Welcome to Far Anórien - Update 18 Notes Published - MMORPG.com

The Lord of the Rings Online forum has been updated with the latest patch notes. Players will be able to travel through epic story books five and six, The Ride of the Rohirrim and The Battle of the Pelennor Fields. Update 18 also features an increased level cap, a new instance cluster called Battle of the Pelennor Fields and new featured instances.

  • There's a new "PvMP Performance Override" option on the Graphics page. This option is turned on by default. With the option set, entering monsterplay areas will automatically set various advanced graphics and UI options to lower values temporarily to improve PvMP performance. Your settings will be restored up leaving monsterplay areas.
  • There are two new checkboxes in the social options panel which allow you to suppress effects from showing up in the Opponent Vitals panel. These function the same as the ones that suppress effects in the group vitals, allowing you to suppress effects that are non-dispellable or effects that aren't cast by you. Checking these boxes may improve your performance in the thick of combat.
  • There is a new option in advanced graphics "Avatar Texture Compositing". Disabling this option reduces facial details displayed in game and may improve client performance.
  • All housing neighbourhoods now contain Task boards. You can accept and complete every task at these boards.

It's a large and extensive update, so head to the Lord of the Rings Online forum to read the full notes.
