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...

Update 23, end game loot and lootboxes

For the forum post check, https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?&postid=7866238#post7866238

Or check our write-up over at lotroplayers.

[CC] End game loot, lootbox in U23 and beyond redux

1. There should be no gear in lootboxes that you don’t have a chance to acquire by playing the game. If gear is in a lootbox, it should also appear on a game vendor or as a reward for content within a short period of time.

2. On the day that new content is released, players should not be able to get the brand-new gear with end game currency or Store purchases. The initial rush of gear needs to come from playing the new content and getting rewards for completing it. As such, the vendors for gear and lootboxes will not appear until a few weeks after that content is released...

U23 beta roundup

Regarding way to heal. Outgoing healing will get a slight buff compared to the not really great boost tactical mastery gives.

I’ll probably try to tweak that so that the healing contribution from OH *(outgoing healing) is somewhat better and the contribution for Tac is not quite a good.

Don’t mind tac providing a boost to hps, but I’d prefer that it remain the secondary source, with actual OH rating being the primary source. In terms of OVERALL hps, I don’t really intend any significant change either way. I was figuring it would probably go up a little relative to player vitality at cap, but not much.

So I’ll be taking a look at this.

-Vastin

(unintended) creep boost here to stay?

Overall, all of the changes you’re seeing in PvMP are related to the balance work Vastin is doing, both in Mas...
