3 New Regions
Blackroot Vale Mountain towns hold strong after the Army of the Dead has marched through the Vale. Threats from the mountains and from the valley remain. Is there something at work here? Or is this merely the wilds acting amiss? These people need your help.
Lamedon Farming villages lay quiet in the deep valleys on your path to Dol Amroth. Working their land has made them blind to the dangers that have seized their shores. Corsairs have made their way north and now, more than ever, pose a real threat to the people in this region. Can you help them stem the tide?
Belfalas The Ocean lies near. The abandoned Elven village of Edhellond awaits your gaze and Dol Amroth, the stronghold in this area, awaits your sword. The beaches stir as ships dock, bringing more Corsairs ashore. The air in Dol Amroth, however, is calm. Few know what is truly upon them.
New slotted equipment can be found throughout Middle-earth! Upgrade these armor pieces with Essences that hold great power. Find Essences, or craft them using elements you find in your travels!
