Yuck @ the "equip traits, corruptions, and skills regardless of Rank." Sethladan 14:05, 24 September 2011 (EDT)

Major revamp to the Ettenmoors coming with Riders of Rohan release

See the Dev Diary for details:

The Ettenmoors is a unique place within the world of LOTRO; a corner of Middle-earth that allows players the ability to take up the banner of Sauron and openly battle against the forces of good. Over the course of LOTRO’s lifetime, the Ettenmoors has been updated several times.

"This is not one of those times. This is a new beginning; this is a reincarnation."

"We have a plan that is bold and will fundamentally shift things in The Ettenmmoors to be both what we want, and what we've gathered the playerbase wants."

Description of Moors changes in ROR from a post.

I haven't been to the "new moors," but this is from a forum post:

"did some exploring of the Moors on my creep. EC is now at old Lug rez. OC is now at old TR rez. Bridges can not be taken. They are tied to the keep. There are backdoors into keeps that take you into the old flag room. The enemy can not enter this way, not sure if they can exit that way though. The Delving has an entrance to OC. There is a new bridge next to Isen outpost that crosses the river and connects Candy Mountain to the Isen outpost area. Freep rez circle is on top of Candy Mountain. Creep rez is near EC but closer to River outpost. I didn't see any freeps when I was on so didn't get to do any fighting but my rank 15 WL had 28.5k morale. The back door entrances seem good for keep defenders trying to get upstairs to defend a Tyrant rather than trying to run thru hallways and up stairs."
