How to get to the Dead Marshes

If you’ve ever glanced at world chat and seen a listless newb asking how to get to the Dead Marshes, you’ve probably brushed them off because it’s just so darn complicated to explain.

How to get from Bree to Minas Tirith at any level

I made a video! Specifically a video detailing an oft-cited shortcut from Bree-land to Minas Tirith which will make your lowbie scavenger hunting slightly less annoying. All you need to do is

  1. Visit the Cape of Belfalas Housing Broker near the boar fountain of Bree.
  2. “Tour” a house at 5 Cape Road (or any house on Cape Road).
  3. Exit the neighborhood to the east.
  4. Take the swift horse to Minas Tirith.

Also included is a helpful hint about getting to Dol Amroth using the same procedure but instead of Cape Road, visit a home on Cypress Road and exit the neighborhood to the west. Happy trails!
