I feel it's the opposite. They are removing all existing lore and not adding any new. Just generic fantasty &&&& like ice giants and whatnot. Without lore, why should we play this game? It's sub-par for an MMO, the only attractive part was that it used to be Tolkien lore based. Now it is a sub-par game with no lore.
