Upon reaching level 10, you’ll be able to choose to follow Elladan or Elrohir (Elrond’s sons) and gain honor through deed completion. By completing these deeds and gaining honor, you’ll be added to a leaderboard.
To begin, head to Bree-town or Gondamon and join Elladan or Elrohir’s faction. If you accept a quest from them, you’ll be able to take part in combat against those from the opposing faction. This is one way to earn honor.
Keep in mind, the only safe zones will be in Gondamon and Bree-town. Additionally, it’s worth noting that no experience can be gained in any instance after level 10 during the time of this event, including Instance Finder and quest instances.
The post also points to some fixes as part of this update:

- Fixed a problem where housing decorations on yard hooks in interior spaces would disappear when being moved.
