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.

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...

1,000+ Petition Turbine For Russian Localization

There is currently a petition on Change.org to get Turbine to offer LOTRO in Russian again. “Hello. Start a Petition requesting an online game Russification “The Lord of the Rings Online”.

No Level Cap Increases Planned for 2015

Vyvyanne, LOTRO’s new Executive Producer, has been very active on the forums today with six posts already. In one of the posts, she informs the community that there is no planned level increase for this year. “Level Cap increases: Not in the cards for this year” While this is understandable with a lot of things already planned for the next...

A Yuletide and New Year’s Wish for Lotro

Happy Yule and soon to be New Year to all! As this year comes to a close, and we look forward to what the new year will bring, I wanted to take a small break from the festivities and reflect on this past year.  It certainly has been a remarkable one! This past year saw a significant departure from our path in years prior, with class changes and a switch from...

Players are petitioning to have Chance Thomas return to LOTRO as the composer for more music.  In less than 24 hours the petition already has over 30 supporters.  That in itself isn’t very surprising though as players seem to really enjoy the music.  What is surprising is that...

On Par with Radiance? What Has the Pursuit of Group Content Cost Us?

Greetings, everyone! 🙂 From its very beginning, the path to Mordor was fraught with peril for those of the Fellowship of the Ring.  Likewise, the path toward Mordor taken by Turbine also has its risks and perils.  How much development to put toward one aspect of gameplay over another cannot be an easy decision to make! There have always been some who have...

8 Changes Epic Battles Need

Epic battles seem to be a dividing topic in the LOTRO community as they stand.  Some players love them, some players hate them and other players tried the battles and don’t care for them.  I find myself somewhere in the middle.  Epic battles in groups are enjoyable but I think they need a lot of work to come close to other end-game content.  I decided to...
