    Bullroarer Update 21.3 - Beta #1 sneak peek - Preview and Release Notes

    Welcome to our first open preview of Update 21.3. These notes are for Bullroarer, released on Friday October 227th. 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.

    Focus for this Beta:
    Please Join us this weekend for an early sneak peek at the new Raid: The Abyss of Mordath. Note that this is an early preview, and all of the bosses have not yet been placed in the space. We would love your feedback on the space, the mobs and mob density between bosses, and the difficulty of the first boss fight. Since the second boss has not yet been placed in the space, you will not be able to proceed beyond reaching the entrance to that space.

    • To enter the raid, you will need to Discover the Abyss of Mordath. Find the door in the Chamber of the Watchers in the lower levels of Barad-dur (Western edge of the Barad-dur map on the lower corridor branching).
    • This is a level 115 raid (and does not scale) with 2 difficulty tiers.
    • For testing purposes, the quests that allow you to bypass a boss that you have already defeated have been set to daily rather than weekly reset. Note that this is a new mechanic to allow for a new, less prohibitive, style of raid locks. The raid group will be able to skip past the the bosses defeated by the first member of the party to cross the line at the beginning of the instance.

    Known Issues:
    • The rope in the Abyss of Mordath to access the first boss fight does not allow use in combat but the nearby caged creatures will force you to remain in combat. To workaround, please jump down and wait through the 30 second broken leg before activating the fight.
    • The second boss in The Abyss of Mordath has not yet been placed, so you cannot proceed beyond that point in the raid.
    • Various Abyss of Mordath quests and deeds have TBD or DNT text.

    New in this build:
    • The npc "Dust" in the Eyes & Guard tavern stairwell offers a quest that rewards Ash of Gorgoroth.

New mount collection deeds/titles have also been added for the 2015 & 2016 Festival steeds, Goat mounts, and Gondor mounts!
    • Loremaster Class Items "Book of Beasts", class items at level 20, level 30, and level 40, now give minor bonuses to pet stats.

    • Human female mood animations have been updated.
    • Players who have logged out in the Vales of Anduin may be sent to Archet upon logging in. This is because the absolute location of the Beorning starting area has been moved. Other than this possible teleport, you should notice no difference in the Vales of Anduin.

    • Gorgoroth Scourge Spoils boxes no longer include Gondor Silver Pieces or Anórien Sealed Wax.
