This blog is about stuff. Sometimes that stuff has to do with MMORPGs.

LoTRO, Fruitcake & Coffee.

I played LoTRO in closed beta and thought it looked like it was shaping up to be a fine game. We talked about buying it on release, but then we didn't, which was just as well, since our lives have changed greatly since then. It would have been a waste of money while we were fixing up our old house, selling it, moving, fixing up the new house, looking for new jobs and working on getting the doors of our new family business open.

Things are still pretty crazy, but we now have a little recreational time in the evenings, so I thought it would be a good time to ask my husband if he wanted to give the trial a good run for a week. He hasn't played it before in any form, so he agreed to give it a try.

We're having fun. I think it has some of the plusses of World of Warcraft, in terms of being able to do something in short play sessions, plus having a lot of small achievements along the way so that you always feel like you've made some sort of progress, whether it is finishing deeds or quests or whatever. What I don't know, from playing now or from playing before, is whether or not it still plays the same later in the game. Most of the people we've met so far have been friendly and helpful, so I'd give the community on Brandywine server a thumbs up, at least at the low levels where I've been. I like the Middle Earth setting, myself.

I am seriously thinking about getting the game as our Christmas present to each other. The special holiday pricing ($9.99 if you subscribe for 3 months at a time) seems like a good deal, anyway, and I can see myself playing this for a while.

Of course, we got each other WoW for Christmas when it was released, and that only lasted 6 months. Who knows?

I am about to go play some more. He's down in the shop and nothing is going on down there right now. I'm at home with kids. It seems like a good time.

I am snacking on Hostess Holiday Fruitcake with strong, bitter coffee. I don't know anyone else who eats fruitcake on purpose. I love the bitter and sweet contrast though, like this, or one of those overly sweet doughnuts from Dunkin' Donuts along with their coffee sans sugar.

(And now for the obvious joke: "You are what you eat...")

LOTRO is just a bad copy of WOW, nothing else.

I like it pretty well, though, and the important thing is that it is something we can both play.  I am just not sure it is long term. WoW sure wasn't, for us.

On my own, I'd probably go back to L2 or EQ2. He flat out hated L2, and he didn't care for EQ2 all that much, and we couldn't ever quite get together on quests and leveling in that game either, which was frustrating for both of us trying to play together.

My husband played UO, then EQ1, and then VCO, all obsessively in their own time. He could probably go back to being an EQ1 addict, but I can't. We'll just say that I'm not that hardcore.

A bad copy of WoW? It's working for us so far.

The thing about LOTRO, is it's WoW, if WoW had more plot. I've been playing the game since the closed beta, and it's enjoyable. The only thing that gets troublesome is at higher levels some of the quests become impossible without a party, and depending on your class it becomes annoying. Another factor is, the pvp aspect of the game is lacking. Sure it seems fun at first, but you soon find out that ever character camps at bases waiting for you to attack.


It's an awesome game if you enjoy PvE and a solid interactive storyline, but it lacks in pvp. Though, i'd definately say it's worth playing for at least 3 months.

p.s. Captains FTW!

I am lvl 42 and getting near the endgame, but i cant really say i am at the end, i havnt raidied yet, still have a shitload of quests to do, and a ton of achievements n deeds to gather. If i had delved into a craft i would probably be only lvl 30, so i still have crafting to have a go at yet too, the end game looks promising, i can now start saving for my kinships guild hall too.

I loved the opening scenes of LOTRO. The hobbit coming upon a Nazgul, and the elf helping Rivendale defend itself.

After that everything was downhill....
