Mirkwood

Mirkwood is a region found within the land of Rhovanion.

(Sindarin for Wood of Greenleaves), also known as Eryn Lasgalen, encompasses a dense and heavy woodland from the eastern shores of the river Anduin to the dreaded fortress of Dol Guldur. Its natural land features included (in the northern part of the forest) the Mountains of Mirkwood, a sizable river referred to in Tolkien's map as the Forest River, that ran from the Grey Mountains down to Long Lake, and a smaller river that ran from the Mountains of Mirkwood to join with the Forest River west of the Elven-king's Halls.

Note: Characters must complete the foreword quest chain for Vol. II. Book 9 to unlock the public instance of Mirkwood (your character's first experience within Mirkwood). You will enter the normal Mirkwood when you finish an instance concerning the assault on the gates leading to the Dourstocks.

Lore

Mirkwood-icon.png

Mirkwood is a name used for two distinct fictional forests in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium.

In the First Age, the highlands of Dorthonion north of Beleriand were known as Mirkwood after falling under Morgoth's control. Along with the rest of the region west of Ered Luin, this forest disappeared after the cataclysm of the War of Wrath, although a few of its peaks may have survived as an island far off the coast of Lindon.

In the Second Age, the large forest in Rhovanion, east of the Anduin in Middle-earth, was was known as Greenwood the Great.

During the Third Age, that large forest in Rhovanion, east of the Anduin in Middle-earth, was called Mirkwood after falling under the influence of Sauron, in his guise as the Necromancer.

After Sauron's destruction at the conclusion of the Third Age, Mirkwood was cleansed by Galadriel and became known as Eryn Lasgalen, Sindarin for "the Wood of Greenleaves".
