One of the big talking points about Update 6 was the new story. Everyone was crazy about the dream and how cool it was but not very many people tried to figure out what the dream meant. I went looking through LotRO’s forums and came across the predictions that Galadriel made back in Vol 2.
(read link before reading on)
It turns out that each class had a different prediction with a different message from Galadriel. Each one points to a major event either in LotRO or in LotR. This leads me to wonder if each class will have a different path when the climax hits LotRO. Will the first choise we made way back before level one lead to a different path and even outcome of the story? If we all will have the same path then why did Galadriel make our predictions different?
Also if each class had the same story then how will all these predictions come true? Several of the events talked about in the predictions happen within hours of eachother across a landmass that would take several days to cross. The only way for Turbine to tell all the stories at the same time and to keep it realistic is to have the players class decide where they go.
The only problem with the idea of each class going to a different area is that Turbine has never done that before. Your class has never really influenced the story until the interpretations. The only way I can see this working out though is if each class has a different path. It is the only way that will make sence for time accuracy and why else would they go to the trouble of having different dreams for different classes?
If Turbine does create a different story for each class it would be great. Right now the only real difference between classes is the way they fight but if Turbine created a special story designed with your class in mind it would make the epic story they are telling even better by adding depth and meaning to the class players chose.
What do you think? Will Turbine make a story just for your class? Do you even want one?
