Update 10 Previews

Update 10 testing is still underway on Bullroarer, but for those of you curious about what to expect, I've made two YouTube videos covering the subjests of the Erebor Instances & Armour Sets

The Road to Erebor (Part 2)

In this video I set foot inside the four new instances coming in Update 10 as part two if the "Road to Erebor" instance cluster:

  • The Bells of Dale (6-man)

  • Flight to the Lonely Mountain (12-man)

  • The Fires of Smaug (12-man)

  • The Battle for Erebor (12-man)

Don't worry about spoilers: I don't explore much further than the start of each, just to get a feel for the look of each instance space.

Erebor Armour Sets

In this video I take a look at the new Erebor armour sets coming in Update 10.

Each class gets SIX erebor armour sets - Three sets tied to each traitline, plus 3 more "upgraded" sets based on the original three.

We look at the cosmetics as well as the set bonuses, so if that's your thing, we've covered that too.

New Instance Guide: Seat of the Great Goblin!

Posted by Balthelion in Site Updates

I've added a new instance guide to the website, this time focusing on one of the new instances that arrived in December 2012 with Update 9 - Seat of the Great Goblin.

You can find the new guide under the 3-man instances section of the Guides page.

This instance has level scaling, and can be run from level 20 onwards. You will need to have purchased the Riders of Rohan expansion, or purchase the "Road to Erebor" instances separately in order to play this and the other instances in this cluster.

Sapience has confirmed that the 2012 Yule Festival has been extended by 2 days, to make up for the extended downtime caused by the hotfix just before the Christmas holidays.

The Festival will now end on January 3rd 2013, so use this time wisely to collect extra Festival Tokens!

Posted by Balthelion in Game News

Update 9 will be hitting the live servers on Monday 17th December 2012!

The servers will be offline between 12:00 and 15:00 UK time (GMT) for the update to be applied to the game.

You can ready more about the main features coming to the game in our Update 9 Summary Thread on the forums. Bear in mind that some information in the original post has been outdated by updates posted further along in the thread. And all information in this thread is from the Bullroarer beta server, so is subject to change before launch.

Turbine will of course post office patch notes on Monday during the downtime.
