MMORPG.com's Garrett Fuller recently spoke with Lord of the Rings Online Live Producer, Aaron Campbell about the game's most recent progress with the Siege of Mirkwood expansion.
There has been a lot of chatter regarding the Skirmish system; would you explain the dynamics of a Skirmish?
Skirmishes are story-based instances with randomized elements that scale to your chosen group size and level, and a huge variety of level-appropriate rewards. This means you can challenge the might of Dol Guldur solo (with your trusty soldier at your side), or defend The Prancing Pony with a full raid of twelve. Along with a huge variety of Lieutenants and optional encounters you might face, Skirmishes also feature a personal soldier you can command in battle and customize with a variety of roles and appearances. You can join a Skirmish from anywhere in the world using the "Skirmish Join" panel and get into the battle immediately.
