LOTRO: WEEKEND kinda TP grinding while sitting down!

17 Nov

Ered Luin explored

ERED LUIN wrapped 🙂 Now back to Bree for more TP grinding 🙂

campfire frolics1

Chilling around the campfire

cappy crappy in the fountain

Chilling at the Fountain…

Cappy levitates...fire goes out

Campfire goes out and Ilcaptanotsu…levitates…or has developed jet propulsion!

Family and mommy

Mommy helps out Cappy and Huntress…not needed but was fun, only strange point was I tried and tried to start a conversation but never received a reply? Mommy followed me all the way to the bandit camp and back, twice, helping out by speeding things up, there was no danger really…

Family fun1

A little celebratory dance 🙂

hello hello

Huntress decided to blow some TP on a class skill,: ‘Nock on the Move’, helps to fire off arrows while running about, useful if I could remember to keep moving while firing!

more tp spent on class skills

SO the weekend ended with little progression into the second part of Bree, Barrow Downs not even started 😦

The good news is that I actually enjoyed my too little time in LOTRO and want to get back into GAME…

Look out ME, Tsu is back 🙂


13 Nov

Twice this week so far, and we are only 4 days in, I have managed to actually PLAY LOTRO rather than log in and collect hobbit presents!


From my days at UPS this is a horrible wall of boxes, where are the 'T's?

From my days at UPS this is a horrible wall of boxes, where are the ‘T’s?

So Ilcaptanotsu and Marimere have now wrapped up Ered Luin TP grind and are now wandering around Goblin infested Rath Teraig…daunting in that I always miss one site (which one I am unsure of…) and end up doubling over my tracks…wasting time…all but 2 found and META DEED of Ered Luin close to completion, but ran out of time this morning.

So pseudo multi box continues…playing my Hunter in Huntman mode, theoretically to keep things moving but keep having to stop myself from stopping and firing… Captain is in follow mode and his Herald of War, Fred is set to aggressive…So my mauling threesome is tearing through the area: Huntress is lv17, Cappytsu lv19 so working together landscape content is super EASY! I plan to do some skirmishes to see if I can work on some proper 2 player ‘cappy/huntress n Fred’ strategies!

Other than that this weekend back to BREE and wrap up TP stuff there before heading off to scary HARD Shire TP run… MORE CAKEWALK, may even use the park and farm technique so derided by many… i.e. leave chars in slayer deed area and let herald do the mopping up!


Both my Cappy and Huntress were started after my VIP ran out so having to spend TP on traits was a slight shock to the system after the easy VIP times…worst and most needed spend were the skill traits earned in the skill tree… unlocking these will be a pain but I will probably do it. My newbie huntress is restricted to 3 bags, currency cap and so many other restrictions being a new account that I am not surprised that NEWBs to LOTRO quickly pack it in… GENEROSITY is not the first word they will be associating with TURBINE …


I love hummous and hummous wrap sounds great :)

I love hummus and hummus wrap sounds great 🙂

So an easy weekend ahead and 300 TP short of Mirkwood… but lots still to collect and I have yet to start on rep items in my shared folder… 🙂

LOTRO: Ork Log Blok’d Blog

24 Oct

Tsuhelm a LOTRO BLOK!

Having a really frustrating week in RW (work), RW (health) and RW(life well wife!), and that is feeding back into my motivation to play LOTRO…

The fall festival is falling and as I love the haunted burrow it is sucking up the LOTRO time I do get…

And that is dripping down into my blog….which has become a bit blocked…

I have tried throwing chemicals and hot water at the problem…caffeine in hot coffee!

I have used brute force… but only hurt my head.

Now I am just writing…. hope that it doesn’t just add to the blockage!


Ork bloking my blog
A bloke blogging from York (not as yet…)
Maybe the ork blocked the bog with a log!
Must flog that ork who left log
Whats this, a fog?
Cant tell a frog from a log let alone an ork from a fork.
Lest the ork test my jest…
Zesty pork talk clogging my blog

Still blork’in mad…

Got a Blork’d blog?
Who you gonna call?

Spiderpig lotro

The weekend is almost here… I obviously need it!

So hope to get some good LOTRO gaming in, aim to earn lots of TP, Ilcaptanotsu to wrap up Bree and head off to Ered Luin with my archer multibox, Marimere, in tow…why?…why not!

Have a great weekend fellow bloggers, be careful out there and don’t let the orks log your blog!

LOTRO: My Feet are Happy as 2 windows of LOTRO are better than 1!

21 Oct

Well my NEWB F2P account huntress Marimere has linked up with Ilcaptanotsu…

‘Will the Krill: You hear that? They’re doing it again!
Bill the Krill: Doing what?
Will the Krill: This.
[starts to dance and laugh frantically]
Bill the Krill: Fascinating. What is it?
Will the Krill: I have no idea.
Bill the Krill: [starts to dance as well] Wow! What’s it for?
Will the Krill: Perhaps it’s a momentary relief from the existential terrors of existence.
Bill the Krill: Oh.
Bill the Krill: What?
Will the Krill: It brings out my happy!’

Happy Feet 2 – quotation!

2 windows of LOTRO fun…

…my first experience of multiboxing in LOTRO…

And as I am doing it unsupported (NO software) , alt tab (am pretty fast with this as lots and lots of excel sheet hopping the last 15 years!), it is still a stop start kinda affair.


Using Ilcaptanotsu as my main, his war herald, Fred, and Marimere following. If needed Marimere can let off a few arrows but is faffy to then follow again…so she just tags along, gets XP and drops and most importantly has tracking skills which DO NOT interfere with follow, so can find those tricky mobs for slayer deeds…well its been a great help for Sickle fly slaying at least… (I imagine slug slaying in the Shire will be sped up as well!)


Looking bleak and bare…graphics on low to help with running the game!


Nice NEWB outfit Marimere

While Neekering (slaying neekers!) I used Marimere as main, drawing weakened mobs to the war heralds coup de Grace, Fred set on agro also took out a few stragglers as well…so for well populated areas this works quite well, alt tab to Captain for extra oomph! Sorted…

more oomphf

This morning my wife’s computer refused to run LOTRO longer than a couple of minutes so I grabbed my Hobbit presents and ran…

Which reminded me of my lucky 1 legged burgler Opopa …not saying having 1 leg is lucky rather he was lucky with his freebies, he already has a 100 mithril coins and then:


1st gift might tome II…nice

Next day, another gift: Might tome III …even nicer!

Would make Opopa the one legged burglar quite mighty if I used them…will hang on to them for now…

Will be taking Opa through the Haunted Burrow again this year, hope to get to lv20 and start getting some new mathom armour…lv20 stuff…

Its good to get free stuff while playing…

‘Will the Krill: I want to be free, Bill.
Bill the Krill: There is no such thing as free, Will.’

Happy Feet 2 – quotation

So Fall Festival is in effect…time to get running that burrow…why…er why not?

It brings out the happy in me 🙂
