New Update for Lord of the Rings Online
A new update has arrived for The Lord of the Rings Online. This update, dubbed â€œAgainst the Shadows,â€ is the second part of the Riders of Rohan instance cluster and features new raids.
â€œThe Bells of Daleâ€ is a six-man raid that has players headed to the kingdom of Dale to ring the city bells and hold of the Easterling invasion as the townsfolk begin their retreat to Erebor; â€œRoad to the Lonely Mountainâ€ is a twelve-man raid that has players protecting the people of Dale as they scale up the Lonely Mountain to reach a dwarven stronghold; â€œThe Fires of Smaugâ€ is a twelve-man raid that has players attempting to stop Easterlings from using a pyre to spray toxic smoke into the mountains; the last one, â€œThe Battle for Erebor,â€ is a twelve-man raid where players are charged with slaying the Olog-hai and driving back the Easterlings for good.
In addition to the above raids, the â€œIn Their Absenceâ€ instances also get updated, primarily increasing the level scales to 65 - 85. The Ost Dunhoth raid has also been split into three separate encounters, retaining the original challenge while allowing players to complete the different parts in any order of their choosing.
