Lord of the rings online
NaktiesKarys is having fun in Eregion. Mining metal ore is a very simple matter, only in rare cases do I have to fight – and there is plenty of ore, second voyage to Rivendell is inevitable.
Quests were just good. ost of them were – “kill NN monsters”, but this constant “go and kill” lets me advance deeds and earn rewards in cash for doing so while having fun. One quest involved killing Half-orc Wolf-breeders (breeder + wolf)…and then I noticed another NPC in captivity.
Of course, it was a quest to free and guard him. Of course, NPC moved as slowly and irrationally as all NPs do. But I managed to protect him, sometimes against 3 monsters and only one time did I use Second Wind skill. NPC was free, I got experience and some rewards.
Had 3 quests fight named monsters: one Worm, one Orc, one Half-Orc. Everyone with >4000 hp, Half-Orc with his own guard. Some were too proud to appear: they had to be summoned with special Horn. All were killed leaving me very satisfied with lvl.50 Champion. Other quests included collecting Elven statues, destroying Worm eggs.
I do like Eregion. In terms of Turbine points it is a complete loss (695 paid while 165 in return with solo deeds) – in terms of fun it is just great. I could compare it to Evendim only. Eregion guides you from one hub to another, there are enough resources everywhere (and a pity, no craft facilities or vaults).
And so the day has ended, I had great fun and left very satisfied. Looking for new adventures today, for new monsters to slay, new resources to gather and new hundreds of ore to mine.
