Weekend events and officers

This weekend is the lottery and games night. This will start at around 20:30 Cet on the kin island. The (war)steed race will be themed around the Gaunt-lord-let. It will feature a race from The barrow downns to Stoneheight to the Lost temple where and will start around 21 cet.

This weekend we’ll also welcome a new officer to the group Olaphyra. Longstanding member that is always up to help people.

A few officers have decided for personal reasons or playing a different game or that they can’t be online in lotro (on Evernight) as much as they did before. We’d like to thank them for the time they help us and the kin out. They will remain members and we’d always welcome them back.

At the moment we’re still looking for an officer that could help us out during the daytime and/or weekend...

Wotv and the legendary server

Lots of questions asked, but also lots of questions unanswered still. We’ve settled on creating a “creep” like kin for our kinnies that would like to play with each other on the Legendary server. Kinnies are curious, but also noone has really committed to the server full time. The current officer team is on Evernight and will focus on there. Events will remain to be run on schedule as it’s now.

Launch plan Thursday to weekend
Bearlee will start a kin with (currently) the same name.
Everyone is free to join the kin
Officer/invite position open for all (current members)
Play, quest together with kinnies
All resources available such as website and teamspeak to non-EN kinnies

Unified/everlasting hope
Our allies are also playing on the server with a small detachment...

Extra beta rounds for U23 (no launch week 40)

Seems SSG understands they chewed off a bit too much with this update. The content seems to ready, but the additional mastery/scaling revamp on top was too much. While you can live with a quest being broken, everyones dps isn’t. So ..
U23 won’t launch next week And more (2 a week?) beta builds are planned. Also layed out their objectives a bit. 
  • Easier to survive in an area (main stats will give you enough dps and morale to progress)
  • Harder to get the maximum dps (damage bonus 0 – 100 % is free, 100-150% is easily gotten, 150-200% you need to neglect morale or defense)

Squirles conjecture
If done correctly, you can actually use more skills and playstyles within landscape and instances...
