Moria (LotRO Quest Series)

Moria is so huge and has so many quests that we cannot contain the entire Quest Series on a single page without running into a hard limitation of our wiki compiler. Therefore, we have chosen to base the breakup of the zone by the Quest Log category. This division is not absolute, as some quests start in one section and take you to another. Some are listed in the Quest Log based on where they start, some on where they lead, and some by no logical reasoning we can deconstruct. So, we are going to keep sub-zone quests together, as best we can, based on where it starts.
  • Moria - General information
  • Moria Upper Levels - The Great Delving (Durin's Threshold), Durin's Way (Jazârgund), The Twenty-first Hall
  • Moria Central Halls - The Great Delving (The Dolven-view), Durin's Way (Chamber of the Crossroads), Silvertine Lodes, Zelem-Melek
  • Moria Lower Deeps - The Water-Works, Redhorn Lodes, Nud-Melek, The Flaming Deeps, Foundations of Stone, Zirakzigil
