Today a new beta build was launched on Bullroarer, and as with previous builds, the first thing I do is checking in with the Lotro store to see if things regarding the war-steed colour packages have been fixed. This time it was good news! The colour packages finally work properly. There was another addition to the Lotro store that got me very interested: two new sets of war-steed cosmetics. A Heavy Set of the Entwash and a Heavy Set of […]
Now that the NDA has been officially lifted from the Riders of Rohan Beta, it is safe for me to share some impressions with you! First off, I would like to emphasize that the decision by Turbine to delay the release date has been a very good one. One that is supported by the vast majority of Beta players. The Riders of Rohan expansion brings us a completely new battle system: Mounted Combat. Though already in a very advanced state […]
The latest Lotro Update 7.2 brought us some curious new items. As they are cosmetics-related, a newsflash on my blog seems appropriate*. MORIA COSMETICS The Cosmetics vendor at the Skirmish Camp now sells “Moria” cosmetics, but if you, like myself, were hoping for the high level Moria and Watcher stuff, you will be disappointed.

These cosmetics and mount are slightly more ornate than the 4-year loyalty cosmetics.

I guess the best cosmetic news for myself (and I believe many others) is that all raid gear from the Rift will be available at the Cosmetics vendor. Just like the Annuminas and the Helegrod sets, they will cost 547 marks and 33 medals per piece. […]
I am not a big PvMP player, but I am always infinitely curious about new armour appearances and cosmetics. So here, a preview of the new PvMP armour sets that will come with Update 6. Each set comes in three different stat versions (but don’t ask me about that!) and cost a lot of commendations (2500~6000 commendations per piece). Here is how you will look in the Moors:
