    Withywindle Player Council

    Hi Withy!!

    I have been selected to join the Player Council for 2013. I would be interested to know of anything that you would like to bring up in the Council. On speaking to some already I have a few ideas of things to bring up to the council - and I know others on the Council will have their own ideas also from their own Servers

    If you have any ideas that you would like to have heard please either send me a tell/mail ingame or post a reply here.

    I hope I will do Withy proud

    I would like them to make the high level raids actually good, i've seen a few of these new RoR raids and they're just not so satisfying as, for example, OD or ToO.
    And what's with this new scaling system? Doing raids at level 20... nonsense really.
    Then it's not really a raid is it? More like a skirmish.

    And some other things such as:

    - Revamping the housing system (They're already making preparations, or so i've read)
    - Dealing with Clubbers in PvP
    - New music instruments! (I want my Violin!)
    - Better character creation

    Can't think of anything else at the moment. ^^

    FTFY I think fiddle just seems more appropriate as a name. Fili and Kili played fiddles in the hobbit

    (The other instruments played: flutes, drum, clarinets, viols, harp... we do not have viols in game yet, either).

    Fiddle haha!
    But still, it would be nice to have some new instruments, or even better, Legendary instruments for Minstrels.

    1) Housing revamp with possibility to purchase some upgrades from the store. Example: if house has 20 hooks, player can purchase another NN hooks for some Turbine points or ca$h. It could also be possible to sell stuff for real cash giving players more than the would get for TPs.

    2) Festival lags. Bree was over-lagging in the first days of Anniversary. Also, some players asked (complained?) that there were no NPCs to trade tokens with in Angmar. Proposal: make activities at least in main cities (Rivendell, Thorins Hall, Bree). NPCs could be renamed cosmetically (like Rhahool and Rhahaal in another mmorpg...). Or they could be done in some "countryside", like Hobbiton in the Shire. Proposal 2:if festival has token drop, please make NPCs barter them to stuff in eveyr settlement. If new NPCs are problem - use some Provisioners / Town mayors / Town cryers.

    3) Eregion/Moria revamp. So far, Lotro had almost a rule that each level range is covered by at least 2 regions. Bree, Ered Luin and Shire for beginners. North-downs, Lone lands for lvl.20-30s. Evendim, part of Trollshaws for 30s. Angmar, Forochel, Misty Mountains - for 40-50. And then we come at Moria, lvl.50-60 with no alternative. Proposal: take out Morobel region (Emun Naer) in Eregion and make local enemies lvl.53-58. No need to make new names or design - just increase in level. No need to make new deeds for that sub-region. I think it may attract more people to purchase Eregion.

    4) Town cryers. They instantly spam about Dwarven expedition to Moria. Good they are advertising, but - is Moria selling that bad? Proposal: Town Cryers should either change their ads from time to time or advertise stuff Turbine wants to sell better. Example - "Only the braviest of heroes would stand side by side with Middle Earth's elite warrior in decisive battle at Helm's Deep!".

    5) crafting revamp in some future. One-use recipes are not very good (folks report lvl.85 weapons are entirely such). As Weaponsmith, at some level I have no quality weapons for us, Champions. Taking example from another mmorpg - I propose changes.
    Crafter should be able to add some status to weapon within given "borders". Example: crafted weapons can have 3 spaces to add something and each status (+might, fate...) costs some rare resources (like shards, guild emblems, polished stones).
    So, single-use recipes should be gone, replaced by standard ones. Single use may remain as a rare drop, but as add-on to standar. If I have iron sword recipe, I may find some "Dwarven Superior Iron Sword" single-use recipe.
    How this system could work?
    Present system: Elven-steel Greatsword. 66-110 Belerian damage, 35.1 DPS. It has +158,4 ICPR, 79 Maximum morale. Critical success: 72-120 damage, 38,3 DPS, +162 in-Combat Power Regen, +164 Maximum Morale.

    My proposal: starting with standard bonuses. Crafter is able to remove +ICPR and +Morale, replacing them with two (up to Tier 5) bonuses of his/her own taste. Thus, I could craft sword withm, say, +18 Might and +NN Maximum morale. However, adding +18 Might may cost me, for example, 10 Adamant shards, 10 Mithril-infused steel ingots, 50 khazad steel ingots, 20 adamants and 1 tier5 Weaponsmith Guild emblem.

    For the start i would like to know what do you think what needs change, what is good, what new needs to be implemented and which part of this game are you focusing the most? What we know about you is that you are not expirienced in pvp, raiding, class knowledge... what made you candidate for a council at the first place?

    Dont get me wrong, im glad for you that you made it enter the council, but i would like what is in your head and how do you plan to use that spot in council.

    Id like to know when Turbine plans to let us out the moors, would love to get a beer and a snack at the prancing pony?

    I jest, congrats. I hope this Player council is more then cheap PR for Turbine.

    Also will we be hearing from the other Withywindle member of the council?

    So Toffee, did you expect this to be a full time job when you started this post?

    Hi Toffee

    Can you please suggest Turbine to improve on those things:
    1. Kinship functions (priority)
    2. Disconnection issues
    3. Fix the laggy spike while riding in East Rohan
    4. Creates new costumes
    Nothing is Impossible

    1) I'm waiting 6 years for a new haircuts , perhaps it's time to add some new like an example those from NPC of Lothlorien and Rohan.

    2) I'm outfit geek, so again ... some NPC from Rohan, Lothlorien, even Bree, got better looking outfits than we can get right now. It's not big deal to copy them and give for players a chance to wear same stuff.

    3) Elven race should be able play Captain Class. Its silly as Great Captains of Middle-earth were actually Elves. During First Age, Noldor from Gondolin and Nargothrond. During Second Age, Noldor from Lindon, and during Third Age, Noldor from Imladris/Rivendell. As they said this game is mainly based on Tolkien Books not P.Jackson movies, so this is 100% Lore.

    4) Goblin , a new race for creep side . It is about time for that.

    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
