Official Update 10 Screenshots Released

February 21, 2013


Today Turbine released some new official screenshots of the second part of the Riders of Rohan instance cluster. I haven’t seen a release date of Update 10 just yet (LOTRO’s site says “Coming Soon”) but we’ll let you know when we see it!

The Bells of Dale [6-Man Raid]

Even as open war threatens Gondor and Rohan far to the south, allies of Mordor make their advance upon the Lonely Mountain. Travel north to the kingdom of Dale where the cruel Easterlings have already begun their assault. Help Brand ring the city bells and hold the line against enemy forces while the townsfolk begin their retreat to the safety of Erebor.

Road to the Lonely Mountain [12-Man Raid]

With the conflict in Dale now behind, you must protect the people of Dale on their flight to the Lonely Mountain. Seeking to prevent a length siege, the enemy will surely move to crush the exposed defenders before they reach the dwarven stronghold. Gather all your strength for the road to the mountain is long and the enemies are many!

The Fires of Smaug [12-Man Raid]

Safely inside the massive gates of Erebor, the men and dwarves of the north are prepared to withstand a long siege. However, scouts have reported the Easterlings constructing a large pyre near one of the mountain vents that billows with dark, noxious gas. Slay the Easterlings and destroy the pyre before the toxic smoke fills the mountain.

The Battle for Erebor [12-Man Raid]

After weeks of holding back the enemy siege, word reaches the defenders of the Lonely Mountain that the One Ring has been destroyed and the tide is turning in the south. Intent on bringing the siege to an end, the enemy’s most powerful soldiers have issued a challenge to the finest defenders beneath the mountain. Become the champions of Erebor and slay the towering Olog-hai, driving the Easterlings from the north forever!

    I hope that this doesn’t mean that they will never make those regions. . .

    We will never see these regions. We may not even see Mordor.

    The Burglar in the Fires of Smaug screenshot seems to be wearing a Robin mask. Is that new?

      That helm has been in the game since Rohan launch. It is a level 85 crafted medium armour helm. It’s a one-shot recipe that requires a tarnished crest to make. The recipe is also available as one of the weekly cooldown recipes from the tailor’s guild. There are 4 different outputs for the recipe and the names all end in “Helm of Éomer”.
