The Lord of the Rings Online is having a day. In addition to its latest class and Legendary Item revamp being playable on the public test server, the team at Standing Stone Games have unveiled the official name of the long-awaited expansion set in Gundabad. Fate of Gundabad, as it's being called, will launch in Fall 2021 according to the developer today on Twitter.
With The Lord of the Rings Online players able to go hands on with the MMO's first class sincce 2014 today thanks to the Brawler hitting the Bullroarer test server, it got Bradford thinking about how he chose his favorite class in any MMO he plays. Spoiler alert: They are usually ranged.
Shadowfax has raced to the Moria, as the first expansion for The Lord of the Rings Online is hitting the fast-progression Legendary server this week. This will also bring a bump in level cap to 60 on the new progression server which launched only two months ago.
The Lord of the Rings Online's legendary progression server Anor is getting a level cap increase with tomorrow's patch, according to Standing Stone Games. The cap increase covers the Mordor expansion as well as the Legacy of the Necromancer quest pack on the progression server, putting it one step closer to being on content parity with the rest of the game servers.
It looks like Lord of the Rings Online's monetization will not change in a significant manner before the Gundabad expansion due sometime later this year.
In game awards for your time are paramount to keeping players engaged, and Bradford can't think of one that players he speaks to love showing off more than a hard-to-earn character title. Is there a title you craved and had to have in any MMO you've played?
Here's a quick PSA for all you Lord of the Rings Online players out there who may have missed it: today is the final day to log into Ithil.
Lord of the Rings Online is gearing up for its Gundabad expansion slated for later this year, though the team has been hard at work with content in the meantime. Update 30, titled "Blood of Azog" has released today, bringing the continuation of the current epic questline, as well as a new raid.
The Lord of the Rings Online's Bullroarer server has been spun up to start testing Update 30, and with it the next raid in the MMORPG. This 12-player raid, called Fall of Khazad-dûm is slated be tested this week, with the first test happening today.
It's been a busy weekend for Lord of the Rings-themed MMORPGS. The Lord of the Rings Online is celebrating its 14th Anniversary with Anniversary celebrations, as well as releasing Update 29.5, its Further Adventures content to both the Live and Legendary servers.
It looks like The Lord of the Rings Online is on track to see a new zone hit the MMO next week, as the upcoming Update 29, also known as Wildwood, is "on track" to release next week.
In a Q&A with LOTRO's executive producer Rob Ciccolini, the developer confirmed there will be a raid coming before the new Gundabad expansion this year with Update 30. Additionally, the developers discussed the Legendary Item revamp, stating it's coming "later this year."
Previously only available with cold-hard cash through the Standing Stone Games' website, long-time Lord of the Rings Online players who waited until they could spend their LOTRO points can finally pick up the content via the in-game LOTRO store.
Personalizing your avatar is something many people say they love about playing online games. Showing off the new costume or the powerful end-game armor you found are some things Bradford's buddies enjoy doing in their MMO. How about you? How important are cosmetics to you?
