That bottom character is most definitely not an improvement. Was going to log in tonight and check it out, not looking forward to seeing what my characters are going to look like now

Ok, well this was my plan, unfortunately no game in the history of crappy MMOs updates slower than Lotro.

At least they have a single fan out there willing to make a quick video in celebra- wait, is that supposed to be SSG's official attempt at an expansion trailer?! Sweet Jesus, how are there people stil

To be entirely fair, they did manage to get every remaining LotRO player together to make that video. That's quite a feat, considering the ever-looming threat of lag from having all three players in o

I've seen a dozen threads saying they don't. But I knew before you even posted that you'd adore them, because that's what you do.  You take the contrary stance to EVERY single criticism against y

With the help of the barber, while using the old avatars, I have been able to make changes that make them somewhat acceptable to me.

What p****d me off even more was that unique armor pieces from my level 88 hunter were sitting in my bags, because SSG has suddenly decided that it can't be worn past level 85.

My tailor's crafting options are:

- make level 80 medium armor

or

- make level 85 guild armor

 

There are no level appropriate landscape drops in the AH at the moment.

 

Both crafting options have significant draw backs: in 2 levels the hunter can wear level 90 armor (... but the critted version will not be teal but the level below teal). The level 85 guild armor will take 6 weeks to make because of the cool down on large guild symbols. People have asked multiple times to have this cool down removed, but SSG doesn't do it.

It's really sad to see how SSG restricts us in all kinds of ways to play the game how we are used to. It is also sad to see that these restrictions are in place to push us to the essence armor and its grind and to prevent players from benefiting from earlier earned bonus armor pieces/sets.

The epic takes about 10 minutes to complete.  The only reward is a model of mt doom.  They needed to make way for the "Black book of Mordor" which requires the expac to access.  The other cash grab is those gorgoroth steelbound lootboxes that require a special "black key" to even open.  I was told they don't drop from landscape and the only way to get them is in the store.

Well, there's also that emote that puts the glowing ring above your head, but I can understand why you'd forget that.

Oh yeah that one.  Thanks for reminding me.

Someone got PAID to produce that trailer.  Let that sink in.  Money that could have been spent on, oh I don't know, paying another QA tester?  Or maybe even paying Amorey and Hurin a little extra to shill a little harder for them on social media....

Sorry to barge into another thread.  But I'm honestly beginning to think you have me confused with someone else.  I posted several times in the trailer thread that the trailer was terrible (I was just polite about it), and I've recently been disagreeing/arguing with the other person you mention above (we very seldom agree).

I now note that more than a couple times you've gone out of your way to mention me as some reflexively pro-SSG shill.  Would you care to give an example that others wouldn't just see as me being politely critical or (*gasp*) fair. .  perhaps at the worst playing devil's advocate?

Or, when they do something very, very right (like the housing hooks revamp, or the difficulty increase in Mordor), it is seen as some betrayal of the cause to say "well done?"  Pointing out something good apparently obviates hundreds and hundreds of (albeit, cordial/polite) critical posts across a wide swath of topics?  If you say so. . .

Looks to me like it might have been intended to make character rendering a bit cheaper.

Wondering how LOD develops as distance increases. I bet you see a lot more similarity at some distance now.

They might have been scared by mass player events. Is Weathertop still happening in LOTRO these days?
