Players have long called for adjustments to Lord of the Rings Online legendary items system. In a new dev blog authored by Turbine's Ken "Graalx2" Burd and Brian "Zombie Columbus" Aloisio, the secret is out that Update 2 will see some significant changes to the system and the relics system. The team will be implementing something called "Legacy Replacement Scrolls" that will help players best match their play style with the legacies that complement them the best.
So, on identify, a Legendary Item will have three Major legacies and will add a Minor Legacy (with a small chance of a Major Legacy) for the first three reforges. We hope that this change will finally give players the control they've always wanted.
You'll notice I said three Major legacies when a Legendary Item is identified. This is because we have standardized the number of legacies to always identify with three legacies. No longer will a player be forced to deal with a two Legacy Second Age item. The other general change is that we have eliminated the two tiers of Item XP heritage runes. From now on, all Heritage runes can be used on any Legendary Item; existing runes are unchanged.
