Lord of the rings online
Stormsong’s adventures in Mordor continues. There are many quests and I do my best to finish them + slayer deeds. Exploration deeds does not go so fast and well.
I found signal flags, then some more signal flags, finally even more signal flags. Got tired, so did not read the quest text (it was about great many signal flags, I guess…). Then – repair some mechanisms, after that got attacked by Goats, then got deed to shoo goats and take care of some (goat) master. Most interesting thing – to shoo goats. We collected goat droppings, now we shoo them (not droppings).
“Go and take” quests were not that interesting. The only one that fascinates me is Lost Lore of Udun. I pick up some page and then I hear audio story about certain event, like “The great Grond was made there” or “Sauron ordered to open many smithies”. That’s nice and inviting. Managed to find all 4 stones in Forges of Uudn, then went to kill one Fire grim.
Rest of the story: was redirected to one fortress. Starting was a bit standard – kill these, find that, destroy those. Then I witnessed story of the fall of that fortress how defenders valiantly fought…and failed, surrendering to Sauron and being killed. Story was captivating and interesting.
Then, one twist – I had to help one slave, do stuff for Easterlings, and to find one monster killed with evil Dwarves nearby. Dwarves swore it was not them. yeah yeah, convince me …
Met one lvl.106 Minstrel, asked if she needed help. “Better in company” – she replied, but unfortunately, we had no common quests. Had to leave her.
Questing in that fortress was interesting. Fortress full of monsters: simple orcs, ranged orcs, sorcerers etc. Then, got some inside quests…and understood it was a fellowship area. Grouped with two, apparently Russian, players, but they just farmed monsters with little doing of quests. One moment I was defeated and left fellowship.
In short -things are interesting in Udun. Content is mostly doable. Forced fellowship content visible. Bad side: no time for helping others, no time for Wildermore and one day I would have to start Alliance quests.
And so the day has ended – good one in Mordor.
