    Default Shadowfell is Launched! And Coming Soon...

    Hello all! Shadowfell Conspiracy is launched, and I want to give you an update on what's coming next.

    With Update 20 we have two new dungeons in progress, each with a unique feel. My personal favorite so far is the murder mystery. (These will be free to VIPs.)

    Early next year, we have a raid coming! I just saw the update to the Undead Dwarf Fortress Castle set today. Plans are in motion to build this... multiple bosses.

    Updating Gianthold to Epic was a huge success earlier this year (from community reaction and playtime). We're looking at more spaces we can take to Epic next year, but that comes after committed things like the raid I just mentioned.

    In the short term, we're going to get you more details about Warpriest and our plans for Reincarnation. Coming soon!

    Thank you for playing, and enjoy Wheloon and the Stormhorns.

    Thanks for all you and your team do.

    Excited to hear about the new stuff and REALLY curious about what you guys have decided for the Reincarnation system.

    It's gotta be Vale, there's not other pack as "big" with as much awesomeness potential.

    Looking forward to RWTD on EE.

    Sorry, but I could not get past the line in your paragraph of 2 quests in update 20 which was then followed by the line of next year's raid. Did I read that correctly just 2 quests in 5 to 6 months. Ouch.

    I think there more likely to update Amrath it being in a different plan from Eberron would lets them connect it to the Realms some how.

    Shroud, VoD, and Hound updated in with the Vale would be better cool though.

    I'd rather see another Amrath Story. Harry isn't dead yet, he needs to die. Perhaps have him working with Lolth or something on a plot to get revenge on us for foiling their plans.

    Just get better voice actors this time, the voice-acting in CiTW is . . . let's just say I've seen better acting in snuff-films.

    EGH > Shadowfell. Don't get me wrong Shadowfell is a good pack but EE GH is just magical. The DDO Oracle numbers paint this picture quite well.

    it's also less costly to epify a pack than make a new one (correct me if I'm wrong) . . . but then again you can't sell it again.

    Also Eberon "feels" like home, FR feels like that place we visit. if they want the FR to feel like a players home they MUST put a guildhall in Eveningstar.

    Can we stop talking about Warpriest and tell us AT LEAST WHAT IS THE NEW SORCERER PRE GOING TO BE?

    The only class with ONE SINGLE PRE. It was slated for U20. Now not even U20. It's not EVEN IN WORK. Not a single word spoken about that.

    Cmon Rowan, throw Sorcerers a bone too.

    Thank you for the great news!

    Also I'm going to take this opportunity to make another plug for Epic Sharn Syndicate levels with raid.

    More Sharn

    That all sounds great.. But what about things that affect us today? How about an update about what you working on in the patches?

    Raid completions counters are seriously broken. Last word was you weren't going to fix the majority of the issues with that.

    There are lots off issues and questions about whether things are WAI or not. There are a lot of quality of life issues that could use resolving.

    Other than a less-than-a-handful of posts, you guys have just shut down on communication again after the Xpack was released. Not surprising though, as that's Turbine's MO. You said things were going to change but all we see is more of the same.

    Disappointing.

    No wonder every other item that drops in the game is "ghostbane".

    My personal horse in the race on this one would be to epify F2P content and make the epic version of the content purchased.

    For example, epify a lot of the F2P in House J in a connected storyline (Redwillows, Tempest Spine, Xoriat, Insanity). I threw out a story board on that in a thread a while ago. Epify the storm-reach assault chain, half of that is F2P, half isnt, add on a third final part to it and you've got some added production time on making new things, recycle old things, and still have items people haven't bought if they need to buy the first part. Or heck, epify the Depths quests, but add on one final quest in that where things get crazier (oh god, no, I know what they'd do they'd connect it to the Pit somehow. Epic Pit....shudders).

    this is what the game needs, more quests (not redoing korthos quests again... or tweeking

    +1 pt for adding raid, -10 pts for no raid till next year. Every major update should have at least one raid. This is what guilds strive for, what players look forward too. This is the main failure of U19 (along with breaking the loot tables removing tons of effects, poor balance in enhancements (see stalwart pts cost vs other trees, 2 min timers, etc), lack of racial pre and the prepromised missing pre's, quests that scale mobs to crazy amounts (did no one check red alert) even in the explorer zone, etc)

    Gianthold was nicely done +2 pt. Making old raids relevant again probably is more time efficient than designing a whole new quest. Epic shroud!! (worth +5 pts), Epic Titan (+10 pts for less quests but better raid/loot back in the day) Epic tempest spine (+1 pts). what else is left? Epic water works raid?

    {+0 pts as should have been in the enhancement pass. how many years were the pre's in production?)

    Epic TR - sigh more grind... it will either need to be game breaking bonuses or no one but a handful of single toon players will invest the time. What i hear is people hate the 26-28 grind. Redoing old content is not end game as at the end of the day you want to be doing something EPIC something wow. Not water works again. See feedback on Star Wars knights of the old republic for this. No endgame = loss of players

    The game needs a better endgame. what to do when your at 28? redoing 1-28 (or 30) isn't something enjoyable, it's done as there is no end game other than trying to do epic elites. Casters have a serious problem due to the design of your epic system. DC's and caster level are not advanced past 20 unless in a destiny which is only +5 max and then what. you switch to a destiny that can't benefit from that. Epic level should be added to your caster level not destinies. DC's should be balanced to reflect a fair chance on EE. If a multi life wizard can't do any dps in epics except in a ranger destiny then something is broken. You should look at Epic elite and each class and balance what that class needs to be effective in an EE quest.

    And changing raids completions with no warning or testing? some of us don't want to go and waste time on heroic raids but the split in counters didn't give us an option. This should have been on a go forward new raid basis unless other changes for epic raid completions is coming. Where is the QA? This patch seemed rushed, shouldn't this have been held off to avoid bad press?

    Rant over, we still love the game, just not the change. Add, not change is good.

    Thanks for the update Rowan.

    During one of the Lama dev chats while poking various devs with POINTED QUESTIONS about "epicification" one of them did say.
    "SHIRE.... HOBBITS"
    But once we sent that dev back to LotRO one of our devs muttered.
    "SHROUD.... VALE".
    Though said dev isn't a content dev so they could have been making things up.

    Though even contemplating epic shroud crafting and balancing said items hurts my brain.
    Also... made up rumor just now... epic shroud has 6 parts!

    Big yes for guild hall, but one where the maintenance of buffs are made a lot better. Like a pool of plat it can renew from once you put stuff in your guild.

    Amrath? Yeah - epify it but make the epic quests and raid unique and not just 'return' but with epic numbers.
