  1. just been to nan wathren in the north downs and the mobs there are more of a challenge. the defiler still goes down way too easy tho. I have been able to use all my skills to get the mobs down (level 24 now fighting 3k elite mobs) Did 1,1k crit damage with thrash tier 3. I think this is just slightly OP
  2. I came back to check out the Beorning class. It's actually pretty good fun, extremely powerful however. I'm the only Beorning in the Kin at the moment (one guy is going to try it when they fix the mac store bug) There have been quite a few running around on Laurelin (a few even bought the gift of the valar to start at level 50). When I first logged in there were perhaps a good couple of dozen of them in Archet, which is why I decided to head to Celondim and level there
  3. OK, just back from a long sabbatical from all things LOTRO and checking out the forums. There is no way anyone can say exactly what would have happened if Scotland had voted yes. There was a great deal of pish on both sides, We voted no so that's the end of it. I would have enjoyed the banter, in the run up to the vote, in this thread if I had seen it. I did notice a certain bias, but that's life....

  5. The two are tied together. The Japanese at the time were very much into the 'Samurai' thing. I.e. to the death/no surrender. They saw the Allies as less than human for surrendering, which is why the treated them as they did. The bomb made the Japanese realise that surrender *was* an option as they would be wiped out otherwise. They were all for fighting to the death and would have until the whole of the Japanese islands were taken, Those bombs saved lives. Unfortunately, as often happens, civilians took the brunt of the devastation. The war would have gone on for years imo. The Japanese emperor at the time was considered a god to everyone and renounced his divinity to ensure surrender. War is hell...
  6. I know I don't post much these days, but I still lurk a fair bit. I'm getting to the stage where I log in and go 'Meh' My mini main is level 96 and I just can't bring myself to log in and level to 100. Used to do instances every night with kin runs a couple of times a week. That was up until a couple of months ago. I tried the secret world and think it's really great but I'm just tired of the whole MMO thing atm. I've right into some of the lego games recently, playing them duo with my daughter or son and having a blast. I may come back at some point as I still have LOTRO installed. It's not missing from my life in any way that it used to
  7. Nailed it.... Double the work for the same pay

    Pishin' down is the word I'd describe it as. rain hit about noon yesterday then the fog rolled in. Glad I didn't take ma coat off
  9. Sorry, just trying to adjust myself to the way they talk down there (Wife from Dudley, me from Edinburgh) If we order subway here, I order, as the lass behind the counter can't understand her. and Vica Versa down there... for your delictation...
  10. http://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/news/politics/ukip-poster-next-to-no-poles-required-tent-ad-1-3392092 we got this two minutes from my work. and it's still there (saw it this morning) I'm 'emmigrating' to Brum in the next few months, maybe I'll need a passport to get back to Scotland on visits soon
  11. you definitely keep all your weaponsmith/guild xp
  12. I didn't watch the whole thing so not sure if this was covered... Is the TP cost per character or account wide?
  13. For me, It's the old barrows 6-man, back in the day when I was a total noob... It was the first ever group content I'd ever run and the feeling of being totally overwhelmed with what was going on actually had the adrenaline going throughout that very first run. I can't even remember if we managed to finish it, it was that long ago, but the memory of that feeling I had has stuck with me. It made me realise that there was a whole lot more to the game than just levelling a character. I still laugh to myself when I think back about how I saw the first boss and said 'he has how much morale?!?' Good times!!!
  14. I didn't even press play and the damn thing is stuck in my head
  15. Just surprised that Ricky (as opposed to the other one) actually said something funny for once in his life
  16. It's just before 8am here, kids been up since 6.30am, which is a lot later than expected! Kids are 15, 12 and 4. The reaction from the wee man was predictably OTT! Family meal today which I'll be cooking which I'm actually looking forward to. Love cooking for others, hate cooking just for myself. Have a great day everyone
  17. One thing I have noticed, is that folk that haven't bought the expansion are grinding levels with Sammy/thadur and sch/lib now. Before, it used to be skirms. LLF sammy85 for levelling is a regular thing on Laurelin atm.
  18. My view: best article ever... Wifes view: someone really needs to get a life
  19. 3/2/1 Artistically, It looks very,very nice but the design is just horrible. Every town is a maze to get lost in and Helms deep is the worst. Constantly using the map to try to figure out how to get from A to B is plain annoying. Music is below par but that horrible main theme does seem to fit for some reason... There is an area (I forget where, it's fairly early on) that is ripped straight from one of the crafting instances in hytbold. My mini while fishing in WS (err, dissonance) pulls out glowing fish Content is a lot of the same rehashed stuff with the odd new thing thrown in. Had a fair few bug on me, still can't get one npc to appear to hand in his quest. Would have been nice to have an epic finish to the Helms Deep story (I wasn't expecting anything like the Jackson movie with a horde running straight down a hill, but they *could* have done something I think....) Gameplay is utterly OP on every class. Two guys in my kin duo'd a skirm raid on level last night and they hadn't got much decent gear at all. Did a full skirm raid today with 12 and it was a total yawn fest with waves of mobs (Gondamon) dropping in seconds. Did a mini only run of sch/lib and it took us less than 10 mins to do both challenge. Heavy armour types don't seem to be in great demand anymore for 6 mans either. the DPS is so huge now that everyone just goes in to blast through stuff. Expect major QQ 'over there' when turbine nerf DPS soon. My mini is doing 20k devs with half teal/half purple gear, hate to think what it'll be when I fully gear up. OP DPS is a regular conversation in our Kinchat. There are three or four landscape quests which state in the story that they are 'meant to be a challenge' to complete (like the one in mirkwood). Sorry, but when you easily munch 150k mobs solo in seconds, that's not what it is! Class changes are just a total pain, I just try to work out how to get as many of the skills for old rotations as I can with a few new skills added in. Seemed like a change they came up with when they couldn't think of anything else to do. Big Battles are too long with you just blasting away or kicking ladders between objectives. I've encountered a fair few bugs as well. Seals nerf is annoying too. none for 3/6's. only from raids now. each of the HD jewellery pieces costs 188(?) seals. Haven't done a BB 12 man yet but assume they drop seals?
  20. The gambling thing started with the lootboxes and when they found they could get away with that "spend only 95TP to see what you have in the box!", the hobbit presents was just a natural progression... I should think about changing my sig now
  21. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPm6CheT6rs Can't beat it! if we are going down the rude route... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEe55NxFSSU can anyone share the secret of embedding the videos? oh, and if you are Scottish, this'll get you going! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2dCMDNqE5Y
  22. It's a proxy problem. Had the same thing myself. Go to the options menu in the launcher and select the proxy tab. Select the no proxy button and you're good to go...
  23. all I'm getting is patch server timeouts just now on my main pc, the others are patching happily (wife and daughter both play) Typical I'll be waiting for ages to get in when they'll be happily* killing stuff *if they can work out the skill trees of course
  24. From what has been said over there in various threads, the tokens get automatically exchanged to marks when the servers go up after the update. The only way for that not to happen is if they delay the expansion.
