Lord of the rings online
Stormsong did dailies: Dor Amarth, Agarnaith. Picked mostly Agarnaith – kill those, catch these. Met other players who hunted same monsters, so had some competition and cooperation. Dor Amarth – was easy, kill 20 enemies. Things done – another Alliance items. After short consultations -switched to Naktieskarys, picked Elf Alliance.
Wrong move. First, Legolas is -think logically- in Dor Amarth. Emmm…with his half-brothers/sisters – Orcs? Then, session play as Elves defend against Orcs. Level 5 – another season of running, this time Rivendell. Help this, talk to that, help these, run here…
Finally, I got redirection to Mirabel (for God’s sake, is it Eregion?) and went to sleep. Alliance items are used too quickly, 2000 is not enough for one level, so my 56 items can be not enough.
Well, after Elves I would take some rest, grind even more items and run for the evil Hobbitses. However, Elves are different from Men or Dwarves, these are mostly “talk here and enjoy”. Elves leave, Elves remember. I took a notice on Galadriel. She looked at her mirror for the last time, saw light and dark fighting, then dark consuming light. The power of her mirror was gone. She told me about the ring and that it’s power was diminishing. Now, after One Ring is gone, all others lost their power – Galadriel’s too. It was the only one good and interesting quest line, one that made me enjoy and think.
Gamewise, we have huge discussions about goldspammers, people being nervous too much (nobody spams dying games). My suggestion was simple: make all store items – account bound. Period. Of course, I would enjoy banning entire regions or VPN service providers.
And so, the day has ended, quite good in Lotro. Alliances and more grind await.
