  1. Makes one wonder whether players approaching 120 may just buy this Valar for the weapons.
  2. This cost 4995 LP back then. Someone on the OF did the math and figured it would cost 52,000 LP to max 2 weapons. This Catch-up Box would be a drop in a bucket. No, I expected max weapons - and I already wrote earlier in this thread that, seeing the expense, this will not happen. SSG will want to mask the costs by offering upgrades in bits and pieces, for mithril and with offers such as just linked. What I have found with SSG is that they started out with better offers (example: tripple bonus LP) and then don't have that return to the store. I think it's the same with th
  3. What keeps coming up in the Forum threads is that the grind may be very daunting for new players. When it's daunting a trip to the store may be more easily made. https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?685689-The-new-Imbued-LI-grind-plan/page4 It doesn't matter to SSG/DayBreak/Whoever that a player spending tons of cash doesn't know how to play the (end)game. Only thing that matters to them is that you spend muchos $$ in the store. This is an interesting question: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?685657-What-is-the-total-cost-to-level-a-Legenda
  4. Despite, by now age old and repeated, promises of SSG and its precessor that the legendary grind is under consideration, SSG, in its infinite wisdom, has decided to make the legendary grind even worse: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?685661-I-don-t-know-about-the-new-scroll-of-empowerment-grind I therefore expect that SSG will announce in the near future that it will start selling expensive endgame weapons in the store. Some players will be very relieved to be able to bypass the excessive grind. Others will be maintain that 'the grind is doable'.
  5. And it's over!! Lockdown here, so no Boxing Day crowds. Moving on to the New Year!
  6. Turbine/SSG has always benefited from being purposefully vague, esp. because it led the defenders to preach about 'protecting the existence of the game'. Example: 'I bought the most expensive expansion because the company needs money'. Cognitive dissonance. They really used the division they created within the player base to their advantage. Many never understood that Marketing wasn't making 'dumb choices' but (experimenting with) profitable ones. I wonder how often people behind Turbine/SSG have laughed their asses off over the years. There is a distinct difference between maki
  7. Going from a male dwarf to a female elf with a name change.... 7500 LP..... Imagine regretting this after a day or two. Makes me wonder. If you go from female elf to dwarf, is there no gender change because there are no female dwarves? Not going to try that out lol. I have been subscribing to Runescape for a few years now, with the yearly package. Costs me $6.60/month. I have 99+/all skills (which was super easy to finalize with all those boosts/double xp weekends etc.), and can't be bothered with going for 120's. So only log in to do some dailies and some (no
  8. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
  9. ..... SSG was already owned by Daybreak. SSG didn't want to admit it to its playerbase, lest it dampens spending. Daybreak was therefore called 'publisher'. Now Daybreak is sold and Severlin writes the above... no.... you are a piece of carrot in the soup that is called Daybreak which is being eaten by EG7. Face it.
  10. Therefore Mordor was the last thing I bought.
  11. You are not alone. The following is pathetic. VIPs are complaining that this 'mini whatever' should have been included with VIP. What does SSG do? They add a 'War of Three Peaks map table with teleporter' as a (gated behind purchase) VIP quest reward to a vendor. And what do the VIPs do? They are excited and forget they paid at least $20 for something that used to be included in their subscription. https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?&postid=8042654#post8042654 What did Paiz say again?

  13. An example of a 'mission': quest 1: fetch a bucket at X, travel via a,b,c to quest 2: fill said bucket at Y, travel via d,e,f to quest 3: deliver said filled bucket at Z? I hope it's not going to be as bad as that. Also, I don't expect an epic book or so. I wonder what the 'goodies' are at 59/99.
