New Player Question

A festival just ended, but there are other non-festival events going on. What are these events?





  • Helped a hobbit do a riverdance
  • Promoted Middle-earth Lore
    • Filmed scenes for Episode 6
  • Leveled my cappy with Merry and Pip
  • Did a Beorning Stream 182 days after the last one



  • Rolled the most “Dad”-ly guardian ever to run along with my youngest daughter… who chose to play a “Buuuurglar” Bought a new Char slot the DAY before we got free slots.
  • Reminded of the Pain that Bind on Acquire items can cause.
  • Really enjoying cosmetic weapons and shields.



  • Bingo Boffin & Level Addict Wednesdays! No new levels on the mini…
  • … but the hunter duo is progressing well through Moria. Just hit the 21st Hall!
  • Unfortressed the Fortress
  • Made a fourth bullet point in the LPN notes to feel like I belonged…



  • Took a cloak away from Karv, then sent him an earring for apology
  • Completed epic Book 5 with Two Angry Hobbits and a Well-Dressed Man
  • Kept Lorniel alive long enough to be killed by the False King on the Academy Field Trip with Drac, Pineleaf and Teri
  • (My lvl 100 Hunter got one-shotted in Annuminas when I turned a corner and ran right into a roving threat. Good times)



  • Saryssa achieved the Lucky Duck title, but continues to have a gambling problem…
  • Axli Shingshing tried to help a hobbit, got a new title for his trouble.
  • My LM Galebrilith ran with that Dangbear and is up to level 41.
  • Ran Pelargir with Landroval!Teriadwyn and got enough Stars of Merit for a new shiny!



  • In the Academy Field Trip, after we witnessed Lorniel’s death, we collected some gear for her father.
  • In an effort to collect some data for my skirmish manuals, I started two new characters: one on a server that is going away and another one server that is staying up. It was an interesting contrast on how busy the two starter area were.
  • My minstrel on Landroval reached level 46. I completed the Misties and my class quest, started Angmar and the legendary item unlock.
  • Ran Thievery and Mischief many times.

“Just curious, did you guys have more fun getting your toons (the ones that are there) to Cap or after the Cap?

Me, I had more fun getting there.  Seems to be more of a grind after reaching Cap but it does feel good when you get that Something that fits.
