Lore

The Deeping-coomb is the name of the valley in the White Mountains within which Helm's Deep is located, with a river known as the Deeping-stream flowing through it from the Glittering Caves. Within the context of the Epic Battle it is the area enclosed by the White Mountains and the Deeping Wall, where the Battle of the Hornburg continued after the wall was overrun and destroyed by Saruman's forces on March 3 TA.[1][2] The word coomb, meaning 'deep valley', comes from the Old English word cumb, which in term comes from the Welsh word cwm.[3][4]

Instance Overview

Saruman's sorcery destroyed the Deeping Wall and has driven the disorganized, retreating Rohirrim into the Deeping-coomb.

Walkthrough

First Assault The battle will begin with constant waves of enemies attacking either the left, the Hornburg side, or the right, the Glittering Cave side. The lack of siege weapons may discourage Engineers, but Rank 3 Engineers may take advantage of the crated materials to build some. They can use Barricades to slow the enemy's advance while firing a catapult or ballista. The banners will require your attention as they do not heal as Soldiers do. Typically, the Sappers will focus on one or two banners at a time. A Rank 3 Officer can have Commanders prioritize Sappers to make them easier to handle.

Second Assault The last attack will be on the opposite side from when you began. If you have siege weapons set up, aim them accordingly. Overall, there's nothing terribly difficult about the battle itself other than the side objectives. For this, a partner is highly recommended.

Notes Proper placement of barricades can significantly aid in reducing overall damage taken to the soldiers. Likewise, being able to move them will also help utilize them effectively in all parts of the fight.

Rewards

All Epic Battles pull from the same rewards pool see Main article: Epic Battle Rewards
Rewards are based on the Metals achieved during the instance. There are four metals; Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum. Higher metals offer better rewards. Most Epic Battles will have a main objective and several side objectives. Each objective completed will give a metal. Players will receive at least 2 metals per instance (2 pool of rewards) but can earn far more. Larger size Epic Battles have more objectives and reward more metals.

There are five rewards given for each Metal:

  • Epic Reward Points-icon.png Epic Battle Promotion Points for first time Metals or when a higher level Metal is awarded for an objective already complete
