Raid Content

Raid Content - Lord of the Rings Online -

Yesterday, Orion, of the development team for Turbine's Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar made a post on their official forums that confirms that the new game based on the popular book series will contain raid content. The post goes on to say that players will not be required to raid, that there will be plenty of non-raid content, and more. You can read the whole post by following the link at the bottom:


‘Oh boy!’

It’s a catch phrase from one of my favorite TV shows of all time; Quantum Leap. Sam Beckett, the main character, would say this when he realized that he had leapt into a difficult situation. See, Sam was a time-traveler who fixed wrongs by helping people who needed the help. I kept hoping that Sam was going to leap into me and fix my little conundrum; alas.

A few months ago I penned my first Dev Diary stating that we were solo friendly (we still are), I also stated that there would be group instances (still there!) and I also said of raids, ‘At this time, the answer is no.’ (Oh boy!).

Development is mercurial; what is true one day may not necessarily be true the next. Over the past few months we have mentioned other major changes and now, I must tell you that we will have raids in Lord of the Rings: Shadows of Angmar.

What a difference four months can make.
