Visiting this location yet another time with my low-level toon, and not having levelled in between, I received a stronger effect and some extra attribute. I wonder why and how the power is yielded. -- Zimoon (talk) 02:49, 10 January 2012 (EST)

This power has nothing to do with visiting that location. It is bestowed on everyone, no matter where they are, when a certain amount of strongholds in the Ettenmoors are held by the Free Peoples (map "turned blue"). Another buff is applied when a relic is taken by the Free Peoples. I forgot the name of that one, but I think it looks like a running wolf with a golden arrow and a red background. This buff disappears when creeps take back strongholds or the relic, applying a positive buff (with different name) to the creeps instead. --Ravanel (talk) 08:08, 10 January 2012 (EST)
Hmmm, I will pay very close attention tonight but I .. was .. quite sure I did not have this icon before visiting the Silverwell, or if it is the water-maiden. I have been wrong before though :) Zimoon (talk) 08:27, 10 January 2012 (EST)
You go pay very close attention... this buff coming from the well... you really made my day! xD
Just read the description in the tooltip, it clearly shows what I said. Zimoon, you eternal disbeliever, do you even play in the Ettenmoors yourself? Apparently the freeps took the strongholds around the time you arrived at that well. Everyone else in Middle-earth also got the buff at that time. I wonder what you would've made up if it got applied to you when you were in the middle of Bree. It's not like I've been playing this game for five years and seen this buffs numerous times or something... Anyway, have fun imagining things! :P --Ravanel (talk) 08:56, 10 January 2012 (EST)
PS Perhaps get a look at the correctly spelled page Enhanced Abilities. Looks like the buff gets stronger depending on how many keeps are taken (the info you entered was from Peace and Quiet - you've mixed up the names). ;-)
You are of course right. And I must not have paid that close attention to what was added or not. One thing is added though, +4 Hope. Whether that is from the well or from Willowsong is another story ;)
The hope is from the well (or well, from being in the vicinity of the water-maiden, to be lore correct). --Ravanel (talk) 12:15, 10 January 2012 (EST)
But what have I done to deserve your condescending tone? :( Zimoon (talk) 12:00, 10 January 2012 (EST)
Not believing me! And don't worry: I wasn't condescended, on the contrary, you really brightened my day. I was just mocking you a little bit. I hope you can forgive me. --Ravanel (talk) 12:15, 10 January 2012 (EST)
