I played it back in 2006, and after a 4 year's break, I returned and played for around 3 months. The game has a lot more things to do; achievements that actually make sense, tons of quests and so forth. Only bad thing that turned out to be a bit of a game killer for me was that you can solo pretty much EVERYTHING. And if you go to an area that is unlockable by micro-transactions, you can be quite sure it has 80% less people questing than open areas, which made playing even more lonely. It's a breath of fresh air after WoW, but I guess I'm growing out of MMOs bit by bit. Also, the graphics sure are pretty, but a bit plastic.
6.7gb download... Any torrent running? Also, it isn't warez if it's a legal torrent...
[QUOTE=Loli;28025608]6.7gb download... Any torrent running? Also, it isn't warez if it's a legal torrent...[/QUOTE] Obviously. There should be one if there is on the website, either use the P2P downloader which is the default, it's pretty fast.
Is there any way I can change my face in this game? I'm ugly as cunt.
[QUOTE=booster;28087082]Is there any way I can change my face in this game? I'm ugly as cunt.[/QUOTE] Nope.
So I got a level 10 Guardian. Decent game so far!
Well Since the game is now free-to-play I guess I'll give it a go. What would be the best class for a Soloer? It's because I live in a time-zone that 8+ hours So i doubt I'll find people to quest with.
2 1/2 bars away from hitting 20 and getting that Undying title!

Very good damage and enough crowd control.

However I'm fairly sure you need to have purchased Mines of Moria for access to Warden (and Runekeeper)... so with that in mind I would say Guardian if you're looking for an easy ride, Loremaster if you're ready to do some extreme crowd control in order to only have to fight one/two enemies at a time and Champion if you're looking for some kind of balance between ease of use and fun. Although lategame I'm fairly sure most classes can handle themselves solo.
lotro is not even fun
[QUOTE=blown25;28146064]lotro is not even fun[/QUOTE] What a valid and interesting contribution that was.
[QUOTE=blown25;28146064]lotro is not even fun[/QUOTE] Clearly fact and not opinion. I've been playing it for 4 years, I must hate fun!
Been playing Monster Play pretty heavily over the last few days, it really is exhilarating compared to normal questing. Constant action, a lot of killing and a lot being sieged.
Do you get EXP from PvMP? Level 25 soon, got my Undying title but I'm currently being foreveralone because nobody wants to do skirmishes :(
[QUOTE=BrokenSanity;28176473]Been playing Monster Play pretty heavily over the last few days, it really is exhilarating compared to normal questing. Constant action, a lot of killing and a lot being sieged.[/QUOTE] Indeed. It can be quite fun. Too bad most people are obsessed over seeing their yellow bars fill up instead of having good fights out there. Most people just sit in NPCs all day. (At least on US servers)

With them there's no conventional levelling as you start at level 65, instead there's ranks and Destiny points that you spent on traiting up your Monster, and buying new skills. To gain ranks you get infamy for every freep you kill or help kill, and reputation can be gained and lost from killing and dying. Fairly sure reputation is just e-peen though.

Of course there's still a fair bit of standing around waiting for the other side to make a move, but this is normally brought to an end when reinforcements arrive for either the Freeps or the Monsters.
Anybody around the 25ish level on EU Snowbourne? Could use a Skirmish partner!
Decided to reinstall, my 50 captain still there, no idea what I'm doing or where I'm upto. so I exited game :derp:

It's pathetic. You lose nothing from death.
Still nobody around the 26-ish levels willing to do a few skirmishes? EU Snowbourne.
Damn, no FPers on Eldar?
Wow, everything becomes extremely boring once you've hit like lvl36. You have nothing to do anymore.
[QUOTE=booster;28206061]Wow, everything becomes extremely boring once you've hit like lvl36. You have nothing to do anymore.[/QUOTE] It's mostly just doing quests till you get to Moria. The fun started there for me.

Although I recently subbed as the game really is worth it. Besides for that £9.18 you get around 30 quids worth of stuff unlocked on your first sub (Permanent riding skill, traits, unlimited gold cap etc).

Decided to try the game out, it seems pretty quiet around the starting areas. or maybe it's my server, it's a UK one, people have jobs and that. Is it worth carrying on for free, it's unlikely that I'll get much money soon

[QUOTE=BrokenSanity;28212529]It's free, there's no reason it wouldn't be worth it.[/QUOTE] Thats what I realised after playing for 4 hours so far today. Anyone play on the uk servers?
