A level 60 RK at last!

Well, the EU free-to-play release has been delayed – maybe for several weeks. Judging by the issues being reported on the US servers, I can’t say I’m sad! I’m sure Codemasters have been less that efficient with regard to their own release here, but if the lessons learned from the US release are implemented when free-to-play does eventually go live here, then the cloud will definitely have a silver lining – at least in my opinion.  

I had been working hard to get my LM though last few chapters of Volume 2 and first book of volume 3, but as the free-to-play delay was announced in the middle of last week, I took the opportunity to move back to my level 59 rune-keeper for a few days. One of the kin wanted to run ‘The School’ and ‘The Library’ (3-man instances in Eregion) on Thursday last week, so I tagged along and picked up a total of just over 30k experience in all for the quests across the two instances (even though the said level 53 quests were only green for my level 59 RK). I then headed back into Moria and completed the volume 2 quests all the way up to and including 2.4.7. I was then lucky enough to pick up a PUG to do 2.4.8, ‘The Drowned Treasury’; this was actually the first time I’ve ever been the main healer in a fellowship using my RK, and I have to say that it was a very positive experience. To cap it all, I even managed to hit level 60 halfway though the instance, so I was well and truly happy by the end of it.  

I’ve now parked up my RK once again, and am back in Mirkwood on my lore master.

I still have two or three chapter of volume 2 to complete (I rescued Bori from the Dungeons of Dol Guldur last night), and then on to Volume 3, and the volume 2 epilogue quests…

In real life, the spring weather has been fantastic for the last week, so what with the longer daylight hours, I’ve been spending most of my spare time away from the PC. That said, I’ve not been entirely inactive, so here’s a wee update…

Last weekend, I completed the ‘Hero of the Upper Levels’ deed in Moira, with my lore-master (still level 59). I’ve also managed to get to Kindred rep with the Iron Garrison Guards, so I’ve picked up the ‘Nature Friend’ legendary trait. See the attached picture of my Bog-Warden!

Finally, at time of writing, I’ve just completed vol 2, book 4, chapter 7 ‘The Drowned Treasury’, so I’ll be working though the solo quests to get to the next fellowship quests in vol 2, book 5, chapter 5 before I head on out to Lorien.

With my rune-keeper (level 51), I’m finally out of Forochel, having hit Kindred Rep with the Lossoth – so I now have a Tundra Horse to show for my patience (see below). Eregion, here I come!

I’m not really using my level 65 (tank) at the moment, apart from an hour’s soiree into the 16th Hall last Sunday to help a couple of kinnies complete their level 58 class quests (rune-keeper and hunter class quests).The only part of the game I really still want to do at level 65, is to successfully run Sammath Gul, but my kin appears to have gone to sleep in the Spring sunshine, so I’ll bide my time. If I don’t get to complete it, c’est la vie. I certainly don’t have the time, or even the inclination, to be raiding (Barad Guldur, Dar Narbugud, The Rift, etc) at the moment – most of my current playing time is in chunks of about an hour, or less…real life is just too busy.

Talking of spring, the end of the in-game ‘Spring Festival’ is almost upon us. Like a lot of folks, I’m still awaiting the festival horse vendor bug-fix, so that I can pick up a ‘Spring Festival’ mount for both my lore-master (level 59), and for my warden (level 36). I’ll post a picture of each, as and when Turbine sort it out.
