I've logged on for a couple of their free weekends. I was reminded that I like the atmosphere of that game, but I didn't get much done, since none of my friends were online.

I'd be interested to do some groupage with the old gang. :D
Wait...where in the hell is the mission door?

Once it get's free I'll try it. Did it with DDO and played for a while but stopped once I got to the quests where you MUST be in a group to complete them. I guess I'll see u in the fall :)

Since I have a lifetime subscription, I decided to check it out again after a long break. I've made my way through a good chunk of Moria, but would be happy to run through the early stuff with my lower-level characters.

The legendary weapons (customizable weapons that level up) and skirmishes (quick, instanced battles for 1+ players) are really a lot of fun. And of course, there is the epic storyline. I've forgotten about some of the great bits in LotRO.

I'm on the Windfola server, with the usual range of character names: Cael, Vael, Dael, Gael, Bael, Hael... And of course the kinship/guild name of "Ael House". Gimme a holler if you decide to check it out.

I played Moria but not the last expansion. I looked for Cael but never saw him on.... I'd certainly be willing to play it again. It's nice cause you dont need Teamspeak....
I logged on one of the free weekends also.
I am of course Kalia....the Loremaster for those of you who have forgotten......

I logged back in DDO to have a feel how LotRO will be in the fall. The free part of the game won't have enough content to level without grinding XP. In DDO I have to repeat some dungeons 4-5 times ( after the 3rd time the XP u receive gets less and less) to level up. Good thing I bought the 32-point build toons so at least I can solo little bit better. Need a cleric and a rogue pls :)

That's one thing about LotRO; there's tons of content and I usually have to abandon quests once I've out-leveled an area and starting picking up more level-appropriate quests. Of course, the epic storyline quests are the most entertaining.

BTW I am in the beta (again lol). SO far it looks like the same thing they did with DDO but a lot easier to get Turbine points and a lot more to spend them on in the store. If anyone gets in the beta u know who to look for :) You get only one toon with the free version (with option to buy more)!

Is anyone gonna play? I played the beta and enjoyed it quite a bit. I will definitely be doing this.

I'm mostly running around as Vael, so I can check out the new content, so add that name too.

How's it going for you folks? I'd play, but honestly, I rarely get on the computer before 9 my time if at all. Mickey Mouse is one hell of a boss!

Anyone down for a one-night-a-week group? For a couple of hours, we could run lowbies of the same level/quests. I think it could be fun. I mean, we're all playing different games and have other stuff going on, but maybe this would be something to do together, for free.
