Turbine has released a set of screenshots showing the elite group of Warbands included with the Riders of Rohan expansion. These elite groups of mounted enemies roam the plains, traveling long distances and can quickly overcome unwary adventurers. Along with the Warbands, anyone can go against these marauders due to the new “open tapping” combat rules included in the expansion. This ensures that more than one player can get credit and experience for defeating enemies in mounted combat, even when ungrouped, encouraging cooperation towards common goals. The expansion releases on September 5.
