Onward to Mirkwood!!!


I've left the long dark of Moria, helped the elves in Lothlorien with hugging trees, and scolded them for getting drunk at a party... I'm a dwarf!! I don't scold anyone for drinking, I grab a pint and join in!! emoticon

Now it's on to Mirkwood! The elves have left behind their party-going and tree-hugging and are battling Sauron's forces! Siege of Mirkwood was the third expansion for LotRO and includes lvl 60-65 content. The xpac ends with the assault on Dol Goldur - Sauron's summer home. emoticon

Re: Onward to Mirkwood!!!


Awesome!
I got as far as a few quests in the Golden Wood in Lothlorien, and my laptop started bogging with it, much like the Old Forest near Bree. So, I packed up and headed for Enedwaith, where I'm assisting the Grey Company as they head South to Dunland and making inroads on diplomacy with the Men of Algraig. Loving the story there so far.

Of course, since I never got around to buying the Isengard expansion, I'll have to do that soon.

I read the notes for the upcoming Update 7, looks like the first half of Moria is getting a major overhaul in making progression through the zone smoother. Fewer reasons to to to a remote location, get a popup, go all the way back to the questgiver, then go right back to the same spot, things like that.

I took advantage of the same sale after Thanksgiving and was able to get the top tier xpac for $25!

Awww, sale does not apply to buying with TP emoticon
But many thanks for the heads up!! Do you know offhand what the "legendary" "Heroic" and "base" differences are? If not, no biggie, I can probably find that on the website when I go this week.

Details on the different levels are here:

The $50 package is really good for Premium players like me, because it includes a lot of the zone/expansion content. This is how I inadvertently ended up with Mirkwood.

Since you are holding out to purchase it with TPs. I'll keep an eye out for when there is a good sale and let you know when I see one. emoticon

Re: Onward to Mirkwood!!!


Oh, I'll probably buy it this week, I'm not a patient person, and 50% off is really hard to resist. I've just got a ton of TPs and trying to figure out what I'm saving them all up for. emoticon

Think I'll go Heroic... don't need the zone access, and don't need 3 mounts and 3 cosmetic outfits. But, I do like an extra 1K tp.

Speaking of mounts, gonna make one last try today to get the festival mount... I'm just too much of a spaz to make it around that course emoticon I assume the key is going the high road (and getting it right, of course) instead of the bogs?

The only zone/content you may need is Mirkwood. It was the level 60-65 expansion and would not be included with your current VIP access. I think this costs 995 TPs in the store, so getting the mid tier should provide you enough TPs to cover purchasing it as well.

So far the Mirkwood content has been really good!

Yes, take the high road. If it's the same as last year, it's a pain but very much worth it. Run the ramps a few times before you take the quest to practice emoticon
