I understand it as the instance will look the same, but the versions for 1/2 on one hand and 12 (for example) on the other are two different (but exactly defined) designs in terms of mobs, challenges, difficulty etc., i.e. not like the skirmishes where everything scales 'automatically' with group size. But the space itself I expect it to look the same.
As we have it now it is impossible to out DPS the DPS classes or even any non-tanking class. Ie someone stacks up 2000 agility as their primary stat and you can't expect someone with a one handed weapon to keep up (tanks will be stacking on vitality instead of might/agility). Since tank classes won't be able to tank that way, and they aren't changing how enemies work, then there has to be more than just some forced taunts.
(On the other hand, the devs think mounted combat is ok as it is even though tank classes traited as tanks can not hold aggro when all other chars can do 10 times the damage output. But in that case I think they intended that non-tank classes can function as mounted combat ranged tanks.)
We're still going to have deeds based on skill repetition, but those and the quests that used to dive traits, now give trait points instead.
If skills are bought in the trait trees (which I'm guessing since we're apparently doing away with skill trainers) there is the possibility that a player might not buy a skill a deed requires, thus never using it and opening any such deeds associated with it. Is this being addressed in some way (auto unlocking deeds by level, marking such skills, or guaranteeing all such skills are in their classes common usage list)?
That's a pretty significant pile of additional trait points. Will it be possible to max out a tree (one of the three for a class) without any of these points (making them available for other trees), or will all these extra points be necessary to do so (or will it not be possible at all?)? If the latter, is some consideration being given for some that are more painful to get (for example I just noticed one I think on my captain that can only be incremented by raising fallen fellows, which is kindo hard if you don't group much)?
Can turbine please clarify that ? Can all medals be earned in all settings or are some restricted to the higher group sizes ?
Nothing here matters.

Sorry if I missed something, but have one weird question.
I'm F2P and as such I am limited to free trait slots. I have purchased some of them and was thinking about purchasing more for Turbine points.
Turbine clearly stated about player's possibility to purchase some "class tree" space for mithril coins.
Question: what would be the situation if free player purchased trait slots? Return TPs? Give more space?
They somewhat answered it in a Twitter Q/A before:
So basically you will not get all the bonuses whatever they are (I guess mainly similar to the trait line bonuses that we have now and some specific skill enhancing bonuses as well).Q5: banjolier: For players who spent TP to unlock trait slots, how will you convert our existing purchases to the new system? #LOTRO
A5: HoarseDev: Your specialization choice gives you access to bonuses as you spend points. #LOTRO
A5a: These are unlocked in the same way as the old slots and those purchases carry over to the new system. #LOTRO
How that will affect the class and its capability we will see.
Currently not having all class trait slots is quite a nerf so I expect it to be similar with the new trees.
I'm going to make an unpopular suggestion...
Q39: Eyeslayer600: I heard you guys would possibly update the System Requirements of LotRO. If you are, what are the new requirements?
A39: You heard right! This is an ongoing discussion and has been for some time. I will say that we have a proposal on the table for new computer min specs, but until we make a decision on whether or not to pursue this proposal it would be premature to publish any specifics.
If, twitter, facebook, random forum messages are going to continue to be official [exclusive] sources of news, then those need to be included in the system requirements. By exclusive, I mean a single piece of news, like an update status, a patch note clarification, etc, that are not also echoed on more official channels like the game launcher. Often piecemeal offerings are catered to one or the other. IMHO, the game launcher should obtain all game related news (making this request obsolete)... but currently it does not work that way and many folks who agree to Turbine's ToS, but not Twitter's are left wondering what is going on with LOTRO.

I apologize if this has been asked but i haven't found it yet. Will the current content that has been scaled to level 85 be scaled to 95, including the Erebor instances and if not why not?

Oh, and I have yet to be in an expansion where they leveled up older stuff with the new xpac.. they waited until the skirm packs came out 2-4 months later, if they were even planning on it. What was it.. a total revamp and 3 years for Fornost?
Actually.. I want to be clear... JW Barry said:
That pretty much rules out any other instances... unless the NDA drops tomorrow and someone says otherwise.
So there is no quest pack like there was in Rohan, just the all in one bundle?
Nor sure of a good place to put this post, as it is about HD, just like all the 40 questions.
By my count, November 18th is in 21 days.
Any word on more dev diaries to answer player questions (like the hinted at changes to threat) and the dropping of the NDA so we can get some real player feedback on all the changes? Maybe another 20 questions? Or is the release date being slid back?
Thanks for info.
