LOTRO: Turtle Power In Angmar

16 Sep

LEGOTMNTLOTRO

Tsukuld was nicely surprised to be able to bring in some reinforcements to stomp out Trolls in West Angmar. Typically for LOTRO they are greyed out landscape mobs which are able, occasionally, to kick his little ass! They are meant to be dealt with on level in a fellowship but here I am cleaning up in Angmar and running into Trolls that are in my way…

Turtle Power

So who are you gonna call? Ghostbusters? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?…No just one really pissed off mummy turtle!

T&T

T&T…used to play that!

Gaeruan is a turtle with attitude…by nicking an egg from its nest and placing it close to the campfire in the center of the Troll and Orc camp ‘she’ (why cannot daddy turtle appear?) turns up and creates mayhem! Now, Tsukuld did this 2 times as both times his AOE attacks pissed the turtle off and she decided to take it out on him! Well it was him that stole and started to bake her egg after all!

It was fun and I felt in the end that these kind of treats would be better if they were not hidden within quests…and were repeatable, maybe on countdown as not to spoil game balance too much!

Pick up an item and place it somewhere to trigger ‘special’ events.

Carry a banner from orc camp into skirmish camp to trigger an event where the normally idle NPC’s kick some Orc ass!

Auroch skull in North Downs (East of Esteldin) could be placed in various camps to trigger various conflicts…how about hillmen vs Earth Kin or even Troll vs earth kin.

Or just by placing items found in landscape near a NPC an event will occur…lost kitten, npc runs up hugs character and leaves with kitten…

Does LOTRO do this anywhere?

After restoring the peace…

Pease picking restoring the peas

I decided it was time for pizza (not really!) so with a huge scream of “Cowabunga” I ran off for work!

    This post and its great screenies reminds me of how long I’ve not been back to these regions. Great stuff!
