VIP free trial #5


‘If you can judge a wise man

By the color of his skin

Then mister you’re a better man than I


Livin’ on the edge

You can’t help yourself from fallin’

Livin’ on the edge

You can’t help yourself at all

Livin’ on the edge

You can’t stop yourself from fallin’

Livin’ on the edge’

Day7 pt2

Oh wonders will never cease…actually did get to play some LOTRO this night, just an hour but enough time to basically wrap up preparation for planned TP grind to start over the Weekend.

Day8 pt1

As quickly as possible I logged in and out on all  chars for Hobbit presents, Tsudryt did a little bit of buying and selling and weaponsmith guild rep crafting!

Then…the long awaited day had arrived…it was 5Am on 21st December 2013 time to create a NEW TP grinder…

…too exciting…

Gullorodspiseret was created.

1min 10secs used on creation: Human Champ Random..#1 ugly, #2 ugly #3…that is Captain Jean Luc Picard!

5 mins was used setting up UI and options on this new char!

41mins 1 sec and I finally start the instance to end the Archet area.

46 mins finished instance, hurrah am now in the real world…er real game world of LOTRO!

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a  mini gift of Valar that jumped you past this (VIP can jump the ultra basic intro quest already!) Fellow blogger, Pasduil, pointed out that there is, its called the Veteran Status. 100Tp single use per I grind max 50TP an hour this would be a loss but useful to know! (Read his adventures with a champ and using the Gift of Valar here.)

Day10 pt2

2100 45 mins of stupidity in Rath Teraig Gondamon and though it would be a little short cut to Celondim…it was not!

…spiders done and most of goblins…got killed by elite gobs…my own stupidity. Nr 1 son should not enjoy killing spiders so much…he loved it!

10PM: 45mins, 20TP

Day11 pt1

0430AM ok normal Ered Luin guide being followed


13.00 wolf 5tp

25 ally of Ered Luin 10tp

33 gobs in the vineyard adv 10tp

5.15AM: 45 mins, 25TP

Am running this at level 17 but very close to level 18, most of mobs in this part of Ered Luin are now greyed out…which makes picking em all up and smashing them a bit slower… without the extra VIP XP would be slightly lower and maybe would actually be quicker.

Champ comment: my tree is all yellow


almost maxed Blade Damage, and am actually loving Raging Blade. The Sound is great and it simply decimates packs of low mobs…


Maybe I am not generating TP as fast as I would like but I am enjoying this run.

Living on the edge is great in LOTRO…

‘Something right with the world today

And everybody knows it’s wrong

But we can tell ’em no or we could let it go

But I’d would rather be a hanging on


Livin’ on the edge

Livin’ on the edge

Livin’ on the edge

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah’
