Dev Diary: Mirkwood Skirmish Rewards

Dev Diary: Mirkwood Skirmish Rewards - MMORPG.com

A new dev diary published on the official Lord of the Rings Online website details the reward system for the upcoming Skirmish feature to be introduced with the launch of Siege of Mirkwood next month.

LOTRO developer Brian "Zombie Columbus" understands that most players will play new content for the loot, explaining, "People play new content for the rewards. Sure, if the content is fun it is more likely to get replayed, but even if we made the hardest, most boring boss fight in the game drop the best loot, a lot of people would still play it. With that in mind, we've tried to design the Skirmish rewards system in as free-form a way as possible, allowing players to play the content they want and receive mostly equivalent rewards."

To accomplish this, players will earn Skirmish marks in a number of ways, and will be able to trade them in at vendors for their shiny rewards.

For the full rundown, read the dev diary here.
