Year 3 is upon us. We have more memories to collect and more places to revisit. Grab your favorite hunter and journey swiftly across Middle-Earth. Or don’t. It’s perfectly fine if you want to wait till all 10 years are released and do them all together. In fact, it’s probably more efficient that way. Either way, here’s your guide to year 3.
This article is part of a series on the Anniversary scavenger hunt. Find out more here.

Year 3 Trifles: This Time with Feeling 1 (Recommended level: 75)
You’ll have to access these instances through the Instance Join panel (no hunters needed!) and you can set the level on some of these so you might be able to solo them. If not, grab some buddies and lessen the load on the server! For two of these instance, you must discover the instance entrance before you can jump in.
For Sâri-surma in Forochel take the boat west of Sûri-kylä (19.5N, 73.8W).
For the Foundry in Dunland, travel to the Ox-clan Encampment in Nan Curunir (79.9S, 0.4E). The quest “Hope for the Hopeless” from Mabon near the auction hall in Galtrev will transport you directly there. If you’ve done that quest already, there should be a swift travel horse near the Galtrev stables.
