Postcards from Book 8
Giving a Morroval-Mistress a decent spanking in the Hall of Mirrors
The new Epic Book arrived to LotRO EU a week ago, with new instances, quest revamps and the summer festival. Out of those I've only checked out the new instances, which are... brilliant! There's now two new three-man instances, one six-man and also a 12-man raid (which I probably won't be visiting anytime soon, because my kin doesn't appear too motivated). The smaller instances are relatively short and feature lots of puzzles - and what's interesting is that as a Lore-Master I'm once again able to feel useful as a crowd-controller (as opposed to my dps role in pretty much every part of Moria). Though of course going all-out dps in there is also very fun and rewarding.
Hard Mode in the Water-Wheels: killing a dozen Caerogs. Gaah, how I hate the sound they make!
I love doing the 3-man instances, they're so short and don't require that much preparation - grabbing two random people is so much easier than asking for a tank&healer and then checking that everyone's ready and prepared, knows what a corruption effect looks like, spends more time hitting skill buttons than picking their nose, etc.
Not relevant to the post, but we cleared the entire kitchen of Fil Gashan today, after that did the real boss fight there AND the Captain class quest. Talk about tons of adds..
