But the woes aren’t over yet. Today’s Update 21.2.1 mistakenly nerfed the problematic gear, which hasn’t done much to bolster studio-player relations. “Why, SSG, why?” one player posted. “How can you keep messing up like this?”
Another hotfix for the gear should arrive this weekend, but in the meanwhile SSG is gifting players with 50 mithril coins to anyone who logs in to claim them. These coins can be used for a variety of in-game services and cosmetic gear.
Meanwhile, LOTRO’s Harvest Festival started on October 10th and will continue through November 1st. Players can bob for apples, trick NPCs to use emotes on them, and explore Bilbo’s famous Haunted Burrow during this time.
