Ettenmoors Revamp Dev Journal

Ettenmoors Revamp Dev Journal -

Turbine has posted the next installment of their dev journal series which looks into upcoming changes to the Ettenmoors with the Mines of Moria expansion for Lord of the Rings Online.

The Delving of Frór

We discussed accessing the Delving of Frór in our dev diary focusing on the landscape changes to the Ettenmoors; we should expand on this a little more here.

There are five outposts in the Ettenmoors. Each of these is controlled by the forces of the Delving of Frór and must be captured by players or monster players to gain access to the Delving, which is achieved when players or monster players control two of the five outposts. This fundamental change means that players and monster players can share access to the Delving of Frór. This should bring an interesting dynamic to the dungeon found in the Ettenmoors.

No changes have been made to the fights, layout or monsters present within the Delving, though we have increased the levels of all monsters found within to equate to the new level limits on players and monster players. In addition to these changes, we have also added a new barter item which drops from two of the main enemies, the rogmul Gaergoth and the drake matron, within the Delving of Frór. These new items are necessary to purchase new rewards which can be gained for participating in battle within the Ettenmoors (we’ll highlight these rewards at the end of the dev diary).
