I ventured into Moria today, trying to clear up some old deeds and realised that the 2nd half of Moria has been revamped. I had completely forgotten about it! I started a quest chain with Svanr the dwarf and it led to this solo instance where you receive a memory or vision. It was a pretty cool surprise and visually its simply amazing – I love the misty stone trees in the background. I don’t know if this quest chain was in game before.
I love the adventure xp gained from crafting, if I’m honest I’d buy levels if I could… I took my time levelling Eldaeriel and saw most of the sights of Middle Earth, its a bit daunting to face all that again. It must be really off-putting to anyone who starts playing and has friends at cap. Open tapping, auto loot and auto quests across the game is great and the great Bree-vamp is also very good. I have started the very scrooge like grind for the Yule war-steed appearance, I don’t know if I can be bothered to go the whole 120 quests or not. I am at 40 so far and I’m certainly not paying TP to reset the quests.
Team Orange have been busy, we’re all geared up (though improvements can still be made – most notably 2nd agers for myself and Aeowulf, c’mon Bugud!) and we’ve cleared the new instances on Tier 1 and will start tackling Tier 2 challenge shortly. The new instances are stunning and a lot of fun, am looking forward to running them again.
I have been completely slacking on the blogging front – usual combination of playing, being busy and getting cold after cold… Perhaps the New Year will be better ;)
Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year to you all :)
