Lord of the Rings Online begins testing Update 36 and the King’s Gondor region

Bullroarer is open for business in Lord of the Rings Onlineand this particular run on the test server is a big deal as it features some highly anticipated content – most notably: King Gondor.

“King’s Gondor is the latest level 140 region to be introduced LOTRO as part of Update 36″, Standing Stone Games says. “This region is set after the Battle of Pelennor Fields and the Great Marriage of Aragorn and Arwen. Gone are the gloomy dark skies, replaced by bright and sunny fields and hills! If you’re familiar with the original regions of Central and East Gondor, you’re broadly familiar with King’s Gondor from a navigational perspective as well. There are some new additions where impassable spots have been demolished in places to allow for more exploration and bring a freshness to an old region.”

However, there is more to test than just the new zone; The Paths of Valor landscape difficulty system has been optimized and ported over the Treebeard version, the siege mechanics have been switched to PvMP, and several older instances have joined the Delvings system. Bullroarer is open until tomorrow night, but if you miss the window, don’t worry: it always opens a few times before takeoff.
