LOTRO Update 8.1 Patch Notes
Sapience posted them this morning for our reading pleasure while we wait for the servers to re-open. This update is primarily bug fixes, but a few things do stand out:
- I’m not sure how big a change the open tapping on is, but apparently they’re reverting to all folks in the fellowship getting credit no matter what they do or do not do. Apparently this whole contribution thing is more complicated then they originally thought and it is causing them fits. I believe the system remains unchanged besides this, but I will update if that isn’t the case.
- Various class tweaks and fixes.
- You can now use quest items and crafting nodes while mounted on your War-Steed!!
- Hythbold Armour can now be placed into shared storage for trading with your alts.
However, it does not appear that any of the “bugged” Hythbold dailies (I believe at least 2 are currently unstable) nor the client crashing issues (when logging off) have been addressed. Also not addressed is the 6th bag which was one of the touted features of the expansion and I’m sure something that would bring them a few dollars. And finally, the Gondamon skirmish remains closed
Personally, I’m a little under-whelmed as this seems more in line with what they’d do for something like 8.03.
