The Lord of the Rings Online: Siege of Mirkwood Preview

Postby GameBanshee News » Sun Sep 06, 2009 6:48 am

Turbine's newly announced The Lord of the Rings Online: Siege of Mirkwood expansion pack has been given <a href="http://pc.ign.com/articles/102/1021849p1.html">the preview treatment</a> over at IGN.<br><blockquote>With the expansion, the level cap is being raised to 65 and legendary items' power can grow up to level 60. Players will also be able to craft second and third age legendary gear for the first time. <br><br>One big feature being introduced is the Skirmish system. Skirmishes are repeatable instances that can be customized to the party's level and size (1, 3, 6 and 12-person). A difficulty level can also be chosen. Party members can get into the skirmish from anywhere in the world and they will return to the location from which they entered after the battle. These are meant to be quick battles lasting from 30-40 minutes each.</blockquote>
