I hadn’t played my LM Aillas in several weeks, so I decided to ease back into it via skirmishes. I selected Thievery and Mischief, because I just did it on Naerys.
My guardian, Naerys, is a hobbit, which makes for some amusing size mismatches.
I spent most of my time in LoTRO cleaning and rearranging inventory, and then tweaked skirmish traits.
I read Syp’s post about playing STO and realized I’m in that position concerning LoTRO. As you may have noticed from recent posts, I’ve been ignoring Guild Wars and DDO. Oh well. 😉 I’m having tons of fun and enjoying various characters in LoTRO, and don’t see the need to switch games just because. I would like to advance in the Guild Wars quest “War in Kryta”, but it is on the back burner for now.
While questing in the Dolven-view area of Moria on Naerys, I saw kin members ask about running an instance. I didn’t pay too close attention, since I was fighting at the time, but eventually a group formed but they needed a healer… and asked me if I wanted to go. I had just finished up what I was doing and switched over to Suldrun, my minstrel.
Before Moria, the traits I liked to use on Dhrun were mostly from the Mischief Maker line, which didn’t exist at the time. During Moria, I came around to the Gambler line, after various tweaks which improved viability. Now I’m thinking of trying out the Quiet Knife!
Daerellean reach level 15 a few days ago, and I received mail directing me to Hengstacer Farm, where horses are available. All my other characters had to wait until level 35 to get a horse, but that seems like an eternity now! Fortunately, the F2P change brought some other options to horse ownership.
Dhrun reached the point in the Mirkwood storyline where the “Strike Against Dannenglor” skirmish opens up. Fortunately I had done lots of skirmishes and had leveled up an archer, because the skirmish is challenging. Two encounter mobs spawned while I was there, Rimdeloth and Ghostfang, and I was able to defeat both.
