Misty Mountains is a region found within the land of Eriador.

Misty Mountains, also named the Hithaeglir (Sindarin for Range of Mist Mountains), was a mountain range that ran 1280 kilometres (795.35 miles) from Mount Gundabad in the far north to Methedras in the south between Eriador and the valley of the Anduin and Rhovanion. An early version of this range's name was Ered Hithui (Sindarin for Misty Mountains).

The region largely consists of towering mountain ridges, snowy vales, rocky crags and hills, as well as spruce and fir forests pocketed throughout. Warmer sections like Western Bruinen Source and South High Pass, while still snow-covered, have sections of flowing water breaking through the icy cracks around them. The Misty Mountains is the main source to many large rivers, Bruinen and Mitheithel being two of the rivers flowing westwards, and Nimrodel, one of many rivers flowing eastwards.

Lore

Once Melkor created the Misty Mountains to hinder the Valar from riding about freely into the north and east, and the hunter Oromë in particular. Thus Oromë created the High Pass even before the dawn of dwarves. Later, Mount Gundabad is said to be the legendary birthplace of Durin the Deathless, the First Father of the Dwarves. He founded Khazad-dûm at the centre of the Misty Mountains, known as Moria in Sindarin, and begun mining within. The most precious ore found was Mithril, sought for far and wide by Elves, by dwarves from other realms, and by the very few Men who had been taught the arts of smithing this wondrous metal. The wealth of the dwarves of Khazad-dûm grew tremendously. Thus, inside the mountains the dwarves built magnificent halls, stairs, and of course passages from west to east. They also built roads to connect the High Pass with the Great East Road and with Mirkwood. All of this happened already in the First Age.

While mining for Mithril in III 1980 the dwarves happened to wake a Balrog, or perhaps to open its dwelling, the one which became known as "Durin's Bane"; if this was by accident or by greed nobody knows. The Balrog forced the dwarves to escape and desert their glorious kingdom.

Over time also orcs and goblins had established themselves where they found safe chasms or where they could excavate their settlements. From the time the dwarves deserted Moria and until today, the dark caverns and high passes of the Misty Mountains are given over almost entirely to the creatures of the Dark Lord Sauron. Yet in the current era of Lotro, relics and corpses of strange creatures from older times linger in ice and snow. Fell spirits are rumoured to travel to the Misty Mountains in a wish to make un-dead what could potentially become most dangerous threats to the Free Peoples.
