    Roving Threat Master Location List

    With new RTs introduced on Bullroarer, I'm starting a working thread with all Roving Threat locations, similar to what we did with Central Gondor. I'm including the Central Gondor RTs here as well, for completeness.

    Quick Overview:

    1. RTs now appear in Western Gondor, Central Gondor, Forochel, Angmar, and Misty Mountains. In the new zones, there is a RT Quartermaster who both gives the daily quest to kill the RT, and also serves as a barter vendor.
    2. Completing a RT quest gives you 1 or 3 Gift-Giver Brands, which are the RT barter currency. Brands also can drop from the RTs themselves when you kill them.\
    3. As of now, you have to talk to the Quartermaster to get the quest and complete it. No autobestowing or autocompletions.
    4. The new RTs appear to follow the same spawn pattern as the RTs in Central Gondor. Each zone has a number of established spawn areas. At the start of each day, each RT is assigned a particular spawn area for the day. It "paces" in that small area, but doesn't go far. When killed, it respawns in that same area (on Bullroarer, the respawn is currently about 5 mins). Once you know the location for a RT for the day, it will always be there.
    5. Central Gondor RTs are listed by reputation level. Tier 1 requires acquaintance; Tier 2 requires friend; Tier 3 requires ally.
    6. Other RTs do not appear gated by reputation. Instead, I indicate how many Brands you get for completing the quest. The small fellowship RTs give 1 Brand, larger fellowship RTs give 3 Brands.

    very helpful thanks

    Thanks. Updated with above, and added South High Pass as well.

    It appears that these locations are intended to be somewhat off the beaten path, so that an on-level player can do everything in the zone while easily avoiding being flattened.

    Any indication as to what the brands will be used to barter for?

    Yes. Pittcrew1 has a thread going on the BR server with regard to feedback on the Brand rewards. I haven't mentioned them here because I figured the rewards were more likely to change when the update goes Live.


    From that thread:

    You can trade the Brands in where you get the quests from for all but Central Gondor. In Central Gondor, they are usually located near the Rep Barterers.
    •3 teal 2-socket pocket items, with each class type's primary stat, along with vitality. Each costs 200 Gift Giver's Brands.
    •7 Tapestries for Housing (large wall). Each costs 50 Gift Giver's Brands.
    •The "Pond Frog" cosmetic pet. It costs 30 Gift Giver's Brands.
    •New FA weapon LI's. Each costs 200 Gift Giver's Brands. [note: these are bind on acquire, and have a different cosmetic than current FA LI weapons, but are otherwise identical]
    *There does not seem to be any deed-completion gating any of these rewards.

    All the ones I've seen are level 100, as well as their adds (one has a wolf pack, and the mammoth has a rider that jumps down mid fight).

    I just found Amardam in Angmar at 0.8N, 27.4W.
    Looks like you get the quest to kill him after you have done the other 5 first.
    Makes me wonder if we get that in all areas.

    Added 5 new confirmed locations in West Gondor.

    We have begun updating the Wiki with information on Roving Threats, much of it based on your postings.
    The Wiki has added the information on the Roving Threat Quartermasters and their rewards -- at least as everything is currently on Bullroarer in 15.2.3 (build 3).
    As with this thread, it is a work in progress.

    Assuming that this new tech is being constructed to avoid the obviously easy "farming setups" --

    Some Questions:

    1- Are all Quests "Dailies" ?
    2- Do RT defeats drop brands more than once per day?
    3- Do RT defeats drop "boxes of spoils" like Warbands?

    4- And this is the biggie we can't answer yet... but you can see the runes in the stone

    * Will there be Deeds and Meta Deeds and wrapper quests yet to be "revealed" associated with the RT "experience" ? (At least in Build 3, these are non-existant, but hinted at.)
    -- much like that of the "Mysterious Relics" of the "In their Absence" structure used to introduce Update 2 "Echos of the Dead."
    The dialog from Cánnakh in Angmar implies that these are all associated with "The Rift."
    (And we all know the story of the The Rift of Nûrz Ghâshu -- right?) https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/The_Rift_of_Nûrz_Ghâshu
    The Lore from that area has barely been touched, especially by contemporary players who simply blow-past it enroute to the Level Cap. (It was the end-game back when the Level Cap was 50!)
    All in preparation for Update 16 and the move of the story line "up-river?"

    Hmm... And, just for good measure: in the quest: the Fall of Thaurlach, Gandalf states: "Gandalf says, "Two others of my Order, who have since vanished into the East, aided her in imprisoning the Balrog."

    Easy question. Are these mounted-combat fights, or on-foot ones?
    'A cage,' she said. 'To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire.'

    Gondor has Mounted Combat enabled, so those can be done mounted, the eriador ones are on foot as MC isn't enabled there.

    Good questions:

    1. They appear to be, just like the Central Gondor quests. Someone mentioned above the possibility of a follow-up RT daily quest that you can get after completing the known ones, but I don't have personal knowledge of that.

    2. I have gotten Brands on the first kill (to complete the quest), but not all such kills. That was an earlier build on BR.

    3. I have been present for about 12 RT kills in various zones. None dropped a box of spoils, but I would love to see those added.

  17. #17
    Follow up.

    Just killed Haldelona in DA, first time in several days. Completed the quest, 5 hour cool down til I get it again, so yes, they are daily.

    Did not get any Brand to drop, so there is no mechanism for a Brand to drop on a mob for your first kill for the day, or on a kill that completes a quest. I have gotten random Brand drops on the first kill that completes a quest, so my working theory is that Brands are random loot drops.

    No box of spoils. I don't think anyone has seen those.
