That's what I had in mind about goblin scouts (ranged/melee spear on wargs) like those on ''Two Towers'' moovie on the way to Helm's deep..
Congratz mate :)
My only feedback is to push that kinship revamp into priority list its really getting old and tired. It really hurts kins that they need to rely on external resouces for raid plan, events and such.
Oh an housing upgrade.
Oh and ban the clubbers.
Oh and....hmmmm.....hmmmmmm.....p robably a million other things other asked for before.
Oh and a gaming laptop for me ;-)
Oh noes i said it again... *runs and hides*
@ Toffe,are you allowed to tell us what exactly you are going to do now? Like,are you just collecting feedback and passing it to some dev or sapience etc? Kinda interested in what you ppl do,but i suppose you cant tell Q.Q
Firstly, congrats on your appointment.
PS I can attribute my low ratings in PvP in Ettenmoors to the lag issues
- Lag, lag and lag again. I started playing this game when Code------- ran it, the servers were in Europe and as I live in Europe my ageing PC did not mind the 50 m/s latency and my AGP graphics card could give me a screen frame rate of around 25 fps. With the relocation of the servers to Boston my ageing PC is labouring under the 150 m/s latency and subsequently the AGP graphics card is only managing 7 fps (maybe 10 fps when server is quiet) apart from making playing in large raids impossible it also means things like riding down hill towards the Last Homely House across the bridge 99 times out of 100 lands you in the river as your horse just not respond quickly enough to the sharp turn. So any chance of some dedicated European servers in Europe?
- Anniversary and Festival rewards should be account bound rather than bind on acquire.
- Less grind.
- You've guessed it, lag is a big issue for me. We can't all go out and by new PC all the time.
I don't believe that we can post here anything that wasn't posted before.
Anyway just to say something, kinships need some changes (http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.p...evamp-Proposal - if 25 % of this was done, I would be happy), at least one more rank, officer mail and some tool to handle alliances perhaps.
Old instances deserve better scaling. I imagine, that the way in which is it done now matches the progression of characters stats till lvl 65, but with the lets say exponencial rise after RoI are players simply too overpowered and even t2 OD looks like a bad joke to me. That ofc has something to do with grind, fun and challenges. And the grind is cause by missing locks. If raids were locked and challenges were still daily, we would have less grind for sure.
I'm personally against barterable FAs, at least as long as it requires only t1 deeds. I'd prefer guaranteed FAs in t2 and challenge loot in erebor raids.
One multi-boss raid would be awesome, especially a good, challenging one, which would worth doing for fun, not only for a loot.
Harder instances should drop better loot than easy ones and I'd removed for example gold loot from t1 OD.
What about adding "destroy all" button to pending loot list?
Creating a war-steed outfits from meta-deed or reputation mounts, that you would receive with the mounts?
Some changes in traits and skills are needed, outfits, housing, lags... But again, evrything has been said already.
I wish you good luck!
Why can't we have the stats not be pre-determined? Okay, maybe for the most high tier stuff you may want that assurance that when I use X, (considering the ingredient/time cost) I will surely obtain Y and I have no complaint with keeping that set as it stands, but I think the game would benefit from less formulaic crafting. The worse outcome of a "bad" craft (item grants ill-fitting stats) is that you gain XP...Which is the case currently anyway.
we already have critical succes on crafting. Is your idea to add critical fail to that? or even more different outcome possibilities?
In that last case I dread to think about the amount of required inventory space for crafting.
Also, I feel as if the early Epic Story feels awkward. Specifically around 25. My warden feels as if he's being pulled between both North Downs, and Lone Lands. I get a "Destination" auto-quest telling me to go to ND/Forsaken Inn (LL) after Bree, but the thing is that if I were to head North and quest there, I'm sure to be overleveled by the time I return to LL to continue the Epic Story questline. It feels like i'm being nagged by the game to go sort out something that should actually be super-important, even though the auto-quest suggests I head to Trestlebridge - from where I'm unable to presently follow the ES line.
I'd just like to find out whether this is this how it's intended to be, that though one is given a split path after Bree, in actuality, progress can only be made by heading East, rather than North to Trestlebridge.
Is there any plan for that discrepancy to be resolved, to keep early progression more inline?
Gz sorry I'm a bit late :) maybe some earlier pvp like Warhammer online sort of stuff and the warhorse induced lag needs sorted asap :).
I know there is a revamp coming soon but I'd like to know if there is a possibility if a shared wardrobe slot for the kinhouse.
This would be an ideal place to put a kin uniform so that all the members can have access to it.
Good luck toffe make us proud
1) Better class trait options for creeps, they either must have or total garbage- Weaver Restoration trait
2) Reduce freep classes lag, LM most importantly
3) More complex raids not only lair boss grinds
4) And its really time for new moors class- Ranged/Melee class with bit of CC or support skills: the Goblin/Evil men
This might seem trivial but cosmetic shields and weapons would be nice to see show up eventually. Long ways off, but Mordor would make for a great new PvMP area IMO. Mounted PvMP is a little unfeasible due to lag, but would also be fun.
Creep Class : Angmarin
Revamp map, add more details.. Do it Mirkwood style maybe ?
Revamp OD, Make it for lvl 85 not 75 Add maybe one more wing or just you know make it more "shiny"
Delete RoR expansion (LOL)
Make cap 65 again (LOL)
Overall seriesly revamp old Instances but dont scale them,Add new feautures for 35-60 or so
Some kind of amazing KING crown avatar would be good for recomendation. I know few chars that deserved this crown as elite server pro players.
Those clowns down at turbine need to change some of those horrible UI sounds, the flashing alert pop-up *TUNG* the IM sound *TUNG*.. i mean who in their right mind would approve that? oh.. the same ppl who almost released the game without mounts xD ... lotro is in need of a new company at the helm i hope there license runs out and they get curbed tbh.
seriously, Toffee, i would be greatly indebted to you if you could quitely point this out to the "Team" whilst your in a position to be heard. the *tung sound is so robotic and foreign and horrible iam flawed that no one NO ONE on the development team for 7 years relised how much of a pain in the #### those noises are.. incredible. keep me posted.
iam willing to put a fundraiser together to pay for the man hours needed to make this happen.. it's that bad man
