Lord of the rings online

Turbine announced news about new content

I really shouldn’t be posting yet but…

We really want the content leading up to the Black Gate to live up to the player’s expectations. That’s what we are working on now. But the crescendo of what happens to the Ring needs to be fantastic. Once the players have to enter Mordor itself… we feel that we need something “big” to do that justice.


At least some beam of light in the night. We will see Mordor, maybe we will see the fate of the One Ring. What happens next, only Turbine knows. Either end of the game (well, folks, time to sail to Undying lands) or putting game in eternal maintenance mode (Asheron’s call). However, for next 1-2, maybe 3 years we do have some future. And licence is most likely to be renewed.

I feel kind of satisfaction. At least game would last untill renewall and we would have some content.

Meanwhile, Vytautaz finished over-boring starter pages of Book 3. Go there, speak with Nar, then speak with rangers, then speak to other NPC, speak with rangers again…Finally, it was over. I have also cancelled few quests in Angmar (why should I need them?).

Did daily instances in Entwood. Fortunately, got Wargs in one of them, so Warg slayer deed progressed: now need only ~60 of them to finish Advanced. Legendary weapons reached level 30, were reforged and now are closing to lvl.40. I will grind them to level 60, no doubt and then deconstruct.

And, of course, slayer deeds: need to finish all of the, except Troll slayer, before I enter Westfold. Westfold should see me completely prepared for battles.

Also, posted some second-hand essences on AH. Would see if anyone needs them at all.


Played without any enthusiasm. Quests were boring, uninvolving, sometimes confusing. Each day I get log in rewards that I have little clue about. Rift can be played, but it lacks soul, immersion. You just can’t think of any NPC you meet. You run with your trustfull sword or wand nearby canons, robots, mechanical horses and pistols. And yet you have spells + enemies like Spiders.

I will play Rift as a second-hand game just to do something. Thanks to advices, I was finally able to equip good 28-slot bag.

Other games

Read about Everquest II, one player at mmorpg.com reccomended me it. Unfortunately, restirctions for f2p are too heavy: would not play this game.

And so the day has ended, it was quite good in Lotro.
