New Player Question
If I want to maximize marks/medallions in a skirmish, am I better off raising the level of the skirm and staying at Tier 1, or go to a Tier 2 and keep it on level (raising level AND going Tier 2 is not part of the questions)?
Week In LOTRO
- Top o’ the Moria to ya! More fun and games on my F2P account, this time in Durin’s Way
- Really disappointed at Elrond’s landscape crew, they’ve really let Rivendale go wild. Bushes, shrubs, even a tree is growing through a bridge now. Tacky…
- Pro Tip: Avoid “I’ve totally done this quest before” assumptions. Ran all over Stangard looking for the door that was directly behind the quest giver. -_-
Big Ed Mustafa
- Lots of retro deeding on Mnemone the Hunter
- LilEdMustafa made Trout Master and Master Angler,mailed 8 stalks of rhubarb to Allupbaba
- Thought my champion Galandrial was finally kindred with Minas Tirith again, then found out I only made it back to Ally and I still need 70,000 more rep.
- Mourned the still-broken guard bleeds
- Mostly Sammath Gul runs
- (Mostly) finished my Guard’s tanking armour!
- Saryssa the burglar got her war-steed! She also finished up the Stangard storyline.
- Skirmished irresponsibly with Teriadwyn and had a pair of Wretched Falconers wreck my plans for a speedy run through Tuckborough.
- Spent some time playing LOTRO paper dolls to get ready for tomorrow’s Grrlz stream.
- Glordriel has returned to MT to do the dailies so that she can top off her imbued weapons
- She is also doing epic battles for star lit crystals, right now focusing on mastering first MT EB
- Baby champ Fablus has a new lady love, a lady dwarf guardian named Cuddili Bear. They ran through the Barrow Downs together and he is totally smitten. She calls him her boy toy.
- Brandy warden attempted Helm’s Dike and decided to head to Volume 4
- My Beorning met a man named Jajax
- Ran numerous skirmishes – had three Star-lit Crystals waiting for the update.
