Hero’s Guide to Zelem-melek

Hero’s Guide to Zelem-melek  - Lord of the Rings Online -

Turbine has posted a new guide to Zelem-melek, a goblin and orc infested region in the Mines of Moria.

Once a vault of stately terraces and regal halls, the western half of the heart of Khazad-dûm, called Zelem-melek, now struggles to maintain its majesty against an occupying force of bloodthirsty Orc defilers drawn from the armies of Mordor and Isengard. Snarling Goblin totems gloat before defaced Dwarf statues. Bloody shrines to Sauron stake claims in once-honoured halls for the forces of the Shadow. Brutish Orc camps littered with stripped skulls and broken crystals befoul the air with a gruesome stink.

Yet, despite the woeful work of the Enemy’s vandals, the grandeur of Zelem-melek still endures. The tall passageways of the Terraced Halls defy the reach of Goblins. The glow of ancient, crystalline Dwarf-lamps cuts through the smoke of Orc bonfires. Vast halls and towering columns wrought by the Dwarves of old make the Enemy’s minions seem small and petty—at least from afar.

Zelem-melek, as one of the great works of the Dwarves, endures on its own. But to persist in this time of Shadow, it needs heroes willing to brave the hordes and scratch out victories, big and small, amid the chill and the darkness beneath the earth.
