Big things happening in Michel Delving in the beta for update 16.2. The area around the bounder’s statue has been turned into a park, with small memorials for each of the current LOTRO servers. Here are some screenshots!
I’ll admit it, I near fell off me pony. I visited the LOTRO beta server Bullroarer this morning, to see if the new episodic quests had been turned on. I didn’t find those, but something else was rather hard to miss: A park surrounding the Bounder’s Bounty statue!
In addition to the scenery change, one interesting thing about the park was small memorials and a plaque for each of the current LOTRO Servers. Although it wasn’t possible to interact with the plaques yet, it looks like they will contain the individual server results from the Bounder’s Bounty event in 2013.
This is likely done in advance of the upcoming server mergers in LOTRO. While this is a rather huge change to the look of Michel Delving, this is also a rather fine way to preserve some memories from the original LOTRO servers. A memorial park, if yer like.
What do yer all think about the park?
