Listen up maggots, and listen good. You’d best learn the truth about the Battle of Five Armies if you think you’re ever to survive this war! In the old days, before the Eye came, the wretched worm Smaug was done to death by the coward Bard of Lake-town. Smaug’d been holed up in the dwarf-halls of the Lonely Mountain for ages and ages, sitting pretty in the dark and counting his coins. Those coins and jools rightfully belonged to the Goblins of Gundabad! Those cowardly snaga, Men and Elves and Dwarves, all set out to get their grubby little hands on the loot quick as you please when they heard of old Smaug’s death. But they had another thing coming, oh yes! Bolg of the North led a host of our fathers and fathers’ fathers, and a pack of wild wargs too, down from Mount Gundabad to learn them good and proper. We’d be rolling in riches today, if it hadn’t been for a flock of great filthy eagles. Wicked Men, cruel Elves, and nasty Dwarves can’t never be counted on to fight fair anyhow. They’re nowt but tricksters and cowards, you just see if I ain’t right. Garn!

Well I was pretty surprised we’re getting Update 7 as quickly as we are, but it does seem like Turbine is ramping up their release schedule and pushing out better quality stuff over to Bullroarer.  Today’s downtime brings us Update 7 and the Patch Notes have hit the Lorebook.  For me personally this isn’t a huge update, but I like many of the things they’re doing.  The big areas of the patch are:
