Descendant of the Mearas

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Descendant of the Mearas is a horse that suddenly appears in Eriador, no one knowing from whence it came or why. Characters of all classes may engage in its adventures until it eventually finds its way to its ancestors.

  • Completing the deed Discovering the Descendant will make available two final quests in which this horse eventually will meet a most legendary horse. Then it become clear that this horse indeed is a "Descendant of the Mearas" and it was coming from lands far away from where it first appeared.

The horse, quests, and deeds became available in June 2012 to players who pre-ordered the Riders of Rohan expansion.

This "series" was designed to introduce the player community to various concepts of Mounted Combat... and more especially to the capabilities and lore of the of the War-steed when it was to be introduced later with the release of the Riders of Rohan expansion.

Different capabilities were experimental but were not carried forward when Riders of Rohan was released.
