I haven’t been good about playing the various MMOs I have. On the one hand I want to fix that, but on the other, I know this will self-correct. One weekend I’ll just feel like playing some other game and it will catch my attention for a while.
In the meantime, I’m having tons of fun in LoTRO!

I tried a few of the defensive skirmishes, which plays nicely to someone new to MoNF. In a skirmish I get my soldier, and in a defensive skirmish I have NPC help (they have to survive, but that usually isn’t a problem) too, plus the enemies naturally bunch up.
I found out that defending an area and lighting it on fire with ISG is fantastic!

Aillas is currently working through volume 3, and skirmishing. This is a good time to try a different build.

I bounced around between characters, advancing them each a little bit.

I had some time to advance my Lore-master Aillas in the storyline, and completed 3 skirmishes: Protectors of Thangúlhad, Assault on the Necromancer’s Gate, and Assault on the Ringwraith’s Lair. I finished them, but it was ugly.

Level 20 was a blur on both my Rune-keeper and Captain. Literally. All I did was the Skirmish Tutorial and one skirmish, and it took me from about 10% into level 20 all the way to level 21.

I played my captain and rune-keeper over the past few days. Both were stuck at level 17/18 and I decided to get them to level 20.

I’m not normally into cosmetic items. I make reasonably “attractive” character models, or at least avoid really ugly ones – after all I gotta spend hours staring at my char while playing, they need to look decent – but since I typically play in 3rd person with the camera hovering a ways back, I’m not seeing a screenfull of the char. They usually have a cloak so I really just see some flapping cloth, when I’m not otherwise fighting or crafting or traveling, etc.
But then I did something and saw my Lore-master Aillas wearing his random collection of quest rewards and/or crafted gear, and it looked bad. Terrible actually!
