Well, I'm in "Eldar (EN)" around Bree or Forgotten Cottage most of the times trying to grind my way to Radagast Brown. If you see anyone named Andrastalla, do have a talk. Also, if anyone under level 5 needs some hardcore grinding I'm up for help. I'll blow you through the Barrows.
Mostly for Eurodudes: [quote][B]1. What’s happening?[/B] Turbine is taking over full operations of The Lord of the Rings Online™ throughout Europe starting June 1, 2011. We’re merging the US and EU services into one mega-service we’re calling the LOTRO Global Service. [B]2. Will there be any downtime during the transition?[/B] Yes. We do expect there to be a limited service interruption during the changeover. Additional details, including specific information about downtime or service interruptions will be addressed as we get closer to the official take over date. [B]3. I play on the EU service today. Do I need to do anything?[/B] Yes. All current players of the LOTRO service operated by Codemasters will need to migrate their account to the new global service. This simple one-time process will allow current players to easily move game access and characters to the global service. [B]4. Should I create a Turbine Account now?[/B] No. Please wait for the official migration process to start. If you create an account on the Turbine service prior to the launch of the global service you will not be able to merge that account and your Codemasters account. [B]5. I’m an EU player who already has both Turbine and Codemasters accounts. Is it possible to merge them after the migration? [/B] No. Your accounts will remain separate. [B]6. I play on Turbine’s service today and do not have any accounts on the Codemasters service. Do I need to do anything? Will anything be different for me?[/B] Players on the current North American service do not need to take any action. In general, your play experience should remain the same. [B]7. What will happen to my characters and items?[/B] After you have completed the account migration process, all of your characters and items will be available to you. You need only log in to the game and they’ll be there waiting for you, right where you left them (even the server names are staying the same). [B]8. What about my billing information? Will you migrate that too? [/B] No. we will not automatically access or transfer your private billing information as part of this process. During the migration you will be asked to provide your billing information to us. [B]9. Are there any differences in the VIP programs between Turbine and Codemasters? [/B] The benefits remain the same. Players may also purchase discounted multi-month subscription packages and we are also offering special promotions for some plans during the migration period – please be sure to check the migration site for details. [B]10. I have a lifetime account with Codemasters. Will Turbine honor it?[/B] All existing Codemasters Lifetime accounts will be converted to Turbine Lifetime accounts. [B]11. Will I lose my existing Points or will they be exchanged for Turbine points?[/B] Any points on your account at the time of migration will transfer over to the Turbine service. [B]12. I am a VIP, will my subscription transfer?[/B] Any VIP time you have remaining after migration will be honored. After that period you will lose VIP status unless you update your billing information and select a subscription plan. [B]13. Will I need to download the US client to play after June 1?[/B] No. When the servers come back up your existing client will patch up to the global version of the game. Once the patching process is complete and you have followed the migration instructions you will be able to log into the game normally. [B]14. Will the EU servers be merged into the US servers?[/B] No. All existing servers will become part of the Turbine service. After patching your client all existing EU servers will appear in the launcher along with all of the current US servers. Players will then be able to create characters on any server they wish. [B]15. Will Turbine continue to support language specific servers?[/B] Yes. Servers currently designated as FR or DE speaking servers will remain as they are. [B]16. Will Turbine support European payment options?[/B] Yes. We are expanding our current billing system to accept many new payment methods. [B]17. Will boxed products or Game Time Cards (GTC) published by Codemasters continue to work after the migration?[/B] No. Due to technical incompatibilities between the systems Turbine will not be able to honor any Codemasters GTC or Codemasters retail product keys. [B]18. What Languages will be available in the global game client?[/B] The Lord of the Rings Online™ is available in English, French (Français), and German (Deutsch). The game will default to your currently selected language. If you wish to play in a different language, simply select your preferred language from the launcher. Note: If you are using a DE or FR version of Windows then your game may automatically select DE or FR to match your OS. [B]19. Will EU players be able to use the my.lotro.com site and features such as the lottery after the change?[/B] Yes! Once the transfer is complete and your characters are part of the Turbine service, the my.lotro.com site will start collecting data about your characters and adding them to the site. You will then be able to use all of the my.lotro.com features including blogs, character panels, and lotteries. Please note that your character history will start from the time you join the Turbine service. [B]20. I'm active on the Codemasters forums, will my posts be copied over to the US forums?[/B] No posts, accounts, or other information will be migrated from the LOTRO EU forums. We encourage players to move their guides, tips, tricks, etc over to the Official Lorebook, and the new global community after June 1, so all players may benefit. [B]21. What will happen to any auctions/bids I have in progress at the time of the transition?[/B] We encourage all European players to schedule their auctions to expire prior to June 1, 2011. Due to the nature of the transition we cannot guarantee these items will be available after the transfer. [B]22. Will Turbine support existing RP rules servers after the June 1 transition?[/B] Turbine will continue to provide Role Play support on the existing RP designated servers at the same level currently provided by Codemasters. [B]23. What does this mean for the existing US Role Play community, specifically Landroval?[/B] We will not be enforcing role play rules or adding official role play support to any of the existing US servers. However, the Landroval server will be designated [EN-RE] – Role Play Encouraged. [B]24. Role Play Supported and Role Play Encouraged servers after June 1, 2011[/B] [EN-RE] Landroval (Role Play Encouraged) [EN-RP] Laurelin (Role Play Supported) [DE-RP] Belegaer (Role Play Supported) [FR-RP] Estel (Role Play Supported) [/quote]

Hey Kazumi, you've got a max level hunter? I've gotten back to this game after a full year of not playing and my armour, virtues, traits and stuff might be out of date. If you've got a hunter, or know about hunters, mind filling me in on what I should get?(armour, traits etc..) Thanks.
I don't have a Hunter myself, although I know a bit about them. New skills are easy, just go check your trainer. One of the skills are Blood Arrow, or something similar. High damage crit skill with about 10s cooldown, costs morale to use instead of power. It is still recommended that you use at least 4 Bowmaster traits (red I think) because they up your damage something fierce. Especially now with the revamped Heart-Seeker skill (lower cooldown and only 2s induction). Virtues pretty much the same; valour, determination, honesty at the core. As for sets, the best one that is easiest to get is still the Moria set from the clustered instances. 4 pieces are enough. Although through the epic quests in Enedwaith there are opportunities to change some of it for good single-parts. If you're the raiding type there has come a new set with Enedwaith in the 12-man raid and there's basically two versions of it. One is the easy-to-get one, I think you can get it by just gathering tokens from the new instances in the 'In Their Absence' quest line (2x 3-man, 2x-6-man). You can get a better version of that armour set by playing the raid. [editline]29th May 2011[/editline] Trait and legacy-changes you can find here: [url]http://www.lotro.com/gameinfo/devdiaries/1031-update-2-hunter-developer-diary[/url]
I got the skills quite some time ago, when I logged to check what changed. I had those traits slotted already and I have the 4 of the Moria armour set. I like to run a raid once in a while but not constantly. I mostly want to get into PvP. Thanks.
This game is by far the most fun I've had with an MMO. Been playing it almost non-stop for two weeks now.
European servers will be going down tomorrow for around 2-3 days due to migration to Turbine. Just thought I'd let you guys know. I hope nothing goes wrong. :ohdear:
I'm scared. :(

A lot of Hunters prefer it.
Hehe, ok. Yeah I don't know a lot about the traits on hunters. Even less now after they changed some of them. And now the European servers went down, starting the migration across the pond.

Should i start playing this game? Im not sure though cause i hate playing games alone. (HINT HINT)
[QUOTE=EliteMohawk;30164689]Should i start playing this game? Im not sure though cause i hate playing games alone. (HINT HINT)[/QUOTE] its fun till you have to pay for most quests
as in real money or in-game money?
You can technically get all the quests without paying a dime.
Thank god.
[QUOTE=MrParalegal;30166262]its fun till you have to pay for most quests[/QUOTE] Quest packs aren't that much money.
I'm installing this right now, and it will be the first time I play it. Anything I should now before people in-game will call me an idiot for not nowing the fuck I'm doing? :v: [editline]1st June 2011[/editline] Fuck, wich realm should I play on?
From my knowledge there are a couple of facepunchers on Brandywine. Nah, it's pretty easy to understand. Just pay attention to traits and how they work once you get to like level 10 or something.
Migration has begun. Here's your link: [url]https://cogaccounts.codemasters.com/lotrotransfer/Home/Index/en[/url] Don't forget to start the game and let it update properly!
I made a Dwarf Champion and Im like level 6 or 7, I dont understand very much and the UI is ugly as hell. Im to used to play WoW...
I'm currently struggling with having my account transferred. Getting this strange error on Step 2.

I fucking love the UI of lotro. I managed to fully migrate my account. Just had to pick a new name.
Im like level 6 hunter elven cause LOTR movies make me cum when i see the Elven archers and with theyre swords and bows so i was like FUCK YES when i saw the class.
They aren't too far from the movie image either as they can dish out a ridiculous amount of damage in a very short period of time too.
I migrated my account but now the game won't start. Fuck.
Try and restart the client. It should use the same. My client downloaded a shit ton of files.
Any want to do some Skirmishes today? I'm only a LVL 22 Captain though. On Nimrodel World.
Remember that quest where you turn into a chicken? Me and my friend challenged each other to get as far as possible as chickens. We got to the end of the troll shaws but got cornered so we had to suicide jump :(
Shit, that is quite a feat. I only manage to get to Bree. Couldn't bother with the rest. Do you feel the increased ping much?
