This is just a blog post to keep you busy. I am too busy currently to write a constructive blog post. I still need to upload week 4 of camp and have to catch up with my blog post a week. It'll come soon enough!
As you all know, I barely ever post on my blog at all anymore. Last time I posted, other than the 3 videos yesterday morning, was late March.
So, to revamp my blog, I plan on making a post a week like I had planned to do in the first place. I got distracted with end-of-year tests, exams, festivals, and most important family issues. (R.I.P Great Grandma 'Phena!).
Though, I might not be able to follow through with my plans during the month of July, because I am setting off for summer camp in approximately 5 days (Or, if you prefer logically speaking, 4 days because I am writing this post after midnight) And I will be there until the 27th of July. Since I won't be able to log into LotRO at all, there is pretty much no use in updating my blog since I am doing nothing and have nothing to report. But I promise that once I come home from camp, I will post a day-by-day log of everything we did, excluding the days that we did nothing important.
Now, without further ado, here is my blog post!
Lately, Weatherstock happened on top of Weatherstock on the Landroval server! Really? It did? Yes.
10 bands played 3-5 songs each, including an encore. Well, I gotta say I was already kinda pooped by the time the 3rd band walked up to centre stage, so I just headed over to the FOZ (freak out zone) and drank a bit of ale and got some IRL food then we banged away on a few lutes and theorbos. By the time I headed back up to Weatherstock, the 5th band was already playing through their encore song. I found a comfy spot behind a big white bearded man (Beorbrand) and enjoyed the rest of the festival.
My favorite band was the Songburrow Strollers and their bouncing song! Good thing they won LMB's choice, because I was surprised they didn't win the Light in the Dark.
Overall, the event was pretty much what I had hoped for. (excluding the lag)
At the beginning of this month, I decided it was time for a change of scenery. I built myself a hefty reputation on Crickhollow, I wanted to escape it all so I decided to start fresh on the Landroval server after creating a character for Weatherstock. I also got the privilege of joining The Lonely Mountain Band! My new kinmates are as friendly as you could ever imagine! Funny too! If you ever plan on joining LMB, make sure you have a pie, a cookie, and a few dozen muffins. (Not too many for Bluebonnett though! She's on rehab for them!)
To conclude, here is a picture of a sexy captain named Saelriane, posing in front of a shoe on a stick.
Trignee, Saelriane, Aivya, Avlyn, and Potomal!
I decided I want to try to film every BBB concert I attend. Here is the first one from Last night!
P.S: Yes, I did switch to the Landroval server from the Crickhollow one. I transferred for Weatherstock, but ending up staying because I have way more fun here attending events and talking with likeminded people who don't like questing and would rather attend a festival for a whole month than quest.
I am so terribly sorry for not posting as much as I used to. School just got really hectic really fast, my brother went out of town for therapy he's going to be there for 6 weeks (4 weeks done already) so I have to take care of my puppy, his dog, my kitty(though he is good at taking care of himself), my mother, and myself. On top of working excessively on the latest expansion on Saelriane, I deleted Emegas the Human and remade him into Emegas the Hobbit. It was more fun to play a guardian as a hobbit than a human so I've played Emegas a lot lately. He is currently level 28 and Completed about 97% of all quests west of Haragmar and he is gonna work on Haragmar quests before heading to North Downs to hopefully get the level 30 today and tomorrow the kin will have another Draigoch run and I'll take one relaxing day from leveling Emegas (I leveled him once every day this week from 19-24 then I was able to squeeze 4 levels so far today and hopefully 6 in total for today) So I will now go back to questing and add an update at the hour/min/sec that I will level up.
Update: I got lazy after I made this post and I was only able to level up 1/2 of 28. So I will now work on the 1 1/2 last levels for today and continue my level a day for another week as punishment! :) [04/01 01:50:17 PM] Your level has changed to 29. [04/01 03:32:12 PM] Your level has changed to 30.
First of all, the biggest thing that has happened to me this week is that I was able to purchase the Double Bonus Point Sale! For a few moments, I had just slightly under 10k turbine points but I immediately purchased shared storage slot one and two since they're on sale. Then, I engulfed myself a bit and bought another character slot. Since many, many (manyX100) people in my kinship told me that a guardian is WAY better than a warden at tanking, I created a guardian. Here he is, cowering before the nazgul: His name is Emegas and he is from Rohan. I got the name idea from the spanish word Amigos/Amigas meaning friend (amigo is a guy friend and amiga is a gal friend) But since Amigo and Amiga were BOTH taken on my server, I decided to find a closest lore-appropriate alternative and came up with Emegas.
Also, After a somewhat long day of having fun playing with my new guardian, I stopped for a meal break. I came back and found that my bestest friend was online. We talked for a while and he somehow talked me into creating ONE MORE character. I told him I have every race available except for the dwarf and on every race, I have both genders: Girl Human: Saelriane Boy Human: Emegas Girl Hobbit: Evlin Boy Hobbit: Tasmanian Girl Elf: Tinuryane Boy Elf: Eristor
But I didn't have a dwarf. So I bought another slot and created Klein. He is a champion. Since a dwarf is very limited to the classes it can have and all the classes it IS available to I already have. Except for Champion. Here he is, kind of watching Skorgrim getting revived:
The only classes I need to complete the family are Captain and Lore-Master, but I plan on saving most of my turbine points for Rohan in the Fall. I still need to get 2 more character slots for Taz and Eristor when my membership runs out too.
~AdIoS! (P.S: I picked Emegas to be from Rohan just because Rohan is coming out xD)
This weekend was my first ever Draigoch run with the kin! It was probably the funnest thing I've ever done in game. Although I died 3 times attempting to "stop and go" at the "Death-Lights of Eternal Doom" (Which explains why we haven't even started yet and I have dread) Melai, the raid leader and our kin leader, put Jeanhans - another kinmember - as assist target for DPS. Then, she put the sun fellowship marker on him and told me to follow the cookie to know where to go. I got a few laughs out of the adults by saying "Cookie" in a baby voice and chasing Jean. You start off by DPS-ing his 4 paws at different perches. From my experience, the paws don't attack back. But I've heard horror stories that they do. By T3, every thing was going smoothly and I think that they only hiccup we had was the 2 minutes we sat at the door waiting for Draigoch to fall... We had defeated his paws and he was spinning at the top of the room and then landed on the perches then he flew up again then fell. It more like a WTF moment than a real set back. Oh well, it keeps you on your toes. It was a pleasant surprise to find out that I was one of the 12 people of the raid who could see Draigoch's health! According to Thoradhrad, not every one can see his health and usually only 3 people can see it. It made me feel like a ghost hunter and I felt the need to update his health every time it it went down after we fought his paws. At the end, I got my WSOC from the deed and rolled the highest on the shoulder tokens.
In other news, Since today's update, The Treasure Hunt Event is back on! Strap on your pick-axe and head out into the sunny land of Low Lands in Ered Luin and fight with sweaty dwarves in order to get the best cosmetics fit for a cave-claw critter and the rare chance at a cave-claw mount or a Jackpot Horse/Goat!
I won this goat on my first ever try with the cave-claw pet. I hugged him to death and found a deed to hug a cave-claw. He poops gold :) Adios!
Nothing much has happened in game in terms of exciting-ness. Amongst the boredom in Middle earth lately, Saelriane leveled twice (71,72) and got a [Polished Hauberk of the Dunland Shieldman] for the outfit she am recreating for Tinuryane from Lotro Fashion's Little Match Girl post. I only have a few screenshots that I took for the blog but can't make a post around so I decided to post a few of my old pictures I took way back when. OK HERE WE GO!
This is my post for this week :) Sorry for missing a few weeks...
