New Player Question

Metadeeds: What do they consist of and what are the rewards?



  • Almost broke a Fellowship
  • Trained a hobbit
    • kind of
  • Finished the second episode of Middle-earth Lore



  • Finished Murkwaid on my Hunter and gathered all the rangers for the push south.  It’s much faster with port skills.
  • Ran my first Pelargir, full Platinum… sweet ring(S) and a necklace.  Accidentally pulled wife aggro on that one.
  • Finished balewood and thus Wildermore, had camera troubles with Mossbeard.



  • Level Addicts Wednesday! Aratiny is now lvl 52 and about to start Echad Mirobel in Eregion.
  • Worked a tad on my Landroval minstrel – up to lvl 33 (I think) and made a burg … Grimaderps!
  • Last week: ran Helegrod with kinnies (lots of their first times through) & Storm on Methedras lagskraid.



  • First #1: Led my first fellowship which was actually a raid (Helegrod for Mythgard Adventures)
  • First #2: Started playing music (thanks to Teri for the songs), and this could get addictive
  • Since she was in the area (chatting with Bingo and doing summer festival stuff) Glordriel is completing the Shire metadeed. All the pies, and 24 quests away.



  • Landroval burglar Saryssa has developed a gambling addiction in addition to her drinking problem. She also got into a fishslap duel with Karvaran.
  • Hobbit guardian Fauxriadoc Whiskydoe went through much of Book 5 and some of the Misty Mountains quests with Fauxregrin Puttback and Grimadubs
  • Went through all of my alts on the various servers to start thinking about which ones may be moving and where.



  • Gladden Beorning completed the main section of Volume 2.
  • On Landroval, my minstrel helped Legolas and headed to the Misty Mountains.
  • Captain on Arkenstone ran quests in Eastern Gondor.
