With Christmas right around the corner, we'd like to take the opportunity to talk about Eastereggs - hold up.
With Christmas right around the corner, we'd like to take the opportunity to talk about Elves! Earlier in the year, we already explained how to find Edain's hidden mission by showing the example of a Mordor mission.
Next up are several Elven missions that you can already play on the current patch. Let's start with a scenario that was added in 4.5.4:
Mission 1: The Attack on the Golden Wood
Take control of the Woodelves and experience the orcs invade Lothlórien, shortly after Haldir and his two brothers discovered the armies of evil.
To start this mission you have to play as Lorien on the map 'Woods of Lorien'. Place yourself at the left location, without a second player (neither AI nor human).
If you're mostly looking to experience the story, deactivate Ringheroes and the mission will be very easy do complete. Activating Ringheroes on the other hand will make it a bit more challenging.
Your settings need to look like this.
Don't forget to adjust the difficulty by either deactivating Ringheroes (easy)
or activating them (medium)
Have fun playing and enjoy the advent season!
