Back-story: On Phasing and Quest Progression

In newer parts of the game, including the Enedwaith region, Turbine has implemented a game technology called phasing which causes the visibility of NPCs to change depending on your progress through the game. For instance, when you first arrive at Echad Dagoras, you will not see Amarion and Dagoras. After completing quests to find and rescue them from other locations, they will become visible at Echad Dagoras and will no longer be visible (to you) at their initial locations. These invisible NPCs are still present: they are selectable using the keyboard, but you can not otherwise interact with them.

To further confuse things, many of the rangers in the Grey Company, i.e., those that existed prior to the Mirkwood expansion, continue to appear at their original locations around Eriador.

Additionally, Enedwaith is one of the first areas where quests start to be "gated". Unlike the older areas, where a player usually could jump in anywhere and do quests everywhere in an area, in Enedwaith there is a sense of progression, and the quest storyline brings the player from the beginning (Echad Dagoras) to the ultimate end (Hall of the Huntsman, visiting every quest hub at least once. However, the quests are not yet fully gated; a player could decide to skip everything and start questing in the Mournshaws right away.

In each of the seven regions of Enedwaith, one or more quest hubs, such as Echad Dagoras, Zudrugund, and Echad Daervunn, offer the player usually 1-3 quests. Completing these quests will open up quest chains, which usually end up with the quest giver sending the player to another quest hub. But this vector it not mandatory in order to quest at the new location.

Starting with the next region Dunland and getting a more finalized version in The Great River, quest gating has become the standard for LotRO up until at least West Rohan. In this format, there are no "open" quest hubs except the one the player starts with, allowing for a full progression throughout the region.

The list of quests below is compiled in such a way that a player entering Enedwaith from the North will be able to do all quests in this order. As stated, the player can also skip one or more areas and start questing in the first quest hub of the next area.
