Lord of the rings online
Had some stuff to do in real life (donate some food to cat shelter), so had less time to play. Stormsong quested in Mordor, then understood I had to enter Barad Gur and face numerous too powerfull enemies.
Nope, I’d better do Black book quests. There was one interesting moment: Mouth of Sauron offered peace to Aragorn. Terms were interesting: Mordor is given to Mouth of Sauron, subject to Aragorn (except internal matters), in exchange of eliminating few enemies. Aragorn refused: victory is at hand, why negotiate?
Well, in Aragorn’s place I won’t negotiate with magicians. Any simple Orc that has no cue about sorcery should be given command of some region, supervised by some Gondorian commander. Let them rule, let them fight amongst themselves. Of course, Aragorn thinks on war only. No peace. A pity.
Then, I made one little mistake: took 2 quests that redirected me to 2 regions: one with Spiders (Atli quest line) and one to Naebrand. I had to fight many powerfull monsters, started some deeds, was killed many times. Lag was heavy, died thanks to it at least one time.
Then, Naebrand. I fought/sneaked my way…and then two guards, too hard for me, me killed. One kinnie volunteered to help, we fought (i.e. he nuked everything, I just followed)…and then eveeyrhting froze.
Fight was lost, “Connection to server lost”. I left angry on lag and my mistake to go inside that Naebrand. I am too weak, Shadow is heavy, my equipment – lousy. Kinnie (Minstrel too) nuked everything easily, I – had many problems.
I know I must not give up. My Tailor can craft Shadowed essences. Naktieskarys theoretically could craft them too. So, when the time comes, I would have enough essences for quality armour. Right now I should be able to use any Dark/Empowered essence I have in my vault. All I need is just one explanation what to use…and maybe I am good to go.
Today we have maintenance. Maybe it would be about game/site/forum lags too.
And so the day has ended – interesting, yet too laggy in Lotro.
