(gets out the crystal ball)

I predict fighting against orcs, goblins, wargs, trolls, and the occasional uruk-hai.

Great news! I can hear the collective groan of all the level 85's who invested everything they had in their Legendary gear ;)

I'm just glad they are still expanding the game. 6 year old game and there is still some pretty strong support for it. That's nice to see considering how much I'm enjoying the game. I hope they make it all the way to Mordor. That would be awesome.
