Update 19.3 - February 15, 2017 - Hotfix
Downtime Notice: Wednesday, February 15th 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM Eastern (-5 GMT)
The LOTRO game worlds and web sites will be unavailable due to maintenance from 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM Eastern (-5 GMT). We will also be releasing a hotfix for Update 19.
The hotfix will correct the following issues:
- Reeds in the Dead Marshes have been adjusted so characters can once again reach Artamir for the quest Missing in the Marshes.
- Guardian - Keen Blade specialization - heavy Blows will once again trigger Prey on the Weak heals with increased probability based on the current bleed tier.
- Accounts with a 2 or 5 gold cap will once again receive currently in their overflow. This currency becomes available with a currency cap unlock.
- Players will no longer receive duplicate mail of previously-deleted mail with already-detached currency.
NOTE: While this hotfix does include a fix for the Prey on the Weak issue, the solution re-introduces a bleed critical frequency issue (the fix for the frequency issue caused, through a halo effect, the Prey on the Weak issue.) What this means is that while Guardians expect the bleed critical frequency to match their melee critical chance, the applied bleed only appears when a critical hit triggers a Heavy Blows bleed tier increase. Other Guardian bleed tier increases from other sources do appear to critical properly.
