- A new region known as The Wastes will be comprised of 3 zones: Dagorlad, the Noman-lands and The Slag-Hills (see the preview vids below)
- These new zones will have more flowers to pick and barter with, 6 of which will be new. The new flowers are: Mournweed, Eye-of Night, Evengleam, Bonemallow, Dusknettle and Wraithscowl
- New crafting mat farming instances
- A new series of barter items for reputation and jewelry
- 3 new cosmetic pets will be added to The Wastes, all of them dogs. One is received as part of a quest line and the other two are bartered for. Here is a screenshot of one of the dogs posted on the LOTRO Players website.
- One small change, unrelated to the the new zone, is that the cost of Small Reputation Acceleration Tomes was increased in the skirm camps costing more marks and medallions than they currently do. Feedback to this change was not positive so the cost was reduced slightly from what it had been but will still be an increase to the current cost which is 60 marks and 6 medallions. This cost is according to the LOTRO Wiki site and I have yet to confirm just what the new cost of the this tome will be.
- Several new cosmetic items will be added including shields, swords and floral backpacks. Please see the images below:
