I've been really much into SWTOR lately. Somehow there's this feeling that there are so many fun things to do, while I don't have this urge in LotRO. On top of that, many friends have either returned to the game or started a free-to-play account. I forgot how much fun it was to play together with friends.
First there are three 'real life' friends that love to do lowbie-PvP with us and joined our guild yesterday. Together, we play a scoundrel (healer) and two shadows; Tiger plays his vanguard and I gunslinger Y-u'no. We have great fun over Skype while playing and I hope this will go on for a while.
Then there are two lotro-wiki friends that separately have been leveling jedi consulars on Tython. I've taken great delight in sending out my army of crafters to gear them up, and took them on a tour to the datacrons of Tython. I even rolled a second sage to level a bit duo with one of them (picture above, I already had all four jedi classes leveled past Tython). Not sure what I'll do with her - perhaps I'll keep her and do some lowbie PvP healing: my main sage is level capped, after all.
A cookie for those who can discover Delanee on this picture - now that's natural stealthiness!
Last night, I couldn't sleep at all. Around 5 am I finally gave up trying and went in-game. The fleet was pretty much deserted save the occasional general chat lunatic. But there was my American F2P friend, willing to let me
drag him into show him his first flashpoint, Esseless. My shadow Delanee was around the right level (12), so there we went, two shadows and two green monsters. Everything went smooth (apart from two ocassional deaths, which we will conveniently forget) and at the end we looked like twins, wearing the same crafted and Esseless gear! Good times.
