Lord of the Rings Online Teases Strange Occurrences Near Oatbarton
Lord of the Rings Online is teasing a new in game event with a letter of complaint from an irate hobbit out of Oatbarton. The complaint has been lodged with the Mayor of Michel Delving, who would be the appropriate authority in a case like this. Apparently a dark, ominous monolith that is oozing stinking fumes has appeared in Bungo Grubb’s prize pipe-weed field. His crops are withered, and anyone curious enough to approach the pillar with is filled with Dread.
When you talk to Bungo, there’s a hint that there will be more to come and that these rotting rocks may soon spread across Middle Earth like a plague.
If you’re planning on journeying to Oatbarton to investigate, bear in mind that it is not a starting area. It contains quests more tailored to levels 20-30. If you’re a low-level character, stick to the roads and you should be fine.
