LoTRO – Eagles

I have a lot of fun playing LoTRO, especially questing and exploring on my own. The other night I found some content that I just loved, a gem nestled in the hills outside Stangard.

I took a quest, Visitor from the North. After checking the map and riding towards the ring, I figured I’d find a guy standing in the woods with a few errands for me. As I drew near, I thought I saw a giant bird…

Wow, a Great Eagle – Landroval! It turns out he and Meneldor were tracking a creature, but Meneldor hadn’t yet returned. The area was infested with spiders, and after slaying several I found a cave entrance.

Meneldor was trapped in webs! I immediately rushed around and down the ramp, only stopping when I reached him.

A bunch of spiders followed me so I had to deal with them.

Meneldor told me I had to defeat a giant spider who lived in the cave, Meneghen. I turned and found him creeping up behind me…

A battle ensued and I stood victorious over the giant arachnid. I quickly freed Meneldor, who then offered to fly me back to Landroval!

They bestowed a new title on me, Friend of the Eagles. I now wear it proudly!

In all seriousness, I had a great time with this little sequence. It could only have been better had the Gollum been the creature that Landroval and Meneldor were tracking (and Gollum had made an appearance)!

  1. Wow so by saving Landroval you are (spoiler!) actually saving Frodo and Sam! I am glad that the giant eagles make an appearance in LOTRO!
