  1. Quick Comment. Turbine have said that raid will be an expanded and upgraded version of a epic story instance that will release as part of update 18 (but the raid itself will be with 18.2).
    It seems to be a raid “design choice” that is similar to how the Lothlorien 3-mans of Nala-dum and Lumul-Nar was done. Cool detail that Vyveanne mention was the keyword of “bosses” that indicates that it will NOT be a lair raid like the Erebor instances.

    • Also…. Bilbo is a Burglar, but all Burglars are NOT Bilbo. Plus hobbits (which Burglars are mostly focused towards) are actually known as adept archers, with many of the dedicated warriors to north during the time of Arnor were regiments of talented bowmen.
