Lord of the rings online
Stormsong turned in task items in Udun, took Hobbit present and logged off.
Loremaster was active. As I expected – fight was mostly about pet. Send pet, support it with combat spells and only one heal – collect loot. Was able to finish some gathering quests. My bear kills goblins, i collect some winegrapes.
Bear had real trouble versus groups of mobs: the only chance was to blind one mob so that it does not attack within 30 seconds. Despite this, Bear was killed several times. Loremasetr herself seemed to be fragile and had to use health potions every now and then.
As I levelled – I gained almost no new spells. Was not sure where to invest my trait tree points. But the fact is, I did Wolf slayer, Goblin slayer, Hendroval slayer and Spider slayer. Brigand slayer is on its way. Elf ruins exploration finished, Dourhand exploration started.
Levelling with Loremaster is slow, yet guaranteed. It is kind of fun, if one accepts slow advancement. At the other hand: yes, Loremaster is a cool class, should be highly desired in groups. Stick enemies on ground, blind them, make them suffer from ranged Damage over Time spells, send your pet to tank or summon that ranged Bog Guardian for ranged attacks. Also, some basic heals are nice.
In short, I enjoy my Loremaster. It is not very fast, but may be effective. At level 20 it should be nice (ranged attacks at agreesive mode? yay!) so that Shire slayer deeds should cause no problems. Yes, it would be problematic to grind all 250 Lotro points…but if Loremaster fails, Minstrel (that dps machine) would finish.
And so, the day has ended, quite good in Lotro. Loremaster is still fun to play. Just poor Bear, dying too often…
