Just getting started
« on: December 21, 2012, 07:29:22 PM »

 So I have just started this game and I am not sure if I will like it or not but will have to get into the game. If I do end up playing this every now and then I will try and set up a Blackmoor guild. the I hope maybe others will join me for something different every now and then.

we'll see...it was originally supposed to be out in 2011, so i'll be surprised if it's great but will give it a try nonetheless ;)

I wonder if they will see a spike in people playing since the hobbit.  As much as I thought they butchered that movie, the Worgs looked awesome.

I saw it.. and really liked it.

Downloaded it from a site... and watched it on my PC (to TV) at home. :) um... not exactly a great copy but watchable without much to complain about.

Pale Orc, my ass.

Interesting the content builder will be a mechanic they are implementing first on LotRO, and then will be implementing on DDO.  Which greatly excites me, as I spent many long days scripting custom starcraft 2 campaigns.

I'm new to DDO and to the Guild (very pleased to be here, btw) but have been plaing lotro since closed beta in '06.  If any of you ever create a character on Silverlode (server), I've 5 level capped characters over there, and would be happy to assist in whatever ways you'd like.

Characters to contact, from most to least played:
  Moochinbras   - burglar - not much like rogue, apart from stealth, but some similarities.  good single target dps and debuffs
  Skop               - healing through music class.  more like cleric than bard, I'm guessing
  Glaistig           - champion.  melee dps, aoe capabilities.
  Elentir            - captain.  support class.  buffs, heals, melee dps.
  Setaanta       - warden.  odd class.  depending on stance toggles and gear, either 2nd best tank class (which can self heal), fairly good melee dps, or fairly good ranged dps.  probably the most interesting of the 5.  in the end, warden iscapable of amazing things if you really focus on it..... which I don't :)

The other 4 classes I've not really played as much, but will try to answer any questions.

-Waltheof.
(unless we're in lotro, where most people call me Moochi.)

Do you know if it is easy to move characters to another server?  I played briefly, and have 2 characters on Meneldor (This just happened to be the default server I was sent to when I created my first character).  As little as I've played so far (one level 20 hunter and level 9 minstrel, so minimal investment in them so far), it may be easier to simply start over on your server. 

All I did while playing was solo.  It would be nice to play with someone who knows the game well.

I've not done if myself, but unfortunately my impressions are that its not easy.  Turbine classifies it as a premium service, which means you have to pay to have it done, there is a wait period for it to be accomplished, and the service has repeatedly been unavailable for months at a time for reasons not made terribly clear. 

$24.95/ 21.95/ 18.95/ 2,995 Turbine Points (TP) per character, according to one page on the turbine site :
http://support.turbine.com/link/portal/24001/24001/Article/24/LOTRO-World-Character-Transfer-FAQs

Your choice to transfer or begin again.  I'd start over, myself :/
One note on server populations.  My server, Silverlode, is neither one of the largerst, nor one of the ones with the most successful raiding groups.
If you're interested in larger populations, I'd suggest Brandywine (raiding) or Elendimir (raiding) or Landroval (roleplay and events).  There are also other strong servers that were historically segregated European servers, but I know less of them.

Silverlode, unfortunately is probably best known for its trolls.  Its often just referred to as Dramalode.  But some of us are nice(ish) and anyone interested is certainly welcome!  I know its often fun to try out another game now and then :)
