New Player Question

  • Helped Bingo find some elves & learned Elrond doesn’t care
  • Started my Minas Tirith series



  • Proof of Concept done – Archet to Angmar on a VIP account Minstrel done using only Evendim & Angmar regions. Epics for filler.
  • Karvett the Guard (94!) is leveling across the Stonedeans assisting the defence of Brockbridge.
  • Crafting stack size is 500!  Purchase full stack from vendor is also 500! (Shift click)



  • Haunted Burrow Halloween w/ Bekah!
  • Epic Story is EPIC!! No spoilers, but … MadeofLions is a BEAST

  • Shout-out from QuartermasterU on his stream!
  • Attempted to take an under-leveled dwarf to Minas Tirith.
  • Led the Academy Field Trip tour through the Water-works.



  • Gladden Boffin character reached level 37 while questing in the Trollshaws. The most annoying part involving the quest activation order of the wolf hunt quest.

  • Started running Minas Tirith on Laurelin.

  1. Great episode. I haven’t ever seen any of the chicken runs. What route does one take if one is taking a chicken to Minas Tirath or Helm’s Deep?
