I have played [In reply to] Can't Post

I enjoyed it a lot but it was too big of a potential time sink for me to stick with it. But for those who enjoy MMOs, and Tolkien, I think it is beautifully done. Further, Turbine who does the game, tries very hard to involve the community and do updates often. I do think it is top shelf.

I have no choice but to believe in free will.

Been playing it since launch [In reply to] Can't Post

I've been playing it since launch almost two years ago and I'm loving it. I've seen almost all the content in Shadows of Angmar, and it's great, and I really like what I've seen so far of the Mines of Moria expansion.

I play on Snowbourn, one of the European servers. My main character is Guardian who is level 56 right now.

I'm on Landroval [In reply to] Can't Post

which is apparently the unofficial server for roleplaying. I use a hobbit (same name as on here), 13th level......I have yet to explore very far, have been enjoying the Shire way too much, I've been to Thorin's Gate, Buckland and Bree, but not any where else. I have a blast when I'm online. I will probably start up another character eventually......

It's my current addiction [In reply to] Can't Post

Elendilmir here, Laerwen (60) and Oloriel (54) are my main toons. I have made some great friends playing the game, and I have established myself on those forums XD

That's my reason for not getting it! [In reply to] Can't Post

I already spend too much time on my XBox360, I have to try and spend a little time forcing myself to do something creative!

I've been playing for a little over a year now... [In reply to] Can't Post

It's great MMO with a more mature community than the 'other' MMO. Wink I just transfered my main toon to Elendilmir. So if you see me on, give a holler! Daithin (46) Burg and Dirrgo (27) Warden.

Been playing a few months now... [In reply to] Can't Post

and I've really enjoyed it so far; some parts are frustrating when you get incapacitated though! I am in Snowbourne as Nenweth, elf lore-master (10) and Ashway, woman champion (13) at the moment. It can suck you in sometimes and I've found myself on it for a few hours at a time! However it will be useful taking my mind off my boyfriend when he goes in the navy.

Cool! If you ever feel like joining a kinship consider The Blades of Arnor. Smile

Could use your help! [In reply to] Can't Post

Ashway is currently scouting the midgewater marshes for goblins and has just been incapacitated so I don't think she can do it on her own!!! Also Nenweth has just been poisoned by spiders whilst rescueing a lost dwarf cook from Gondamon! Her raven isn't much help. Ashway is already in a kinship; can she be in more than one?

Kinships [In reply to] Can't Post

A character can only be in one kinship. You could have different characters in different kinships but I wouldn't recommend it. I think you should have all your characters in the same kinship.

Best MMO On the Market [In reply to] Can't Post

 
I'm an MMO junkie and I have to say LotRO is sorely under-rated.. beautifully done!

New to LotR Online [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello everyone!

I've just recently purchased LotR Online and have yet to make a character.

I was wondering how many of you are on what servers and why... trying to figure out which server I should join.

Hi.... [In reply to] Can't Post

as mentioned earlier, I'm currently playing (when actually online) on the Landroval server. It is apparently the unofficial role playing server, so if you are more into role playing your character, then that server might be the best. However, there are many on there who don't role play. You'll find that on most of the servers actually, but it seems some do seem to favour certain communities more than others.

What's the matter, James? No glib remark? No pithy comeback?"

Wow! [In reply to] Can't Post

Those screens got me really excited! I've been wanting to play this, and I'm going to try the free trial .The only thing keeping me from buying it is the monthly subscription.


You are most like Aragorn. You have strong convictions and you stick to them. Although you are more of a recluse, you are extremely loyal to the few friends that you have. You are very serious about things, but you like having fun. Fame and fortune mean little to you, and you aren't concerned with being popular. Good for you!

I don't know.... [In reply to] Can't Post

if that life-time membership is still available or not...I think you can get a yearly one? I didn't like the monthly either, I bought the lifetime membership. Nice to know I won't ever have to worry about it again! I haven't played much in the last 2 months, but did manage to fish for a while one night. I have to get back into it a bit more soon.

Any fun going on in the game with anyone else lately?
