    Bullroarer Update 21.2 - Preview and Release Notes

    Welcome to our first open preview of Update 21.2. These notes are for Bullroarer, released on Thursday September 14th. Both the notes and the update are a work in progress, so you should expect things will change over time. We look forward to hearing your feedback and receiving your bug reports.

    The Bullroarer database has been wiped. Please feel free to copy your current live character to Bullroarer using the LIVE transfer wizard.

    Known Issues:

    • The Filter Panel UI is using placeholder buttons, panel appearance, and icons.
    • The mount collection has many incorrect links to the LOTRO Store.
    • The new instances do not yet have the new rewards hooked up to the Tier 1, Tier 2, or Challenge chests.
    • Voice-overs are not yet present for the new content. Neither are German or French localized text.
    • Lootbox gear does not exist on this build due to a data compilation error.
    • The combat music in “The Dungeons of Naerband” appears to be causing the client to crash - please use the option to "Disable Combat Music" as a workaround until this can be addressed.


    Focus for this Beta:

    Our focused feedback for the new instances has been pushed back to the NEXT Bullroarer beta due to stability issues. During the NEXT beta session members of the QA team will be looking for full groups running the new instances (in particular the 6-person “The Dungeons of Naerband”) and will offer a lotro points code to a randomly selected player from those full groups a few times each day.

    • To enter “The Dungeons of Naerband”, you will need to complete the discovery deed. Find the sewer culvert at the base of Naerband in Talath Urui at approximately 62.0S x 19.7E.
    • To enter “The Court of Seregost”, you will need to complete the discovery deed. Find the door up on the ramparts of Seregost around 49.0S x 33.0E. To climb Seregost, you will need to complete the Seregost quest line, or speak to Lansu in the Eyes & Guard tavern.
    • If you are making a new character on Bullroarer, or have not completed your Gorgoroth allegiance gear sets on your live copied character, please visit Vastin in the Eyes & Guard tavern and pick up packages labeled Last Alliance and Towers appropriate for your class. You may also want to select a few pieces from the "Mordor I <type> Abyssal" and "Mordor I <type> Wyrm" packages.



    Of Special Note:
    Plateau of Gorgoroth Instances
    Bring a full fellowship with you when you enter "The Dungeons of Naerband", a place of fire and anguish. Prepare to encounter the Maiden of Flame and face her ally, the chief torturer, in the prison of Direhold.
    You will need a small fellowship to aid the rangers as they penetrate "The Court of Seregost" and struggle to thwart Lhaereth in her attempts to unleash a second Great Plague.

    Filters
    There is a new main menu item - Filters (alt+r default key mapping). This new panel has three tabs that let you filter out sounds, quests, and items (for the current character, or for your entire account) that you never want to receive or hear again.
    Anything that you add to the Loot filtered list will not be awarded to you again (will not appear in your inventory or pending loot). To add an item, drag it from your inventory to the filtered list. To remove an item drag it from the filtered list to anywhere else.
    Anything you add to the Quests filtered list will no longer attempt to auto-bestow, will not appear as a quest ring on the mini-map radar, and will not appear as a quest ring over npc or mob heads. To filter a quest, in the bestowal dialog, click the filter or account filter button at the bottom left. To remove filtering of that quest, simply drag it off of your filtered list.
    Anything you add to the Sounds filtered list will no longer play as audio in your game client. To add a sound, go to a place/situation in game where you hear the sound. Click the record button to see a list of all sounds currently playing (this list will keep updating until you click stop or close the UI). You can play any sound on this list by right or double clicking it. Drag any sound to the character or account filtered list.

    Mounts Collection
    The mount collection has been revamped to match the style of the emote and pet collections and list every mount available.
    Because we have many mounts that can no longer be acquired (such as pre-order and special event mounts), the mount collection has a unique feature that will cause every character to have their own mount collection maximum. If a mount is no longer available, it will not appear in the mount collection panel unless you already have that mount. So while a newly created character on a new account might only see a mount collection with 144 possible mounts, a player who has the Dusky Nimblefoot Goat for example will see a mount collection with 145 possible mounts.

    Daily requests from the Expedition Organizers
    There are new repeatable Daily Requests available from the Expedition Organizers in each of the Allegiance halls. Speak to Vórthi, Tancram, Glórellas, and Aster Hayward each day to accept these quests.


    News and Notes:
    Quests and Adventure Areas

    • Talath Urui - Shackles have been excavated from the rubble and can now be reached for the quest "Breaking the Chains".
    • Talath Urui - The hiding spot should now be more obvious in the quest instance "Borangos the Horror".
    • Gorgoroth Resource Dungeons - Allegiance bonus quests no longer go away after completing an Allegiance. If you have already completed one or more Allegiances, the bonus quests will return for you.
    • Gorgoroth Resource Dungeons - Barad-dur: Lore of the Past no longer has an Ancient Tome hidden in rubble. Barad-dur: Gathering Relics no longer has a relic hiding in a wall.
    • Gorgoroth Resource Instances: The following deeds are now available: Resources of Gorgoroth, Gathering of Resources, Gathering of Resources (Intermediate), Gathering of Resources (Advanced).
    • The Tales of Gorgoroth Deed is now visible in your deed log as soon as at least one objectives has been completed.

    Items

    • The Aria of the Valar now includes a Class Deed Tome that will automatically complete trait point granting class deeds. If you have already used an Aria of the Valar, visit your class trainer and get your Class Deed Tome.
    • A large selection of armour that was previously invisible on your High Elf now has its proper appearance.
    • The Unidentified Third Age Legendary Item Box that can be acquired via barter once again correctly delivers a level 100 legendary item.
    • When running the Pelennor Instances: Blood of the Black Serpent, The Quays of the Harlond, and The Silent Street, at level 115, you can now receive equipment that scales up to Item Level 315.
    • Crafting - Doomfold Healing, Milkthistle, Conhuith, and Lhinestad Draughts now remove negative effects up to a maximum strength of level 120.
    • Crafting - Captain Crest and Warden Carving recipes may be executed with Universal Ingredient Packs.
    • Crafting - Food produced from Doomfold Cooking now has a stack size up to 100.
    • Crafting - Woodworkers are now able to craft Strong Boards of Doomfold Wood, Weaponsmiths are now able to craft Quality Doomfold Ingots, and Tailors are now able to craft Well-treated Doomfold Leather.

    PvMP

    • Ettenmoors - High Elves can now use the back doors of keeps.
    • Level 115 Audacity gear has been added to barter vendors in the Moors.
    • The Glan Vraig training dummies are now level 115.

    UI

    • Fixed raid vital background sizes.
    • Scourge-slayer of Mordor deeds will no longer incorrectly show the accelerate button since these deeds cannot be accelerated.
    • The Barbershop camera now zooms farther out for better visibility of Body Type option changes.

    Misc

    • In game voice chat: Party member voice volume can be adjusted individually. Party volume control visibility can be toggled by clicking on the party voice chat icon for party members. Default Group Volume preference has been added to the Voice section of Audio options. Use this volume slider to set the default voice volume level of new group members. This setting is 75% volume by default.
    • Mordor Lost Lore dialog is now affected by the Voice-Over sound volume setting.
    • Lua - We recently changed the way LOTRO ListBoxes work to fix a category of UI bugs. This may have side-effects for Lua scripts dependent on the broken behavior. If you encounter issues with your existing Lua plugins, you may want to change the ListBox orientation from Horizontal to Vertical and remove the SetMaxItemsPerLine limitation setter.
      • The Lua interface is being updated to provide four new functions for the ListBox control. They should be used in the place of SetMaxItemsPerLine( value ) and GetMaxItemsPerLine() which are being deprecated:
        • number GetMaxColumns();
        • void SetMaxColumns( number );
        • number GetMaxRows();
        • void SetMaxRows( number );

    2 instances ? Is this final ?

    - I have to say I'm really impressed by the idea of the 'Filters' system. That is exactly something lots of people wanted for many years, thanks for putting it in. Will patch client and report on its performance.

    - Finally the missing deeds have been added for the resources instances, thanks for that as well. Now I'll be able to finish last Meta deed of Mordor landscape.

    - I see the deed advancement error mislabel has been corrected for Scourges, does that mean you have also fixed the boxes loot table? It was currently copy/pasted from East Gondor roving threats.

    Of a side note, if you can please look into these small issues, it would be great.

    - The Flurry buff of Champions in yellow line is not scaled and is giving the same value from level 105, which is around 1.2k critical rating.
    - Base Rend debuff of Champions in yellow line is not scaled and is giving the same value from level 105, which is around 2k armor debuff.
    - Might and Vitality stats from traitlines for Champions are not scaled.

    Thanks,

    "Level 115 Audacity gear has been added to barter vendors in the Moors."

    Bring on the creep QQ about how freeps are getting stronger while creeps have been underpowered and ignored for years.

    Oh god, I hope Pelennor gear doesn't become equip-worthy again. Spending over 100 Black Keys to get teal shoulder piece for all your characters, Just to see it get replaced by an old instance gear a month later.

    Will lol if that happens

    All lootbox items i got are gone after copying to BR.

    I am guessing you tweaked every item above item level 326 to disappear , and while i am ultra happy about your intention , i believe you should downscale those items to around item level 326 and not destroy them : )

    The 'new' deeds are auto completed if you've already completed the requirements , so thanks for that. I'd hate to grind crafting instances all over again : )

    New Mount Panel - finally! thank you!

    I found a couple of bugs:

    - the task chest in Cirith Gorgor is flying in the air
    - Atli Atli Spider-bane in front of the Tower of Cirith Ungol in Mordor is also flying
    - There is a big hole in the rocks in Lhingris (South) which has a really unrealistic look
    - A lot of quest rewards in Mordor (in the same quest) are totally equal. Maybe this is made intentionally? I do not understand why.

    Best regards

    Please remove the dungeons ASAP, we tried it with a group and everyone got a lotroclient when reaching the first pack, you just can't play it ....


    The other one in seregost is nice, but way too easy in t1.

    It's hard to believe that we got only 2 instances and a raid for the WHOLE Mordor expansion... Even the Pelennor instance cluster have more than Mordor.

    Not the whole Mordor expansion. Less than 50% of Mordor have been released so far;

    As someone has already reported loot box items (rings/shoulders) are missing in current build.

    Mordor expansion does not cover the whole Mordor from what I have known so far.

    I'd suggest removing the "Ignore" subtab from the Friends tab of the Social panel and moving it to a new fourth Characters tab on the Filters panel. It never made sense to me to look for people you've ignored on the Friends tab. It could have a new conceptual home in the Filters panel alongside everything else you've ignored. (This would also be a great opportunity to implement an account-shared ignore list if someone has time!)

    Restoration Essences (incoming healing) are also missing from the build.

    No mention of a fix to Runekeeper/LM tactical damage rating? Why has tactical damage been slashed and yet raw physical damage been doubled??

    And yeah, only 2 instances for an expansion is very underwhelming, sad to see no resources available to make more, far are now the days of moria and enedwaith with lots of instances

  22. #22
    Are you not able to release an instance cluster!!! with more then 2 instances?
    We never got that before(outside great river with only 1 6 man but that was not even meant to be a cluster)

    Are you not able to scale tact dmg correctly?
    Do you want to see dps spot filled in the instances/raid with hunters only?(rk as support class kek)

    Are you not able to do general class balancing before getting out instances/the raid later?

    Are you not able to fix the broken pvp(SCALE CREEP STATS,0-4% FINESSE is bull*****)

    I am sorry but this is just disappointing.....

    Oh... new content is not good
    Where balance classes? Where are the changed main characteristics? Where normal armour and jewellery for each blue, yellow and red trait panel? (for example, beorn and captain can't have heal armour and jewellery)
    Why should we go again daily alliance quests? Where new daily quests? Where new content?
    Why do you enter instances, but can not make existing content better?
    And why the advertised expansion has so little content and so few instances?

  24. #24
    Any ETA on when the Creep stat changes will be happening? Base stats need a massive buff, and the corruptions need a nerf. Warg damage also desperately needs to be to re-assigned to other skills. I've already done the math for that (https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthr...tealth-Classes).
