Garth Agarwen is an area within the Lone-lands in the north-eastern region.

The name is Sindarin for "Fortress of the Blood-maid". It is reached via the Outer Gates within the north-eastern area of Agamaur. Services for Garth Agarwen are found at the Outer Gates with a Camp Site Fire, a Mustering Horn, quest givers, and a Travelling Vendor.

For the instances, head eastward past a stairway, past the Créoth encampments for the Barrows; for Arboretum and Fortress, head southwards through a labyrinth of ruins, past a small section of woods, and into an area with gloom-waters and more créoths. At that section is also Temair the Devoted patrolling a platform, heavily guarded by créoths.


Garth Agarwen comprises three World Instances that are aimed at level 32 Small and normal Fellowships. Certain prerequisite quests must be completed.


These landmarks are located within the Garth Agarwen instances:

Instance Overview

Around Barad Dhorn [29.8S, 27.4W] there are quests given for Agamaur, the outside area of Garth Agarwen, and the instance itself. Two of the Agamaur quests must be completed for the last Garth Agarwen quest.

When you reach level 32, the instances of Garth Agarwen are accessible via the "Instance Join" panel. There are three instances: Arboretum, Barrows, and Fortress. They are small fellowship instances, except the fortress which is for a full fellowship. You can be invited to a fellowship at any level.

If you accept the instance you will receive a challenge and one optional objective; two challenges for The Fortress.

Starting from the Outer Gates and going east, you can reach the courtyard of Garth Agarwen. From there you can proceed northeast and reach the Barrows Gate, or you can go south and reach a second courtyard where Temair the Devoted is located. In this courtyard you can find the entrance to the Arboretum (south-west side) and to the Fortress (east side).
