There are four places I like to call home:
Everything should be in order for you to come visit.
3 Harrow Road. I always wanted to live in a hobbit home. Hatric (originally Hatty) currently resides in a deluxe home on the far side of the neighborhood. You will only find a few flower and garden spots in the slim yard leading up to the house. Once inside, you will be welcomed by a large variety of produce on your left. The main room has been remodeled and currently doesn't hold any sort of theme. However, there are two more rooms you can visit. The Writing Chamber on the left has everything an eager hobbit has to explore the inner workings of Bilbo's adventures. The Rohirric chamber on the right has a very warm orange glow with all the things a warrior from Rohan would want.
2 Harrow Road: Everyone runs into the issue of storage. So here is a secondary account just down the road to keep all... More

Highlights: Resolina completes Tarlang's Crown, Gondor Roving Threats, and factions
November 23rd - 28th
Spreadsheet Friday: Tarlang's Crown. It is no secret that Western Gondor has an entire section dedicated to group content. There are 4 "Bank" Dol Amroth dailies, 5 repeatable dailies, one vector quest (not required), and I think 14 total chain quests in the area. I like to imagine Elaelin rolling around on the couch complaining about eating too much while reaching for the remote control, so we had a few other members of the kin pop-in for the group run. Centralac, Rainbow, Dreadrick, Erestandir, and Findro were intertwined in tonight's activities. Things got a little tight around a level 107 burglar roaming in the enemy camp. I don't think the enemy will be attacking a level 110 or higher. Of course we couldn't possibly finish the 25 Quests Deed in one night. We kept coming back until we could finish the deed and the "finale" quest. That quest gives you 3 Unique Head Cosmetics with the catch of attaching your current level to them.
But wait, there's more! Gondor Roving Threats & Warbands. Yep, we went around killing all the big baddies. Western Gondor warbands are all soloable but... More

Highlights: Resolina continues through Gondor and finds time to continue working on her house.
November 9th - 23rd
Moria Monday: This time around we had someone taking over the reigns of Elaelin while she was away. Amethad, Avenger of Oaths Broken is the name I caught as Finnok collected an army of spiders in Skumfil. 90 minutes is what I had for my Slayer and Skill Deed Boost and 90 minutes is what it took to complete our run. In fact, he renamed it to Monday Moria Madness Marathon (and perhaps a few other M words). We made it through Forges, Dark Delving, Grand Stair, Fil Gashan, Forges (again for Trolls), Skumfil (spiders-only), and Halls of Crafting. We were so worn out from the run that we decided to forgo the raids.
Central Gondor Factions: While Western Gondor was a very refreshing experience, Central Gondor had me working too hard. I did manage to kill a couple of the Roving Threats by myself, but nearly all of the warbands were too tough to manage. There are 4 different factions and three of them are pretty difficult to leveling up. Men of Ringló Vale, Men of Dor-en-Ernil, and Men of Lebennin quests will get you just over Acquaintance standing. So instead of having enough... More

Highlights: Resolina enters Gondor, buys a new house, and has a new outlook on life
November 9th - 23rd
Spending Spree: So Turbine SSG had a big suprise for us. Follow in Frodo's Footprints: 30% Off Mithril Coins and Quest Pack Sales! It only took them 16 weeks. Of course, this had to happen the day I went to see Thorin: Ragnaorcs, I mean, Thor: Ragnarok. That movie blended so much humor from Guardians of the Galaxy into the Thor saga. Then they released Mordor for Black Friday sale. With only 3 characters (plus a banker) and not being VIP, I'm pretty frugal when it comes to Turbine, I mean, LOTRO points. I had to make sure I had enough for everything. Warning Math Ahead:

Highlights: Fanrel finishes Moria, Lothlórien, and Mirkwood.
Note: October 30th Moria Monday was covered in the previous post. This will cover October 31st through November 9th. November 10th Spreadsheet Friday was canceled.
Moria Epic (part 2): "Mines of Moria" has 9 Books and an epilogue. The first six books cover Avenger of Khazad-dûm title. Books 7,8 are in Lothlórien while Book 9 is entirely in Mirkwood for the Stalwart against the Shadow title. The epilogue itself covers the Hastener of Fate title. Though Fanrel is still lacking a few loose ends in all three zones, she did manage to get a lot done. I must have taken 150 screenshots of my adventure so I'm going to try and do my best to reduce that to a manageable level.
I think everyone will remember the giant disaster it was carrying Mazog around
Not that one. Your other bodyguard was the one that told me how to get in.
My idea was to kill him but go right ahead and make a deal with the Nazgûl. See if I care.
What he say? Better not be talking bad about my Gangnam Style!
Eh, Raddir probably just forgot how to remove poison from himself.
You finally kill Mazog, get your beloved Zigilburk back, leave it with a dead dwarf to... More

Last Week Highlights: Resolina starts the Gondor Epic, Fanrel completes quite a few quests in the dungeons of Moria, things slow down for the Fall Festival, and much more.
Week Starting October 23
Moria Monday: Halls of Crafting, The Grand Stair, Forges of Khazad-dûm. I might not have been ready last week (Post: Patience Young Elf) but this time I was ready. Fanrel managed to finish a few quests in Halls of Crafting and a long laundry list of quests in The Grand Stair. This week it was my turn to finish the class quest in The Grand Stair. Although we didn't discuss other games (Post: Moar Dots) this week, we did get a little silly. In fact, I don't know how Forhirvos (aka Oz) managed in being so nimble. Twice he got knocked back and twice he managed to stay alive. That night must have been his night because he also obtained the Small Turtle Shell inside Filikul! I honestly hesitated in rolling because I didn't think it would have been fair gaining yet another one (Post: Search for Decorations). I still rolled of course. I don't think Yualiel (aka Saelios, or Everen in Ventrilo) was doing too well. He died quite a few times inside the instances. I think Jilleth went off chasing... More
