So MMORPG.com had a chance to interview both Jeffrey Steefel and Aaron Campbell on the upcoming Siege of Mirkwood expansion. I was pretty excited when I read the first 2 sentences regarding the interview and who was in it – but sadly this is a total fluff interview. There’s absolutely nothing new and they’re still focusing on the same topics as before – Skirmishes, raids, combat, and legendaries. The level cap isn’t mentioned at all nor anything on what new traits, skills, etc we’ll get with Mirkwood.
I don’t know which is more frustrating, Turbine not talking about this HUGE aspect of the game, or websites with interview opportunities not asking these questions. I understand that Turbine might not want to talk about it, but at least in your article mention that there were certain ground-rules or something to the effect that you’re just not trying to spit out the same information we’ve seen countless times.
Here’s the article link – if you wish to read it.
