#lotro another lore-master

I’m still slightly obsessed with the legendary servers – I think it’s down to the general business of the areas, knowing that there is a very reachable cap on play and the infectious enthusiasm of the players.  I’ve also got my characters ‘right’ this time.  Names, origins, races, crafting and suchlike.  At times, I wonder…

#lotro Dwarven Realms

Screenshots of Dwarven settlements from Lord of the Rings Online Blue Mountains:  known as Ered Luin in Sindarin.  The settlement in lotro is known as Thorin’s Hall, governed by Thráin and Thorin III (son of Dáin) Mines of Moria – Moria is Sindarin for Black Abyss.  Also known as Khazad-dûm in Khuzdul (meaning Dwarves’ Delvings/Mansions)…

#lotro hunter mirkwood outfit

I wanted an outfit for my Mirkwood elf for when she visits Felegoth, I wanted her to fit in and look like she belonged.  I’m not convinced I managed that but what I did manage was to basically recreate my Minstrel’s outfit… doh! anyway, I liked the shots so… Back: Cloak of the Wind-Singer (dyed…

#lotro Lore-master solo PVE build (U27)

NB.  This is a compilation of the advice I have found in various places and the things that seem to work for me.  I’ve not had any problems soloing (including resource instances and similar in Mordor / Grey Mountains) with this setup.  Having said that, there is always room for tweaking and improvement – if…

#lotro legendary server

I was a little sceptical at first, I wasn’t sure what the point was when, theoretically, you could do the same thing on the normal servers.  I had a fear of missing out though, so I decided to roll a character and check it out.  Fortunately, I waited until this morning to do so and…

#lotro U23: notes on solo gear

I have to admit, I don’t like the gearing with this update – it seems slightly unnecessarily confusing and the costs for crafted gear are, in my opinion, not really worth it.  With that said, it is what it is, so these are notes on the gear I am going for with minimum effort /…

what I’m doing…

Just a quick update of what I’m up to Playing: mostly Lord of the Rings Online.  Thoroughly enjoying the new update, though gearing up seems unnecessarily confusing.  I’ve recently remembered that although I finished the Legacy of the Dragonborn (and finished the two Skyrim DLCs for the first time), I didn’t complete either of the…
