Stormsong enjoys questing in Mordor. Daily quests are done easily, I am sufficient to kill and heal. Gathering all those Alliance relics, one day would need all of them.
Naktieskarys resumed Black Book of Mordor. So far everything went good: got here, kill that, locate this. First trouble – Talath Urui, quest from Standing stone to kill 8 spirits. Ho ho ho, a group of monsters? Good, bring them all for shing-shing!
Shing-shing ended quickly, I was killed very fast while managed to kill 1 spirit from 3. Mordor book sent me to Naebrand to find some stuff. I was stuck, so just went to Agarnaith. Local quests initially were easy. Killing stuff sometimes was problematic, yet doable. Then, ill-famous “save Viznak” quest. 1 named melee monster, around 136.000 health. Two defilers with some 56.000 health. I went to shing-shing, understood I was no match,retreated. Tried to farm simple Orcs – any group of 3 proved to be a challenge. Lucky me, saw one player (Captain?) farming orcs. Started following him, helped him and so SOLO quest was done. Under normal circumstances it would require full fellowship, but developers do not care to play their own game.
Next it was a quest to kill some bugs: you kill 10 Bugs A, get auto-updated to kill 10 Bugs B…I went to one of them, saw group, decided to shing-shing…
In short, I went to do several quests then logged off really grumpy. My Champion was very weak. Trait tree setup cannot be blamed, I have only 1 point to distribute. Armour is outdated (but it’s pre-lvl.115 one) and no essences in it. No idea what to do, I expected Champion to be better than Minstrel. Turns out, it is worse.
Brighter news: Xindra, my LP grinder, worked hard. Ered-Luin was done quickly. Then finished Slayer of Bree-land. Moved to the Shire, finished exploration deeds and started (most monsters were grey) slayer deeds. Things went really good, then I took prospector vocation, started crafting and probably must crft my way up to lvl.22. Then – Rath teraig exploration, maybe even Slug slayer in Shire. Also, used reputation items: Kindred with Shire and Bree. Earned maybe 300 Lotro points and had much fun.
Xindra remains active to do some exploration, crafting and to be usefull on Yule encore. After all, all those tier 10 essences won’t fell from the sky, right?
And so, weekend was good (except poor vulnerable Champion in Mordor). Questing goes good, LP grind goes good – the sky is almost bright.
Except for Champion in Mordor.
