Lord of the rings online
Stormsong spent a long weekend in Lotro. One day – off, because of personal life. Other time – Lotro, Lotro and one more time Lotro.
Wildermore survivors’ reputation grind goes slowly and boring, there is nothing exciting in doing same thing 100 times in a row.
The exciting thign was: I was needed by community. One player needed help with Garth Agarwen, where we did landscape things, accidentaly ran into 2 instances and finally completed almost everything. Player died only 1 time, many times instances’ side quests were completed. Then, aided another player in Forochel with local exploration and slayer.
When got tired – I went to Barrows and killed monsters. After return there were always give aways of crafting stuff. As always, most popular are Scholar materials, jeweller ones are of zero demand.
Few times I could not aid everyone who needed it – I group with person A, then person B and C ask for help. Also, had to explain to one kinnie that Kinship does not look positively at powerlevelling. One has to know his/her class.
Decided to do some ninja-stuff. Typically I go to Barrows, look for lower level players fighting local monsters and heal players. Sometimes monsters tried to attack me. Not sure if that was helpfull or not.
I was happy: community needed me, I was of some aid to others, especially lower levels. Was advicing one, aiding other player, giving stuff to another. It felt really good.
Community started new fashion: giving away gold. Typically to lower levels, amount of some 0,5-3 gold. Out of nothing. I (just why me, lvl.115?) received 3,5 gold in a mail. Why? Not sure. Anyway, this fashion is really nice and helpfull to lower level players.
Community joked, last rant was about “Fifty shades of Gandalf the Grey”. We joked hard, had a good laugh ending with -“of course, Christopher Tolkien would approve this”…
On the contrary, Lotro forums are of entirely bad things. Ash is going to be impossible to get – only option is tier 2 raid with long time-lock on chests. So, while in Mordor, no quality armour. Suicidal, unwise move by developers. But hey, they don’t play, don’t listen and don’t care. Bad feedback? oh, not to worry, we’ll ban every non fan boy from forums and get everything throuigh rose glasses.
And so weeekend has ended, quite good in Lotro.
ASTA: ceased operating for the second time. No pity for them.
Secret World legends:did not miss at all. Sorry.
Guild wars 2:sometimes thinking of returning, but really little wish.
