Lord of the rings online
StormSong was the only active, questing in Enedwaith. As always, quests differed: kill X wild dogs, destroy that evil Limfavrn, gather that stuff. Not so bad, untill I had to do quests for the only Hobbit village. One of the first: go, farm 10 merrygolds and get 10 boar droppings. Dear Hobbits, I’d like to stomp you into boar droppings. Somehow Lotro loves droppings: in Fangorn I had to investigate bat drops, in Moria – clean Goat drops…
This aside, questing went very well. I hunted, I searched, I auto-completed some deeds. Finally gor redirected to Dunlending town and took my part in disrupting alliance between local Dunlendings and Isengard. Yes, Dunlendings are treacherous and I do not trust them, but at least this time their selfish motifs were used for a good purpose. They won’t ally with Saruman and their “champion” was dead, I killed him.
I had one interesting quest line in local forest: to “hunt” three spirits. First one was the most evil: follow little birdie, try to not get lost, avoid green gas covered areas and enemies. Somehow managed to survive, event timing was sufficient. Second – defeat some spirit and third – protect some spirit. Then fourth spirit, it asked to recognize one Limfavrn amongst 6 others and defend it. That done, quest line was over. I went for dailies (kill shadow wolves, find source of their power, protect local herd), earned golden tokens, gained some xp. And the hunt was mostly over.
NaktiesKarys wanted to do some activity. Training mission with Dol Amroth bank was not an option. After Wiki, game tries to give less golden tokens if you do same faction every day. Kinship was organizing Helms Deep raid, 12 man…and I did not go. Such raids require knowledge and patience: I have none. I dislike Big Battles, they are Big Failures for me. And I have little patience to wait for things to happen. Declined. A pity, soon almost all active kinnies went to raid and I was left solo.
And so the day has ended, some TPs were earned, legendary items advanced – life was good in Lotro.
