Update 10 Currency Reset
Lord of the Rings OnlineOnce again Contains Moderate Peril has come up with some news for me on LOTRO and Update 10.
The short of the matter is that Seals will be converted to Medallions at a ratio of 1:20 upon launch so that they don't have to inflate the prices of the new raid armour to stupid levels.
Is it just me or should Turbine have stuck to armour gems dropping off raid bosses?
More details can be found HERE

I think there both as effective as each other. Armour gems feel less grindy as you have a 1 in 12 chance of rolling the highest, 12 runs in raid groups means you'll have the set.
Marks, Medallions and Seals are indeed easier to get as you don't have to run the raid to acquire them, but it can take longer depending on the amount of marks received per instance.
It'd take some math but I am sure it would end up being the same. Raid gems are also Bound to account (they weren't before but are now) so they also seem less grindy. It also makes sure that people are actually doing the raid and that raid armour is exclusive to those who have completed it but not bound to one character who might not be your main. In this instance I prefer gems, because it makes people take part in raids. But I can see why the other way is preferred by others.

I prefer the old raid armour gems drops (ala Rift style) BUT the easy solution is, make seals ONLY available in Raids and I mean raids, not skirmish raids.
Everything else in the game can be bought with marks and medallions.

The raid gem system will no longer work due to the loot changes that have been introduced into the game. Remember that EVERYONE gets their own loot from chests now. If everyone got an armour gem then after one full run of the raid no-one would do it again.

Going offline for a bit to deal with the real world just incase anyone wonders why I'm not playing the new SWTOR expansion tomorrow. So please no story spoilers until I get a chance to play. Wink
