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.

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.
My guardian Naerys advanced in the Moria story line, helping locate Nâr-khelab, the Heart of Fire, a long lost Dwarven forge. Unfortunately Zigilburk, a legendary mithril axe, has not been located yet.
I decided to adventure with Dhrun, who has been neglected lately in favor of my guardian Naerys and rune-keeper Daerellaen. I plan to let Daerellaen “rest” for another week or so, to allow rest/bonus xp to build up and ideally max out, which will give a nice extra chunk of xp for every mob slain for a quest or otherwise.
Despite planning on playing some Guild Wars, I decided to enter Middle Earth again. I game for fun and I felt like playing LoTRO!
