Lord of the rings online
Weekend has passed, Lotro was played – time for some impressions.
NaktiesKarys fought in Moria, partially succesfull, partially – not. Went with one kinship member to 16th hall and could not make it because of huge aggro. I was not able to aid much, she could not hold too long because of horde of Orcs. Had to retreat…and not return, our Kinship was inactive in Moria.
Instead, made two Kinship events, called “Chicken hunt”: gather in the Shire, receive task to find Shire-specific item and whoever arrives first, is the winner.
My NaktiesKarys went for some genocide to Haudth Iarcith, slayed everything, grinding for Mathom reputation items. In the end, some 30 Gift Mathoms and lots of single mathoms were grinded as wella s some gold earned. Few times I encountered…competitors, but it was not a problem.
Later went to Angmar to finish one quest: quest was done quickly, quest item removed from inventory. Saw one Hobbit being chased by undead, saved him – and received question to help him with two quests. First time we went through risky territory and both were killed. Later, took safe route. I took away opposition that could be dangerous to Hobbit, he healed me. We managed to kill one mob with 20.000 hp: Hobbit’s heals saved the fight. Then – two monsters, one Envoy and one Silk lady. Both were dealth with and my Hobbit died only once. Helped another group of players to escort one girl to safety. We were attacked by groups of strong monsters (some 10.000 hp), but were able to defend. Then, I could do worm-slayer deed and even loot some reputation items. Ran into “Seven swords” deed, finished it, got some TPs…but failed quest, since it really requires strong group.
There was nothing more I could do as NaktiesKarys: vault was full of Cordolan trinkets, Gift Mathoms, mathoms, even Barrow iron and silver ore.
DunedanMule used all of the reputation items and got in better rep with Council of the North. She also took all ore and crafted ingots: yet another profit. WoneG took Gift Mathoms, reaching Kindred reputation with Mathom society; she also paid for house upkeep (2 weeks), filled Eastmnet and Rich coal stocks in the vault. Still, some 1 gold to spent and not shure where. Reputation items are crazy expensive (39 gold for 100 Eregion rep items?).
And so weekend has ended. I felt both satisfied and lost: could not do profitable deeds and Isengard expansion is still “far, far awat”. Had 1325 Turbine points – some 1170 to go (oh my, some 9 toons to create/delete). 150 Cordolan trinkets: enough for Kindred rep. with Bree men (and 50 Tps). Life is just good in Lotro.
