Why not add new content midgame? A6: LS- We're working on improving mid=level content such as the moria revamp. Q7:Lathius-Are we going to scale Rift/CD anytime in the near future? #LOTRO #DEVCHAT A7: JWB -They're on the list.

All games. Look for Entry level positions and work HARD. Q10b: Or learn to code and how to work well with others. ) Q11: Econn-When will we see some work done for housing? #LOTRO #DEVCHAT A11: MZ-Hoo-ee…need to set the stage by getting neighborhoods consolidated with less vacant housing first. #LOTRO #DEVCHAT A11:Working out the details of that stuff now.All I can say is that we have a lot of devs interested in doing some serious home Q12:@rwfrk In a recent interview with Lotro Reporter you acknoweledged video of a landmass. Can you tell us about region timeable? U10? Q12: LS- The next region is in the update after part II of the instance cluster. #LOTRO #DEVCHAT Q13: @dillwillson is there any way you can delete hunters so we dont have to hear them cry anymore?

Q18:Sorig09-Will there be mounted combat instances in the future? A18: JWB-There's a lot of design and work going on internally to figure out how to meld MC and instance gameplay in a satisfying way. Q19: @arch07js Plans to expand Hytbold type of non-killkillkill questing to additional areas of the game? #LOTRO #DEVCHAT A19: JWB - Variety is the spice of life! Yes. #LOTRO #DEVCHAT Q20: @scorp_71 Instance Finder was a perfect idea but never adopted by players.Do you plan to review it for Help solo players to group. A20: JWB- We're looking into it. #LOTRO #DEVCHAT Q21: @DaveFortin are there plans to allow mounted combat in future regions? #LOTRO #DEVCHAT A21: LS- Yes. We already have MC content in development. It's in the next region. Q22: @RannaDylin @Floradine_S: What are your plans to protect RPers from forced emotes? A22: MZ- Plans? We're done with plans.We're testing a solution right now. A22b MF - In the meantime we're also putting in "serious business' locales, where those emotes won't work. Q23: @Drewoid13 Are there any plans to revamp questing in the 40s? A23: LS- Now that Moria is finished, we have our eye on lower levels, but no solid plans. Q24: @Icekiro_RK Hey, My house is really cold. Anyway to use some dragon fire to heat it up?!? A24: JWB - Draigoch drops an animated fireplace. Q25: WhitewolfUK-What were your thoughts on releasing the Rohan cluster into two separate releases. #LOTRO #DEVCHAT A25: MZ - This balanced approach allows us to focus more on individual spaces. Speed is often the enemy of quality… #LOTRO #DEVCHAT A25b:Cramming them all into one release can seriously bring the overall quality level down. #LOTRO #DEVCHAT A25c:It also allows us to work on more long-term improvements that need to simmer at the same time. #LOTRO #DEVCHAT A25d: JWB-It was a very hard decision.We'd prefer to release it as a whole.But it's more important to have quality gameplay. #LOTRO That wraps it up! Thanks for all the great questions! Hope we answered some of your top ones! #LOTRO
