Lord of the rings online
…the wait and eternal grind was over. My last “WoneK” used her reputation items, observed magic number of 2524. The time was right: I finally had enough Turbine points to purchase Riders of Rohan expansion.
Questing was interesting one. Some quests are bestowed by NPCs – and quite logically, you should return to them. Some quests are auto-bestowed like “oh, look, Orcish ballista, destroy 3 of them”…and auto-complete, rewarding you with valuable xp.
Rohirrim initially were very suspicious – mayor of Harwick accused me on tresspassing, exiled from the town, so my poor NaktiesKarys had to run doing lots of quests to finally be able return to Harwick. Quests were different, from “kill NN enemies”, to searching for suitable house for refugees. Of course, this is Rohan and one of the quest in enemy camp demanded to free horses. It was natural, it was just Rohirrim way.
Met my first warbands – one consisting of Salamander, killed them on foot. Others were…more problematic as one warband’s leader had some 69.000 health. Was killed several times by him, but one day I will have my revenge.
Mounted combat is still a problem for me. There are so many attacks and modes, I could get lost with. There was one quest where I participated in mounted combat and even managed to kill something; later I repeated it with some enemies. However, my horse was too fast so I cruised in circles, pressing almost all active buttons. Result – several enemies killed. I do need to ask somebody to help me with mounted combat so I could do it properly.
Mounted problems aside, day was great. Rohan is interesting, inviting and doable. Now, I will be there, enjoying the content.
And so, the day has ended, I had 49 TPs at the end of it (20 TPs earned) and some Bounder tokens. Day was just great in Lotro.
