Part 2 of the angmar experience is mostly travel across time, “old-school” and (technically not) first Raid instance in lotro. Both Barad Gularan (BG from now) and The rift of nurz ghashu (the Rift) werent in the game at launch, but most will remember it as they were.

Barad gularan, Carn dum, The rift and Urugarth. As classic as instance go thesedays these can hardly be beaten. When people go nostalgic, they linger in the memories of Mordrith and Thaurlach.
