Update 11: Treachery of the White Hand Announced for The Lord of the Rings Online

May 7,2013 by Eleanor

The Lord of the Rings Online has announced that its latest the 11th Update called “Treachery of the White Hand” is coming soon, bringing adventurers to the remote region of Wildermore, a Rohan area hard hit by a deadly winter caused by a Stone Giant in the rumor and thusly needs restoring to its past prosperity. With the new chapter in the epic story, players will venture into five new areas and also enjoy some improvement listed in the following.

Lord of the Rings Online

Five New Areas to Explore:

  • Writhendowns: All word from Wildermore has ceased and rumors point to the worst. You must find and aid the town of Scylfig, which suffers from a strangely deepening winter and an Uruk-hai threat.
  • The Fallows: Uruk-hai invaders have torched the region’s farms, slaying many and driving the survivors from their homes. You must ride into the smoldering remains to help drive out the evil tides of Núrzum’s raiders before meeting with the brooding Reeve of Wildermore.
  • Whitshaws: As the brutal winter rages, many folk have gone missing, and the small village of Dunfast is in dire need of protection. You must follow in the wake of Núrzum’s destruction, but can you find him in time? Face marauding Warbands as you race to save the people of Dunfast.
  • High Knolls: The town of the High Knolls, Byre Tor, long held out against the powers of Núrzum, but now has fallen to the beastly enemy.  Venture among forbidding crags in search of the city’s hunted refugees, but use caution, for whispers warn that the Knolls are thick with Saruman’s minions!
  • Balewood: In the unruly, northern expanses of Fangorn Forest, the Darkness has taken hold.  In the Balewood, violent Huorns and Wood-trolls prowl and Saruman’s Uruk-hai linger. You must gather young Ents to rally against the growing corruption.

Note: The Wildermore Quest pack is free to VIPs.

Also New to Update 11:

  • Mounted Combat Revamp: New class-specific traits now enhance your mounted combat skills, while bonuses to mobility have been moved from traits to your base steed.
  • Hobbit Presents: Another reason to get in the game! All players will receive a Silver Hobbit Present each day they log in to LOTRO. Rewards vary from common to legendary and are tailored to your logged-in character’s level and class.
  • New VIP Benefits: Improved offerings for VIPs, including a custom character portrait frame, improved bonus experience system and better Hobbit presents.
