If you are wondering why the forums look different, our host moved us to a new server, which broke everything. I've managed to restore nearly all of our older functionality, but our old theme is not supported in the new version of the forum software.

Please let me know if you are having any further issues.

Thanks,

It's a great find Endingwen, and I would add the stat caps for U21:

Quests / U21: The Allegiance System
« Last post by Orophor on September 05, 2017, 10:33:13 AM »
So one of the new features of the Mordor expansion is Allegiance. It is a bit like reputation, but has four different factions and each faction has a set of story-based quests that unfold over the course of their thirty allegiance levels. You can eventually max out all four groups, however, the order you select decides the speed with which you advance. For example if I join the elves of Lothlorien first, I get a large bonus and move up the ranks quickly, and if I save dwarves for last, I will get no bonus allegiance when I turn in Relics of the Last Alliance to them.

You get relics by completing questing and deeds in Mordor, crafting them, and once you are level 115 and have done all the Mordor quests, daily excursions to Mordor dungeons.

You can learn more about allegiance at the Bearded Minstrel Blog here:

There is a fine blog called the bearded minstrel that has very detailed maps of Mordor from in game. It reminds me a bit of the old Brasse maps. Here's a link:

Items / Online Essence Gear Calculator
« Last post by Orophor on July 29, 2017, 09:46:35 PM »
While looking through the official LotRO forums, I came across a post by CaerArianrhod explaining his new site, the Online Essence Calculator. It's handier than some of the alternatives, because there is no spreadsheet to download and no quirks of excel vs open office calc vs libre office calc, vs iwork numbers.

Check it out if you are like me and somewhat puzzled on how exactly you should customize your gear with essences.

Massivelyop.com's Justin Olivetti posted an article summarizing the developer livestream that gave an early look at Mordor. Highlights are five new regions, level cap to 115, virtue cap to 20, and the high elf race. There is a lot to look forward to in this expansion.
