  1. Ah, well that's good to know. Minstrel and (healing) captain being my most played characters at the moment, so I'll keep focusing on other things aside finesse, taking it as a welcome but not too necessary bonus.

    If you do want to get some finesse, it is found on crafted gear, world drops, reputation bartered gear and also on jewellery, so getting it should not be an issue. Hunters even have a skill that gives a short finesse buff.

    According to the dev diary you should only need about 3 pieces with finesse to be at max efficiency

    The hope is that a player will be about at their maximum finesse efficiency by wearing roughly 3 pieces on-level with the space

  2. Once finesse is in the game, the amount of it isn't the deciding factor in raids. It's the overall gear, morale and power pools, avoidances and mitigations. For healers, finesse seems to be completely useless. Or does finesse help you beat the mob finesse so they won't hit you so much..? For DPS classes it obviously is an important stat to get those important strikes in. Where does this put agility? A stat for criticals and ability to hit.. but isn't finesse also in a way a stat about being able to hit? Oh well, we'll see how it goes.

    Your finesse does not effect the mobs finesse and vice versa. What it does is lowers the mobs B/P/E and resistances. So unless the mobs has B/P/E of 100% then you can attempt the raid with 0 finesse. Also you can reduce the mobs block and parry to 0 if you attack from behind.

    So so need agility so you dont miss the mob and then finesse would reduce the chance of a B/P/E from the mob


  3. I dont ever remember then saying that finesse would not be sold in the store.

    Given that finesse seems to be easy to get in game via armour, jewellery, RK chisels, class traits why would anyone buy it?

    As long as people buy it Turbine will keep selling it. If people want to stop Turbine selling everything via the store then dont buy it since Turbine are doing it to make money


  4. It has been asked a few times over multiple threads, something that Turbine doesn't like at all. This thread is still open but there has been no answer.

    http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.php?416368-Availability-of-RoI-with-TP

    I think the only remotely close answer so far has been north of what Moria cost which used to be around 2500 TP.


  5. No auto manufacturer would dare to sell you a car with one wheel missing (I'm ignoring Reliant Robins, alright! :P), or one where the steering wheel is likely to come off in your hands at some random moment. OK, in terms of the metaphor, most of the defects in games amount to scratched paintwork, blown bulbs, and that sort of thing. But games companies do this routinely.

    Many car companies have released models with major defects like accelerator pedals sticking and then had to recall thousands of cars. Also in many other industries you see products being recalled to due to faults so it is not just games companies that get products wrong and have to fix them after release.

    The issue most people have with ROI is they expected things to be in the expansion, even if Turbine never said they would be included, that are not there but will be coming a few months later. For me Turbine never said anything about instances as they didnt know if they would be ready in time and rather than say they were coming and then say they are not they choose to say nothing which lead people to speculate.


  6. Just out of curiosity, and only because I stumbled across a link to this topic on another forum, what makes you think GB law applies to companies whose game assets are located entirely in the United States? Keep in mind that Turbine was under no obligation to accept EU players en masse; and, since I am certain you already knew all of this, explain again why GB laws apply.

    From the UK Terms of Service

    Dispute Resolution and Governing Law. The terms set out in this Agreement along with any dispute arising from or related to such terms will be exclusively governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales whose Courts will have exclusive jurisdiction in any dispute, save that Turbine has the right, at Turbine’s sole discretion, to commence and pursue proceedings in alternative jurisdictions.

    It is also in the EULA


  7. One of the replies in the link suggests there are more maps that have not yest been put on Bullroarer

    Gap of Rohan and Isengard+Nan Curunir currently have their own maps in Palantir, but the maps are incomplete (half drawing half dyanmic map look). It will be pushed to Bullroarer on one of the next builds when the proper maps are drawn.

    No idea as to the accuracy of the claim or the original post, but I would wait till more info has come from Turbine before jumping to any conclusions. It is possible that Turbine has not released all the content to Beta just yet and more will come in the next builds


  8. Well, yes and no. I understand that Turbine claims that absolute right under their TOS, but the fact that they charge money for their service means that right is not quite as absolute as they wish to claim. At the very least, they might have to return your money (or a portion of it) if they unjustly break their contract with you.

    It could even be argued that F2P players have entered into a contract with Turbine by the act of downloading and playing the game. I have seen marketing from Turbine that touts the number of players, so even that act alone has some value to Turbine.

    Attempting to enforce non-disclosure on persons who are not parties to the agreement seems like quite a stretch to me. Especially when they may not have any knowledge that such an agreement even exists.

    All that said, I realize that they would probably get away with it. Not many have the time nor the inclination to fight over what would be, in essence, a rather trivial matter in the larger scheme of things.

    Turbine have set forum rules that you mast adhere to if you wish to post there and they have also set out punishments for breaches of the rules. If someone hasn't read the rules or chooses to ignore them then that is their fault. One of the rules relates to posting information that is subject to a NDA

    There would be little Turbine could do if the info was posted on an external site since it would be difficult to find out where the info came from, at best they could get the site to remove the information


  9. This is the quote from Sapience in the same thread that gets me:

    What the heck? How can they possibly make everyone a party to an NDA that they never signed and may never have read nor even heard of in many cases?

    :?

    In the forum community guidelines it states

    20. You may not post, repost, or link to any information covered under a Non-disclosure agreement, including but not limited to spoilers, screen shots, and videos.

    http://www.lotro.com/community/700-communityguidelines

    So if you post this info on Turbine's forum you have breached the guidelines they have set and they can take action against your account.

    If it is posted else where then I dont know what action they could take as it would be hard to identify who posted it especially if they used another user name on a different site


  10. Its not radiance but we will need to wear at least 3 pieces to hit a boss. FFS Turbine

    Glad I havent ordered the expansion yet...

    Why will we need at least 3 pieces? The intent is the you will max the rating with 3, but you should be able to hit it with none but less often or for less damage. The diary clearly says you dont need it.

    Basically it appears that low levels of finesse (finezze) ups the chance our attacks will be blocked, parried, evaded or resisted. However since you can up your hit chance via stats that dont cap, you could avoid using finesse if you want.

    We will just have to wait and see how it works


  11. Here is an excerpt from a worrisome post made by Sapience in the ROI forums (emphasis added by me):

    Is that to say that every single member of that kinship was ( a ) invited to beta and ( b ) broke the NDA? If one of those conditions was not met, the punishment given to the whole is unmerited. I sincerely doubt that the whole of a single kinship received beta invites, and I am sensing some unlawful heavy-handedness.

    Could have been a 1 man kinship
