As listeners of the LOTRO Reporter podcast may know, I am well and truly hooked on PvMP. My warg feels like an extension of myself, and whenever a coworker is starting to bother me, I wish I could run behind a tree, pop into Stealth Mode, dash out and Pounce them to shut them up, Maul them to really get my point across, and then Disappear to confuse and annoy them…..
Anyway, this post is not all about my confusion between the game and reality! I am here to talk about the Destiny Points system, a system that may be underused by a large population of players. Destiny Points (DP) are gained on the Free Peoples side (that’s dwarves, elves, men, and hobbits) by gaining levels for your characters. So, if you are an alt-a-holic and are leveling many characters, your DP will go up fairly quickly. DP is very useful before a big fight to gain temporary buffs, such as increased speed, morale, or power. I once cashed in a bunch of DP on increased speed so that I could run into the Trollshaws and Rivendell at an insanely low level, leaving my enemy pursuers in the dust. (That’s not to say that I didn’t squeal in terror like a little girl as gigantic bears tried to chase me down!)
On the Monster Player side (that’s wargs, spiders, orcs, and uruks), the DP is more liberally doled out. All quests completed as a creep gain DP, since DP is the main source of currency for gaining new skills and abilities for your creep. Again, DP can also be used to gain temporary buffs to speed, morale, power, and so on.Read the rest of this entry »

I have a confession to make: I am a good little healing minstrel who also loves to *thump* the heads of baddies!
Now obviously, when I am playing in a fellowship, and my fellows are counting on me to be the dividing line between glorious victory and head-hanging, foot-shuffling defeat, my main focus must be on strumming my theorbo for all it is worth, keeping those morale bars nice and fat.
So, what’s a mini to do when they really, really just want to sneak in a Ballad of Resonance or a Piercing Cry? First of all, I recommend that you not — I repeat, not — give in to this urge if you are pounding those heals as fast as you can till your fingers are bleeding. However, if the pace is a little more leisurely and you are able to throw a few damaging spells in between keeping your companions enheartened, using the following options might help to streamline the process for you.Read the rest of this entry »

Here is a bit of interesting random trivia: Did you ever notice, when playing an Elf character, that wild animals, such as foxes and hares, do not run away from you the way they run from Dwarves, Men, and Hobbits? Also, Elves are unable to harm those innocent creatures, while the other races may (if they desire to be so cranky and mean!) I thought that was a cool testiment to the lore of Tolkien’s world, where Elves are basically a peace-loving people, thoroughly at harmony with nature and the creatures of field and forest.
Speaking of harmony and peace, did you realize that if you do not want to see blood and guts during gameplay, you can turn that function off? Go to Options –> UI Options –> and uncheck “Enable Blood Effects”. I don’t need to see all that messy stuff!Read the rest of this entry »

After a brief hiatus from posting — due to the demands of the dreaded “REAL LIFE” — I am back with another installment of “Did You Know”! Don’t worry, you can be well assured that I was appropriately pummelled with wet noodles for my prolonged absense, and it won’t happen again!
So….. “did you know” that when you are buying items from a vendor, there are different options for choosing the amount that you buy? What I mean is, with a simple press of a button, you can indicate the quantity you’d like:
- Press Shift if you would like to buy a stack (usually 100)
