Players can take flight to the reaches of Northern Mirkwood, as made famous by the journeys of Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit. It is here that they will go through two new chapters in the epic story while visiting the Elves and spiders in Mirkwood and the rebuilt Lake-town in the Dale-lands. The update contains over 125 new quests and deeds, as well as a special series of endgame stronghold quests that will go live on March 14th.
Customization options got improved this time around as well. The Dwarves finally received their avatar upgrades and there are more facial options for Humans and Elves. Hobbits? Go home and sit by the fire. But no matter what the race, everyone can now pick up a fiddle and play a merry tune!
