Bullroarer and Book 7 Patch Notes

Saturday, February 28, 2009

A new public test server has been announced, Bullroarer. The greatest part of this news is that Book 7 is available on this server. And anybody can join so long as they have an active LOTRO subscription. The test server takes one of the live servers and copies it over. Incidentally, this time is Elendilmir, which means Jaxom is now copied on Bullroarer and theoretcially I could test Book 7. I'm debating if I want to do that at the moment. On one hand, it would be a great opportunity for this blog. On the other, one of the things I learned in the beta of LOTRO as a whole was that after experiencing the same content over and over again, particularly at the lower levels, I was somewhat burned on it come release. Now, the testing cycle for Book 7 will presumably be much shorter than the LOTR beta but there's still a little bit of that burning potential.

In the meantime, this is a busy day. The preliminary Book 7 patch notes have been released. They are extensive and it will take me some time to sift through them all. Furthermore, they're subject to change based on the experiences on Bullroarer. I'll have a series of posts over the next couple of days giving my take on the patch based on the notes. Any differences I'll compare in-game when I choose to experience Book 7, either on Bullroarer or live. Still they are worth a reaction from what I've read over at MMEOW.
