OP  10/14/07 1:36:47 AM#1

My friends and I are sick of WoW screwing up class roles and ruining the game for stupid PvP. One thing we did love was the PvE in WoW. WoW had fun dungeons and raids. We are quitting WoW now in search of a game that knows how to give classes certain roles and let them be the best in that role. I played a Warrior in WoW and would like a fun tanking experience in my next MMORPG.

Is LOTR the game we are looking for? Are the dungeons fun, unique and exciting? Are there large grand bosses to slaughter in raid environments? I also considered EQ2 but it has been out so long probably hard to catch up, they also spit out too much expansions too fast.

Yes, the dungeons are fun, unique and exciting, thay are better done then any other mmo i have seen, but sometimes thay are to well hidden , trough there realy great you must be able to find groups for it i heard some people had some problems whit that, but for the rest i think Lotro dungeons are the best ever.

Quests in Lotro are marked solo or group or raid.  In general, solo quests before lvl 30 are mostly soloable.

Group quests are the usual ones, as in most MMOs.  With the Lotro lore, a lot of the quests takes on extra meaning, like moving up to the Weathertop, the place where the Nazguls stabbed Frodo.  Yes its the same fight, but with a storyline, you know what you are going for.

The epic quests are long quest lines chaining a key story, from book 1 to bk 10 now and bk 11 coming, really excellent stuffs.  Imagine going to help to pull the strings so that the races will come together and talk, much like the meeting of the celebrities in Rivendell leading to the fellowship?  That is book 3, and from bk 4 to 8 you will be totally immersed.

Dungeons are fun, the game is polished.  Its all good till you hit max lvl and exhausted all content.  They issue new content (big continents and dungeons) every few months.  If you do not play Lotro in a hurry, you got lots of content.

I have to agree whit this, anyone who rush to the max level is not prety smart, trough there is more then enough content to keep you going if you just play on a normal rate , i played since day 1 and have now a level 41 cpatain, 12 hunter, and a level 3 monster war leader... all in all i think now that im level 41 the game has offerd me a huge amount of gameplay alrady, and im still only on book 4 and have done lots of dungeons , so in my opion this game has more then enough content, but its like any mmo if you rush to the max level like powerleveling there is not much to do if the game is not that old yet. trough overal i find the leveling slower then world of warcraft, but still people complain thay get bored fast, i say thay have not tryed good enough cuz this game realy great things to offer, even i have to ammid that sometimes i got a bid bored but if you hold on you will defently get hooked, just dont stop at level 30 or something cuz thats were the real fun starts evendim is just great and instance like Garth Argwhen, Tomb of Elendil , Fornost, The Twisted Hearth, Great Barrows, are just a few exsamples of breathtaking Dungeons , i have never seen in any other mmo before.

So if one would say I would play the content often enough I would not level... Strange game.

I'm so broke. I can't even pay attention.

Thanks guys for the responses. I am currently looking at this or EQ2. EQ2 has been out a while so it may be hard to get into but I have read that it has some great raid instances and dungeons. This is what my friends and I play for.

 

I am looking at LOTR as well because they keep the PvP and PvE from affecting each other. I love that! I really dislike pvp and glad it doesn't creep in on my fun. How big are the raids in LOTR? Do you get to fight some huge dragons and nasty monsters about the size of your entire screen?

If you are seeking more of a raid environment with the grand bosses, I think EQ2 would offer you more of that type of play.  Many LOTRO dungeons you must have certain quests to enter them; you can't just enter at will.  LOTRO will likely have more some more raiding in the future as they continue to add content, but raiding is not their focus and is more casual player/group quest  oriented.

Both are good games and both offering trials to give you a small taste of what they have to offer.

No, What im saying is that this game is not for powerlevelers and hardcore players that rush to max level and skip most of the content.
