    They call it Draigoch the Red, I call it Draigoch the Dud

    What the hell,,,We're puggin' away at Draigoch and, on phase 3 and get him down to about 1.4 mil and he goes to sleep on us. Obviously this has happened to many of us before but they said they've fixed it and well,,,THEY HAVEN'T!!!!

    This is ridiculous. 4am here,,,and we're doing a great job and BAM,,,,we got screwed... What do I pay my monthly fees for??? To run a raid to near the end and then get glitched.

    So we all put in a ticket and guess how many responses we got after standing around for over half an hour waiting??? ABSOLUTELY NONE...I know it isn't 4am where you are GMs,,,so what are ya gonna do??? Probably tell us there's nothing wrong with this instance,,, or tell us to go and tell someone who cares.

    Well it's broke,,,look,,we're all just standing here with this useless cartoon.

    Not impressed Turbine/WB.

    FIX IT

    Was on the same run.

    Damn straight. Too busy working on Riders of Rohan to actually sort out Rise of Isengard. Very poor effort, not impressed.

    Countdown to this whole thread being deleted because it shows turbine/wb in an unfavourable light starts..... NOW.

    This has happened to us on several occasions. GMs can't do anything about it. Even if they would have responded, their response would have been something along the lines of "we're sorry, but we cannot fix this issue. please wait until the raid is working or fixed at a later date to avoid these types of glitches".

    Sucks to have to restart everything. I know how you feel.

    Yeah, I feel for you guys, too... this isn't the way to keep people from quitting lotro and going to swtor or the myriad of other games available... lol. Diablo III! Arrive faster!

    Yeah its bugged several times before for me and got the same old copy paste message from them, just asked everyone in raid to send a ticket anyways.
    Definitely not pre-ordering when the new expansion arrives, as I will imagine it being in the same state as RoI currently and just a headache.

    Angry that awkward moment when....



    thats like what, another extra 10 seconds of dps?...
    we have been dpsing around 1million morale per drop and for some reason we came up short that time burning only about 900k... -.-
    and they tell us that they are 'unable' to reset the instance/boss unlike the other instance. Anyone know if orthanc or other end game instances bugged to a point where they reset the boss?...

    I don't think they care it's broken.

    My favorite part of this was Agtug in glff in Zub's screenshot.

    There's a lot of #### they need to fix right now. At this point it wouldn't surprise me if the some of the pre-release testers they use are chimpanzees. And the people in charge of fixing these bugs must be something like roaches...they don't do much, but they'll never leave, and while they're there they just keep other, more productive species away.

    Go here http://unity3d.com/ and get the student version. Then load up one of sample projects. See just how complicated game development is. Then imagine how vastly more complicated the Draigoch instance must be. Then maybe you could cut the dev's some slack.

    Condescending tone totally unneeded.

    Do you think that its OK for PROFESSIONAL GAME DEVELOPERS (note the word PROFESSIONAL) who we pay great sums of money to each month (in addition to paying directly for this lot of content) to release a very buggy instance, then not fix it for 5 months but in fact make it worse?

    To then begin promoting the next expansion whilst the last one is still buggy as hell is to me totally unacceptable. If you don't agree, Do you at least understand my reasoning Ace?

    Indeed. I refuse to pre-order the next expansion until they can atleast fix the old content- because chances are, the new content will have some annoying bug that we will be complaining about in the near future.

    No excuse to sell a product that doesn't work. 1250 Tp and four hours later... I would be raging so hard if this happened to me

    WOW, so the whole draigoch fiasco is actually a big lore based internal joke at turbine? :P

    It's better they do what they are doing rather than taking the raid offline for several months like they did with the turtle. If you minimize things that cause it to bug out you can get the bug out rate to less than 1/4 of the time. For people that can't do the Isen 12 man, this is an important raid. Nobody has to do the raid and everyone should be aware of the risk.

    It does irk me that they spend so much resources on stuff that is not broken (class redesigns, level cap increase, making the Isen instances harder) while broken stuff goes a long time without being fixed (like the Annuminas flag reset which was broken for a year, preventing a deed from being completed). This just makes no sense.

    On the other hand, at least they fixed most of the problems with deed completion in Dunland, and they have reduced the bug rate on Draigoch.

    I'm usually all for 'cutting the devs some slack' but I have to agree with you at this point. Why are they working so diligently on a new xpac when the current content isn't working right? They should put RoR on hold and fix the current bugs first. At the very least they need to disable it until it is fixed. Unfortunately, even if they did that I doubt it will get fixed anytime soon. They'll just leave it sitting while they play in Rohan. They've really gone downhill since WB stepped in.
