Welcome back! In Part One of my article, Another Look at Moria, we explored a bit in Eregion and talked about the first few zones within Moria itself. In this next installment, I'd like to break down the other zones within the mines, and I'm also going to talk about the epic dungeons within the new area and the new legendary weapon system. First, let's dive back into the zones within Moria and pick up where we left off.

The Waterworks - Going south through the Silvertine Lodes will put you squarely inside the Waterworks, part of the Lower Levels within Moria. The Waterworks is set up like an elaborate system of aqueducts. The quest hub within The Waterworks is The Rotting Cellar, located in the northeastern most part of the Waterworks. You can get many quests here, as this is a great zone for XP leveling around 55-56. Some of the best screenshots within Moria can be captured in the Waterworks. Just be careful entering and exiting, because here, among many other places in Moria, you can "fall" to your defeat. Once you complete the quests contained within the Waterworks, you should be around level 56 or so. Contained within the Waterworks is the entrance to the 12-person epic raid dungeon for The Watcher in the Water. Just head to the far southwestern edge of the zone and you can't miss it. The orange lights beckon to you like something that truly doesn't belong in the bluish gloom of the Waterworks.
