These are the mordor patch changes for patch 1.05 from the EA forums however written by Predator not Apoc:
APOC had a plan in place to release the Mordor change-list today, so here you go. I have posted it below. Before you get there though, here is a brief update on the patch. Localization efforts took longer than expected, and apologies, but this is one massive patch from what I understand. It's no surprise that it took a while to ensure all language versions were correct.
I know APOC was intent on seeing this patch delivered in mid- August, but technical delays were out of his control. Sometimes a Community Manager needs to make a judgement call, and sometimes luck doesn't wind up in his favor. Tough to please two crowds )
The patch is being submitted to the final testing phase which generally takes up to two weeks to complete and put live. Now, I will keep you up to date and the stars look aligned to keep this patch on track.

|It's the Mordor equivalent of a fortress tower. Since Mordor doesn't get walls, their fortress has stronger defenses. |
Mordor also gets Barricades as a level 10 ring power.
The patch is really taking an interesting twist, looking foward to seeing how it turns out
