Lord of the rings online
Illusions have a tendency to disappear. And when they disappear, person is left with bitter memories. Same happened to me with Moria. Battle for the entrance was a nice one. First area (“Great Delving”) is an interesting with some unexpected quests, like killing bugs un Dwarf’s bed. Also – stables, some vendor and even one route to another settlement. Quests are all good and soloable, rewards are good too. Enemies are everywhere, so don’t expect to have a joy-ride.
Well, lots of enemies means lots of xp and money. No problem. Moving further – disappointment grows higher. No “free” road, only ones blocked by Goblin settlements with a must to fight through. Then – little outpost, no stables, 2 vendors.
And then quests become a little bit of masochist dream. Find some stuff in this area (dot on the map) – but you just can’t find, can’t figure it out. Kill Dragonetes in that area – but I can’t enter it. Map does not help in most cases, sometimes the only way to get out is to be killed.
I decided to abandon almost all Moria quests and focus on Goblin – Gerbryg – bug slayer quests only. I will kill monsters, harvest ore and sell whatever is not ore, legendary items, legendary xp runes.
Moria, “the best expansion” – yes,the greatest promising…but it fails do deliver almost everything. Rich content, tons of quests – right, it offers, but you almost can’t achieve it. Same thing as someone offered free trip to Imperial Star Destroyer: nice thing, but there is no way to get to Imperial Star Destroyer…
I will focus on crafting. Need some more recipes (failed tro find lvl.15 recipes – weird) and helping newbies. Thanks to you, Angmar and Moria, for taking fun OUT of the game.
