(Btw no one believes theyre gonna drop another raid in autumn, they're prolly gonna push it to like January)
    So choosing between devs who:
    1. Actually make raids
    2. Chat about raids

    you'll choose second ones? Ok

    One raid per year is too much anyway for such small (also too whiny and unthankful) audience.

    Bro how small do you think this game is? There are atleast 10+ raiding kins in ark alone if we say there is 100 people in each kin (about 3-4 pages) that means there are 1000 raiders atleast in just one server and pls for the love of god try to put this in prespective, imagine if you only had one festival for the whole year while ssg kept only talking to raiders asking and only doing what they wanted. Imagine all the streamers were hardcore raiders how would u feel if u only had something you can do once a week for an hour or 2 at best

    As a former raider (non hard core) and now semi-casual raider, I'm certainly a fan of SSG continuing to put in the occasional raid. Raiders need love too (even if the hard core raiders barely deserve it ).

    Never the less, you do need to keep in mind the sort of audience LOTRO largely appeals to, which I suspect to be a more casual crowd, who love the world of Middle-earth, love the story, love the lore, love the characters, love going to new and varied landscapes ( ideally sprawling for those of us who like to explore and look around every tree, rock, and hilltop to places others rarely go).

    And so things that appeal to casual players, role-players, and the like are likely to take priority.

    As someone who advocates for more raid and group content to also be included, I still understand this.

    And that sir is how you kill a game appeal to the people who don’t take the game seriously (I get that it’s a game you know what I mean by serious????) I’m not gonna start a “raiders bring in more money then casuals argument cause it’s pointless, but I hope you understand that rn Lotro is losing its raiding community several Raiding Kins have quite the game. So realize that we need each other to survive and by tilting the balance towards casuals u lose your raiders and in the long run the game

    Will the Scavenger Hunts only be available during the Anniversary Celebration (and presumably the encore)? Last year they rolled out over ten weeks, extending beyond the end of the Anniversary Celebration proper.

    Whichever way it's decided, it would be good to make it clear in the schedule.

    https://youtu.be/T5eIHS6ynB0?t=46m20s

    It says that there will be a scaling up of one of the bosses from The Rift of Nurz Ghashu raid and putting it in as a scaling instance during the Summer Festival.

    I think that some players just took this snippet and assumed that it meant "we're making a scaled-up raid". Can you clarify?

    Ah nice, that bit of new info slipped by me! Yes, we are scaling up one of the bosses from The Rift of Nurz Ghashu and putting it in as a scaling instance during the Summer Festival. That is a different thing than scaling up the entirety of that raid, though, but yes, we are doing the thing as a scaling instance during the Summer Festival.

    Care to say abit more about this? Can we except T2 version of that boss scaled? Is it worth for raiders to be hyped for this, or is it gonna be T1 faceroll boss that you can do with any random group?
    Please don't make it easy, make it actually very hard to finish and challenging!
    Any information would be nice to hear from this topic please.

    Wow that sounds fun! I hope it's a challenge and not easy peasy.

    Now this sounds interesting. Having run the Rift frequently back during SoA, I can already see several potential candidates for this -- but it sounds like this is going to be an instance separate from the actual level 50 raid. If that is the case, I think it is the best solution overall when it comes to scaling the Rift itself.

    Is this new scaling instance intended to be a difficult one, or at least have a T1/T2 set of difficulty options? The way the Rift worked made sense back in the day, but all the skill changes which came with Helm's Deep -- along with the 86-95 and 106-115 stat jumps -- I suspect would leave the original mechanics outdated. And after the Abyss of Mordath, a proper "lair" raid boss seems like a nice change of pace.

    If we can get rewards unique to this specific instance in some way (such as from completing a Challenge of some kind), even better. I don't see too much incentive to run traditional scaling instances other than Featured Instances since Mordor was released, due to Light of Earendil gear mostly leaving other scaling instance rewards outdated in comparison, so something like a decent source of Anfalas Star-lit Crystals would immediately make it more attractive at level cap. But what I think might work best would be to have the new scaling instance drop special barter items alongside any standard rewards, and update or add a new barter NPC somewhere who would trade unique consumables for them -- there's already an NPC (Ruinestel) in Iorelen's Camp just outside the Rift of Nurz Ghashu entrance who offers Imladris Miruvor and Ringnen Salve for Rift-iron Coins along with other consumables, so giving another reason to return there seems thematically appropriate. Perhaps level-appropriate versions of the Potions of Ringdirith/Ruindirith/Lachdirith/Nordirith (temporary mitigation boost against a specific Tactical damage type) which were potential rewards for the Ithildin Coin quest released with Mines of Moria? We haven't seen consumables like those for a long time. A small percentage bonus along with any rating bonuses to a specific mitigation type would immediately give this instance something new to offer not seen elsewhere in the game, and doubly so if the items do not Bind on Acquire.

    If the boss in question turns out to be the final one of the Rift, I'd love to see everyone's reaction to an updated version of that fight, as that was one of the only bosses I know capable of causing up to 10 Dread. As we already have the ability to revisit the fifth (the "lava lake") and seventh (colosseum) boss arenas in the Rescue in Nurz Ghashu skirmish, I'm hoping the scaled instance will take us to a different section of the raid instance.
    One less Orc in the world is a good thing, and one less leader among the Orcs is a great thing.

    Please maintain the thread clean for news and discussion about the Events Schedule, there are plenty of space in other forum sections for general game discussion. Thanks.

    How long is the anniversary event running (not the encore): Schedule says

    "11th Anniversary 4/19/18@10am 5/9/18@3am"

    but the LOTRO Beacon Issue 57 and a (new?) loading screen say it runs through May 13th

    ".... LOTRO Bonus Days brings you LOTRO's 11th-anniversary celebration now through May 13th...."

    Just asking to plan accordingly.

    I have added the 11th Anniversary end date change to the initial post. Just to make sure it's put somewhere "official": We have extended the 11th Anniversary event through May 13th.

    Thanks Cord. I was just making sure in case people only checked the initial post thus avoiding the fiasco of an early (perhaps the first? I can't remember for sure) festival... long before your time, young 'un

    Any chance for any info on whether the scavenger hunt is extending past the end of the anniversary fest like it did last year? I've seen the question both here and in general discussion, but I haven't seen anyone give a knowledgeable answer. :/


    thanks

    It's unfortunate then that the quest text seems to say that it will be open for some time after the festival ends.

    Probably quest text for the year 1 to 10 quests is the same that last year. In 2017 Scavenger Hunt active period was from April 20 to July 13th (Anniversary Festival 2017 finished in May 8th).

    "to" vs "thru" again

    Cord

    Thanks for the latest Beacon - you always do a great job especially telling us about things we might not hear about.

    Just a tip to avoid the usual unnecessary crying and wailing... you might want to edit that Beacon (Issue 59) where you state the dates for the Encore and Summer Festival:

    In place of:

    • Upcoming Festivals: Anniversary Encore June 7th - 18th & Summer Festival June 28th to July 17th.


    may I suggest an edit to:

    • Upcoming Festivals: Anniversary Encore June 7th thru 17th & Summer Festival June 28th thru July 16th.


    I realise your version is "accurate" but I think my suggested edit may be more "helpfully communicative"

    Just an idea. I mean many if not most of us consider 3am server time is about the end of a day rather than the start of a new one

    Please review this with Cord. This change has come up before and is not helpful. As I learned in the service, "Consistency is better than correctness." The worlds are used to end date meaning 0300 Eastern on that date. This change has been tried before and the feedback was not kind. Plus, I understand that through in this context has a different (confusing) meaning in non-American English. 11 years of (mostly) doing it one way is an excellent argument for "ain't broke; don't fix it."
    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

    From that, I assume the Scavenger Hunt will NOT continue during the Anniversary Encore... but if I'm wrong, enquiring minds want to know
