Lord of the rings online
NaktiesKarys spent his time in Helm’s Deep region, travelling from town to town. Witnessed one session play, but fortunately I managed to win. The region continues to fascinate me. The trails of Orcish assaults are everywhere: outposts burned, cities ready to be evacuated and treachery everywhere. Grima finally deposed, but I once again witnessed him. Alas, could not smash Grima, only his bodyguards. Went to one little town where lots of bad things were happening: leader was ill, his advisor wanting to ally with Saruman and an ore mine owner wanting to establish his own law, eventually one of leader’s advisors abandoning him and hiring/recketeering. The choice for leader was a hard one: recketeer or Saruman’s pet? He has chosen the first. Of course, everybody forgot local soothsayer’s prophecy that unseen enemy will burn the town before it could be saved: everyone was thinking about “the seat of power”.
These quest lines made my reputation with the Helmingas – a difficult one, since they mostly rely on task items. And their task items do not drop as frequently as Eorlingas…and I am almost Kindred with Eorlingas. This reputation builds up really fast.
Met first fellowship content: an orc with some 100.000 hp. I tried to kill it, but to no result. Fled, being healed by some good-heartet player (God, give her all the fortunes You can!). Asked in Kinship chat for help, hope it will come. While I could deal with some 50.000 – I could not be that overpowered. And I do not have The Green Bubble, all thanks to trait trees…
Have found one Emeral shard. WIll continue to harvest Eorlingas skarn, only to have standard 100 low skarn ingots, 100 medium skarn ingots and 100 high grade skarn ingots. That’s a lot of things, so maybe would loot an extra shard or two.
I have finally reached level 95! Yes, I am a tank now, just have to grind for quality armour (mine is not that good now). After making first age LI, I would be more than ready for Big Battles and other end-game content.
And so the day has ended. Managed to finish several deeds, got 57 Turbine points, achieved end-game and had lots of fun. Life is just superb in Lotro.
