It’s a Goat, of Course
I picked up a few 60 day time cards for LoTRo just before it went F2P for half price (of course now the price has gone back up) and I’m really glad I did. This gives me VIP access until February some time, as well as monthly turbine points. Including the ones I had already accumulated, I’m up to 2500 or so and today I made my first purchase. Sure, I know I could quest for the riding skill, but I was eager to use my dusky nimblefoot goat – so I purchased it for a whole 48 turbine points. Since I don’t have to buy a mount to use, I think it was well worth it.
The goat came from pre-ordering Mirkwood, and my 29 Minstrel is the first character who is able to ride it. I like how it’s not a typical horse mount, the basket on the end bounces as I ride, and the lantern sways. It’s a great deal faster then my starter pony, and I’m really happy with my first purchase.
It’s been a little while since I’ve delved into the world of Middle-Earth and I barely remember how to play. I have four characters (each are crafters) which is more then enough for me. I may decide to go play one of the lower level characters I’ve got to get re-familiar with the areas. Pictured above is Lysthia (on the Landroval server if you want to say hello) who is an expert Armourer (that means she does prospecting, metalsmithing, and tailoring).
As always I love the way this game looks and am eager to see where my adventures take me. I may even try a skirmish or two since they lowered the level requirements.
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
P.S. Sorry for the lackluster post, but it’s thanksgiving day and I’m stuffed with turkey. Om nom nom.
