Experience The Epic Climax To The Legacy Of Durin Story!

Following the grueling battles and heavy tolls of the initial assault, Prince Durin and his allies now regroup and prepare their final offensive on the mountain-home of Gundabad, seeking to reclaim their ancestral legacy from the corruption of the Orcs, hobgoblins, and Angmarim that have been infesting it. As the great dwarven army musters, tensions remain high between the Longbeards, Stout-axes, and Zhélruka, threatening to break the already fragile alliance before they can recover and restore their birthright. Meanwhile, thought to be fractured and pushed back by the dwarven victories, the host of Orc-Chieftain Gorgar the Ruthless now unites under the true Lord of Gundabad - the fearsome, great dragon Hrímil Frost-heart - who will stop at nothing to bring an end to Prince Durin and his followers.

Take on new foes, battle as the new Brawler class, forge new Legendary Weapons, and stand at last against Gorgar the Ruthless and Hrímil Frost-heart in a final, decisive battle. Achieve victory and Gundabad will belong to the dwarves once again, and forever! The latest Lord of the Rings Online expansion, Fate of Gundabad, is available for pre-purchase now!

Key Features

Come out swinging as the new Brawler Class
Delighting in the thrill of combat, the Brawler is a heavy armour melee fighter that utilizes Battle Gauntlets to unleash powerful strikes upon their foes. Build your mettle and strike with a flurry of blows to devastate your enemies, or focus on defense to protect your allies.

Prepare for battle with ten new levels
Continue your saga and get ready to fight for the Fate of Gundabad with an increased level cap of 140. Learn new abilities and acquire new equipment to gear up and face off against orcs, hobgoblins, and other fellbeasts that infest Gundabad.

Face new enemies
Gundabad's blight runs deep and reveals never-before-seen foes. Fight back the packs of dangerous Crystal Wargs and avoid the sharp claws of the primordial Ukhrash as you attempt to reclaim Gundabad once and for all.

Explore new areas and wonders
Reclaim the once mighty citadel of Máttugard, uncover the hallowed lake of Gloomingtarn, clear the ruins of Clovengap, and push back the corruption to return beauty to the Pit of Stonejaws. Venture beyond Gundabad to the bleak vale of Câr Bronach where the easternmost marches of the fallen witch-kingdom of Angmar once stood, or to the wind-swept crags of Welkin-lofts along the western slopes of the mountain.

Forge ahead with new Legendary Items and Weapons
Enhance and update your weapons with an all-new Legendary Item system! Find ancient legacies and relics in dusty barrows, or craft them with your own arts. Earn legacies, relics, and runes through daily play with new Seasonal Rewards.

Fight in new Instances and Raid
Join a fellowship to face the challenges of Gundabad in all-new instances, including a final showdown with the Herald of Winter and Lord of Gundabad herself, Hrímil Frost-heart.
