LOTRO expands - Glorfindel joins ranks of Middle Earth characters

Turbine just have announced that they added a new character to their Codex, the great Glorfindel.

Here is what the article says:

The Elf-lord Glorfindel is one of the most powerful of all the Eldar of Middle-earth, counted great among the Wise. He remembers well the elder days of the world, and bears the great power and knowledge of ages past. His wrath can bring terror even to the Nazgûl of Sauron.
