Lord of the Rings Online Content Released, Q&A

Turbine announces that Book 9: Shores of Evendim, the first free update for The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar is now live, offering a new landscape region, over 100 additional quests, the battle for Helegrod raid, nine new monsters, and other enhancements. There is a Q&A on MGOD discussing the new content with Jeffrey Steefel and Adam Mersky: "Well again, one of the other things that is a big goal for us is just adding content. Making sure it is good is cool too, but it needs to feel new and fresh. So everywhere that becomes a new region in the world, it feels unlike other places you've been. So when people walk into Evendim, they are going to walk into an environment where there is a giant lake surrounded by completely different types of trees, and landscapes that you might find around a lake. They are going to see ancient Arnorian architecture, all sort of aggregated together, in a way they've never seen it before. Just the whole backwoods and bramble and the way the ground looks, and the creatures they are going to encounter; there are nine new monsters in the game, and a number of them are in Evendim, and a couple of them have very specific AI created for them for Evendim, where monsters are behaving in ways players have never seen before."

LOTRO is a good, solid MMORPOG but without a true end game there is no point in playing for more than two months. The quest centric nature of the xp grind is also extremely annoying and makes forming groups needlessly difficulty. This update though nice, is just isn't enough to bring me back.
