CAG Lord of the Rings Online Kinship

Thanks for the reminder Draekon. Do you need to get the quest, or just head up in that area and look around? Also, are there any nasty high-level critters up there or do you think it is accessible to toons at any level?


Level 10 quest (Might be able to get it before 10, don't know). Here's details on it where it is and where to turn it in:

http://lotro.mmodb.c...riners-1674.php

Once completed you can buy three different cosmetic items from the quartermaster. Each item costs 25 bottles and 10 casks (total of 75 & 30) which you can easily get going up towards the captain (and then I basically used my map recall to bree and used travel back to buckland).



EDIT: On rare occasion a waterlogged locker will spawn in place of a keg or crate. These are light armored level 35 hats. Not bad for Loremaster or Rune Keepers.

Yep, definitely spawn in rare waterlogged lockers. Logged on and then bam, I found one:

Which net me First Mate's Hat and Eyepatch, a level 35 hat. Should be decent for my class too.

Just so you know, we can't add you until you complete the tutorial instance (optional) and then the newbie area. You'll be level 6 or 7 when you leave there by going through a solo instance.

I will get around to starting a new character on Riddermark here soon and I will post back with my details. When I was a subscriber I had a couple characters on Brandywine, so if any CAGs have characters on that server I would be down to play over there too.

D2D has the VIP starter pack for $14.95 after $5 code (PAX or PAX2010). While not as good as the $4.95 a week back, it gives 1000 Turbine points and a month of VIP (for an additional 500 Turbine points and other bonuses). Completely worth it, and you can stack Shadows SE and Moria on it for extra VIP months.

Just as a note of clarification if anyone is going to hunt these down.

There are 3 lvl 35 rare items which are the First Mates Hat, First Mate's Eyepatch, and First Mate's Hat and Eye Patch.

There are also 3 lvl 45 rare items which are the same as the ones above except they are the Captain's variety instead of the First Mate.

Sent out some improved crafting tools to seven people and myself yesterday. When the other people start either playing more or leveling up more I'll throw a set their way.

You should really take up Explorer at least so you can sell ore/ingots and logs/planks. They sell pretty decent and you'll end up with some gems from mining that'll sell decently well too. However at this point you'd need to grind the first tier since you're basically into tier 2 nodes now.

Though if you don't want to, it doesn't matter either.

I hear you and I read up a bit on it but it's too much time from me that I don't have. Usually, I play by drop if the game does not drop it chances are my character won't have it. All of my ingame currency and Turbine points will go towards making my character as fast as possible so I can get stuff done as fast as possible.

Kinda strange question to ask, but what's the lowest level that Mines of Moria expansion content (quests and zones) becomes relevant/playable? If it's like 45+ I'll just not add the key right away and resell on eBay if I don't like the game as much as I imagined I would.

Hey, can you invite "Sneakythief" to the Kinship? Teamed up with him last night and was interested in joining up but I wasn't able to send the request myself.

Thx.

Moria is a level 50-60 expansion. Keep in mind your Moria key will give you access to two additional classes (Rune-keeper and Warden) if you are interested in trying those. I believe it also gives you two additional character slots.

And free VIP for 30 days (even if you buy it with TP if I heard correctly).

I played a lvl 50 hunter and quit right before MoM came out. I logged back in and clueless and rusty on the hunters. Can anyone fill me in on some of the changes or how to get back in the swing of things? I made a RK and am having fun, but really miss the hunter

I'm not so sure you'll get +30 VIP days with TP purchase of MoM. I know I didn't get +30 days when I purchased SoM with TP (the only way you can purchase). Regardless, the $9.99 Amazon deal is less expensive and definitely does get you +30 days (unless you are using an account that has already been upgraded to MoM).

nice, have a level 10 a 12 and a 1 on riddermark just popped in to see which server the clan is on and surprisingly the cag clan is on riddermark.

crystalklear64 - Wasp/Human Burglar - Gheed/Dwarf Hunter, Jams/Hobbit Minstrel

tried out all the classes except the two pay ones and the burglar has been the most fun so far, though the minstrel also has it charms (mainly discovering that I could hook up my usb keyboard and play actual songs albeit with forced time signatures in game.)

Tjinn hobbit minstrel, I'd like to join.

What was the final consensus on younger players? My boys 10 and 12 play too. They are pretty mature for their age but I understand if ppl dont want younguns in the kin.

I think most ppl here are OK with playing with all ages.

Personally, I'm OK with giving it a shot, but I do have two concerns you might want to consider before making a decision:

If for some reason it doesn't work out, they could be asked to leave at some point. I dont' expect this to happen, but who knows.

The other concern is that, since we are assusming the kin members are "mature", someone (possibly me), might not realize their age and could say something you might consider inappropriate. I wouldn't want to teach them any bad habits or new words and I certainly have a few bad habits I could unintentionaly pass on ;).

I think we've got a good group of people so far so I don't think this is a big concern, but each parent needs to decide for themselves what they want to expose their kids to.

What time zone are you in?

I tend to play a lot when I first get into a game like this, trying to hit the max level with my main toon, so I've been on in the evenings (west coast) on weekdays and will likely be on various times on the weekends.

However, I expect my weekday time will decrease over the coming weeks as I get leveled up and start to catch up on other things in life.

Neither my wife or I swear but we don't try to pretend to our kids that others don't. We have a friend who always forgets not to swear when she is around our kids and they smirk and leave the room when she starts in.

They are not perfect but they are good kids and I don't worry about minor exposure to someone in a mmorpg because I trust our parenting and their judgement.

Pretty much everybody is fine with whatever age as long as they are mature.
