LOTRO Academy: 87 - Introduction to Epic Battles
Branick, Mysteri, and Pineleaf welcome new host Draculetta for this introductory look at Epic Battles. Thanks for listening.


  1. Drac’s first episode is about Epic Battles??? Oh, the irony! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was waiting for someone to pipe up about that!

  3. Trial by fire ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am so glad it wasn’t just me who tried boldly to defend Helms Dyke but didn’t have a single clue about where to go or what to do! Well done Draculetta great first episode!

    I must say that when Mysteri asked the question “what the hell is epic battles?”, I thought you could have ended the section right there. I think it’s one of those rare questions that actually answers itself in the asking.

    really enjoyed this episode! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great job overall, but you neglected to mention a couple of things when mentioning rewards for Epic Battles.

    1) They do give marks/medallions for completion of the main and side quests: about 225 marks and 80 meds at level cap – so a relatively significant number when you add up 2-3 sides + the main (sounds like a nice meal!)

    2) Occasionally, and I haven’t gotten enough platinum rewards to get an idea of how often, GOLD jewelry drops randomly when you get 20 platinum points. I’ve seen them linked through in-game chat and they’re deliciously blingy. They are the best jewelry currently in the game.

    3) If you’re not level 95, you get xp for main and side completion (there’s that dinner reference again), but no xp for killing mobs, so not as valuable as skirmishes or instances for xp grinding.

    Keep up the great work…

      Little bit of a correction: you don’t get marks/meds for the main, only for the side quests (and there’s allegedly a bug that prevents marks/meds from some side quests according to forum chatter)
