So it figured Turbine starts to really pump things out while I’m totally bogged down with work and I’m not real sure this week will be much better for me.  This is going to be a bit of a re-cap from last week and then I’ll have another post out that goes into a little more detail on my thoughts for the Volume 3 Book 2 updates including the free to play news.

I wasn’t around all that much last week in-game but did get some work done with my Captain as he’s now 63 and moving to the central outpost in Mirkwood.  I also had a rough go in SG on my Minstrel so that was a tad on the frustrating side.  It was just one of those PUGs that was just missing some key points like agro control 😉

There’s another Tell the Community Team thread up on the forums for the Champion class.  I know very little about champs other then bad ones are INCREDIBLY frustrating so I don’t plan on posting but for those of you that do have champs I’d highly suggest checking out the discussion.  It does appear like we may be in for another round of class updates so speak up if you have suggestions or comments.

A couple of very cool updates on the upcoming changes from both Massively and TenTonHammer which sheds some light on what’s coming down the pipe.  I still haven’t quite digested it yet, so I’ll just share the links:

With all the news floating around, there has been some confusion so Sapience was nice to post some corrections which was also picked up by the CStM folks.

Finally I did find a pretty cool link on the forums for those of you who don’t like Windows 🙂  On the main boards there’s a detailed walkthrough of how to run LOTRO on Linux and also a Mac.

I’ll have another post up on some podcast news as well as some more in-depth on the upcoming changes when I get a chance to dig in on this stuff.
