I just left the start region and reached level 8 when I decided to travel east towards Rivendell. A first break was in Bree.
I crossed the lone lands and saw Weathertop.
It became obvious, that all the enemies on my way are much stronger. Nevertheless, I crossed the last bridge alive.
Look at the morale bar, there is not much left. So don’t expect me to get to Rivendell. Unfortunately, I don’t have a screenshot of the troll sending me with a single hit back to where I belong.
