Welcome back Rowan and it's nice to hear some news. I appreciate the VIP mail system. It will help considering other games have it too (even though it breaks immersion a bit).
I'm a bit puzzled by the chicken ball. Although I don't mind it and it's nice to see an ingame "game", I hope we don't get any flack from animal lovers.
Fear not, you are with friends: remnant-lotro.guildlaunch.com
So fluff events, minor changes to the UI, another instance where i'm not actually playing my character. Colour me unimpressed. Well at least there is an update to North Downs, I like that area it just seems "jumbled". I just hope they do not remove the elite orc camps. I just solo'd those quests on one of my guardian alts and am glad to say they were nicely challenging. One mob I had the advantage, two and the fight could go either way, three...run away! I loved it.
Heres hoping that the change in leadership brings back some of the challenge to the game from normal mobs. I'm not asking for every single boar I have to kill to be like the fight on the Bridge of Khazad-Dum but something to keep me awake please while fighting landscape mobs.
It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.
I agree. Personally, I feel Turbine's method of communication are incredibly odd. There is too much that is vague or "beat around the bush" which inevitably leads to much speculation and assumption. Sometimes we are told that things are obvious in those vague statements and other times that we shouldn't assume things unless literally stated. But, I for one "assumed" the license had been extended based on the "we plan to continue supporting lotro" and was led to believe I was correct to assume. Other times we should never assume? I don't know.
is there any chance you can assign a dev to read over the minstrel forums (beta and live) and actually communicate with the minstrels? There were many excellent suggestions made in beta and carried forward to the live forums, which went no place; we're feeling very ignored and neglected.

I disagree that 1 time purchases erode the incentive to be VIP, or more to the point it doesn't erode the incentive as much as allowing people to sub for a month and keep the perks after dropping to Premium. Perks should be tied to being a current VIP, if you drop down to a lower level the VIP perks go away and if you want certain ones you can purchase them. The "Grandfather Clause was the single biggest factor in making sustained subscriptions unappealing, imo.
I think this is the first time a function developed solely as a Store bought function has been added as a VIP Perk.
It's all to clear we are on our own.[/CENTER]
Can, if nothing else, something be done about the massive size of certain windows? I mean, both the BB and trait tree panels are so huge. The take 100% of the vertical space on my screen, and like 70% of the vertical space. Just decrease all the padding and it should be a nice fix already.
Welcome back Rowan btw, as you have probably seen on the forums there is a lot of discussion about how good or bad the last expansion actually is and how it could be improved. I hope you can get some of the major problems fixed relatively soon and make sure stuff actually gets finished before release in the future.

Welcome back Rowan (it was nice seeing you at DDO, but extra cool having you back home) *big smile*
Thank you so much for the tantalizing news about the mail changes. I double checked my calendar to make sure it wasn't April 1st.
Cookies for all!
Thalia, for Reacher
Bubbie, for posterity
Glyndis, because I needed an elf
Is it just me or does people complaining about Big Battles gating the next part of the Epic Book just sound like people trying to get out of buying HD?

Sorry to say that but I really miss Codemasters. Anyway, please keep doing something in the name of Middle Earth.
Welcome back, Rowan! Glad to see you have your plate heaped full!

I understand about the low levels. The only time I play now is when I duo with my gf at lower levels. Lots of nostalgia.
Yeah Hi Sapience, I see you there hiding in the shadows.
You think maybe if you have time you can take a look at the effects Fire and Light Oils are having for Huntsman's version of Barbed Arrow?
I've submitted a bug ticket, but I'd like to expand on my discovery.
It seems rather than becoming the the Fire Oil or Light Oil variant, when a Huntsman uses them, Barbed Arrow becomes the Bowmaster version of the skill.
Rendering you unable to use it while on the move.
Again, let me stress, I am a Huntsman: Not a Bowmaster, Not a Trapper of Foes.
Barbed Arrow works just fine for me with no Oils. I can Induct and fire it while on the move.
I appreciate you have a lot on your plate, and many other more pressing matters to deal with.
And I wouldn't bother with a forum post unless it was something that dealt directly with and such an impact on the central mechanic of my chosen class trait line.
In the meantime, I've had to forgo the use of oils unless I know movement isn't going to be an issue. That or I know I'll be spending my time on my War-Steed.
I just hope this "little" bug does not escape your attention. Thank you ^^
And if you read the above and think 'give the player in the driverseat their steering wheel back', you've got the philosophy behind it too.
Finally I conclude by asking rather begging to really improve this game and to pay tribute to the world of Tolkien thanks to this game I'm learning to love , as well as in regard to the re vamp and feel of the races I care much even though I know that will never happen ... (at the bottom would not hurt a lot of games at the moment are doing this type of upgrade [ and I do not do names ] ) .
I hope you read these words of mine and I hope you can consider the Rowan as many other proposals requested by users ... hopefully .
