I’m a little bored in lotro at the moment. When there are kin group nights or our regular team orange nights, it’s still fun but I don’t really have much else to do currently. Well aside from grind legendary shards or catch up on some deeds, so roll on update 10. I’m quite enjoying game hopping at the moment though, I have a couple of characters on the go in Vanguard, I’ve downloaded SW:ToR (Ravanel’s gorgeous screenshots certainly piqued my interest and now it’s free to play, I thought why not) and of course I have my old MMO, EQ2.
So in a fit of nostalgia, I logged back into eq2. I thought I’d try and get some shots of the epic zone Veeshan’s Peak for an upcoming post. It wasn’t a particularly good idea as you can imagine. It’s still green, my AAs were all reset, I wasn’t wearing a full set of gear… It would have been dodgy anyway, I had hired a mercenary and had hoped to be able to clear enough trash to get some screenies of some dragons. It didn’t go very well, I did have some tinkered feign death potions and got a little way in but the cooldown on reuse was 30 mins so I figured it would be too boring.
So I went back to Faydwer with my tail between my legs and suddenly remembered that Aeowulf had popped back in recently and said that the level 90 hand crafted gear was far superior to anything available from when we were last playing. I went off to the broker and well yes, yes it was… check out these stat screenies! (plus a superfluous shot of my griffon)
I decided to give Veeshan’s Peak a miss for now and instead thought I’d get back into the character by doing some heritage quests. I chose Justice for JoJo as it was duoable at the time and after figuring out where I was up to, what I needed to do next, how to get to where I needed to, I moved the quest on a couple of stages until I reached a point where you needed two people. It is physically impossible to advance the quest, so I shall have to coerce Dimzad to log back in to help me. I was a bit cross though, not being able to carry on after all that effort!
I feel absolutely lost though, the level cap has been raised to 95, I haven’t bought the last two expansions and I don’t know what I can and can’t do in respect to those. I’m intending to try and have a weekly play session (as well as Vanguard) and I don’t know whether to try and finish some stuff with Suzita or whether to start again with one of my low levels. It does seem easier to start again as without the expansions, much of what Suzita has left to do is group content… I might dust off my beast lord (I still can’t believe they brought that class in after all those years of saying NEVER!)
