    Q10: Will Helm’s Deep also feature traditional boss progression style group content?

    No. Helm’s Deep instance content is being represented fully with the Big Battles system.

    What will be the point cost of the expansion and will it be available for points at launch?

    Yep no multi-boss blah blah with this expansion/with HD.

    There are two things it can mean.

    Hint: One of those things it can mean, is that we still might get an instance cluster DURING the lifetime of HD, that just "isn't part of Helm's Deep" so that we all have to purchase it with cash - which would be fine, I'd pay double my sub for a cluster like In Their Absence again.

    Anyhow, they have already stated that Epic/Big Battles are just 'right' for what's happening at HD, such that a normal cluster of 3 - 12 man instances wouldn't convey it right. So, for these fights and other similar large events, we get Battles - for other content in the future, we will get instance clusters.

    Surely, the question "Will there be an instance cluster/multi-wing raid during HD" (so, ANY TIME before the next expansion that replaces HD) has not been answered just by saying "Not with HD".

    Will we see a barber revamp(new hair and facial hair) with HD?
    If so, will it be for all races, and will they be free, or available via purchase from the lotro store?

    Are there going to be solo quests designed to be challenging, like Death from Below?

    Are there going to be any landscape group quests? 3 or 6 man? I assume 12 is out of the question...

    Are there going to be new class quests?

    Will Seals be converted to Medallions with HD?

    How will our performance be rewarded in Epic Battles (Seals, new barter tokens, or loot rewards)?

    Will Skirmish Soldiers be used in Epic Battles?

    If Big Battles are like skirmishes and designed for everyone, can the raiding community expect a traditional multi-boss raid as a later part of the HD expansion/new land mass next year?

    Will there be an additional charge ($$ or TP) for the raid cluster to support its development?

    Will Big Battles be considered a part of the quest pack or will they be treated as instances and raids have been treated in the past, and be required to be purchased separately or via the full expansion?

    Might have the wrong instance there... a Mini's little used 'Beneath Notice' skill on some goblin bell-ringers or something. You're only allowed to kill one of them, and there's one that you have no choice in killing. The other two need to be kept alive, and not see the playergroup, or they'll alert all the mobs nearby, then join the fight. They die easily too.

    They also said, that there are no raids they're planning on or working on at the moment. So propably there could be a raid in late spring / during the summer at the earliest...

    Given the turn around time for raid-development, Summer is far too early. Think Oct-December 2014. Big-battles are what you've got for this expansion.

    The class diaries suggest the benefits from stances are now to be tied to trait Iines. can you confirm this and give an example from hunter? for example is focus gain per 5 sec from precision now tied to huntsman and near bottom of tree or top or midway?

    Will the massive server lag be addressed and fixed by or within the launch of Helms Deep? Especially in PvMP.

    Will there be ever any work done to revamp rewards + sets from past regions to reflect both changes on main stats for each class and now the changes from traits to skill trees?
    (Anyone remembering heavy armor with +Will and other useless stats - or similar items?)

    Looking from a creeps perspective and a player that is now 90% only playing creep - my questions are

    1. What, if any, will HD give towards the creeps players?
    2. What will be the changes towards all creep players in regards the corruptions, Race and Class traits?
    3. Will creeps finally get the simple yet wanted shared vault
    4. Will you, Turbine, wait until Freeps have got the good gear, maxed Audacity(boundto have upped that), new LI weapons to max, etc etc.... before you look at nurfing the creeps back like, just as you did in the previous expansion but done it prior to the maxxing of freeps. Thus we have the way the Moors is now.
    5. Will, HD mean more landscape changes in the Moors?
    6. Will you be removing the 'Auto-flip' keep as that is killing the action in the Moors?


    No matter what freeps get in PvE, it always always affects PvMP in the Moors and creeps loose out in the end. We are the forgotten player in this game yet we pay just like the others. Remember the creeps too.......

    I heard you guys would possibly update the System Requirements of LotRO. If you are, what are the new requirements?

    I know there's no multiboss raid content with HD. But maybe the more people that ask this question, they'll finally get the hint that there's still a significant portion of players that enjoy real raid content and consider us in their development process.

    Any more session plays coming our way? No, I'm not talking about Ent Play (Nudge nudge wink wink Frodo and Sam)
    I hope none of my friends see this post. There could be an orcward conversation... Haha... Ha.

    That was a terrible pun. I'm Gladriel got over it.

    Question travel rations?

    Can't seem to find any travel rations in HD. Have they been done away with? Does this mean that hunter's don't need them when they port?

    You do realize you just broke the NDA prepared to be banned.

    HD Question: Is it really that hard to not break NDA? It seems everyone is doing it.

    Are you implementing a "Skip"-Button for loooong "talk inis" in story (quests/epic) in which you only have to sit in front of your computer and do nothing but read what npcs are telling?

    Any revamped older zones coming in the near future?
