WarCry: Samuraise_Gamgee: I loved the Screenshot and Cloak contests, will you offer more things like this, for example, contests to supply the loading splash screen for the game, etc... It would be wonderful for this to change more often and include the community.. :)
LOTRO_Saffron: WE love those contests as well and we're happy to tell you that there will be a loading screen contest coming up in a few weeks.
WarCry: Frieden: Are there any plans to modify the upkeep/foreclosure systems for player housing in the future? There seems to be a lot of negative backlash regarding foreclosures and losses of storage items.
Keth_Turbine: Yep, we are planning on increasing the escrow time, so items from your house will stick around longer after you lose ownership of your house.
Keth_Turbine: Unfortunately I don't have how much longer they will stick around, but it'll hopefully address some of the problems.
WarCry: Halgron: for the great angmar revamp, will you be changing the whole way angmar looks? or just the quests and rewards?
Scenario: The primary goal for our Angmar revisions was to focus effort on polishing the region both in terms of content and landscape design. With the exception of a few minor tweaks and a lot of bug fixing, there are not broad changes to the visuals of Angmar.
WarCry: Flandamier: Will there ever be mailboxes in the crafting area's like in Bree?
Scenario: Many of our crafting areas already have mailboxes either at or nearby them. We do our best to catch things like this, but sometimes we miss it. For those oversights, they'll be handled via our normal task and bug processes (but I can't assign any specific ETAs at this time).
WarCry: orich: Will there be tailor recipes to make the new "casual wear"?
TensLOTRO: Yes there will be.
TensLOTRO: You will be able to find new tailoring recipes from loot, the reputation system, and through other content.
WarCry: Kreshnek: Hiya there! Just wondering if the barter items for the new PVP armour will drop from the Chest's of the First Marshal etc., and will they be dyeable?
Keth_Turbine: The barters items will only be available in the Delving of Frór, and once you have the armor, you'll be happy to find that it is dyeable.
WarCry: Heronin: Hey, loving Book 12! Question: Will Armorers ever be able to repair equipment?
Keth_Turbine: Nope, we don't have any plans for that right now. If you are looking to repair in the field, there are some repair anvil recipes available from a couple of the Reputation Factions. Or Guardians can help you out if you are near a camp site.
WarCry: thy_dungeonman: any plans to give guardians an option in heavy crafted sheilds, besides an elven style sheld?
TensLOTRO: Sure! We'll look into it.
WarCry: Perdiccas: will maps and hunter ports be diabled in the Delving of Fror?
TensLOTRO: This is a known issue that we're currently looking into.
TensLOTRO: We might not end up disabling the skill, but we're intent on fixing the "problem".
WarCry: Kreshnek: Are there any plans for kinship houses to show the kinship name as the player houses show the owners name?
Keth_Turbine: Yep! In Book 12, the owner's name or kinship name will appear when you enter the house's yard. You will also see it below your mini-map.
WarCry: dakar: what can we expect, content wise, in the area between the shire and ered luin...and when might one expect to see it?
Scenario: The Tower Hills and Far Downs are locations we would love to get to at some point. However, before we can think about getting there, we have some more pressing places to visit first.
WarCry: Ryswald: Are there are plans on upgrading some of the loot tables in late Carn Dum? At present almost no one goes past Mormoz (2nd floor boss and last class item quest dropping), leaving 3 wonderful encounters unvisited.
Annuvin: Actually, we've revisited a good deal of the instance loot (Great Barrows, Garth Agarwen, Fornost) in book 12.
Annuvin: We plan on revisiting all of the instance loot in the game, to make it more appealing (as there are some
Annuvin: wonderful, challenging encounters that no one has incentive to complete).
WarCry: Wyrmslayer: Please sire, can I have some Rohan?? :)
TensLOTRO: If you don't eat your Eriador, you can't have any Rohan!
WarCry: Well it is time that our devs head off to eat their Eriador and Cake
Keth_Turbine: that and I need to head out for an Urugarth run!
WarCry: We thank them for taking the time to visit with us today and look forward to book 12 hitting live soon
Scenario: Just in time for us to go wipe in Annuminas again!
* Scenario curses Nengon.
LOTRO_Saffron: Do you mean it this time?
Annuvin: If only my stealth cooldown was faster, we could TOTALLY not get owned there. ;)
TurbineMeghan: By the way, everyone, we're having a monster play event on Roheryn on Friday - come play with the devs in the the Ettenmoors! Go here for info: http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.php?t=115511 :)
Annuvin: Oh well.
TensLOTRO: You should suggest that to a dev :P
TurbineMeghan: Thanks for coming, and thanks again to Warcry for hosting us. :)
Annuvin: Night all!
LOTRO_Saffron: Good night! Thanks for coming!
Rhidden: Bye everyone! Thanks Warcry!
WarCry: Thanks all for coming!
TensLOTRO: Good night everyone. Thanks for coming out!
Keth_Turbine: g'night all
Scenario: Good night all! Thanks for sending in your questions - and have fun speculating! (mmm.. Eriador... so good!)
Ringleader: Thanks for comin' - have a great nite!
WarCry: Warning! Chat enabling now
