Level 40 and Beyond #LotRO
I have to admit, reaching level 40 was a little bit of a let down. I purchased one new skill and then set off for the skirmish vendors who sold me a handful of gear upgrades (my cheapest method of obtaining new gear) – and that was it. I had been looking forward to something more, I have no idea what it was but I didn’t feel satisfied. This weekend was spent avoiding NaNoWriMo and taking care of some real life things instead of delving too much in game. I did work on my crafting for a good portion of yesterday evening and I’ve finally almost mastered expert (T3). Then it’s on to artisan. Each tier you master requires more points to master the next one, I think I’m up to 720 so far and I’m not looking forward to the amount of supplies artisan is going to require. Thankfully crafting (and harvesting) is not difficult per say – and I had a nice relaxing time of it.
I’m also really enjoying the Misty Mountains which is where I’m questing now. I have a thing for snow capped zones (it’s already so close to Christmas, I’m so excited) so the zone itself appeals to me on very basic levels. What didn’t appeal to me was the group of players who decided to rush past me on their mounts to kill ahead of me including the mob I was after. Ah well, when situations like that occur I typically just think that they must need it a lot more then I do (because I wouldn’t be as rude as that) and I let them have it. I don’t mind waiting for it to respawn.
I’m looking forward to delving into more content, and maybe even eventually reaching Moria and beyond. We’ll just have to see how it goes!
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
