Lore-Master changes on the way and some blog news.

19 Oct

Hello everyone.

Recently i was blessed with the gift of fatherhood, with two gorgeous baby girls. That’s the biggest reason for the slowdown on blog posts. And it has been worth every second. 🙂

Altough my posting time has been lowered, i still try to be on top of Lore-master (and Lotro) related news.

Yesterday, there was a very interesting post at the oficial LOTRO forums, by Sapience, when someone asked about the next patch contents:

Funny you should ask! There are a lot of great changes coming for the LM in the next update. Graalx2 and I were just discussing the dev diary this morning in fact. You’re going to have to wait a little bit to read it, but we both think LM’s are going to be really happy with the changes (and new skills!).

So now you know two things due in the next patch. Vault updates (you should see the Developer Diary for that on Thursday) and Lore-master changes (Dev Diary probably a couple weeks from now). I’ll even throw you a bone and let you know Rune-keepers will get some attention this update as well.

So, seems like the Lore-master is next in line after the last patch updates to the Hunter and Captain classes. There where already a few tidbits of information flowing out from the devs. This is what’s already planned:

– The diferent Lore-master pet appearances will be changed to a skill. So no more using necklaces for that appearance you love so much.

– Blinding Flash will have an interrupt component to the skill. So even if a creature is immune to mezzing (Bosses, for example) they can still be interrupted. But there is a catch: The regular Blinding Flash immunities will apply, meaning that the Dead and Creatures of Nature will still be immune to the interrupt.

– New pet food. I was digging around the Lorebook and found these little items: Cut of Lean Meat, Handful of Hearty Seeds and Bowl of Fresh Water. I would guess that they will work just like the Honey and Oats work on the Bear pet.

Let’s wait on the Dev Diary in a couple of weeks.

    Hi there!

    First out, congratulations with the young ones! 🙂 I’m sure your lives have been turned upside down, but in a good way. 🙂

    Thanks for the news and for keeping the rest of us updated.

    It’s very nice they will add an interrupt portion to Blinding Flash, so that it can be used to interrupt mobs with high resistance to mezz or mezz immunity (Like so many of the mobs in the recent raids, and who also do annoying self buffs that can be interrupted.).

    Also, who can dislike more personalization on the pets. I remember the spotted lynx for example was adorable. 😀

    Is there any confirmation that the LM and burg debuffs now work as they should after the f2p update?

    Thanks in advance.

      Yes, the debuff bug that affected skills like Fire-Lore, Wind-lore and the Burglar’s skill Disable has been fixed, as far as i know. At least in the Turbine servers.

    You’ve made some good points there. I checked on the net for additional information about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this website.
