Bullroarer Updates

February 25, 2011

General

Our unexpected downtime played havoc with our desire to share LOTRO news with you. We had some new activity on Bullroarer this week and so I’ve decided to give it all to you in a single post.

Updated Release Notes

Tuesday morning new release notes for Bullroarer were posted. This includes information on Legendary Items and Crafting changes both which had dev diaries this week.

Some things I find rather interesting is little tid bits like this travel note:

The travel skills earned through Reputation (Bree, Thorin’s Gate, Mirkwood, Ost Guruth, Enedwaith, Rivendell, and Michel Delving) no longer trigger each other’s cooldowns.

I think this is great and may be an actual reason for me to grind rep!

Also of interest is some items in the Producer’s Highlights posted by Rowan:

  • over 100 new quests have been added in Evendim
  • expanded wardrobe and shared storage space
  • Class Skill Deed accelerators
  • Battle Potion of Restoration (an in-combat cure for wounds, fears, poisons and diseases)
  • Livestock Feed (to increase your mount speed for a limited time)

I definitely need to go get some more wardrobe space and see how much I can acquire now! This is exactly the sort of thing I’ve been asking for!

See the full Release Notes on the LOTRO forums. Notes also provided here at CSTM in PDF format.

Eyes and Guard Tavern is Open

The Eyes and Guard Tavern is now available on Bullroarer. This is a location on Bullroarer only that allows you to do things like level up a character, get gold, turbine points, skirmish marks, reputation, etc to help build up a character to test.

ThePinion’s post on this gives instructions on where to go and what to do so read the post on how you can prep a higher level character and test some of the new dungeons or skirmishes!

Character Copy Available

For those who were waiting for a character wipe on Bullroarer so you can copy over your high level characters, the wipe has happened! You are once again able to copy up to 5 characters to Bullroarer for testing purposes.

Tip that the copy will generally fail if you have a character already on your account with the same name. You may want to delete that character before attempting to copy your live character over.

    This is wonderful. I always hated this.

    Any visibility on the crafted lvl 65 first age weapons? Inquiring minds want to know.
