OP  7/08/08 11:47:47 AM#1

MMORPG.com News Manager Keith Cross was recently on the recieving end of a tour of the upcoming Book 14: The Ring-Forges of Eregion, the newest free update coming from the makers of Lord of the Rings Online. Today, he gives an overview of his experience with some of the new content.

News Manager Keith Cross hasn’t had a vacation in over a year, and doesn’t plan on taking one any time soon. How does he stay sane? By touring the virtual vacation spots of MMORPGs. This week he was guided through scenic Eregion in Eriador, Middle Earth. While there he had the chance to experience upcoming game-play from Book 14: The Ring-forges of Eregion, the upcoming free content expansion for Lord of the Rings Online.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to sit down with the folks at Turbine and play through a sampling of new content which will be released with Book 14: The Ring-Forges of Eregion. My guides for this expedition into the wilds of Middle Earth were Aaron Campbell, Live Producer for Lord of the Rings Online, and Brent Schmidt, lead content designer for Book 14. Our journey began in fair Eregion, home to one of the region’s most popular tourist attractions: the Ring Forges. Book 14 will only provide a small taste of this land, but the flavor of Eregion is robust, so a small taste is all you need for now.

Read it all here.

Cheers,
Jon Wood

Book 14 and then...the new volume awaits in the shape of The Mines of Moria.

Surely this game has to be the greatest MMO out there?

I am SO glad I bought the lifetime!  They've got to be starting Moria beta soon, right?

100% agreed.  Sadly, I think LOTRO is doomed by the restraints of the (great) IP.  There can be only so many classes, and as you said, I despised them as well.  They just weren't that fun.  Everything else about the game is fun (save the PvP, MP needs an overhaul, it's close, but not there yet), but the classes just aren't fun.

 

Oy.

Just a FYI... they are adding 2 new classes with Mines of Moria.  A druid type shapeshifting class I think, and I am not sure about the other one.

 

also, the Burglar class freakin rocks :p  It's one of the best Rogue classes I've played in any MMO

The 2 new classes are Rune-keeper and Warden

read about them: http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/the-lord-of-the-rings-online-mines-of-moria/887242p1.html

I actually think that the classes is one of the best things about LotrO and the IP have forced the devs to be a little more creative with class-design instead of the generic fantasy-classes that most other games use.. Feels like LotrO classes have alot more depth to them since thay all fit with the story and world of the trilogy...

Burglar>Rogue

Minstrel>Priest

Loremaster>Mage

Captain>Paladin

Champion>Barbarian

Guardian>Warrior

Hunter... well... its a hunter :p

If WoW = The Beatles
and WAR = Led Zeppelin
Then LotrO = Pink Floyd

I like the classes, they tend to be very clear and defined in their roles, and each has something to contribute. Unfortunately, the rate at which they deal out cool stuff for classes is lameo. You get many cool things kind of bunched up together, then go many levels in between with nothing. I would prefer one new cool thing every level or every two levels. I think some classes are worse at the beginning as well, not really coming into their own until later.

Give people some better hooks from the get-go... ya know?

But for the most part, mid to upper game, the classes seem extremely well balanced, and grouping is interesting and fun from all the variety.

Burgs on the other hand, are just plain evil :)

This update sounds fun, but once again it doesn't affect me because I am moving through this game so slowly :(

The game needs some sort of pvp. Don't get me wrong I loved the game but PVMP gets so damn repeative after a while and there's not much left to do in the game when you've done lots of rift runs, most of the big instances, done all deeds you want/need, house if you're into that (I wasen't) etc... I reached R7 before I gave up on Lotro recently.

They need to put up the info that has been released about Moria in the last 2 days. The expansion is going to rock.

With every update it becomes harder and harder to argue that this is not the best MMO ever!

I hear what you're saying about PVP, but you gotta understand that its hard to do it in a world where the story is told primarily from one side, and the other side is meant to be defeated. The best PVP comes from games where the character you've been leveling and suiting up can fight someone's elses suited up character. But in LOTRO thats impossible, since no hobbit is going to kill another hobbit, nor will players be able to become orcs (from lvl 1-50 ).

So the PvMP is the best they can come up with, but I'm sure they will expand that once the fellowship passes over the mountains. As of right now, Eriador is pretty much filled up, so there isn't much space for warzones, unless they go further south.

Nothing is for everyone.  I personally like most of the class designs a lot.   I also like the PvP better than anything I've played since DAoC.  It really plays like a light "jump in whenever" version of RvR to me.  And far from "ruining" the game, the lore forces the designers to create a cohesive world that makes some sort of sense.  Most other MMO fantasy words feel cobbled together and random once you get used to it. 

In any case great article.  I think this is the first I've read to reveal the session play in book 14 in any detail, it sounds awesome.  Looking forward to it. 

I don't want to write this, and you don't want to read it. But now it's too late for both of us.

I think one of the things that'd make me return to LOTRO is the removal of the built-in gimping of the Monster Players.  Again, the IP (mobs being inherently weaker than the good guys) is restricting the game's fun.

 

If the MPs were on equal footing as the FPs, then you might have more exciting PvP.
