New Player Question (Aerindys)

What is a Reflecting Pool, and how does it work?




  • Ran 3 of 4 Fornost on Marvlus my fetching lady dwarf hunter on the stream with Arathaert…surprise, we kept wiping on Shadow
  • Ran all kinds of errands around Houses of Healing with Teri and Sanswinda
  • Had my first PUG experiences doing the box runs, kept dying when fighting Coldbear the Wight (even after he was dead!)



  • Heard Merry’s tale of the Ent Moot, which was highly amusing.
  • Tried sneaking through Minas Tirith avoiding knowing scholars with little success. Took a break to use a reflecting pool for the first time before successfully finding my way through Minas Tirith with the helpful directions of Teri and Maven.
  • Rode a heavy warsteed pretending to be a champion. It was not pretty or easy, but the story was pretty cool.



  • Discovered Elfhelm’s Secret.
  • Landroval!Teri got a makeover for post-battle Minas Tirith.
  • Finally got that last encounter for Strike Against Dannenglor: Teri is 4 skirmishes away from Skirmisher of Middle-earth!



  • My main warden finally completed the Bingo Boffin story
  • My champion reached level 46 and is failing at the class quest.
  • During the field trip, we ran Pony and Attack at Dawn before continuing Wildermore
