  1. fwiw - I found Mordor and N.Mirk a little harder (not like early SOA) - but I had to pay more attention to pulls or ended up doing a dirtnap (on more than one occasion)
  2. I haven't found the changes that noticeable for myself in all honesty (ymmv) - my blue line seems about the same but my red line hits a lot harder now - perhaps its my build or play style - or lack thereof in both cases 😉 (this after more Mordor and finished off N.Mirkwood) I tend to quest mostly in blue then if tackling harder instances or areas where I know I will draw aggro and need more firepower I switch to red (I suck at kiting ...)
  3. Didn't many of the LOTRO programs from Turbine go to SSG ? And my understanding was that anyone that new anything about the underpinnings of the LOTRO code at Turbine had long ago sailed to the west
  4. My hunter is fine and I am pretty casual with my approach to the game - those blue line hunters need to try a little bit more - sorry that their 3+ year old rotations don't work anymore but they need to get over it - classes change over time and my hunter at 115 is nothing like my hunter at 50, or 65 or whatever Personally it is still my main and I am having a blast with it - ymmv obviously
  5. FWIW - at high levels - my guard (115) is hitting harder than before in red line, hunter (115) hitting about the same from what I was doing on Sunday (farming SoE from gray quests in Minas Tirith and lvl 105 CoS) I know world chat and the forums have a ton of blue hunters crying foul - but they appear to be new players who don't remember the days before the blue line nerf (whichever update that was) to make blue line op (imo). It was fun but still op.
  6. Yeah - I was disappointed by the lack of attention to beornings - but some of the other classes got a much needed lift imo Personally I don't mind the hunter changes (even though its my main) - I look forward to seeing how a red line guard does in Mordor
  7. Release notes: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?664457-Update-22-2-Release-Notes Also new summer festival instances mentioned in the notes (although Summer festival doesn't go live until June 28)
  8. Thanks for these postings ! Very interesting to watch ....

    LOTRO Solo and PVP

    Your right about discussion and I'm not about to defend a lot of stuff that I see as wrong with the game I don't personally spend cash on the game other than expansions (my gaming budget goes to EU4 and CK2 expansions which I never get around to playing) and when possible I use TP to purchase them The population is surprising and it has to be whales funding the game but there are a lot of lifers and f2p people around as well - Arkenstone seems as busy now as it ever was and I even run into people in out of the way areas where I am used to being alone note - I'm not pretending to be this guy (like some): fwiw - IF I was a raider or PVPer I would definitely ditch this game like it was a rotten potato

    Ahhhh - my bad and my apologies - I guess I did mention whining (and true or not - the way the folk on the official forums approach it is whining in my opinion - not discussion)

    LOTRO Solo and PVP

    Everything the posters said is true - BUT - its Middle Earth and despite SSGs best attempts they haven't killed it totally yet - parts are still fun and satisfying for some - ymmv. Lag is horrendous at times (even a few hours after a server restart) - quests were broken with the latest update (since patched - mostly I think) - I don't raid or PVP so can't speak to those but I see a lot of whining about both on the forums (of course its the same 4-6 people whining all the time ..) That said - Mordor and N.Mirkwoods re-introduced some difficulty to PVE that has been gone for a long time (since Moria maybe) - I die regularly on the landscape nowadays with bad hunter pulls, etc. I know Middle Earth is not the "end all - be all" for most but having tried many of the MMOs out there - only three - DAOC, LOTRO and SWTOR have held my interest for more than 30 days -

    Northern Mirkwood

    Any thoughts ? I waited until the first patch so I didn't run into some of the bugs that existed the first week (like the map being off) Haven't quested there yet other than the run to the King Thranduil palace

    Bullroarer Update 22 (Build #1)

    Thanks MP ! Any idea on whether this is going to be a light-gear grind with the current gear we are working on becoming obsolete ?
