Thrang ‘n’ Chickens

It has been another fairly quiet, but enjoyable, week on the LOTRO front. I was busy with real life things for the majority the weekend, but on Sunday evening I met up with another ten others from my raiding kin and we headed off to ‘the Rift’. I’ve never been there before with any of my toons (when Mines of Moria came along to replace Shadows of Angmar, my highest level character was only 48, so I never got near the Rift when it was ‘the thing’ – I just jumped straight from questing in Angmar, into Moria).

Anyhow, on Sunday evening we headed off to the Rift with a mix of level 50 to 65 characters, made up of 2 minis, a burglar, 2 lore-masters, 2 captains, 2 hunters, a champ and a guardian. After three hours of great fun and one wipe, we’d gotten as far as Thrang, and we called it a night. Thrang is (I’m told) a nice 45 minute fight, so we’re planning on heading back there later this week with the aim of completing the whole instance – although that may take a couple of sessions.

Other bits that I’ve done in the last week or so, include levelling my lore master to 58, my rune keeper to 49, and I have nearly finished the chicken quests in the shire – I’m hoping the ‘Cloak of Cluck’ will be mine by this time next week! I only have the ‘big’ run to Rivendell to complete (so I’ll be badgering my kinnies to ride shotgun one evening this week, or over next weekend). What else would they be doing with themselves if they weren’t helping a level 1 chicken run from the Shire to Rivendell, without getting eaten?!!

Just as a comment, I’ve found the chicken quests quite good fun (although long!), and they are most certainly challenging; in particular, the Bree-land quest took three attempts, and consequently about 4 hours in total. If anyone wants to know more about my chicken questing, let me know, and I’ll post some more details…
