I would've loved more sliders, (even) more hairstyles and more facial complexion.
It was also disappointing to find out that long hair still clips through the shoulders, especially if you're wearing a cloak (cloaks in LOTRO put two blobs on your shoulders that I refer to as the "shoulder flaps").
If you thought that we are getting shields for Metalsmiths, then you will be disappointed.
There will be shields we can get by playing the new instances. Your first place you found your party members for your venture in the Great Barrows. Now, this will be great to filter out those Eorlingas recipes dropping in Mordor, third age legendary...
I think the other part of it was that I'm very accustomed to my characters' looks after having played them for ten years.
The game automatically 'translates' your characters' old features into the new model and the result isn't always flattering.It usually pays off to fiddle around with the features a bit at the in-game barber to make your character feel right again. My boyfriend, on the other hand, didn't have that much trouble adapted to the new looks at all.He enthusiastically logged all his characters and had them all changed in no time.I get what the developers were going for, but it looks a bit odd.Although I have been critical in this article about some details, I generally feel the character update is a huge upgrade and a great addition to the game for LOTRO players.Problem is I loved that hairstyle so much and the character is dear to me, so I'm a bit sad about not having the old hairstyle anymore. This would be the perfect blog post if I would continue with the male character models. I don't have screenshots of pre-update male human characters, so you'll have to take my word for it, but men also show a definite improvement.
