      Hello all,

      This is a very exciting week for us as we get to expand on our fellowship skills, which we experienced in Retake Weathertop, and fight side by side in one of the most talked about instances in the game: Great Barrows-Thadur.

      Prerequisites: To participate in this week’s activity it is advised that players should be level 20+. While the assignment only requires us to complete Thadur, if you want to do Sambrog you need to unlock it by also completing The Maze.

      We’ve had so much fun yesterday with Thadur, the Maze and Sambrog! And it was a first-timer for my bear Caylinn in a fellowship and on a GB run. :-) The quality of the pics is not great since I had to crop them from a bigger image with lots of barrow and very tiny us, but here they are anyway.
