War of Three Peaks


Key Notes

Updated: May, 3th 2021

Starting points

If you’re 130:

  • The Epic story (2 new chapters of “the Legacy of Durin“) can be resumed at Limlók (Wells of Langflood) where we left Glóin & company.
  • The regional quests start off with Agátur in Skarháld [35.3N, 47.4W]
  • The Rohirric Scholar story-line following Léothred can be resumed at Hlithseld (even if you haven’t done the first part, you can start it here).

If you aren’t at cap / If you want to access the Missions: talk to the “Recruiter” Dwarf near the Stable-master in Thorin’s Hall, Galtrev, 21st Hall, Erebor, etc. You’ll be teleported to the War-Room in Annak-kurfu – you’ll find Durin, Glóin & Ausma straight ahead.


If you’re VIP: talk to Wenda (the VIP Services gal) and she’ll have a new quest that awards a House Decoration – War Table – that you can place in your home and use as a teleport item to the War-room in Annak-kurfu.

*Note: this quest can be picked up by any & all your toons lvl 20+ while you remain VIP and the item is usable by subscribers only.

New Items (lvl 130)

  • Two New Factions
    • The March on Gundabad (Regional Quests)
    • The Gabil’akka (Missions)
    • Both have their currencies cap at 500 (per toon, not account).
  • Task Items: Blackened Claws, Onyx Scales, Savage Beaks, Tufted Ears.
  • New LI Relics for the Crafted Slot!
    • These are available for barter at your Crafting Guild Leader NPC (in any hub) in exchange for 5 Elderslade Supply Packs. These are “Bound to Account”, they’ll go to your Premium Wallet.
    • These Supply Packs are crafted & each requires 1 Ithilharn Shard – the recipe to make them can be found at the Quartermaster (March on Gundabad Faction) in the War-room – you’ll need Acquaintance status, 10 CCG & recipes are “bound to account on acquire”.
    • To be able to actually barter the Packs for the relics you’ll need max. reputation status with your Crafting Guild.
  • New Striking/ Enchantment/ Binding Runes
    • Purples for Barter: 55 Copper Coins of Gundabad
    • Higher tiers (teals & gold): 6-Man and/or Raid drops.
      • Since release, new Barter NPCs have been added (Brillant Elderslade require T2 Shakalush completion + 7,5k Embers while Threshold ones require T2 raid completion + 8,5k Embers)
  • Two New Essences Tiers:
    • T5 – available crafted (4 Solvents or 5 Malleables each) or for Embers (5,5k each).
    • T6 – available as Instances /Raid drops or barterers (7,5k each or 6k each if you have a t1 raid completion).
    • Trigger essences barter unlocks with T4/T5 6-man or raid completion and cost 9,5k Embers.
  • New Virtue Cap: 72 (from 68) which means you’ll need 8,8k per Virtue to bring them back to cap again.
  • New 3-Piece Gold Jewellery Set – Neck, Rings, Pocket
    • Neck & Rings drop in the Bloody Threshold raid T3+ and also can be bartered for outside of Annak-khurfu if you have a T3 completion. They’re bound to account.
    • Pocket can be bartered for 15 Elderslade Supply Packs (+ Kindred Rep standing with the March of Gundabad)
  • New Shields for barter (cost: 65 Copper Coins of Gundabad)
  • New Missions: No Spoilers!

Just one tip: If you’re lvl cap, once you complete the goal a chest will spawn for you to loot and an NPC to port you out. But the chest sometimes spawns at the beginning and this requires you retracing your steps. Warning – you’ll be kicked out after a while whether you find the chest or not.

Each Mission now grants 5 Motes of Enchantment and 2 Gabil’akka Marks.
