    Open tapping creates stalkers.

    So yesterday I was quite happily questing on my own in the misty mountains and all of a sudden I had this person latch onto me from Gloin's camp and follow me around. It was all quite disconcerting. She/he didn't say anything to me. No "Hi, do you want to quest together?", just silence. I thought they'd get bored after a while and go do something else, but nope. Still following me. So naturally, I thought maybe they needed help on a quest or something and for some reason couldn't ask me. I asked, politely, why they were following (I'm not opposed to have a quest buddy, I'd just prefer them to ask me first!), and got the answer "Because of open tapping". I didn't exactly know what it meant, but as I understand it now, any person who contributes damage (no matter how much) gets the xp for killing a mob. (And loot aswell?) Hmm.

    Heheheh. Is there anything I can do as a man loremaster though? I would have liked an invisibility spell by now (you know, loremasters supposedly being masters of lore), but nope

    I'll have to get used to it, then. I like going at my own pace though. I don't want to feel rushed by someone jumping around me whenever I stop to have a sip of beer.

    Are you kidding me?

    There's an idea. Seems like alot of work though. Think I'm gonna pass for now.

    I would make one, but I'm not touching that insecure login with a barge pole.

    Yeah, It's the whole attitude of Turbine. I'd have respect for them if they could take criticism and people could voice their opinions, but it seems they're working overtime on stamping out all negativity because they know they're doing badly.

    WTF. You got banned for that? That forum's like communist China. Shame... I had a good laugh reading your posts on there, Doro!

    Hi MERP guy. Best of luck and everything. WB are... well, I don't know the polite word for them.

    You know how I know Turbine is failing?

    It's ludicrous that they go searching other forums for "wrongdoings". That Sapience guy must have some serious issues for him to be that vengeful. Strikes me as someone that's incredibly insecure.

    Does that get a prize?

    Wow... From what I've read and heard about that guy I wonder why he's still employed in that position. Yeah, the best chance of success would be to write to them, with various evidence enclosed for best effect.

    Simple truths about Riders of Rohan

    Hold the phone. I thought you were being sarcastic. If I was mistaken I do apologise.

    Simple truths about Riders of Rohan

    Thanks! I literally have no idea what that means.

    Thanks for that, guys. I understand a lot better now. So the game's in decline and they're in a desperate struggle for money. I've had a good look through the store, and many of the things on there are really unreasonably priced, I would guess so that they're more likely to be getting people's real money that way because you can grind for TB points in game. Wouldn't it make sense to have some items that you can only buy with real money? I mean, I'm not going to buy a fancy mount for 2000TB points, but I might buy it for something equivalent to 200-300TB points of my own money. Just thinking out loud really... So to speak.

    Thanks for the welcomes. Even if the game is past it's prime, I'm enjoying it far more than I ever did with WoW or SWTOR. Community is really friendly and I'm in a great Kinship... I'll savour it while I can, then. If they go out of business would another company bother with it? Edit: It's puzzling how the company made this great game, won awards for the expansions etc and have now gone into this downward spiral. Can somebody explain for me?

    PvP tips for a noob

    Thanks for the link, that's really helpful! Yeah, I started playing as a reaver and messed about with the other classes too, but I'd got further with it than the others so I just carried on. Thanks! Yeah, I've been buying those audacity things as I've been going along. I've got 4 ranks in it, but I'll prioritise getting some more. I didn't really have much idea about the opposing ranks other than the higher ones have fancier looking colours, so I'll go for the weakest of the herd. Like a wolf or something. In groups it's quite an art charging in and out to deliver the killing blow. I even bumped into my kin leader last night and ran him through! That was pretty funny. Serves him right for being a minstrel. ;P

    PvP tips for a noob

    Hi all, New to the forums and new to LOTRO. I've been playing for about a month and a half now and I've got my LM to level 41 so I decided to have a break and play Creep side for abit. I was wondering if anyone could give me some general PvP tips as well as some pointers for playing a reaver? I've got to rank 4 now, but I still get ganked all the time (usually by burgs). The problem I'm having is that I keep running into people who are really experienced and have great gear and everything. They literally run rings around me, and I'm lucky if I get them to 2/3 health before i die. I'm fumbling around with wasd moving around and trying to hit my abilities at the same time while they make a mockery of my clumsy efforts. I swear some of them must be using their abilities with mind impulses, not keybinds. I know the basics: Keep them snared, dotted and debuffed... but not really any tactics to fight every class. I've had a look at some guides. It seems pretty overwhelming though. On my LM I have a staggering number of abilites already and to have a working knowledge of every class's capabilites seems impossible. Anyways, enough of my QQ'ing... I hope you guys can help me!

    New Store Item: Hobby Horse

    Pretty new to to the game here. I raised my eyebrow at the prices on the store when I first started. What is it, 595tb points for a bag? 2000tb for a class mount? That's £6 and £20 where I'm from, respectively... Quite astonishing. This is just hilarious though. I'll keep an eye open for this on my server.

    New player here. I started playing after I saw it on steam. Subscribing now too. Had no idea about turbine's position until now. Real shame as I love this game. If they go bust LOTRO will be no more, right? I really want to see Gondor and Mordor expansions
