    I did what you recommended to do and installed first without highres file. I downloaded the file after the initial installation and all went fine, no errors.

    @Po_gg
    I made a new account. Rolled a Minstrel on Laurelin. I couldn't resist the call of High Elves anymore lol. So far it has been sweet :) I don't like the in-game store but I guess it's an ordinary thing in every mmorpg today so I can live with it.

    Got my baby elf out of the starting area and was about to start crafting and bam! Downtime coming. Talk about bad timing ggrrrr :) How often downtimes?

    Wellcome to Laurelin. Should you need help from fellow-Minstrel, feel free to IM my main, Stormsong.
    Downtimes to each server are announced to be once a week, promised not longer than 1 hour.  Also, we have normal ones mostly once in a week. Of course, when new content comes, downtimes may take really long...

    May I add you to my buddy list? I might have some questions about the class traits etc. I think they changed how you can spec your class. At least I don't remember I saw 3 different trees where to spend points when I was playing last time many years ago. So many new features but some things are familiar fortunately :)

    @Torval etc. On Crick if you need a hand with e.g. First Age stuff send "Gerard" a mail :)

    As far as Light goes you need it up to a point. Once you have enough Light for an area you can consider other stuff. Some non-Light items have very good stats. When it comes to armour however - which provides Physical Mitigation of course - the best gear comes with Light. So you get it whether you want it or not. So whilst its not - pretty sure its not - needed in N. Nirkwood you will end up with Light.

    How linear is stuff? Some levels have a lot of content - level 100 for example got a 95-100 quest pack followed by 2 at 100 and then a 100-105. Lots of options.

    Other levels - not so much. There is enough though to miss out just about any area including Moria or Mordor as far as leveling goes - as long as you have other areas to compensate (gear is another matter). (OK you could grind the same skirmish over and over but that is not what I am talking about.)

    Not a bad timing, you can say you were there at the very first.
    See, that's a new thing, downtimes were fairly hectic, usually on Wednesdays, but sometimes missed a week, sometimes there were two, sometimes on a random day... (not counting the maintenance downtimes at content updates, of course)

    They've announced last week, that from now on the weekly downtime will be always on Tuesday, always at the same time (7am EST). Today was the first of those - and you were caught by it :wink:


    edit: starter character, on Laurelin, and into crafting... if you don't mind the shorter surroundings compared to an up high elf, you could check the crafter's square in Michel Delving, the Shire.
    I don't know if it's still ongoing or not (I wasn't on Laurelin since months), but for many years there was a recurring weekly event every Tuesday evening (Eu time), where the crafters gathered there and geared up new or low level characters. You can even get a crafting tool for your profession to use until you have your own universal tool.

    second edit: aging vs. memory... looks like it is bi-weekly, so maybe there's no market today: http://laurelinarchives.org/node/11928
    When on Laurelin, and in doubt, always ask the Archives :wink:
    It is a great page for players there.
