Lotro was played all day long, everything in Lonelands.
Initially I was just killing monsters to finish some deeds and earn Turbine points. At the same time - asked and asked for some help: needed top get 3 "sigils" of war-singers. Finally, one Kinship player arrived and he just slayed those mobs. War-singers could not even think about using their dreadfull summoning ability. Quest was over very quickly.
I returned to my deeds...when one player asked for some help with one quest. I knew it and I did it with small group. We started: i was the biggest guy in the group (level 30). However, lack of discipline made us suffer a bit: some were killed en route. I enjoyed "crowd control" (AoE attacks) and the fact I could handle several lvl.22-23 enemies at one time without taking too much damage.
Then the top of Weathertop came. One named enemy and a horde of folks he summons + troll. We managed to kill named one, even managed to deal with his companions, but troll with his 5000 health was just out of the question. My thought was - I fight, my colleagues support me wioth long-ranged attacks or heals. But it just did not work. We tried several times, employing different strategy and each one failed: our group was just too weak. So, had to leave the Weathertop - but we will return one day and we will have our revenge.
Next quest called for me to return to swamps where Dwarven-iron is found and to speak with one "Stone speaker". He gave me a quest I thought was impossible to do alone: Red maiden one. I gad to talk with undead warrior in the same ruins and that warrior just unleashed several his guards on me. After I defeated guards, he was kind enough to talk to me and pointed to the location of Red Maiden.
While I think talking with maiden (red or green, no matter) in her apartments is good, this one had many angered body-guards, was ugly and summoned some 5 undead warriors. And yes, route to her was guarded, sometimes over-guarded with various undead creatures.
I panicked. Level 30 monster with some 1200 health + four bodyguards with some 500 health each means that I have no chance. However, after seeing how one Dwarf easily killed maiden - I decided to try my luck. Summoned undead did not interfere - I killed maiden and so the quest was over, time to return to ruins (quest hub).
Got some optional quests: kill 24 wighs in the swamps, find undead warrior's ring. Ring was found easily, wighs await to be finished.
I was also very happy to help people: sent some stuff to them or craft a sword. People keep asking about the price - so I added instruction ("1: have fun; 2: price - one thank you"). At last I am of some use to other players.
And so the day has ended. I felt satisfied with it. However, soon I'll take a break - starting my holidays without PC and internet. I will miss Lotro though.
