Beothjor has made it to Fangorn Forest and is currently doing some quests for the Ents. I dinged level 96 tonight . Some of the fights are starting to get tougher. I’m afraid my old gear might be to blame. I’m looking forward to hitting level 100 and trading in my old level 85 second age bow for a level 100 second or maybe first age bow… We shall see! I did a couple of the Helms Deep big battles. I won the first one lost the second. It was interesting but not really my cup of tea me thinks. The battle at Helms Deep looks pretty cool though! Praise Thor!
I’ve been playing Lord of The Rings Online daily. Beothjor has joined the guild Second Breakfast and even got approved to full member after a three week trial. Seems to be good people and I’m enjoying it so far. They put on multiple concerts weekly and do fun events. You won’t see that on another MMO. The music is definitely one of the coolest things in LOTRO. I’ve been adventuring across Rohan and tonight made level 90. They did another update and apparently added the Battle of Pellenor Fields and raised the level cap to 105. So 15 levels to go! I made it to Edoras and got to see King Theoden and company. Very cool. I’m looking forward to seeing Gondor next! Here’s a screenshot of Beothjor hanging out with Gandalf the White and Shadowfax. I prefer Gandalf the Gray but that’s just me.
One year later the MMO itch has hit me hard again. So this time I decided to go back to one of my old favorites Lord of the Rings Online. Last time I played the game was six long years or so ago. The good thing is back then I bought a lifetime membership to the game. So when I fired it back up I had a TON of turbine points on my account and was able to buy all the expansions I missed while I was gone with those points with a ton of points left over. I’ve resumed playing my Dwarf Hunter now named Beothjor (thanks to extra turbine points) and now on the Crickhollow server due to server consolidation from my old server Silverlode. Last I played Beothjor he was level 65 and had finished with Siege of Mirkwood expansion stuff. Now Beothjor is level 73 and working his way through Rise of Isengard stuff. I can’t wait to see Rohan and Gondor! Other things I’ve been playing since I’ve been gone are Fallout 4, Darkest Dungeon, Elite Dangerous, XCOM 2, Rocket League, 7 days to die, Diablo 3, NBA2K16.
MMO Viking has been having a lot of fun recently in Everquest 2 Altar of Malice expansion. The wrecking crew has moved up to 1-grouping raid zones. We’ve killed a few of the bosses so far. Beolf has some nice new raid gloves and forearms and very nice adornment upgrades for his neck and rings. Tonight Beolf has been harvesting for Primordial Adornment drops so far I’ve got Tiers 1 through 4. Fun stuff. Praise Thor!
Well my beloved Seattle Seahawks lost Superbowl XLIX on the 1 yard line with 30 seconds left. I am still recovering. I give Tom Brady and the Patriots credit, they won the game. 1 yard from being back to back Superbowl Champions is tough though. The bright side is the Seahawks crushed the Broncos in last year’s Superbowl and have a very young team so should be good for awhile. In Everquest 2 news, Beolf the Ranger dwarf is a few pieces away from a full set of 4/4 green gem gear. I believe he needs 10 more green gems that cost 200 Ferrin each. Today I’ve been harvesting roots to try to get rare Hiven Roots so I can have the best poison made for Beolf to use against his many enemies.
Life is fantastic. My beloved Seattle Seahawks defeated the Green Bay Packers in a quadruple miracle instant classic legendary NFC championship game to advance to the Superbowl. Beolf the Dwarf Ranger is coming along very nicely. I recently got him up to Level 100 Weaponsmith along with the cool cloak that comes with it. I’ve been working on getting Far Seas Tradeskill Ferrin currency to get runes made for his gear. Now I’m working on collection quests from the Altar of Malice expansion. Beolf has a bunch of Green Gems to go to complete his armor set but that’s good because I enjoy having a reason to run instances. I enjoy working towards long term goals. Everquest knows what I love. Working like a little hamster going on a wheel that never ends. Superbowl XLIX this sunday! GO HAWKS!!!
Life is good. The Seahawks beat the Panthers to advance to the NFC championship game and I’ve been having fun doing Heroic Dungeons in Everquest 2 with friends and guildmates. Friday I grouped with the gnome brigade of Reddranth the Paladin, Colossus the Beastlord and of course Nindakin the Inquisitor. We did some contested Highkeep and some Heroic dungeons. Best of all my Ranger Dwarf Beolf got a shiny new Fabled Bow to shoot bad guys with. Life is good.
Merry Christmas! I finally got my new Ranger to Level 100 and 340 AA points. I did a little of the Tears of Veeshan expansion before moving on to the latest expansion Altar of Malice. I’ve completed the AoM questline and I’m working on upgrading my gear and spells now. I want to thank Nindakin for helping me understand the different new gear and all the crazy buffs and stat soft caps and hard caps. Basically everytime I get a piece of gear I have to ask Nin if it’s any good. I’m enjoying the new content and having fun learning my new character. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Go Seahawks!
Beo Jr made it to about level 67 with me. It was fun but I doubt he will be playing anymore. It gets boring without friends to group with. I told him all the groups are at the level 100 and that’s a long grind away. But I’m going to power on and try to get there without losing all hope. My strategy is to grind out quests while listening to sports and comedy pod-casts. Beovaldr the Dwarf Ranger is now Level 86 and a half and is grinding away in a deserted Velious. Nindakin took pity on me grinding quests in god awful Kunark and took me on a Seb-run from levels 76 to 85. Praise Odin. I know these next 14 levels are going to be rough. Wish me luck!
I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween. Beo and Beo Jr’s characters reached level 50 today in Permafrost. Beo Jr was pleased to find out he can now illusion himself into a skeleton. I also have been working on my old guildhall in New Halas – The Viking Fellowship. Maybe my old friends Nin or Red will re-join but I doubt it. So right now it is a 2 man guild which is fine.
