About a month ago, the Bingo Boffin quests were added to LOTRO. At first I was not sure what to expect with the new quests and was not sure if I would like them. My fears were unfounded. I am enjoying the Bingo Boffin quests more than even what I have done so far in most recent area of Gondor.
I think the biggest strength of the Bingo Boffin quests is the feeling of a different style of story. The quests feel much closer to the tone of The Hobbit and that is something that has not been prevalent in LOTRO until now. It is surprisingly fun to go through these quests even though the actual quests themselves are fairly mundane. That doesn’t seem to matter though because the story is so strong. I find myself excited every Wednesday to know I can sit down and play a light hearted story in the middle of the week.
You can watch my reactions to the quests as they happen in my YouTube series:
