Update 20 is introducing over 100 new quests and Deeds for level 105 players, including the titular event which sees the Host of the West confront the might of the Enemy’s army. Players will also be tasked with quests to help pave the way for Aragorn’s safe arrival, scout the area and fight against Orcs and Blighted wildlife through quests in the new Dagorlad zone.

The new update will also introduce two new Resource Instances in the form of Maggot-holes and Tower of the Teeth. These instances can be taken up in either solo, Fellowship or public dungeon modes. Update 20 will also bring new Roving Threats and Flora quests as well as the expected adjustments to the game’s classes.
