The Lord of the Rings Online: Siege of Mirkwood is the second expansion for The Lord of the Rings Online, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) set in Middle-earth during the time of The Lord of the Rings.



Siege of Mirkwood opens up environments in southern Mirkwood. The level cap is raised to 65. It also includes new traits, virtues, skills and class quests. A new "skirmish" system allows for repeatable, randomised and scaleable combat based instances that can be accessed from anywhere in the game world for 3, 6 and 12 players and a new 12 player raid takes place in Dol Guldur.[1]


Unlike Mines of Moria where the epic story line shared the same title as the expansion, Siege of Mirkwood's epic story line is titled Volume III: Allies of the King.

Book I - Oath of the Rangers

Elrond received a mysterious message from Galadriel, telling him to gather the Rangers of the North and send them to Rohan to help Aragorn. The player is summoned to the Last Homely House and given a list of Rangers to recruit: Radanir, Candaith, Saeradan, Halros, Halbarad, Calenglad, Lothrandir, Corunir and Golodir.
