Ithilien ranger hideouts are a type of structure added in Public Beta 22. They only spawn in Ithilien and are located underground. It is not recommended that evil players attempt to attack these structures as they are full of rangers and they will be more than happy to make a human pincushion out of you.
As its name would suggest, the Ithilien ranger hideout is very discreet and difficult for the player to find. The only sign of the hideout from the exterior will be a hole in the ground, often located next to an oak tree, or a corner of the roof peaking out of a hill. When you listen closely, perhaps you'll hear the rangers walking around underground and locate the hideout this way.
If the player examines it, they will discover a ladder leading underground to a medium sized chamber.
Since this is a hideout and not a residential home, the living conditions here are tolerable but far from luxurious. Four straw beds are provided for those needing rest. There is also a vanilla crafting table, a Gondorian crafting table, and a furnace.
One side of the room is a self-serve ale station. Four barrels of varying amounts and potency of ale can be found here. There is also a small casket containing empty mugs, or if the player is lucky, more ale!
The Rangers within this hideout, including the captain, will gradually respawn over time if the rangers are slain or displaced.
