19 Mar


First wrapped up Warg slayer deed at Caldwell Pool. Then back toward Gloin’s Camp to wrap up Snow Beast slayer deed!

And hurrah at last Tsukulds misdeeds draw to a close…Misty Mountains deeds have been done!ScreenShot00030

And I of course opened the metadeed chest to find pick-a-mount box, never had one of those before and I could pick the red skeleton horse 🙂ScreenShot00031

Its been a long ride completing all these deeds, now it is over I am very pleased with myself. I know Tsukuld has a good basis of ‘traits’ to build upon (all about lv10) and is now ready to ride off to Rohan where of course the skely horse will be replaced by ‘my little war pony.’

Mounted combat at last, lets see if I like it!

LOTRO: The Secret Diary Of Tsukuld RK, Misdeeds 13¾!

18 Mar

Tsukuld started the day in Hrimbarg, needed to get to the Warg killing fields in Bruinen Source East… so headed East and quickly found that was not the way so hopped to Gloin’s camp using Milestone skill. Not really on one leg…

Got to wondering about how to rationalize this in Middle Earth, rather than understand the actual MMO mechanic and the need to speed gameplay up.(I have a need for speed!’ – TOP GUN!) I have reached that milestone in game and if I so want it I can relive it at anytime. Likewise the SWIFT mount is a very special mount not that unlike the DeLorean from Back to The Future, in that it starts out as a normal horse, picks up speed and puff you arrive at your destination, horse slows to the stable. And the ‘normal’ stable mount is also quite amazing too, it gets you to your destination (almost always, the days of the stuck stable mount seem to be behind LOTRO.) but it is invulnerable to EVERYTHING, so much so that all and sundry mobs will ignore!

In LOTRO time is not relative, it is constant, slowly ticking away down the proverbial sink…whereas distance has become relative, relatively near and relatively far! You can travel the world of LOTRO in an instant if you so desire.

Terry Pratchett’s Discworld time is also another fascinating read, as is this discussion of how light travels over the disc. Just remember:  ‘…the entire DISC is MAGIC,…  … speed of light can sometimes be outpaced by sound?’ 

Anyway after getting to Gloin’s Camp where he pulled his contemplative head out of his existential arse, Tsukuld headed North.

A few Snow Beasts were killed along the way, the completion of the advanced slayer deed edging ever closer. Turning West before the infamous ‘stairs’ Tsukuld encountered the first few Wargs as he entered Eastern Bruinen Source, but he continued to his goal…the ice rink like Caldwell Pool. Here Tsukuld zapped his way to being halfway through the advanced slayer deed.


So how come Tsukuld has ¾ of a misdeed? Aha, as he also wrapped up the basic deed as well…that was another 100 Wargs.

He may have wrapped up if my own incompetence and the shoddy in-game store had not ended with a deed scroll for class skills not slayer deeds! Wasted 50TP!…

1 more day and should terminate Misty Mountains, will miss misdeeds from Moria and Eregion and go off to collect a war pony!

LOTRO: Misdeeds 13 Goblin Town…

17 Mar


Tsukuld deposed the king of Goblin Town. The king is dead, long live the king.

‘Clap! Snap! the black crack!
Grip, grab! Pinch, nab!
And down down to Goblin-town
You go, my lad!
Clash, crash! Crush, smash!
Hammer and tongs! Knocker and gongs!
Pound, pound, far underground!
Ho, ho! my lad!
Swish, smack! Whip crack!
Batter and beat! Yammer and bleat!
Work, work! Nor dare to shirk,
While Goblins quaff, and Goblins laugh,
Round and round far underground
Below, my lad!’

That green geezer is he a member of Prodigy, Keith Flint? Got the poison. Got the remedy. Got the pulsating rhythmical remedy. That is some trolling drum n bass! Just like the Goblin Town musical number in the Hobbit…


A contemplative picnic, sushi anyone?

Nice graffiti. And the real thing, Graffiti that is by SmugOne:


So Tsukuld fully explored Goblin Town to find all the POI’s and also all of Bilbo’s buttons… I used the Brasse’s Goblin Town map when I got too lost.


And will ya Adam n Eve it, wrapped up all of the explorer deeds of Misty Mountains.

Only Wargs (300+) and a few Snow Beasts to go until My little war pony time…. I am starting to get excited…

LOTRO: Sign in Misty Mountains, ‘Warning. Beware Of Mammoths!’

Tsukuld family life continues to be entertaining… I got tired of North Downs and headed into the Misty Mountains..first stop Gloin’s Camp…nice to have orange mobs to kill and if not too greedy could handle 1 or 2 mobs at a time. Killing bears was especially fun for some reason. I also went up the hill to the stairs to place a sign…

On tip-toe...no on my heals!

On tip-toe…no on my heals!

Back to Gloin’s and Rivendell 😦 more bears to kill…

second sign...better than worm sign!

second sign…better than worm sign!

I ventured down this path and encountered lots of tough dwarves which I was glad to see drop pages for all my legendary books so I imagine they are going to get a pasting soon… Giants and Nasty trolls at the end…RUN AWAY!   While killing snow beasts I passed by a hobbit minstrel, I thought it strange that she was moving around but not killing anything…I backtracked and started a RP conversation, you just never know…and RP’ed lite we went off to kill some beasties…she rocked with her bass and being lv80 was soon rocking the beasties to death…was difficult to keep up!

Beast slayer deed basic done and adv started and with Bears killed back to Gloins and Rivendell 😦 Tsukuld had levelled to 41 and half so time for new armour…crafting time. After completing the pristine armour set – light fate armour, had loads of exceptional leathers left (yeah that did confuse me at first …I got out all my pristine leathers ran across Rivendell to Crafting space (hate this place!) only to find needed exceptionals!) It felt good that Tsukuld could actually pass back some of the leathers I was sent by family members to other family members. An Attack at Dawn later and lv42! Woot! Equip armour and head off up into the mountains again… Time to take on some Mammoths: mammoth hunt tusk 1 down NEXT

Only found 2 outta 3 of the mammoth rings! The giant pachyderm hunt will continue, it always saddens me to kill the neutral wildlife in LOTRO. I try not to do it. I am sorry little winter fox…you were too close to the area attack target!

Having fun in LOTRO…pages needed (but can also pick them all up in Moria), few more levels and I will be heading off for my Legendary… lets see if I can do what I have never done before…get OUT of Moria!
