Raise Your Glass:
Hi Goldenstar and Merric, i’m currently listening to the new episode 97, and i think i know why they want to increase captain tanking abilities. It’s like healing for the Loremaster, so they are more useful in 3-men. Currently, if we want to run Inn of the Forsaken (for exemple) with an optimal configuration (one light, one heavy, one other), we need a heal, so it can be difficult for loremasters to find a group. And i think it might be the same think for captains and tanking.
Of course, with Isengard we (LMs) wont be able to heal a full group, but we could manage the heal for a 3-man more easily. Food for thoughts^^
Keep up the good work
Sadorhael, Elf Hunter, finally achieved World Renown! Hurray! (And what a pretty steed )
My Captain on Eldar made it to 41 this week, and is now my highest level character I have had in the game. I also persuaded two friend to return to the game from WoW; so I am happy with that.
Keep up the good work, and have fun.
Hello Goldenstar and Merric. I have written in once before with a little wardrobe tip and just wanted to share a helpful LOTRO time saver. I read Merric’s recent post regarding the new Pack organizer plugin and would like to share an alternative method for pack organization. I have started to load my packs starting with bag 5, then 4, then 3, etc, putting all the stuff i always keep on my character like weapons and consumables in these bags first. This way all the “junk” you pick up filters into bag 1, then 2, etc this way you dont always have to sift through the good and the bad and reorganize after a short play session. Keep up the great work !!!
