    That reminded me, when I finished act 4 I I saw that I did t finished the dog missions. So I when I played the last mission, that one in the Colosseum, my dark Talion changed to bright Lord Talk. Funny how switched so easily. Not saying it's not hard, but they should at least try.

    Sorry, I never saw an official answer or post from Monolith saying that Cele will be added with blue wraith and voice lines etc etc.

    I'm neutral. I'm thankful for what is added for free in the update.

    I've done a bit of mod magic and merged 4 threads on this subject together, I would ask everyone if you have strong feeling on this either way to just keep to this thread for now because as much as everyone has a right to a say I don't really want everyone to make a new thread on it.

    Derp, now I’m the bad guy because I can’t find the reddit thread. I remember one of the devs saying it was coming but that they have other stuff to work on first. That was a long time ago. By the way, the comment about people complaining about the updates to a game they’ve purchased as being “spoiled and entitled” is nonsense. You’ll notice I said multiple times that I was grateful for the support on the game, but that this one thing disappointed me. The surprise vibes I'm getting aren't very convincing, as people have been talking about this for a long time now, so of course when it isn’t addressed people are obviously going to whine about it lol.

    Yes you did, because you were the person who told me that you saw it, and I actually found the thread because you said you didn’t have the link. It was a long time ago so I don't blame you for not remembering.

    Btw, I want to say thank you for working your magic and turning this into a megathread. It may not be important to some people but we have a right to complain as with anything that costs money, and my reference to an official confirmation from a dev is something I remember seeing but can’t find the link for so I apologize for the confusion in here.

    You know I have a feeling that all this time we are arguing, having heart aches. Monolith is probably trying their very best to not say anything until July 17th update and what you know? we suddenly see the option to choose wraiths or talion/celebrimbor together lol.

    I'm assuming you then mean either this thread https://www.reddit.com/r/shadowofmordor/comments/8962gu/important_free_updates_coming_to_shadow_of_war/ or this post https://community.wbgames.com/t5/Official-Announcements/Important-Free-Updates-Coming-to-Shadow-of-War/m-p/1831034#M762

     

    The only thing I find about skins is this.


     We’ll also be incorporating many other gameplay improvements that will be detailed in future build notes, including Nemesis System updates, new player skins, skill tree additions, gear system upgrades and progression updates, just to name a few that we’re excited about.

    No it wasn’t those. Like I said I don’t have the link, but it could’ve easily been fake. Thanks for trying to find it though. Honestly I’m not even going to get mad about it anymore, it’s just disappointing is all. I’m very happy with the nazgul masks; they look really cool. This is just something I’ve been waiting very patiently for and I was mislead by either a dev or someone posing as a dev.

    I just hope the ring skin is nothing sauron related cause Deramn is right, why the heck would Monolith let us be the dark lord and brand orcs? it's even more weird cause sauron is not even a nazgul Lmao. So my final thoughts for the ring skin is that it is either normal talion with celebrimbor, or...idk lol Monolith is so good at tricking us.  Sauron fair form makes sense especially that his character size was exactly like talions but then again....if in the last battle your celebrimbor...just why is it that hard to add it into the postgame as an option? I am just confused and many people are wondering the same thing. It can't be harder than making baranor with his own animations and movesets.

    Okay I have new speculations, I noticed that the ring logo skin is the exact same logo as the ring you have in your inventory. So this means that this is nothing associated with sauron or any dark skin. This by all means has to be what we all have been waiting for. It is definitely either the activation of ring of power talion or talion and celebrimbor activation. I just noticed this guys and you can see it for yourself skipping through the latest stream on youtube and pausing it. This gives us big hope and the high likelyhood so cross your fingers and hang on tight guys. :)

    It doesn't make sense that Eltariel, Baranor and Serka can dominate orcs, either, but that didn't stop them from making those characters into skins.

    It's just a skin, it doesn't matter if it makes sense or not.

    I've previously mentioned that I think it'll be Annatar (Sauron's fair form), but I'm not sure, honestly.

    well either way the ring logo looks nothing dark to me and I still have hope for it to be associated with blue wraith activation. If not, then all i'm gonna say is we just gotta appreciate what monolith is going to give us with the update. It will be a downer if our request didn't make it but we'll live....hopefully Lol

    I love how because I started the thread(now a megathread), all the people in other threads saying that the people complaining are ungrateful jerks instantly associate that with me😂. I think I’ve been fairly polite about it to be honest. You can find far more rude opinions on Reddit, Twitter, and even in this community. I’m going to enjoy the update no matter what, and look forward to the next game!

    I agree. Very high chance the skin is fair-form Sauron. It could be something completely unexpected but it’s likely to be that.

    You know, if you guys want Celebrimbor back so bad, you could just restart the game. I mean, I know you said that you don't want to because you've worked hard to get where you've got, but if you ask me, it's completely worth it. I've restarted my game several times and not once did I regret it.

    You don't have to worry about losing your favorite followers, because you can just store them in your garrison and they'll be there waiting for you for your next playthrough. Gear? No, that doesn't transfer over, but you can either grind for identical gear from you previous playthrough (rerolling 2ndary perks will make this easier once the July update comes out), or you can make an entirely new gear-build in order to keep things fresh.

    And also, you can get another batch of Legendary scars (the Unashamed, the Machine, etc. ).

    But perhaps the best part about restarting is the fact that you can import multiple Followers and Nemeses from SOM. I've already imported like 4 sets.

    Just a suggestion, though.

    You have no idea how long it takes to 100% complete the game including getting the legendary gears. That's just the worst advice I've ever heard from someone. Please guys no matter what you do, your gonna insanely regret starting a new game. Also we don't know yet if that ring skin is associated with the wraith activation so not any time soon i'll be thinking about restarting my darn playthrough. It is what it focking is, I'm gonna take a break from this community forum cause it just ticks me off whenever it reminds me that the most requested thing isn't gonna be in July 17th update.

     

    HAVE A GOOD ONE! -_-

    Jeez, chill out, I was just trying to help. And as a matter of fact, I DO know how long it takes to 100% the game, because I've done it before, including collecting all 73 pieces of Legendary gear. And as I said in my previous post, I did NOT regret restarting.

    Maybe Jared shows the ring skin this next stream, anyway, we only have to wait two weeks to know the truth!

    Honestly, I'm glad that they didn't give us the option to swap between Bright Lord Talion and Dark Talion. It would be a little... weird. Some of the Uruks are aware of the fact that Celebrimbor is gone and Talion has changed. They acknowledge that. ("You have defied the Dark Lord Sauron, you have raised the dead against his will, blah blah blah... "/"You still like playing with the undead? I've been known to dabble in corpses a bit myself... ")

    And what would they say when you suddenly become the Bright Lord again? It wouldn't make sense.

    This is just my PERSONAL opinion, don't jump all over me, guys.

    Well assuming the whole switch thing is as complicated as they say, I assume at the end of the day, either 1, they could overlook things like dialogue or 2, they would swap back these things too. But hey, y’all think if they *really* see how much we care about this whole thing they would consider devoting a whole update to it and find a way? Wishful thinking maybe, but hey, better than being down in the dumps about it.

    Monolith definitely cares, but understand that not everything we want will make the cut in the game. That's how life is guys, we need to live with less expectations and take whatever will be given. Now that does not mean that " Ohhh life sucks cause i'm not getting what I want' Think about it this way people, be exicted to take what might be even better than what you wanted. There is many ways our desires will fill in the gap because I know for a fact that even though we don't know right now what we would like instead... will eventually come to a point where you be like " wow this so much better than what I specifically wanted."
