    Siege of Mirkwood is hands down one of the best expansion packs that has come out for an mmo in a long time. Tons of new content and items, along with a really well done storyline. One of the biggest parts of the game, is skirmishes. These are small instances in which you control a soldier that you customize to how you want it. They are fast and fun, and really can get pretty exciting. Siege of Mirkwood is hands down one of the best expansion packs that has come out for an mmo in a long time.

Another really great part of this expansion, was you basically got it for free if you bought a multimonth package. So all in all, can't be beat. Expand

    So yea its a 20Dollar patch but, well....Whats not to like? New dungeons, beautiful scenery, and a sense that you are helping in the fight against Dol Guldur, as well as a continuation on the Epic story, I'll gladly pay for quality.

    Game overall plays better. Alot of polish to existing content. Players can now talk to npcs from mounts and do other things on mounts which is awesome. The public landing to mirkwood itself was incredible. You could feel the intensity and the chaos of war. Kudos to the sound and music team for further selling the atmosphere!

    Doesn`t matter even it`s not a big one, quality brings the victory. Great improvements: skirmish, mount stuff etc. Dol Guldur FTW!

  1. It might not be the biggest MMORPG launch of the year, what with no new races or classes, but there's no denying the quality in The Siege of Mirkwood. It's a great addition to an already solid online experience, delivering more content for the loyal fan base and giving prospective players a great excuse to jump into Middle Earth for the first time.
  2. Mirkwood is a great expansion, but compared to Moria, its quest and instance content is fairly limited. This is because the expansion was also introducing the Skirmish system, an entire new area of the game.
  3. Turbine has given Mirkwood the same amount of love and great gameplay that Moria and Shadows of Angmar have and they have thrown in a great new gameplay mechanic with the skirmish system. On top of all of that, a lot of the little things were polished.
