Lord of the rings online
NaktiesKarys was the only one active, once again. This time I was dedicated to finishing Epic Volume I. Did every single quest, including some evil session plays. Yes, I do dislike them – at the same time yes, Turbine made them doable (unlike “we cannot get out”). One just have to think a bit and study new skills. Book 14 was done so I immersed into book 15, which proved to be the last. I ran throughout the land, from Trollshaws to Evendim, was auto-transported, spoke with prisoners and their interrogators, battled with monsters and their illusions. Result: monsters killed, illusions killed, history of Sauron learned. Poor Amarthiel returned to her Elven form, destroyed one of the Rings, led a force (of me and herself) against Angmar and killed one of ANgmar leaders. Then, she died, at last as hero of thge Free people. Nice story and the end of the first two books.
Then I finished some deeds in Moria instances: nameless slayer (advanced), orc slayer in Forges of Khazad-DUm (adv), Goblin slayer of Khazad Dum (adv). Did not care much about finishing these instances though. Finished Sambrog with lvl.55 kinnie. When meating monsters, I always /mock them, to show who is the boss there – now tought my kinnie to do this. We were victorious and I had much fun in owning monsters.
At the end of the day Kinship organized – following my asking – Stoneheigh tier 2. I needed to finish challenge (kill one mob and within 10 seconds – another one). First 2 times we were un-succesfull. One monster ran away and we could not make it. Also, they do stun which did not help too. Finally, I told we needed Minstrel to nuke them out, one kinnie logged a minstrel, we re-took the instance and were victorious. Yet another victory, another stack of Turbine points and some medaillions. Fighting was spectacular. I saw Hunter raining arrows from far away and many monsters did not make it to us – they just fell on the ground. I saw nukes – pillars of white light – by Minstrel. I saw impressive heals of Minstrel, impressive hits by Captain…and not so impressibe AoE of my own.
And so the day has ended. I had 4200 Turbine points. I had much much fun in my active Kinship – could not think about creating yet another TP grinding Minstrel. I was more than prepared for Update 13. And I finally see some deeds are more thsan doable if one has will and patience to fight and learn. The day has been excellent in Lotro.
