5½ Years of screenshots

July 13, 2014

So thanks to CSTM’s facebook page, I found this, a collection of screenshots from Lotro, all the way back from early beta.

I started playing Lotro in January 2009, and has since then managed to snap almost 1000 screenshots. I recently went through all my old computers/harddrives, to make sure none of my old screenshots would get lost.

So why not share a bunch of them?

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.

Sword Halls

December 23, 2009

My kinship has way too many hunters, me being one of them. So getting a good group for SH can be hard. But I’ve run it twice now, with a group of three hunters(!) and it’s not been so bad.

The first two bosses are usually no big problem. So here comes a small “guide” for thoose who wants to try it out with three hunters.

  • Stay in strength stance
  • Bring power pots
  • The hunter that gets aggro – kite
  • The hunters that don’t have aggro – DPS
  • When you get aggro – start running
  • When you’re nearing the end of the fight – Burn hot & Heart seeker

The only thing you’ll really be missing (except for some descent healing) will be the lack of interuptions and corruption removals (before the target hits <50% morale)…

Make sure you go in as much buffed as possible, try to get a captain to give you some buffs, and bring food. Also bring fear and wound pots. And ofcourse, power and morale pots.
