Lord of the Rings Online players can now start exploring the Wildwood zone, located between Bree-land and Evendim.
The level 45 zone is the first mid-level zone added to the game in quite some time, offering all-new quests, missions, and deeds to adventurers.
Beyond the Bree-fields lies the lightly travelled wilderness of the Wildwood. This heavily forested area has drawn the attention of two groups of Free Peoples who vie for its resources. The League of the Axe, a group of game hunters and miners down on their fortunes, seek to tap the land’s resources and ferry their bounty down the Brandywine from Trader’s Wharf to markets abroad. Meanwhile, a group of villagers in Trestlebridge have formed the Woodcutter’s Brotherhood, with the goal of taking advantage of the Wildwood to benefit the folk of Bree-land and rebuild Trestlebridge to its former glory. Both factions must decide the fate of the Wildwood as they work against unsavory Brigands and the Tarkrîp Orcs.
Update 29 also marks the beginning of the Spring Festival which will bring Naruhel the Red-maid, a new Boss from the Vaults, and the Bee’s Big Business festivity instance.
Three-player scaling instances Agoroth, the Narrowdelve and Woe of the Willow, has also been added. These are free for VIPs or can be bought in the in-game store.
Loads of smaller updates and changes have also been implemented. See the full patch notes here.
