Lotro Lookout: The Portable Edition

Well, although personal health issues and the death of my pc, has kind of kept me 'off me' game lately (on a friends laptop now)...here are a few things found at the forums about speeding things up for those on a laptop (or REALLY slow PC). But first …

→ the dev team is on the ball by prepping another batch of content for May. Update 3
→ The centerpiece of Update 3 comes in the form of four brand-new instances: two skirmishes and two dungeons
→ Update 3 will also introduce us to a different type of event: a treasure hunt.
→ One of the biggest pieces of news is that the expansion will be raising the level cap to 75, not 70 as previously reported.
→ How's mounted combat coming along? Good news on this front: Mounted combat is deep in development and has reached the prototype stage. It's something they want to do right.

→ "The other thing we're excited about is the new raid that (Executive Producer) Kate Paiz mentioned in her Producer's Letter," he went on. "This is a dragon raid, something else that we're working very extensively on right now. It's actually a 24-person raid. It sets the right scale - this is probably one of the largest creatures we've ever made in LotRO. He's huge... Most of the time you're just going to be looking at his head, because the body is too large to effectively have 24 people push it around."

One Response to Lotro Lookout: The Portable Edition

  1. Spitt says:

    Can’t make a new topic or edit latest lookout any other way so will post this new info here in comments

    Turbine is taking over full operations of The Lord of the Rings Online™ throughout Europe starting June 1, 2011. We’re merging the US and EU services into one mega-service we’re calling the LOTRO Global Service. http://www.lotro.com/news/latestnews/1157

    3. I play on the EU service today. Do I need to do anything?

    Yes. All current players of the LOTRO service operated by Codemasters will need to migrate their account to the new global service. This simple one-time process will allow current players to easily move game access and characters to the global service.
