  • Not so much for the first 20 levels, but more and more so as the game progresses. In the original design, not so much, in the redesigned areas, yes. By the time you reach Isengard (65), it's pretty much completely Quest Hub orientated.  To the poin…
  • The Sith Inquisitor and Jedi Sage are pretty much identical in how they play (Sith you shoot lightning, Jedi you throw rocks), and both are my favorite to play.   In both you can play as a DPS/Healer, with your companion being a tank.  Makes comba…
  • The thing is, whenever a company delays something for "quality", that's not actually the usual reason, as the resulting quality is the same. They just had their manpower reduced...
  • I think EQ2 is the better game, with far more content and a better F2P model. Yet it's hamstrung by a really awful graphics engine. I can play LOTRO on medium-high in 1080p and get about 30 FPS . I have to crank down the resolution and graphics in …
  • As an older person, this is one of those things (also with rock music dying) that angers and puzzles me.   Why can't people actually play video games? Why is watching other people play them such a big deal? (e-sports, you tube Let's Plays). They'r…
  • Originally posted by Braindome Looks like now that Vanguard has been closed down LoTRO is gonna be my new home as Sony got me so mad that I uninstalled even EQ1 and 2 and cancelled my all access pass. Thanks for this info, made me realize where my…
  • It's not the "danger" that sells these things, but the ability to gank people. Some people get off doing that. Most don't.
  • I've played a lot of MMORPGs, but I don't think I've ever reached the "endgame".   To me, it seems like they design games for people who will make the game their second life. And if you don't, you simply can never "catch up". It's just so dispirit…
  • I agree with most those points, except the group content one.   Only a small fraction of the game groups, and they only ever group with each other, so making new content for a small portion of the players is crazy.   Of course, Turbine's problem…
  • The landscape is for 85+ only, but they added a new feature to the game, "Big Battles", which can be done by level 10 characters (and up).   It's kind of awful though. It's sort of like a skirmish, only instead of fighting, you simply click on thi…
  • Lotro might have technically got expansions, but they have paled in comparison to Moria and each one has been worse and worse. Until finally the disaster that was Helm's Deep, which apparently put in the game into maintenance mode, with no more exp…
  • So why a stealth announcement as a reply on the forums and not as a press release? Also he's previously made incorrect statements. That incident when he claimed you no longer needed travel rations in the live game (this was before Helm's Deep, when…
  • If you do every quest in a region, sure you will be overleveled. But OTOH, if you just do enough quests to get the deed (which is what I usually do), you won't, even with the VIP bonus. Even doing a few more.   For instance, I just finished Foroch…
  • I don't think some (older?) people realize just how popular Minecraft is. It's huge. Giant. Enormous.   Not only Minecraft itself, but its numerous clones and things like Terraria and Starbound.
  • The game was always pretty easy from 1 to 20. There are I think two slightly tough quests - the vigil, (or something) in Staddle, where you have to kill 4 signatures, including usually 2 at once. They could be a little tough on level, depending on …
  • Maybe it's just me, but I want more RPG stuff, not action game stuff.
  • Yup. It's kind of funny though. LOTRO is very much a pay to win game, in terms of what the cash shop offers, but at the same time, you don't really need to use it for that, especially after the latest expansion.   1) Health Potions without a cool…
  • While it's certainly better than most other games, at the same time, back in the days when you got a horse at level 35, it was a nightmare having to run everywhere.   Or in the case of Evendim, swim everywhere.
