WE DID IT!!! (me and my warden that is). Through farming LPs and earning enough gold, I was able to buy a number of experience boosts and within no time at all my wonderful warden reached level 75 and got himself a war steed!
Just look at the two of them! My beautiful red-haired boy and his even more beautiful red-roan steed 🙂 I’m so happy this day has come! It was recently my birthday, so I decided that I had earned a $50 gift from me to me. This is how I spent it. Was it the most reasonable use of money? Maybe not. Do I regret it? Definitely not xD
It was an interesting road getting here. For one thing, it has been an absolute pleasure to quest with a warden – I never really appreciated how OP they are until I was mowing down mobs 5 levels higher than me. I also took the time to explore a bit in regions I hadn’t really quested in before – turns out there’s this whole story line in Enedwaith about forest spirits and Lotro’s own version of the Wild Hunt – complete with a mystical, 10 foot tall man with glowing eyes and antlers on his head. The quest chain led me through ancient rituals and finally to the Hall of the Huntsman himself.
I also got to go talk to a bunch of different animal spirits from the forest, the last being a giant silvery stag who put me through a test of wisdom! I’m serious – I had to actually solve a logic problem – like in early math class. It wasn’t by any means difficult, but it was really cool to find something like this in game.
So anyways, I had a good day 🙂 Now onto my minstrel! Ooh!!! And I have to drop by the ox-clan merchant camp to get some of those Isengard Warden sets!
Warden's new Steed:
Coat: dappled (flaxen chesnut)
Tail: simple (red roan)
He still needs a name…that’ll take some time…
