And god-friggin-dammit, of COURSE it includes another 10 levels. Of course. Because nobody would play it if it didn't, right? Level cap is now 85 (compare to the original cap of 50).
On the plus side, it does have a neat new mounted combat feature (hopefully available BEFORE level 75):
Introducing Mounted Combat – Ride into Combat atop your loyal War-steed as you defend the people of Rohan from the forces of Isengard and Mordor. Customize your War-steed’s armor and level its skills over time to aid you in mounted defense of King Theoden’s lands.
So, yeah. Horse armor. I look forward to seeing what they come up with for the next tier of crafting resources. They seem to have run out of mythical types of wood so the current best is "birch." I guess even the Elves like it when their bow smells like rootbeer.
Launches this Fall. Maybe I can get my 37 up to the current cap by then (or my level 32 Warden, who is from Rohan). Anyone want to help?
