Update 35.1.2 Release Notes

Here are the release notes for Update 35.1.2, released on Wednesday, May 3rd, 2023. 

Of Special Note:

Gwathrenost, the Witch-king's Citadel has arrived!

"Once the seat of the Witch-king of Angmar, the dread citadel of Gwathrenost casts a long shadow upon the city of Carn Dûm. All but abandoned after the Steward of Angmar was deposed, the remnants of the Iron Crown have crept forth from the shadows, seeking to master a lost artifact of the Witch-king and reclaim dominion over the realm."

Players who wish to aid in the fight against the Iron Crown should travel to Bail Avarc in Angmar. Bail Avarc can be reached via the stable-masters at Esteldín, Gath Forthnír, and Rivendell. Bail Avarc can initially only be accessed via stable-master routes. Travel skills are also available for barter from the Stewards of the Iron-home.

Gwathrenost, the Witch-king's Citadel is a new 12-person Raid for Level 140 Players set in a re-imagined Carn Dûm! This Raid will be available on Tiers 1 and 2 at 12:00 PM Eastern, Wednesday May 3rd.
