Book 11: Defenders of Eriador

Book 11: Defenders of Eriador -

Turbine has released detailed information about the content of Book 11: Defenders of Eriador, the next major content update for Lord of the Rings Online. Highlights of Book 11 include updates to the minstrel and the lore-master, over 60 new quests including the continuation of the epic story arc and the underground dungeon of Nûrz Ghâshu, the much anticipate addition of player housing, and more.

When we sat down to design a Housing System for The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar (LOTRO), we wanted to make good on the promise made an age ago: "Now You Can Live in Middle-earth."

Houses are more than an apartment interior floating in the ether. Houses in LOTRO live in gorgeously landscaped neighborhoods, where they have yards, sit along water, or nestle under cliffs.

One size does not fit all! Players want choices about how their house looks, where they want to live, and who they want to live with, so we are offering a variety of options to fit many tastes.

Houses are decorative and beneficial. They are fun to dress up and host parties at, but they also give the owner tangible benefits.

We set out to give choices to the Men, Hobbits, Elves, and Dwarves of Middle-earth. In LOTRO Housing, you choose from...

  • Four different racially-styled homesteads (landscaped areas containing many different houses). Each homestead has a distinctive architectural style and environment.
  • Up to 250 instanced neighborhoods to each homestead, so you can settle down near your friends.
  • Thirty different houses per neighborhood: 4 kinship houses, 10 deluxe personal houses, and 16 standard personal houses.
  • Over 250 decorations to mix-and-match, including paint for walls and floors, rugs, bookshelves, welcome mats, scenic paintings, even background music!
