Hark! Is that a new update for Lord of the Rings Online
on the horizon? It is indeed, my chums. And with any fresh LotRO
patch comes an expected slew of developer diaries.
Today we have two dev diaries to report about for players getting ready for next week's Update 11
. The first talks about the next addition to the epic story, Volume III, Book 10
. The diary discusses the 15-chapter storyline as well as the optional "interlude" Ranger episodes that may be played in sequence or out of order. There's even a funny behind-the-scenes moment when the devs show how badly they messed up an NPC model.
Then there's a diary on what Turbine
is calling "Mounted Combat 2.0
." Sweeping changes are coming to mounted combat with Update 11, including retooling the movement tree into a class-specific one, the addition of more class-specific skills, and a ton of polish and iteration.
Massively will take a deeper look at Update 11 tomorrow, so stay tuned!
