Nice views abbazabba!

Was able to get out somewhere between Fornost and Evendim today (Frosty Beverages helped), but nothing worthwile, invisible walls everywhere of course.

ScreenShot00011.thumb.jpg.6e2234f4767ffe

Also a small exit in western Evendim, again Frosty Beverages helped. Did i mention invisible walls yet :-/

Also been able to get out in southern shire, Warsteed was necessary, nice view to an unknown river (it seems it's alway nighttime when i'm exploring...)

ScreenShot00005.thumb.jpg.511414e017d9c1

Finally i ran into a maze of invisible walls and got stuck in a perma-movement/rubberbanding, luckily i was able to /stuck out of it after a relog...

Seems this is as close as you can get with war steed, better closer up then from afar (Lone Lands)

Pristine Glades, weird glitching, didn't step on it, for now :)

From Pristine Glades looking to the north, weird mountain, kinda looks like Monument Valley in usa. :)

Few more others:

Behind Gloomglens, left side of picture, you can barely notice small path that is leading to the back of Fishing Hole:

This is where path ends, just at the back of Fishing Hole:

To abbazabba and all the other explorers here, now that servers are closing and we are forced to move, maybe we could unite on a server and go exploring together, what do you think? Or, at least as long as free server switches are allowed (this should start soon and be free to switch from one remaining server to another until the end of the year or so).

I play on Vanyar-DE, which is closing, and i haven't decided yet where i will be going. So if any of you are on an EU server, i may be checking by, if only for a few months, for a bit of hill jumping ;)

 

To contribute something, here are some shots from the dwarven area in Bree. The dwarven wagons spawn, the ride from one side to the other, the despawn.

Found this baddy while crusing around :)

ScreenShot00698_zpsscgarzjh.jpg

@Ibfe sure, can do, get's boring sometimes when jumping alone :) but if you do play on Vanyar now i suppose you won't transfer to EN speaking server, i am playing on those and will likely to transfer either Laurelin/Evernight. But as i did before, can create low level toons on DE servers too.

Just wanted to bring new life into this thread, here are some views from the mountain between Galtrev and Isengard

The road to nowhere is wide open

screenshot00032uldg38sybj.jpg

In the middle of nowhere, far up on the mountain

screenshot00048y2etwb1xsc.jpg

Checking what Saruman is up to

screenshot00058k56dys1ofn.jpg

Also visited the Pristine Glades that abbazabba already posted earlier, that missing floor and "Monument Valley" in the background are well worth seeing

screenshot00069se514280nz.jpg

It's so damn tempting to jump inside, but it really smells like data-nirvana for your char

Happy exploring everyone d;)b

Hi everyone :w

I have been following this thread for a while and now I think it is time for me to post here as well and share some of my experience.

@ibfe77 The mountains above Isengard are also one of my favourite offmap areas.

ScreenShot05752.thumb.jpg.9c1eb0b441608c

If you head north, you can also reach the area in which Storm of Methedras is located. Unfortunately, mounts are not allowed there.

ScreenShot05748.thumb.jpg.3a7ed3786dc87f

I have recently visited Frostbluff and also found some beautiful locations there.

View on Winter-home from above:

High mountain in the south of Frostbluff:

ScreenShot06467.thumb.jpg.c3a1d3621f7183

The far north-west of Frostbluff. You can see something which looks like an ocean in the distance.

The icy high plain between Forochel and Frostbluff:

ScreenShot06560.thumb.jpg.80eaf97f29f568

Unfortunately the mountain passage is blocked by an invisible wall.

Found something funny today while i was mountain hopping in Dunland :)

What is this thing in the distance?

Is it Monument Valley again?

It somehow reminds me of: :D

Got flying bug on my Beorning and later on my defiler, it's mostly luck/RNG but I know a way to get it most times.

Thanks to the help of my friend Jadis i was able to find this real cool place in Moria, in The Old Silvertine City.

You can get behind a building there, and upon further exploring... well, just see the pictures :)

Behind the building

Up the hill, looking down

After jumping down, you can see the plain green plains we explorers love so much to see. As soon as you enter these, the game colors change

Steep walls everywhere, but when getting closer, you can see through them and look down to a strange looking Zelem-Melek

End of the journey, as usual, in a perma-fall, but as always, "stuck" got me out

If you are daring enough, you can go even further than ibfe77 and enter this dangerous region:

The ground is no longer visible, and the landscape becomes very bizarre.

Finally, you will find yourself above Zelem-melek:

On top of the Black Gate, looking into Mordor:
