Where to StartVolume III, Book 2 starts with Elrond in the Last Homely House in Rivendell.
Some Rewards to Consider
- Most of the chapters award Grey Company reputation, and Item XP. Later chapters also award Enedwaith barter items.
- Chapter 4 includes an enigmatic reward among the choices: Erebrandir's Horseshoe. We don't know what this does (if anything), and the devs aren't saying.
- Chapter 5 offers the Numenorean Uruk-slayer weapon title among the reward choices. You can barter for this title in Enedwaith too.
- Chapter 7 awards a Scroll of Empowerment, and chapter 11 awards a Scroll of Delving.
- Chapter 8 awards a spiffy teal helm, and chapter 15 awards nice teal pants. Neither have radiance but otherwise the stats are quite respectable for a level 65 player.
New Public Dungeon: Minas Elendur + DelothamChapters 6 and 7 send you into a pair of instances that form a new public dungeon in Eregion (48.6S, 6.5W). Minas Elendur is a multi-level zone that sits directly above Delotham. Except for the entrance, every door here takes you to the other zone. And there are lots of doors!
The epic story asks you to find treasure coffers and kill uruks. There's also an optional exploration deed here, "Exploration from Top to Bottom". You'll likely find most of the 23 points-of-interest while completing chapter 7. A few of the points are hidden away in spots that can only be reached from a specific door (in the other zone, of course). It's a puzzle! The following map provides a spoiler, if you need a little help finding those last couple of points.
