New content is heading to Lord of the Rings Online with Shades of the Past, also known as Update 7. The content will include a new skirmish for levels 70-75 for all group sizes and solo players, and it will be free for VIPs. While a new skirmish is always a welcome addition, Turbine is also revamping Fornost by splitting it into four, scalable six-man fellowships for levels 30-75 and it’s spit-polishing Moria as well as giving it a much-needed quest restructuring. The update should be on the Bullroarer test server soon, and the update should land in the main game sometime before June 5. Thanks, A Casual Stroll to Mordor.
