    A wide-open region of low, craggy hills, arid riverbeds and ancient Elven ruins from a time of great prosperity, Eregion sits between the Trollshaws in the north and Enedwaith in the south, and marks the sole passage from Eriador into Moria and Rhovanion in the east. Also known as Hollin, it was a kingdom of the Noldorin Elves during the Second Age, ruled by Galadriel and Celeborn until they left for Lothlorien, and then ruled by Celebrimbor, who, deceived by Sauron (under the guise of the Lord of the Gifts, Annatar), here forged the Rings of Power. When Sauron's treachery was revealed, Eregion was laid waste and the surviving Elves fled to Lindon, Lothlorien and Rivendell.

    Aaron acted as our tour guide, powering us through some of the new instances and explaining some of the new features as we went. Our first stop was the Glacier Fortress, a new instance set in Forochel.
