Instance Overview

Doom of Caras Gelebren is a defensive skirmish with four stages to defend. As you are forced to pull back deeper into the city, a blanket of +5 Dread will close around the House of the Mírdain. Be wary of straying too far from the NPC Mírdain at each point.

The first assault is against a watchtower on a lower level of the city. Enemies can come from either downhill to the north or south.

The second assault comes against the gate uphill from the watchtower. Follow Faeldor to this point.

For the third assault, withdraw to just inside the gate. Attacks can come either against the northern gate (where the second assault was) or the southern, a short distance through the gardens. Watch for messages announcing which gate the enemy is marching against in solo, or split your party as evenly as you can between the two in larger groups.

For the fourth assault, withdraw to the House of the Mírdain, where Celebrimbor stands. Enemies will come from all directions (except from the House itself). The fifth assault comes against the House of the Mírdain as well, as will the final battle with a champion of the Enemy.
