    Next Server Wide Event: BOOT up LOTRO

    BOOT up LOTRO

    The AIM: Area upgrade/clean-up/streamlining/prettification’ing’

    All humanoid on level mobs has a base drop rate of an ‘Old Boot’…1000 times less likely is the drop of ‘Gimli’s Sock’ (stolen/found and reused but never washed!!! – has a green aura effect or even poison status to char while carrying!)

    Creepy but true: creeps will also get boots as the free people also wear boots!

    An ‘Old Boot’ counts as a vote for the area in the Server wide pooled collection. A ‘Gimli’s Sock’ is a negative vote!

    I think this could even be expanded across the whole LOTRO map…to see which area ‘needs’ (ie the players would like to see) an update the most…

    Drop off your boots at the drop off boot recycling wagon…team of local NPC’s manning the wagon, some will also offer to barter items for boots and even socks!

    One wagon can be found in each area running in the vote.

    Here they will also take off your hands ‘Gimli’s Sock’ (unwillingly – they will double check and try to put you off from depositing the sock with them even suggesting other Areas…).

    Server wide event – pooled totals from ALL servers.

    1 target for all servers to reach 1 area to be polished

    If double target 2 areas will be polished and resoled and if triple top 3 will get polished, resoled and new laces.

    1 target for server (and if they double or even triple it…)

    Boot Camp– 5% speed, 2% inductions,

    Shakin Boots – 10% speed, 4% inductions, 2% dmg

    Bootilisious – 15% speed, 6% inductions, 4% dmg

    Deeds (kinda a target) for individuals

    Deed I 50 boots Put the Boot In

    Deed II 500 boots Head over Heals

    Deed III 2500 boots Tough as Old Boots

    Sock Deed ???? ?????

    So pull yourself up by your bootstraps, don’t quake in your boots head out and make a difference or die trying, with your boots on!

    Do you think this is a good idea or maybe it’s a load of old cobblers…?

    I did not get it at first then I started laughing!

    Well...It's an interesting approach, but I don't think that it will last.

    Well the DMG buff would be pretty useless with the state of play at the moment post HD! TOO EASY!

    And 3 areas are being upgraded so some other kind of 'result' needs to be found...

    suggestions...

    Oh, I don't know...I think it has sole.

    Perhaps this, or something similar, could be used to help the dev team figure out what areas we want revamped the most after this year's changes.

    At any rate, it's an amusing approach and I give the OP ten toes up for the concept.
