Now that the NDA has been lifted, I can post this look at the new quests that will be coming in Isengard (don’t worry, not spoilers!).

I think the main thing I was disappointed in was the lack of instances below raid size. I am like many others in that I am casual and often don’t have time to raid. That doesn’t mean I don’t have 2 hours at a time, I often do. It means I don’t have a set time to play like others in my kin, so getting 24 people together is not really possible sometimes.
