What’s Left After Mordor? – LOTRO’s Potential Future

Aug 8, 2017

I have been getting and seeing a lot of comments regarding LOTRO’s future recently.  Mainly things like “LOTRO is over because Sauron was destroyed.” I decided to make a video to address these concerns and explain what is potentially left after Mordor. Watch more of Andang’s videos...

Crafting Developer Diary – What it should have been

Crafting Developer Diary – What it should have been

Jul 19, 2017

This article is satirical in nature and does not represent the official developer diary allowed by the SSG… Sadly.  The facts about crafting are accurate.   Hello, everybody, I am UnfriendlyCat and I am the developer for the crafting in Mordor that is coming out with the update 21, our most recent expansion, and I would like to share with you a thing...

What’s behind Mordoor 5 – Just think happy thoughts

What’s behind Mordoor 5 – Just think happy thoughts

Jul 15, 2017

Well, that happened. Number 5 was meant to be a happy article looking back on the new rating difficulty with Beta 3 sloping the leveling to be a more accessible, but still equally hard at 105. And the dev post that the Beta 3 best armour wont be the best armour at launch (we’ll be having about 20-30% less stats to work with). Or it would focus on what the...

What awaits us in Mordor?

What awaits us in Mordor?

Jun 25, 2017

If you were to describe Mordor by comparing it to any old area of Middle-Earth, it wouldn’t do it justice. The area is huge, you can find these evil-looking statues all around and sometimes it’s a little bit of a maze. So, the best way to compare it would be to say that it’s a combination of Rohan and Angmar, but on a much larger scale. And...

What’s behind Mordoor 3 – Sorry we’re not home

What’s behind Mordoor 3 – Sorry we’re not home

Jun 25, 2017

We came, we saw and we started to slowly conquer Mordor. The gates have been opened and pineleafs were spotted as with a gazillion orcs and weird cows. But when we looked for some things there was an under construction sign. Sauron wasn’t home anymore. What else wasn’t there yet? Based on bullroarer U21 beta #1 and the preview stream by Cordovan we...

What’s behind Mordoor number 2 – Rating system update

Jun 21, 2017

Stop hitting yourself! No worries i’ve my mits capped.  Only for tier 1 ratings though. Now it’s time for some serious talk, cause this change in the Mordor update is what could impact you’re gameplay the most (hopefully). What does “Rating” do?

LOTRO Update 20: The Wastes is coming

Mar 4, 2017

  So, the long awaited U20 is on BR and… Well, I’d say that some have expected more, but let’s see what is going on. The preliminary release notes you can read here.

Thinking out loud or How moral is this morale

Thinking out loud  or How moral is this morale

Jan 17, 2017

The new essence grind is certainly a topic and a part of this game that gets everyone’s blood running and not in a good way. There’s usually some harsh verbs involved when speaking of those. Since the flowers hit the game I’ve been thinking, to myself mostly, what do these updates give us? Armour upgrade was barely noticeable, 9 main stat, some armour (which...
