Silence from Codemasters & Warden levling

September 30, 2010

The silence from Codemasters is deafening right now. There is a thread now 193 pages long in the EU forums, mostly containing very upset players. The most upsetting thing is not the delay in itself, but the lack of communication from Codemasters, which has lead to a number of different theories on why there is a delay in the first place. Since I am a subscriber, and will let my account just roll into VIP when (if?) F2P comes, i don’t really care that much about the delay. Sure, it would be nice to see the new area, but it’ll come eventually anyway. We did get the welcome back week, at least until recently, and that gave me the perfect opportunity to power-level my Warden.

The Warden class is really cool to play, for several reasons. First of all, there’s a lot of gambits, and even if they can be hard to remember at times, it’s a fun way to test out different ways to play. All the self-healing and morale-leeching gambits really help when taking on high-morale bosses, and the DPS on the spear-gambits actually isn’t that bad. Sure, a Warden can’t keep up with the traditional DPS-classes when it comes to DPS, but for a tank, it’s outstanding. I have now hit 44 on my Warden, and I’m planning on moving into Eregion very soon, first of all to collect the last pages for my book-deeds, but also to get ready for Moria.

On my journey to level 44 I’ve had a lot of help from different places around the web. The obvious ones are the Lore-book and the Lotro Wiki. For deeds/traits/virtues I’ve spent a fair bit of time at mmorsel’s Virtue Finder and the Virtues page at BurgZerg. But most important of all i think would be docholiday’s excellent Warden-blog.

Sammath Gûl

September 6, 2010

Finally!

Since most players in my kin (including myself) is casual players it can be quite hard to get a good group for the 6 and 12-man instances in LOTRO, but yesterday we did get a nice group to do Sammath Gûl. It was my first time and I really liked it.

It also meant i could now get my final rad-piece and I’m now ready for the greater challenges ahead. I also got the Bregloch earring, which sadly enough is really nice compared to my other crappy jewelery, I really have to do something about that.

Besides SG there has been a lot of deed-grinding going on for me lately. Trying to get those virtues up a notch, and fixing my legendary traits. My Hunter is now actually starting to look like a pretty solid build and all I really need is some new jewelery. A second or first age bow would also be nice of course, but my third age will be fine for now.

What a wonderful class!

January 11, 2010

Ok, so I’ve tried every class in LOTRO except burg, and with my Hunter now at 65, I had to choose wich alt to level up.

Not an easy decision, but one that had to be made. I finally picked my Captain (at level 28 at the time). The Captain is an awesome class to play. Solo play is great fun, and quite easy as long as you don’t start hitting the red mobs. In a fellowship you are extremely adaptable, being able to both tank and heal, or just DPS.

I have now hit 38, and I’m taking a break from levelling to complete som low-level-area deeds. I’ve already finished up everything i Bree-land, almost everything in the Shire, and am now working on the deeds in Ered Luin. After that, I’ll go through the lone Lands and North Downs finishing deeds before I resume the hunt for 65.

I intend to make this a solid build, with a wide variety of level 10 virtues to choose from. All the race and class traits unlocked for use and ofcourse all the legendary traits too. It will take many hours to get the perfect build, but as I already have the Hunter at 65, I’m under no pressure, I can still do endgame content with my kin.

Is i crazy to want the perfect build?

Determined to kill crawlers

November 17, 2009

Let my Guardian gain some rest xp yesterday, and instead finished two trollshaw-deeds with the Hunter. The Worm-deed was pretty easy to complete, but the crawler-deed took ages. Anyway, now it’s done, and I’ve maxed out my Determination.

I’ll try to level my Guardian tonight, if nothing else comes up. I’ve also decided to use Destiny Points to buy the xp buff. I never use them for anything else, so they might aswell come to good use there.

Do the deed

November 11, 2009

Continued on my deeds yesterday, so far it’s been pretty easy. I’ve done deeds in Bree-land, Shire and yesterday I wrapped up the ones in Ered Luin. Now comes the time for a bit harder work. A lot more beast to slay in the lone-lands, trollshaws etc to get the work done.

Much thanks to the deeds I’m now getting really close to my target of 4k Morale on the Hunter. Just a few more levels on  Determination and Justice to go, and i’ll be there.

But I must also get to work with my Lore-Master and Captain. They are now at levels 21 and 25 if my memory serves me right. And their proffessions are most important to my other alts (jeweller and metalsmith). Also, I must take a look at my economical situation, i’m getting quite low on cash on all my chars.
