mead with a route up the hill from Leaflock's Mead. Using Garran's google map, the two areas are close together and there is already a tree-covered area between the two on the map, so this should be possible. Line the north western side of the route with mountains (as the Misties are right there) and it should be easy to close off the route.

    These changes would allow Fangorn to become a properly vast forest, stretching from the Stonedeans in the south to the Limlight Gorge in the north, to match the sizeable east to west area from Wellinghall to Eomer's Vengeance.

    Please consider this!

    Patch notes say that there have been landscape changes in Dunland. Has anyone seen any significant changes (like increasing the playable area at all)?
