About to start my 10-day trial. :]
[QUOTE=Dutch;15356428]Haha. Also, anyone know some good recipes I should look into for an artisan tailor? I can make some pretty great stuff, but a lot of it requires crazy crystals that I can never get my hands on for a reasonable price. Excluding that stuff, the rest of the armor I can currently make is average, so the equipment I'm using is much better.[/QUOTE] I'm not a tailor myself, but I think you will make something called "radiant" armour later on for 45+ characters, and they're pretty damn sweet. And I'm guessing you're talking about Beryl Shards or Adamant shards. Here's a list on where to get those shards.

I just got the game about 2 weeks ago, I'm really into the Lord of the Rings books and movies(though definitely not as good as the books). I play on the Brandywine Server and I have a level 24:( dwarf guardian named Gerinian.
You must admit that the game is a tad bit more canon than the movies. :v:
[QUOTE=Tomberto;15455297]I play on the Brandywine Server and I have a level 24:( dwarf guardian named Gerinian.[/QUOTE] I play on Brandywine, too. We need a Facepunch kinship somewhere. Also, thanks for that list of where to get the Adamant shards, I'll be in the Trollshaws anyways so I could pick one up. EDIT: but it looks like everything on that list is a rare mob :C
[QUOTE=Kazumi;15457859]You must admit that the game is a tad bit more canon than the movies. :v:[/QUOTE] Yeah the game adds a lot more depth to the movies, I mean Tom (w/e his last name is) the guy who is in 'charge' of the Old Forest is not even mentioned in the movies. And it adds Angmar, duh, which they never really talk about in the movies.
Isn't Lotro more based off the books than the movies? And the story only goes up to the Fellowship of the Ring, including the Hobbit.
Well I'm not very far into the game yet, I'm not sure. Different topic: I wish more people on Facepunch played Lotro, it gets boring when theres not very man people posting.
Hey, if you guys want I can setup a Facepunch kinship. I'm a level 26 Captain in Brandywine.
I'm a level 39 Hunter on Brandywine. but i'm poor :c
I'd join with an alt or two if it wasn't for me playing on the EU version of the game. [QUOTE=Dutch;15491258]Isn't Lotro more based off the books than the movies? And the story only goes up to the Fellowship of the Ring, including the Hobbit.[/QUOTE] They don't have the license for Silmarillion [I]yet[/I]. But they try to include everything that is mentioned. Fornost and Forochel for example.
[QUOTE=Schmoe222;15494451]Hey, if you guys want I can setup a Facepunch kinship. I'm a level 26 Captain in Brandywine.[/QUOTE] We'd need at least 6 people to keep it going. And even if it is a facepunch kinship, well I'd call it something different, The Legion of Facepunch really doesn't fit to well. Edit: I'll start a thread to see if we can get enough people for the kinship.
You can always fill the amount of needed members with alts. That's what me and 4 other friends did when we started hobbit alts on Laurelin and made our own kin.
By the by, if you need money, turn to your craft skills! A forester can pump out a full stack of treated leather for bunches of money. Of course, you'll need 100 hides. A prospector can also smelt a stack of ore for sale that goes for a LOT of money.
Im thinking of starting this again, It whas pretty fun but all my friends played WoW.
Me and a few others have just started playing this, although just on the trial we're planning to start paying around the 5th of august. Were on the EU client in snowbourn.
Welcome back week (EU I guess) [quote]We are delighted to inform you that your account for The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™ will be re-activated for a Welcome Back Week starting 3rd August, 2009. [/quote] I've been wanting to retry Lotro for awhile but I hope the welcome back week includes the expansion...
Is the combat anything like D&DO. I'm only asking because it's made by the same company. I like the combat in D&D online. It's fun. You know what, I think I'm gonna try to trial now. For LoTRO, I mean.

I tried to get back into this last month, it failed to grip me. Anyone want an account with the expansion for like.. £10?
I'd consider subscribing to this, but I always have trouble convincing myself to join MMOs later in their lives.

Downloading the trial right now, (yes, aware this is a bump, although the first page has lots of old threads so why not). Just asking, how alive is this game?
Just started with a 15 Hobbit Burglar on Landroval. I love how theres so many titles. Awesome game so far in my opinion. [QUOTE=Ibutsu;18641361]Downloading the trial right now, (yes, aware this is a bump, although the first page has lots of old threads so why not). Just asking, how alive is this game?[/QUOTE] It really depends on which world you play on. Oh and SoM is going to be released tomorrow so surely there'll be alot of active players.
What details do I use to login? I tried the details I use to login to my account management and it won't work.
