Lord of the rings online
And so it begins… Developers finally made it, a serious nerf. Almost everyone was against, yet they did not listen. And here we are: Anfalas scrolls are now bound and capped. Scrolls from Dol Amroth have a cap of 44, Minas Tirith and Rangers of Ithilien – 59. After that – there are no reliable source of income. Some weekly quests that award with entire three (!) scrolls – well, compare to daily ones that may award with 4. Basically: your imbued legendary item legacies stop at lvl.59 out of 83. And even if you have all regions – right now it stops at lvl.79. Top-tier ones are only for War of 3 peaks and this is gated. Gated behind (as graciously offered) 100 dollars/euro purchase. To make things worse – reputation acceleration tomes become bound too.
So now we finally have promised change in Legendary items. Everything will become (one site calculated) around 3 times worse. That’s the best calculation for ultra powerfull character that can run 10 Roving Threats a day, do raids etc. For not so “ubersoldat” it is about 10 times worse.
SSG cannot be accused of being wise or having any love to players. They just keep angering players. First, remove Sturdy keys, wellcome black keys. When players got Black keys – oh no, no more in-game acqusition, feel free to buy. When players did not buy – oh well, then new content first for buyers, others may wait almost a year. Now it’s direct invitation: purchase Lotro points for cash, get all you need from Store!
People are angry. Lotro haters are quite happy. Only ones who do not care – are developers. Greedy, heartless creatures that know too little of game mechanic and how players feel. This nerf also makes my wish to support Lotro with at least 1 month of VIP – null and void. Sorry, Greedy Pig Games – you do not deserve support. You do not deserve this game.
On the brighter note: Stormsong finished epic. Running there and here, finally reaching Gundabad. Land was impressive. I expected something half-prepared (as is typicall for SSG). Well, it is not. We have towns that look like towns, we have Dwarves, we have real battlefield – fortifications, trenches, lots of monsters. Speaking on monsters – we have two-headed troll. A direct copy-paste from Warcraft’s ogre – it also had two heads…
Attack on Gundabad went not so bright for Dwarves, since their own infights undermined everything. But since Durin himself tells “The day is won” – it is won then…
And so the day has ended. Last one before Lotro receive really bad nerf.
