LOTRO Reporter Episode 152 – The one where Chris almost cries
On this information packed show, we discuss the War Steeds, Goodie Bags, and the addition of Layanor to the team.
What we did in game:
- Did some skirmishes this week
- Did some research on the Halls of Night.
- Still wiping on the Saruman fight
- Ended up spending most of my time completing quests around Stangard.
- Somehow ended up in Limelight Gorge. Ouch
- Some crafting again, trying to get everything ready for Riders of Rohan
- Looked longingly at my LOTRO icon
Dev Diary: Warsteeds
We will have three Warsteed types.
The Light warsteed will be very fast, have low morale, armour, and will be ideal for ranged and support classes.
The medium is the all around steed that also has very good damage skills.
The heavy steed can take and deal a lot of damage, but is very slow and harder to maneuver.
Each war-steed has a unique trait tree that will allow you to customize your mount to fit your specific needs like tanking and dps. .

Did you know?
On September 22 is Blibo and Frodo’s birthday. This starts in Rivendell with Bilbo and thats all I will say. You get a neat reward for doing this and it can only be done once per character. You can never repeat this quest and it is only available for 24 hours.
