Lord of the rings online
The day began when NaktiesKarys rode through the fields of Great River, harvesting every single Skarn node, collecting all the materials he could find, calculating how much more ore is required. Each amount of Skarn ore was to be divided by 4: if I have 40 ore, I would make 20 low-quality calenard ingots and thus – 10 Calenard swords.
Riding – I felt temptation to ride to Eastern Rohan. Crossed bridge, rode there – and harvested some Riddemark ore. Strange thing:I was able to harvest while mounted (Rohan only). Fields were nicely green and there were lots of wild horses running around as well as some evil monsters. Almost everything suggests it is a border with lots of clashes between free people and hordes of Sauron. I enjoyed the landscape of Easter Rohan and think it is worth every Turbine point, every real-life penny.
Then I returned to Great River, once again harvesting each Skarn ore, running or fighting monsters. It was a great relaxation – and some profit too. I crafted weapons, sold them (6–10 silver coin each) and was able to cover repair bills. Soon, I reached top mastery with Westfold Weaponsmith. Tier 7 in Weaponsmith is finished, all that remains is last one, Tier 8 – Eastemnet weaponsmith.
Crafting Riddermark ingots was a bit problematic: they required new type of coal (12 silver coins each) and I was out of toons who would be able to supply in big numbers. Oh yes, I have my house flooded with simple coal instead (will have to sell half of it and purchase rich and eastemnet coal instead).
Satisfied with my progression, I teleported to Thorins Hall, visited Weaponsmith Guild to purchase Large reputation emblem recipe…and in one moment I crafted it. Yet another 7000 reputation with weaponsmith guild, I am progressing quickly with it.
But that’s not the end. I was able to be usefull to others:donated some Red Agates to one person; sent some 130 Pure calenard ore to another. At least some use from me to the Kinship. On the other hand – one kinnie donated some 130 Lossoth reputation items: very kind gift.
And so the day has ended: no TPs grinded, but just a great fun in very nice landscapes:unlike Moria/Angmar, Lothlorien, Great River and Rohan just invites to stay, to look in landscape and enjoy atmosphere of Lord of the rings. My crafting run is almost over, now I am going to focus on reputation with Lothlorien, almost all single-player deeds with Lothlorien…and then back to Moria, for some unfinished business.
I feel so happy and relaxed with Lotro these days: game has very much to offer and I do enjoy it.
