Update 5: Armies of Isengard Release Notes - Bullroarer Only (B1)
The following release notes apply only to the Bullroarer Test Server. All changes and updates listed are subject to change before being released to the live servers. These release notes should be considered incomplete and subject to change at any time.
Please note: Bullroarer release notes are provided in English only. The final live release notes will be provided in English, German, and French.
Of Special Note
Isengard Instances are here!
Five new instances have been added, rounding out the challenges of the Rise of Isengard Expansion. These instances are free to all players who purchased the Rise of Isengard Expansion. If you have not purchased the expansion pack, these instances will also be available a la carte in the LOTRO Store.
The Epic Story Continues
The time has come for you to part ways with the Grey Company. Update Five will see the Rangers continue with their mission while steering clear of the coming war for as long as possible. You, however, will be taking on the tasks set forth in, Volume III, Book 5: ‘The Prince of Rohan.’
Instance Finder is a new tool that will help players form and fill Fellowships to tackle the various instances, raids and skirmishes found throughout Middle-earth. With Update 5 the first phase of the Instance finder will be available to players. This initial implementation does have some limitations and restrictions. We’ll be improving the system in future updates and look forward to hearing your feedback and input on ways to make Instance Finder better. We’ll also be releasing a developer diary in the near future that explains the tool as it will ship with Update 5 and outlines our development goals for the system going forward.
Currently, Instance Finder allows you to set the following options:
•Content: Skirmishes, Isengard Instances, and/or Scaled Instances
•Scale: Solo, 2-man, 3-man, and/or 6-man
•Difficulty: Tier I, II, and/or III difficulty
•Role: Defence, DPS, Healer, Support
Once a player or partial group places themselves in queue, the system will intelligently match them with other players for a random instance within their selected parameters. Once a match is found, the system will notify the player who can then accept the match and travel immediately to the instance. In addition, while using the Instance Finder, players can take advantage of additional bonuses and rewards!
Track Nearby Quests
A new option has been added to the Quest Tracker and the Radar called “Track Nearby Quests.”
Track Nearby Quests works by finding up to five quests in your quest log with nearby objectives, and attempting to add them to the Quest Tracker. Only unlocked quests in the quest tracker will be replaced in this way. If all the quests in the tracker are locked, you will receive an error message.
•Additional notes:•Track Nearby Quests doesn't work when you are within an interior location (a dungeon) or an encounter. The options are hidden in this case. If you trigger Track Nearby Quests via an input action while in a dungeon, you'll get an error message.
•Track Nearby Quests only looks for nearby quests, not for deeds.
Unified Currency - Skirmish, Classic and Instance reward systems
All the various marks and tokens that appear in Skirmishes and Classic Instances are being collapsed into three new currencies; Marks, Medallions and Seals. These three currencies will also be used in the new Isengard instance cluster, as well as future instances.
In practice, this should change little about how Skirmishes, Classic Instances and Instance Clusters are played. Enter an instance, collect currency for beating bosses and taking control points, than spend it at barter vendors. The big change is that now all instances share three main currencies, instead of a wide variety of special marks. This will greatly simplify things and draw a strong line between the gameplay styles.
What about all my stuff?
When Update 5 launches, all of the various marks will be converted into Marks, Medallions or Seals automatically. Skirmish Marks will become Marks, though acquired Skirmish traits will be unchanged.
To be specific, the following items will disappear from the game and be replaced with some amount of the new currencies:
• Eruilan Campaign Mark
• Adlan Campaign Mark
• Naillan Campaign Mark
• Cannuilan Campaign Mark
• Lefnuilan Campaign Mark
• Enguilan Campaign Mark
• Odothuilan Campaign Mark
• Annúminas Mark
• Eregion Mark
• Helegrod Mark
• Great Barrow Mark
• Inn of the Forsaken Mark
• Halls of Night Mark
• Superior Fourth Mark
• Veteran's Fourth Mark
• Fourth Mark
• Superior Third Mark
• Veteran's Third Mark
• Third Mark
• Veteran's Second Mark
• Second Mark
• Veteran's First Mark
• First Mark
It’s the little things that count

Quests & Deeds
•Carreglyn -- Punishing the Wicked: Previously, if someone spawned the boss fight, but a second player actually tagged and killed the boss, the first player could not complete the quest. The boss now can be respawned.
•Carreglyn -- Munfaeril's Warning: There was a bugged that caused a player to not be able to get their quest rewards upon completion. If two players used the same copy of Munfaeril to complete the wrapper, the second player's events got switched so that they spoke to Munfaeril first and used the shrine second, which broke the rewards screen. Now multiple players can complete their quest off the same copy of Munfaeril (if she is not present, the shrine must still be used to summon her, but completion will happen correctly.)
•There was a further complication with Punishing the Wicked, which caused the boss to remain stuck in NPC mode. This is being resolved by causing the entire encounter to despawn immediately if combat ends (due to player death, Hide in Plain Sight or other combat-ending skill). The detection hotspot also now has a cooldown of three minutes before it resets the encounter.
•The two hostile mobs in Lower Barnavon that were put there due to overwhelming player feedback have been removed due to overwhelming player feedback.
•Starkmoor Quest Completion deed quest count has been brought down a little bit more since the patch to match other Dunland/Gap/Isengard zones better.
•Quests: Book 14, Chapter 6: Laerdan now holds his bow properly.
•Forochel - Quest: “Cold as Death” - Frost-rimmed Braziers can only be used to summon Delucheleg when you have the quest.
•Moria - The Forgotten Treasury - Deeds can now be started by players of level 50 and above (down from 55).
•The three level 75 repeatable quests in Galtrev, “The Defense of Galtrev”, “Glinting in Forgotten Pools” & “The Forges of Isengard”, now give Legendary Item titles, relics and runes as rewards. Also, the quest “The Forges of Isengard” now gives reputation with Theodred's Riders.
