This week was recorded exactly three years from the date of our very first blog post! This week we talk about release notes, dev diaries, gaming conferences, store sales and more!
This week Goldenstar asks on behalf of herself and the Dums for advice on how to beat the final boss in Dark Delving that is giving us some problems.
Merric is taking his Captain through Mirkwood and was offered to be paid to help level someone through the Mirkwood intro quests.

Here is the latest news on events at Windy Acres Ranch.
Join us for the Rivendell Challenge on Wednesday, August 15 at 9:30pm server time (EST). Meet at the Forsaken Inn in the Lone-lands. The first event is a horse show, a mounted fashion contest. The audience will vote for the winners. The second event is a cross-country endurance horse race from the Lone-lands, through the Trollshaws, into Rivendell valley. The finale is a party at the Last Homely House in the Hall of Fire with music, fireworks and fun.
The first place winners of each event will receive 3 gold and a code for a 5th Anniversary cloak. Second place contestants will receive 2 gold, and third place contestants will receive 1 gold. Everyone who participates in the race will receive points in the Rider Standings. The top ranked riders will receive special prizes at the end of the season.
Only fifteen riders will be allowed to sign up for each event, so contact Kiralynn in game early on Wednesday. Participants should arrive at least 15 minutes before the event begins.
The standard Windy Acres Ranch Horse Racing and Horse Show rules apply, with two exceptions – goats will be permitted this race, and mounts of any speed may be used.
i would like to inform you of a topic, we as a kin, put up on the lotro forums.
It is a suggestion to Turbine / Developers. We would love to see the community respond to the suggestion and give feedback to it on the forums. Maybe with enough responses, turbine might think about it.

Belwynne of Landroval:
Happy Birthday CSTM!
You are both to be congratulated on the dynamic community you’ve created…and thanked! You add a human element to Middle Earth that is charming, enlightening, and fun. Thank you!
And Merric – I have been following, at first with earnest support and now with awe, your stupendous weight loss progress. Good job. You don’t get to -90 without having made fundamental changes in how you make choices in life that will now never revert back. Can you already play with baby Hobbit in ways you could not before? I can’t imagine a more appropriate, motivating and inspiring, goal. Good work. Great job…seriously.
So…how are you going to celebrate -100 lbs? At least a picture, please!
