Lord of the rings online
My 500th post on this blog! Well, I guess it may be just the begining…
Meanwhile in nice green fields of Lotro… Windstorms killed stuff in Lonelands, doing her class deeds. Then I had to choose: do Trollshaws and heavily outlevel some other regions (Evendim, Misty Mountains, begining of Angmar) or… And I chose to deed in the Shire. Nice peacefull country, nosey hungry Hobbitses, easy deeds, easy Turbine points.
Turbine donated a coupon; -30% discount form purchase cart. After long consultations with the kinnies, went for some shopping:
Rise of Isengard expansion. Was 20% off, received more discount
Shared storage, +5 slots
Result – used coupon twice, then purchased without coupon and was left with 19 Turbine points. Yes, Shire was really an option for quick TPs: I will need one more slot for TP grinding toon.
Went to barrows with kinnies. We had some fun killing monsters, looting stuff and friendly sharing reputation items. I was happy to give items I did not need to those who really needed. One of great many positive things to be in good Kinship.
Stormsong continues her learning. I switched my Minstrel to blue trait tree, chose blue stance and am using all the heals I have. At bluie line Minstrel is superb supportive unit. Heals, heals over time, protective bubbles, 2 types of resurrection (one – to revive up to 5 allies in combat and another – revive 1 ally out of combat). i asked Kin to invite me to instances/raids, first time after long hiatus. Almost always asked for a feedback. I am glad kin does not hide the truth. Initially I received some…sour words. One kinnie told me, I did not want to learn and want to use content very fast – I was in my comfort zone (dps minstrel) and did not want to experiment. Sadly, it is true and I am grateful to that kinnie. That’s what real friendship means:to tell about wrong things frankly and without hurting. Yes, I feel comfortable with self-healing dps Minstrel. But now, I have to master healer. To know skills. To be a good healer. Of course, that means feeling weird: I do not attack, just run away from monsters and spam heals all the time. I was glad to revive others or to protect lower levels at Filikul. If no one in group dies – that means only one thing: healers were doing their job good. And one day I will be doing my job good.
And right now I am grindign Turbine points to accumulate some 500 TPs and buy another character slot when it is on discount.
So weekend with Lotro was over. I felt satisfied, life was good once again in Lotro.
