Book 12 is now live on the Roheryn server and the buzz is imminating across the Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO) community. This week in the Troll Report we take a look at some of the top threads on the official LOTRO forums. The hot topic for the week is clearly the changes slated for the Book 12 update. With new features on the horizon such as the Barber Shop, Outfit System, the new Ettendeep dungeon, and the various class changes, people are starting and contributing to threads about each.
Book 12 went live on the Rohery Preview Server this week and the public got their first look at the Barber Shop and Outfit systems. These new systems will allow for a wider range of character customization and the official forums have been buzzing with questions. The Dev's have been dropping into this thread periodically to answer questions about the new systems. Ten Ton Hammer even created a new walkthrough video of the Barber Shop System.
Champions of Middle-earth might find this thread of interest. It has a lot of feedback relating to the class and changes from the Book 12 update. There are a lot of well thought post in this thread even prompting a response from Graalx. Add your feedback on the new changes and tell us what you think.
Guardians of Middle-earth might want to have a look at this thread. Hnetto offers a strong response of initial feedback on the Guardian changes from Book 12 prompting a few responses questioning aspects, but overall a great thread with some good discussion for those looking to contribute feedback for the King of tanks, the Guardian. Yes, I am inparial.
This thread is keyed to an event set to occur on the Roheryn server this Friday. You can join the Dev's and many other members of the Lord of the Rings Online community in a MPvP showdown. Join this discussion and you can find out all the details and ask any questions you might have about the event.
This is a good thread to get some information on the Ettendeep dungeon going live with Book 12. There are some good questions asked in this thread and some interesting answers. I am kind of interested in seeing how this dungeon will play out when things change hands while a group is hunting inside.
This thread was started by Gaelivor and entails a comical and perhaps the most disturbing thing I have ever seen. I give this thread a plus for adding a laughable bit of humor to the official forums and while disturbing, still a very funny thread.
This is a giood speculation thread on what future expansions for Lord of the Rings Online might be like in terms of land areas. It provides a lot of good possibilities of what we could see, even though it is all speculation it is still a fun thread to participate in.
This weeks kinship highlight goes to The Pillagers of Pipeweed. This Kinship resides on Landroval server and is a moderate role-playing oriented kinship that will be focusing on all aspects of the game. View their official forum thread or visit their site Here.
