Description

The Cross-roads is a landmark within South Ithilien in Eastern Gondor. [63.3S, 5.1W]
At this intersection, the north-south road from Mordor to Harad crosses the east-west road from the Morgul Vale to Osgiliath.
An ancient gondorian statue sits at the center of the cross-roads, but has recently been defiled by Orcs.

Special notice

"North and South Ithilien are now connected by the Crossroads. Note that content in North Ithilien takes place after the Battle of Pelennor Fields, so it is recommended that players complete Volume IV Book 6 before adventuring there." '
This also implies that both versions: Osgiliath and Osgiliath (After Battle), are also available at this crossroads. If travelling from South Ithilien, the boundary to Ithilien is on the north side, and access is to Osgiliath. If travelling south the boundary is on the south side and access is to Osgiliath (After Battle).
  • Note also: Turbine has referred to this same location in two different manners: as the Cross-roads and as the Crossroads. In game at the location the name is now Cross-roads as at 2021, and will be used by the wiki.
