Lord of the Rings Online’s Update 23 Where Dragons Dwell is live today

Lord of the Rings Online’s Update 23 is rolling out today – apparently, it’s even taking some folks who don’t frequent social media by surprise. BAM, dragons! Players will be traveling through the next two chapters of the Black Book of Mordor, which takes them into Erebor’s three new zones.

“Update 23 features a journey into the homelands and histories of the dwarves, including the Longbeard descendants of Durin the Deathless. Beginning with an expanded Erebor, you will adventure into the fabled Iron Hills, and finally arrive in the lost dwarf kingdoms of the Grey Mountains. The Where Dragons Dwell Quest Pack is free to VIPs and Lifetime Account members, and includes more than 120 quests and deeds, along with three resource instances, a new Instance cluster, and releasing soon – a new raid! These new Instances are currently available to play up to Tier 2 difficulty, and a new Tier 3 difficulty will be released soon! Tier 3 is a new challenge level that replaces the former T2C difficulty, and offers a new challenge in addition to new rewards.”

There are also new heads and hair for hobbits, a level cap bump to 120, the stat revamp, a lootbox overhaul, new playable bassoons, the new featured instance rotation, and new traits. Anybody going back for the new goodies?
