Ten-Ton Hammer Preview in for Mirkwood

So the good news is there are some cool screen shots, the bad news it is it essentially the same information as Massively reported.  There’s a lot of focus on the new area, the instances, and skirmishes (all of which are very exciting to me) but I’m still a little concerned that one of the other key pieces of this expansion is missing – character development.  We’ve seen nothing in any of the reviews, diaries, or blogs regarding the traits, skills, etc. that are mentioned (please correct me if I’m wrong).  Hopefully they’re still balancing things out and just haven’t finalized things, as I’d hate to see 5 more levels added without our characters advancing in any meaningful way.

Here’s the link to the article – Ten Ton Hammer.

  1. Yes, you’re right. I’d like there to be more scope for character development in LoTRO generally. To a certain extent we can tweak them using traits etc but I would like even more opportunity to be able to specialise within our classes as we see fit. And to scale up traits more as we level.

  2. I was really optimistic with Moria that we’d have all sorts of options, but sadly many are just worthless. When they teased with all the news on character development with skills and traits for Mirkwood, I was hoping for something along the legendary item changes for traits. But sadly I don’t think it made the cut – here’s hoping for Volume 3 🙂
