Exclusive LOTRO Interview - Exploring the Mines of Moria and Book 14

Posted Mon, Jul 14, 2008 by Cody Bye

This autumn is full of MMO gaming goodness. On top of the release of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King and Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, we’re also going to be seeing the deployment of another of the industry’s biggest expansions: Lord of the Rings Online: Mines of Moria. In a recent interview with Ten Ton Hammer, the Lord of the Rings developers talked about the prequel to this upcoming expansion – Book 14 – but also touched on a number of interesting topics concerning the upcoming Mines of Moria expansion. Make sure you check it out!

Ten Ton Hammer: So what should players expect with Book 14 and the Mines of Moria?

Aaron: This Book is really the idea of moving the Fellowship beyond the walls of Rivendell and giving the players a sense of story continuation. In Moria, we’re going to close out the Volume One story with Book 15 on top of introducing the Mines of Moria expansion with Volume Two, Book One, which has a pretty long sequence that will get the players involved with the story of the dwarves that are exploring their tunnels. It’s an expeditionary party and from Eregion you’ll meet up with them and work with them to lead you through the places that the Fellowship has already gone.

LotRO's new class comes late to the party, but it is certainly an interesting choice.
