Lord of the rings online
The day started kind of optimistally: I was in Rivendell, ready to find quest places in Moria, mine any Ancient Silver (for kinship Jeweller), Ancient Iron (for me to make Elf Steel) and all Khazad copper/tin (especially Tin – for my own advancement), do all quests I could do.
Went to Moria quickly, tagged some easier quests – and rode on my Goat…only to find I was unable to locate any quest enemy. Kill dragonets – nice sounding, but I saw no dragonets; destroy nests – but I saw no nests and quest tracker did not help. Map was more of harm than of help.
And when I asked in Kinship chat for help I received silence. I was left alone without clue. Regional chats were all dead: nobody talked here. I felt angry and left Moria. When I was on my road to leaving somebody asked if anyone needed help. I kept my silence: I was dissapointed in Moria.
Make no mistake: at first glance Moria offers all that player can dream of. Huge spaces, lots of enemies to kill, even 900 TPs to achieve, Legendary items to loot, tons of ore to mine, lots of quests to make and instances to do. However, developers made Moria a maze that only few chosen can understand. You are in quest area and see no monster, you are in quest area but if you want to go to another corner you have no clue if it is reachable at all.
I left Moria, went with my own metals to Rivendell, crafted. Thought about helping one player, but he had to go – so I just stood in Rivendell and talked to one new player about armour and weapons.
I do feel disappointed. Saw some from our Kinship in Moria – and forbade myself to ask for help. Asked some questions – and did nothing. I’m just at the point when the fun ended: I have nothing to do. All less grindy deeds done, all that remains are grindy deeds or impossible instances.
Feeling lost. Nowhere to go, nothing more to do.
