Orcs! We are besett by orcs on all sides! Grab your swords, bows and axes and venture across Middle-earth (yet again!) to slay the never-ceasing stream of orcs pouring from the depths.

These adventures await you in year 4 of the anniversary scavenger hunt.

Anniversary scavenger hunt guide – year one

Each week a new set of quests unlocks and new rewards to boot. The event is scheduled to last until July 13 at which point the event will likely disappear forever return next year!
