Rohan Content : My Thoughts

Dren_UtogiDren_Utogi OuterSpacePosts: 1,713Member Uncommon

I've been playing for the past couple days and made ot level 80, and I got to admit. I'm having a blast ! One of my personal peeves of older content was it's flow and how you get to on area to another, this seems to be better implented in the Rohan region.  Being able to travel south from the Golden Woods into the Wold felt epic and well thought out.

 

Warsteed, I love them. The skill tree and the cosmetic systems, well implented and makes the steed alot more interesting then I would of thought. Actual new skills for mounted combat is a added plus.

 

Graphics, absolutley the best textured game in mmorpg's. We can argue about vanguard, and age of conan, but both games don't have the high detailed textures that breath life into the game.  Each time I log out of another game and log into LotRO, it is like soothing shower on the eyes.

 

The one thing I've learned, I don't care what oither people do with their moeny or there time because 99% what they do will not impact me ,at all. I've come to enjoy my time in LotrO once again after a long break, and I look forward to Helms Deep ! .

 

See you all on the battlefeild @ Helms Deep !

    Yes, Rohan is beautifull, it's story is interesting (even than over-suspicious Rohirrim that banned me from town was not that bad: I had to re-earn his trust and he later made a feast to my honour and apologized me personally). I understood that I like Rohan - from the very first steps I made there.

    Good you like it - will meet you in Helm's Deep.

    Great game despite what the haters say.

    It has the most immersive graphics of any MMO.

    Currently i have 453 screen shots of my journey through middle earth so far

    yep, it has great graphics..until you look at the player character models.

    top 2 thing i hate about LotRO player character models and the ugly, cheap plastic looking ui( and their neglect of further modig progress)

    You should reallly take a look at some of the newer mmos.  The graphics in this game are ok...... in 2007.  From the pictures i'm looking at in this post.  I first thought I was looking at pics from a playstation 2 game.

    Its scenery is unsurpassed... its a wide open world, that feels vast and wide.. 

     

    yes... the annimations update was needed, but when you talk about immersive graphics, the game is still on top of the show 

     

    And dont forget, on top of the graphics, this game also has the most immersive stories and lore of them all... The epic quests and the scenery are more then enough to keep any true RPG player busy from level 1 to max level.

    Add to that the community and its obvious to me that for any old fashioned MMO player this is still the bet fantasy place to hang out.

    Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations and worlddesign) SWTOR (Story immersion) TSW (story) ESO (character advancement)

    You should really take a look at pictures of PS2 games if you think LOTRO even remotely resembles one.

    Heck, apparently this next generation of consoles won't have many basic features PC games do, like Anisotropic filtering.

    I've played a number of newer MMORPGs, like Rift and SWTOR. They look worse, except for the character models. That's one thing LOTRO does badly, but the landscape is great.

    Playing through Fangorn Eave. O made sure to adjust the brightness and contrast to make it feel like the dim lit woods of the book and to really get the zone to be epic. It was epic, to the point of me walking my warsteed through the quest line. When I got to the last part of the quest line, I felt the tear jerking happening, it was so epic lol. I love animals and that is all im going to say so I will not spoil it for anyone who hasn;t played through the zone yet :).

     

    When a game can pull you into ith great writing that invokes emotion, it is great game.

    how do you get your screen shots so clear?

    The game looks great on my machine but the screen shots always seem lacking.

    Theres a lot of good things about LOTRO and I have played it for a long time, however there are 2 things I really do not enjoy about the game, 1 is the Virtue system, for every alt its a massive grind, I would prefer a proper AA system instead.

    The other one is the Legendary system, even after all the revamps and changes I still do not think it contributes anything possitive to the game.

    Getting further into the Wildermore story, and it is amazing. Well crafted and well produced in my opinion,
