Lord of the rings online
Still Mirkwood. Quests. Go there, kill that, take samples, fight Huorn, swim back to Lothlorien, get sappling, plant it, fight this and that…
Redirection to Scuttledels. Same mad quests: kill crows, look for Elf, Elf is gone-kill dogs, then kill named dog, then explore this…Did them all, without any enthusiasm. Had even rescue Gollum from Orcs (!).
Then, redirection (again) to another camp. Quests to disable catapults and ballistas, killing some named monsters, destroying idols of Sauron.
Only reason I am in Mirkwood is to do almost all landscape quests, then (should I find any help) – quickly do forced skirmishes. Result does not bother me, rewards too. After that – maybe finish some deeds in Enedwaith…and move to Dunland, home of those mistrusting Dunlending, only to be captured and have prison-play in Isengard. Main goal is Rohan with its stories, choices, atmosphere.
Once again, no activity in /world or Kinship, everyone is busy with new regions. Only few people asked for Pelagir in /World, only to receive zero answers.
While not playing Lotro – playng Master of Orion 2. Of course, have to restart maybe 20 times untill my Sakkras are given normal start: main territory not obstructed by nebula/black hole, then – enough planets suitable for colonization, enemies far from me. Then, I rush “Research lab – Neutron Blaster – Shield mark I – Battle pods – Advanced damage control – Graviton beam”. That’s starter configuration, Deuterium fuel cells are researced when they became a must. Later I go for Mauler Device, titan construction, Stellar converter and Megafluxers.
Life in Lotro is so empty and grey. Take Hobbit presents, do Mirkwood quests, chat a bit, log off – daily job is done. All I care about are levels, I do need more and more of them to handle Virtues.
