Update 3 Skirmish Updates - MMORPG.com

Turbine devs Bob “Maurath” Hess and Joe “jwbarry” Barry have posted a pair of blogs dedicated to the new skirmishes that Lord of the Rings Online players will find in Update 3. Hess details Attack at Dawn, with Barry introduces players to The Icy Crevasse.

About The Icy Crevasse:

When picking a location for new skirmishes, we want it to be iconic, memorable and someplace we feel hasn't reached its full potential. For Forochel, we've gravitated toward the crevasse that scars the southern section of the region. This space has great visuals, a tight channeled feel, and previously only had a horse route running through it. It also feeds into our story: A sorcerer from Angmar attempting to channel a blizzard through the crevasse and out into the waters of Evendim.

About Attack at Dawn:

When looking over locations we consider a number of different choices such as Nan Wathren, and Ost Galumar in Nan Amulug West. But after looking over several options, we determined that Dol Dínen in the North Downs really lends itself to the format. As both a small and regular-sized fellowship content area we feel that it might allow new players to experience the area and former visitors to experience it in a slightly different light.
