@stephen09181981 End game in LOTRO just changed because of a level cap increase so obviously there's going to be less raids now. Before RoI there was lots of end game content. You have to allow time for Turbine to make more level 75 raids. There is a new raid cluster coming this month and I'm sure more are in the oven for 2012. I've been happy to grind skirmish raids because they gave us good rewards for doing them. It's enough to hold us over until Update 5. I'll still be doing Draigoch though because of the good loot. (Still need scales for the cloak.)

@stephen09181981 It hasn't even been 3 months since RoI launched. What big name MMO puts out major content updates in under a 3 month cycle?

Well Lotro is declining.

@smartstep Alright, let's take this step by step: there's a quest where you're betrayed by the clan you previously helped stand up against Saruman. The clan decides Saruman offers better job benefits. They capture you. You end up in the dungeons under Orthanc, having to perform menial tasks for the uruk-hai overseers. Finally you manage to make a daring escape. All this = LotRO is declining. Yeah. Yeah, I can see it now. You're right. How silly I never saw that!

@smartstep

I don't deny that aspects of LoTRO are declining, but certainly not the central storyline and quest content. That's been (for me at least) the bright spot of this whole expansion.

Personally i loved the lack of conflict after chasing down the Falcon clan leaders. They were right, this was their home turf, they outnumbered the rangers drastically, and they knew the rangers were eager to keep moving south.
Part of the reason i love LOTR is its low magic feel. This isn't WoW, we're not supposed to crush a different god each expansion. We're just folks trying to do some good and help out some of the real powers in the world.
Granted, LOTRO doesn't always stick to that as well as i'd like, but such is the case with any level based game. At least they throw in little story moments (like the Falcon clan confrontation) that remind us of our place in Tolkien's world.

could you reach max level by just doing the epic quests?

@(Unverified) Not without plenty of grinding in between.

Is the price of RoI still $30 stand-alone? I thought digital distribution was going to bring prices *down* with no physical product to manufacture but RoI still seems pricey for an expansion since it is in addition to monthly subscription fees or pay-as-you-go points fees.
