And actually right now, unless it's just changed, it's $80 to access the race. It's $40 for the "xpac" with no race and no fun cosmetic extras. The only thing included in the base xpac is the level booster so you can get grinding the faction rep in Mordor right away.Po_gg said:The race is $10, that's the issue: they don't make it available for a few months...Anireth said:No idea about Lotro, but given that so many felt the price of $15 for the Necromancer in D3 was justified (which was only one class, and a bunch of cosmetics), $40 for a whole race where you obviously can play different classes doesn't sound that bad.
$40 is just the "early access" to it, which is stupid, since the expansion was marketed partly by the high elves. Then with launch they turned it nto: no, high elves are not in the bundle, not even in the game till Winter - unless you cough up +$30 to play it right now.
As for the review, it is really good, pretty much summarizes what I think about the expansion Maybe I'd lash out a bit more on the whole Radiance-of-Many-Colours issue, since it's a shame they've brought it back from its well-deserved heap on the junkyard. It was a bullshit concept on raids before (like all similar gear score-esque gates), but unleashing it on the whole open area is just straight-out stupid. Hopefully it will die just as fast as its former version did, or maybe even faster.
Well.....surprised / not surprised but still heartbroken. I hope the future will see a new ME game, but the pessimist in me can't help but think this is the end.
