Happy New Year from Middle Earth

Happy New Year everyone.  I hope 2010 is awesome for you all and that it brings us to Rohan and Helms Deep!  I’ve submitted a screenshot for a contest at check it out and vote!  I like a couple of the scenery shots but scenery is boring without someone in it I always say!  What’s with the new desktop icon for lotro?  It actually says Lord of the Rings Online now.  I like the old one better with the inscription from the One Ring.  This new one looks like crap compared to the One Ring icon.  I made Capron fifty-ish morale potions yesterday after he threatened to quit leveling and to just tradeskill.  I guess he keeps getting beatdown in Moria.  Poor burglar.  Me thinks we should start doing the good ole Moria 6-mans with him.  The Viking Fellowship lowbies are staring to slowly but surely catch up.  Afastr is Level 47.  Nindrojrir, Derrigaul, Catlady and I all helped him complete his Uru class questing yesterday.  Capron is 54 I believe and Derrigaul is Level 56 at the moment.  Beowyf broke 200 gold yesterday which seems like a ton in lotro.  Lord of the Rings Online really seems to roadblock making alot of in game money compared to other MMOs.  Compared to other MMOs lotro also only increase characters uberness incrementally each expansion.  I remember in Everquest a new expansion would come out and your character would gain 5 levels, 5000 hitpoints and 10 spells and would be able to destroy earlier content like Ivan Drago vs Apollo Creed.  “If he dies, he dies”.  In lotro its hard for me to tell if Beowyf is beating lower mobs any faster since getting 5 more levels and new equipment in Siege of Mirkwood.  Maybe I need to find a parse program to use.  Happy New Years bitches!
