NaktiesKarys was the most active, all other toons received things by mail, used/deposited…and waited untill next mail.
And NaktiesKarys initially killed giants and serpents (gilberths?) in Enedwaith. Then, Kinship form raid – if I remember correctly, Barad Guldur. Then, it began. We had some challenges, like “kill A and B with 10 seconds pause maximum”, “kill C and 10 of his bodyguards”. Entered a room with a mob, then somehow I was one-shotted. Someone entered room too early. We returned. Tactic was over-complicated. Fight main boss, but don’t nuke it too soon, because we need his guards. And boss gave “an eye” – a symbol that player was about to explode. Folks told me I got an eye several times, exploded…and of course, killed other players.
It was a turmoil: we were running, monster was running, our attacks flashed the room, 25% of space was behgind raid participant nicks, I had to look at boss’ health, my own health and power + fervour and to see which powerfull attacks were active. We failed almost each time and finally raid was over. I was very dissatisfied with these fails, some of them were only “thanks” to me. Disappointed. Lost. Angry on myself. It was 23:00 Lithuanian time, I told “Grumpy Nak logging off”…when kinnies asked to stay. One finall skirmish, they told, let us end the day in victory. I was reluctant, but agreed on one condition: skirmish should not take more than 30 minutes.
We took “Way of Smiths” and then it was kind of quick. Monsters appeared, our group smashed them and waited for another wave. One time I stood to oppose a group of mobs without any support:was killed quickly. Lucky, our Minstrels (the best class!) resurrected and I could continue fight. I used all my favourite devastating AoE attacks, trying to do as much damage as possible. Looks like it worked, we slew every enemy…and finally, rewards. Loot was 1 Flawed symbol, 1 Eorlingas crystal and some relics. Now I have 3 Eorlingas crystals, ready to use on Eorlingas 1st Age weapon, when Turbine introduces it.
I also got help from one kinnie, a Champion. He greatly helped me with my setup while others adviced about Legendary items. Got quality armour from yet other Kinnie. This Kinship is just great sand active, more active than I could imagine. Sometimes raids are organized just to equip me, sometimes just for fun…but almost every day we have a marathon of raids.
And so the day has ended, I had 4070 Turbine points (somehow 20 TPs earned). Thanks to Turbine’s sales policy, I have nowhere to spend and am more than ready to purchase new content when it shows up. Life was very good and promising in Lotro.
