    Good catch! We wanted to go with the idea of what would have happened if she fell into the darkness of the ring.

    i am summoned! and i take full credit for the "My Chemical Romance Eltariel" it was all me ha ha the power i wield! 

     

    im still here, lurking in the corner, watching whats happening. theres just not been anything worth chiming in on recently. repeated complaints and multiple threads on the same subjects, or repeated questions, the answers to which have been posted by our lord , in a pinned topic for ages now. but i am still watching :)

     

    also this stupid little cookie preferences nonsnense at the bottem of the screen means i cant use the mobile version of the site. that kinda needs fixing guys!

     

    the skin is cool. perhaps not what everyone wanted but its cool looking. and it was implementable without constructing completely new models and animations, which obv is the desired approach.  then theres the "its free" bit. free stuff, yay.

    all in all a bangin top notch update with some solid changes. and the morgul chiefs fixed aswell!

     

    i hammered that question a bit in the chat, about the chiefs, totaly expecting jared to not be able to speak to it. he cant always answer questions depending on the subject, but if its important imo, i will throw it out a few times to make sure he sees it. the chat moves quick. fantastically, it got mentioned, with other bug fixes too. 

     

    and an appearance from MDP aswell, so good show.

     

    as usual, a blinding job by  and i hope we get more community streams from him.

     

     

    *edit*

     

    i realise the thread pinned is from jared, but this thread is from stranger, changes thread, and should be pinned also if you ask me bud.

    A Nazgul elf wouldn't make sense... from a lore perspective. Now a "One Ring," or even "New Ring (as they call it in the game)" does. The rings that control and convert man to wraith doesn't work that way on an elf. Originally Sauron crafted similar rings for the elves and dwarves, the way he later did for man, but failed. The rings made the elf more resistant to his powers (made thrm more powerful)...having the inverse effect of what he expected. In fact i believe that without these rings Galadriel and the white council would not have been able to banish Sauron as they have...and more than once. The Dwarves were already to stubborn and greedy of a race to control (essentially were too ignorant a race lol), but man is easily swayed and seduced "...bingo! Mission accomplished...we'll role with that then.." said Sauron( lol). Well...okay, maybe he didn't say it like that, but I'm sure he had similar thoughts.

    I can appreciate the skin as well, now if only we had one of our Dark Lord Sauron is his more tame form from the flashbacks, I usually stick with the dark Talion look but if we had Sauron, that'd be awesome.

    I still think if I could have any one skin, I'd want the default servant armour for Talion, to remain unaffected by my armour choices. No colour change or anything, just a look that resembles his wraith form, as well as his appearance in the Brightlord mission cutscenes and Blade of Galadriel cutscenes.

    I actually agree with that, I would love a feature where we can decide how we would like our Legendary armour to look after fully upgrading them so we can keep all our skills and still fight I. Style, that way you can recreate Dark Talion's first appearance and maintain all of the skills the fully upgraded armor obtained.

    Agreed. But if it were a skin like Celebrimbors, it wouldn't change regardless of the armour you used. Which means you could use a nazgul mask and not have to see it, since it clashes with the wraith in conquest screens. Since on my brutal, the mask of the undying, armour and rune of vengeance are pretty much staple to a lot of my builds.

    I bounce between the terror armor for curse health, dark equipment for might off poison, sometimes I equip the ringwraith stuff to stick to Talion's character or if I feel like it, I use the elemental happy Outlaw stuff lol, but this is just for when I'm playing around, when I do online sieges I'm usually more situational with my armor sets.

    Solid plan. I just personally feel that the 2-piece set bonus for the Vendetta Gear is arguably one of the best in game and synergises well with the set's bonus damage at low health. The Armour, cloak and rune all give 15% boost to all forms of damage at low health, but the cloak is massively outclassed by the mask of the undying. No FP cost for waters of lorien and spectral dash means a hard counter to vault breakers, whilst allowing you to keep up the 33% damage boost to melee and stealth pretty much constantly. The rune's base secondary effect also means that a single ground drain (one of my favourite and most underrated bilities in game) fully heals you. The armour on the other hand, I just re-rolled until I got the 40% ranged damage resistance. My current build also makes use of the Paineater Epic Sword (a better Sword of Vengeance), the Arcane Dagger with a 33% critical damage boost secondary effect and an Almsgiver Epic Hammer (A better Longbow of Vengeance).

    Lol I scrap all my epics, rares and normals, I got all the pieces of legendary from all tribes so I like to play around with them and since I'm Abit OCD I make sure that the setup compliments the entire set in terms of appearance and my preference else I won't use em, I purposely don't use certain equips so I don't make myself overpowered and the captains have a chance to take me down, even on brutal difficulty if I use a good setup, I feel virtually unstoppable and that can kill the fun Abit lol
