LOTRO: TP Grind for Quest Pack DONE!

10 Apr

Thanks to a 1 legged hobbit on RP server Laurelin, Opopa in Breeland, saved the day and did enough slaying of spiders, bandits and orcs (all completed including ADV); as well as basic deeds for wights and barghests; ruins, dunedain and barrow down exploration; and finally Bree rep. I was able to get Lothlorien Quest pack in the 20% sale at 556 tp with 1tp left over!

Burglar play was quite fun…especially liked that he looks like he runs as if on speed – is that the hobbit run animation? Not helped by useless daggers (lv10!) and was amazed to see how expensive a busy server AH is! 7gp for lv20 cyan jewelry! And it may be busy but no lv20-30 daggers on sale!


If you can help my poor helpless 1 legged hobbit on Laurie give him a PM, even better invite him into a nice kin! I am sorry he is a bit of a lazy beggar, a drunk and a thief… a true RP hobbit burglar!

Only 4 more packs to go at the moment… Next up will probably be Wildermore and Gondor so can finally get to level cap with my RK…lingering in Rohan at the moment at lv77! Obviously will probably distract myself by wandering off and doing something else before then… TP grinding sounds useful… but also have Forochel and now Lothlorien to explore…

Oh wonderful LOTRO distractions…

LOTRO: A Deed Needed is a Deed Indeed!

5 Feb

Tsukuld is still getting ready to set off to East Rohan, I want to raise some of my traits so I will need to complete some deeds…



Meta-deed not done…Old Forest to be explored and Barrow downs slayer deeds left unfinished, all of this is pretty unforgivable…




Well it was Tsukulds starting area, am actually missing Meta-deed and Rath Teraig exploration…also SARNUR deeds to be done…good for Thorin’s Hall rep items 🙂 (new min lv of 35 to use)



Done all except Meta-deed due to irritating pie delivery deed!



Lots to do here and now I can wrap up the half completed EPIC Vol1 Bk2 The Red Maid as well!



OOPS…only a couple of exploration deeds to be done!



or EVERSWIM! Tsukuld has only popped in to visit, will need to show restraint when coming back to slay and explore…must ignore quests…ok may do the EPIC…or more likely leave for later…



Another area Tsukuld basically skipped through, some good EPIC quests to do… must chase down Gollum as well!



Lots to wrap up here…but most of quests done, may say hi to pole turner



Tsukuld half-heartedly explored the Misty Mountains, shouldn’t take too long to wrap it all up, even the EPIC Vol1 Bk5 The Last Refuge




Passed through to get to Moria…time to go back me thinks…

It never ever ever ends…as Tsukuld is always popping back here on the whim of all and sundry will leave these to get completed as they get completed as they surely will. May wrap up any EPIC quests as I find them…


Both areas need to be ‘purchased’, I will do this as soon as I can, well maybe soon with all the TP flowing in while wrapping up these deeds!


I have but have not explored.



Bits n bobs left undone, but all fresh i my head and to be honest need a change so will be back here towards the end of my ‘Deed’ endeavor!


Tsukuld spent 45 minutes juggling tailor recipes and diverse other alt crafting mats… Have now about 10 diverse recipes (better than the 1 yesterday!) but only 2 light armour 😦

This is not such an auspicious start of the deed bonanza… luckily I have a week off work coming up, so barring any mishaps I am looking forward to a very profitable vacation in Middle Earth, with the tantalizing prospect of Rohan just over the horizon…


LOTRO: Wild Rovers U15.2

4 Feb


‘I’ve been a wild rover for many’s the year
I’ve spent all me money on whiskey and beer
But now I’m returning with gold in great store
And I never will play the wild rover no more
And it’s No, Nay, never,
No, nay never no more
Will I play the wild rover,
No never no more’
The Dubliners – ‘Wild Rover

U15.2 has arrived: ROVING THREATS are now to be found in Angmar, Forochel, Western Gondor, and the Misty Mountains. I presume they will not appear unless the appropriate quest is taken as these are lv100 beasties and will surely eat up and spit out what little remains of any on level solo explorers…

They are not replacements or even a re-introduction of the RARE ELITES that used to be farmed for crafting mats, as these could be taken down by good players on level for the area encountered, and for us more normal players in on level fellowships. I have always enjoyed these encounters and indeed felt that an encounter, and almost certain ‘death’ to a RARE ELITE broke up the monotony of basic/easy LOTRO landscape play.

‘I went in to an alehouse I used to frequent
And I told the landlady me money was spent
I asked her for credit, she answered me nay
Such a customer as you I can have any day
And it’s No, Nay, never,
No, nay never no more
Will I play the wild rover,
No never no more’
