Instance Overview

Fight your way thru the Outer and Inner Baileys, as you clear the baileys a large gate will open to the next. In various baileys you will find help from the Golden Host, specifically Cúcheron, Sigileth and Ningloril.

  • If the first flag doesn't go into capture mode, check the nearby "cellar" (on right, looking from where you came from in the beginning) for enemies, since all enemies must be killed before the flag can be captured.
  • After capturing and defending the Inner Bailey you need to go back down the stairs where you came from and find the way up to the bridge crossing the courtyard you previously cleared. The guardian of the Ringwraith's Lair is across this bridge, along the last capture-flag.

Boss and End Fight

The boss fight against the Uluithiad is pretty straight forward.
