Instance Overview

Fight your way around the hill. There are several fenced sections on the hill, each with a gate. Once you have defeated all the mobs in a section, and have captured the flag, the gate will open and allow you to progress around the hill.

Each flag is on top of a hobbit hole. Once you capture the flag a couple of stout hobbits will appear and assist you in repelling any counter-attacks.
