In Topic: LotRO community thread

26 September 2013 - 08:40 PM

I've been playing Lotro for years as well, but the last expansion saw my playtime decreased dramatically.  It was really not enjoyable.  I don't forsee this changing with Helm's Deep.  If you like GW2, Lotro is going to feel old, slow, boring and look pretty old too.

If you've never played it before, then you have nothing to lose from starting a free account and roaming around.  I find that's mainly what the game is good for:  sightseeing in Middle Earth.  As a game, it's been pretty bad and always had to rely heavily on the IP.

But yeah, I'd advise to be careful with spending money on this game.

In Topic: World Boss Event Chests - Bad idea?

Not true at all. The chest loot update did two things: added a guaranteed rare and increased the chance of getting an exotic or additional rare. Now the guaranteed rare is an account daily but the increased chance of an exotic or rare will remain for the event chest.

I'm sorry, but where in that post does it say they increased the chance of rares/exotics in the event chest?  Oh it doesn't... and you do realise they had a chance for rares/precursors before the initial buff?  And we all know how frequently that happened!  We'll just have to see if event chests go back to the state they were before or not.

Warrior is just OP at this moment.. Every weapon except rifle is AoE + the GS with current traits is so strong.
You can say how you prefer the smaller numbers but my warrior in Arah hits for for ~2k damage with every auto-attack, 100b goes even to 28k damage in just couple of seconds, nothing can match that atm.

I don't really care which does most damage.  I know which is more fun for me and that it's certainly good enough for any dungeon.. and to do things quick enough.  I've noticed that I've always gravitated to damage-over-time type classes that do have a bit of burst (Signet of Spite, Well of Suffering and Epidemic.. mobs just melt.)  I prefer to dot up a lot of mobs and be a bit more supporty.. having to think more, rather than straight out dps.


That being said, I always like to have a necro in my team.
I often speedclear dungeons, and having a mark/well necro with me makes using the safespots and balling enemies up a joke.

I wish more people realised this!  Especially that necros can help warriors do more damage when inflicting invulnerabilty. :)

Yes. I like playing my necro, can go either power/crit or conditions.

BUT. Noone wants to have a necro in the party. People are too simple-minded and only wanna play with warrs, guards and mesmer.

Leveled up a warrior just to be accepted in groups. Boring but best  damage. sigh.

This describes my situation exactly.  So annoying that necro is misunderstood.  I find it a heck of a lot more statisfying to see triple digit numbers absolutely streaming out of a pack of mobs rather that slower, big numbers on warrior.  I also feel I have to think a bit more on necro.  It's more engaging.  Warrior feels to much of a stand there and faceroll it profession.  It's not for me personally, but gotta do it if I don't want to be refused groups on a regular basis.

In Topic: Lost Shores update ruined my armor

You can't really see it unless my character stretches, but the Twilight Arbor Light armour makes my character look like she's separated at the torso as well.
