Garth Argarwen Redesign
Lord of the Rings OnlineSo it would appear that the much loathed GA instance is getting a facelift soon. Orion blogs:

"Today I started the revision to Garth Agarwen. Honestly, the pre-production work that goes on in my head is very hard to quantify because I have been thinking about these changes for a very long time."

Interesting stuff about Radiance further down in the comments

Orion wrote
I will go on record as saying this. It has become clear over the past weeks that the core of the gating issue is tied to the one way and one way only to acquire radiance loot - which is a necessity to participate in new raids. It is a combination of symptoms that combine to form the issue not a single case of “gear gating is stupid and horrible and damn you devs!” No, the core issue, as best as we can surmise, is the combination of hard mode and radiance gear being the method for accessing raids combine to make a pain point that is unacceptable to some portions of the player base. Addressing this issue will likely uncover another layer, but we can only expose that when we rectify the first issue.

So long as any gear was 'good enough' to survive in a raid. I completely agree.

In the followup article posted here.

Orion goes on to say

When you deal with a mass of people all spouting opinions and everyone keeps harping on one point or another it can be very difficult to drill through to the core of the issue. This has been the case with Radiance Gear. At first, it appeared that radiance gating was the only part of the issue because that was the breadth of the complaints. After drilling deeper and reading more and more from folks it became apparent that there were many symptoms to the problem.

1. Radiance gear is now required to enter raids.
2. The only way to acquire radiance gear is to complete hard modes.
3. Hard modes objectives are obtuse.

All good points, all taken to heart and all actively in the pipe for some form of retrofit to address the core issues. No time frame yet. Just and admission that we hear you, we understand you and we are committed to rectifying the issue.

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
