So since I haven’t seen any of these yet I am bringing you some pictures of it. There are also some random flying items in the new area. And to quote Cordovan You will no longer see any mobs above level 105 (until...

Battle of the Black Gate First Impressions

Battle of the Black Gate First Impressions

Mar 24, 2017

Update 20 starts by covering the fears of the Host of the West as they make their way toward Mordor. The story quickly moves into what I think is the best session play yet.  Not only do we get to play as Gollum, but we get a really cool foreshadowing of the dangers to come. While the Epic Story starts strong, the side quests are not really anything to write...
