Ok, so I am level 52 now, but I am not ready yet to go into Moria. I want to get most of East Angmar and Eregion done before I head in there.
However, I need some magnificent hides to advance my tailoring/foresting further.
I have come across a handful of level 51 mobs in southern Eregion, not many though.
Is there anywhere in Eriador that has an area suitable for getting magnificent hides? Or is going into Moria my only realistic choice?
The only place in Eriador that currently has mobs that would drop those hides is Eregion, I found a decent drop from goats near the Redhorn Pass. Other then that, you're going to have to head into Moria. The other option of course would be to try and sell your tier 5 hides on the AH and see if you can buy some tier 6 hides with the profits.
