  1. I just can't believe these prices, or that anyone would be stupid enough to pay them.
  2. https://www.mmorpg.com/lord-of-the-rings-online/editorials/opinion-lotros-mini-expansion-pricing-feels-tone-deaf-2000119417 Isn't this the site Druidsfire writes for?
  3. I think SSG is in financial trouble. They've been offering too much to VIPs for free for too long, and it's now coming back to bite them. I don't mind paying for content, but the pricing for the packs beyond the basic is ridiculous.
  4. If they have to change out hardware or install security patches, it could very well take a big chunk of time, especially when you consider that each world is hosted on a cluster of servers.
  5. SSG has designated Wednesdays as the regular day to restart all the servers, if there's not a patch or update. Cordovan comment on the forums today that they sometimes use this time to perform any additional hardware maintenance.
  6. Bombadil is the "special events" server - it just hosted the Tournament of the Twins event. What should happen is that an existing character that has not been logged into for more than a year is supposed to be renamed with at ~1 at the end. What is actually happening is that the character being transferred onto the server is always being renamed.
  7. I don't necessarily have a problem with charging for this feature. I do have an issue with the fact that 1) they did not advertise that there would be a cost associated with the feature and 2) at 20 MC (200 LP, or roughly $2.00 USD), the cost is just too high. It should be 1-5 MC at most.
  8. Maintenance on premium houses is waived for VIPs/Lifers.
  9. A deluxe house costs around 400-600 MC or 17-22 writs A deluxe meed hall costs around 900 MC or 36 writs. Writs are 250 LP or 25 MC each. There's only one mead hall per housing neighborhood, and they are in high demand. Oh, and you now have the ability to convert mounts and cosmetic pets to housing decorations. At a cost of 20 MC each...that's a bit steep for a freaking housing decoration.
  10. I suspect Cord will make an excuse to not do his live stream tomorrow.
  11. Cheapest hardware + cheapest data center + cheapest internet provider = disaster in the making.
  12. Technically, you don't have to do the store. There are several in-game sources of empowerment scrolls - chiefly, chasing down roving threats and completing dailies in Minas Tirith. And you can get the crystals from the festivals. Per Lotroplayers, it takes about 42 days to get enough SOE to cap your weapon. They just introduced the embers route recently. You can deconstruct old gear to get embers.
  13. At this point, we're basically chasing down the Gúrzyul, the former disciples of Sauron. This mainly includes Dulgabêth, the Mouth of Sauron; Karazgar the Weeping Warrior; and Urudanî Stonemaiden, previously the mistress of Nargroth and currently a fire-wraith. Karazgar is involved most of the Black Book story in the Three Kingdoms (Felegroth, Dale, and Erebor) and The Dwarf-Holds (Iron Hills and Ered Mithrin). He also appears in the Vales of the Anduin. His story is never adequately completed, before you are whisked away to help Isildur (himself now a wraith) find a final peace in the final c
