LotRO: A thieving we will go
Come a little closer, I’d like to pick your pocket!
I never imagined Burglar would win the poll for which class I roll in my ‘restart’ to LotRO. I was afraid Hunter or Warden would win and was hoping for Champion or Lore-Master. You guys are sneaky! Also, what’s up with that poll? I set it to run for seven days exactly but it looks like you can still vote. Weird! I don’t know how to make it stop taking votes but after seven days, Burgs had 12 votes, more than any other class so a Burglar I will roll.
I’d like to apologize for starting a poll that would end at such an incredibly busy time, Thanksgiving. That did not compute for me when I started it, that it would end during my three-day-cooking fest for my family. I’ll be rolling this Burglar next week most likely. I’d like to do so this week as I’m jonesing for some LotRO time (I miss The Shire! And the Lonelands! Running through fields of flowers! I even miss Angmar!) but I’m behind on a project deadline (self-imposed as well as self-to-blame-for-being-behind) and need to put as much attention to it as I can this week. I’ve only ever done this in betas but I think I’m going to go with a randomized appearance (I’m scared! Bring on the wrinkles!) and another randomized name. May need you guys to help me learn to pronounce it as I did with the other Burg I had. Hmm, how funny I’m letting the computer chose names for another Burglar.
Or maybe I’m just lazy.
My plan is to work this Burglar and no other class. I’ve played two Burgs before, one getting to lvl 35 before deleting her and the other to lvl 22. This one I intend to get as high as I can. I do not have Helm’s Deep yet so that means lvl 85, if I can stick with it long enough. I say *if* because I’m still so unsure about the class changes. /Sigh
I do not plan to pick a crafting profession and will skirmish my little heart out once I’ve unlocked them. I deleted my ENTIRE inventories on both accounts so I have nothing to help me level faster. I think this is a good thing since I’m wanting to hit the game completely fresh. I am dreading the choice when I’ve finished the Lonelands. Do I go to the North Downs (not a fan) and start Esteldin or can I go ahead and jump into Evendim quests? I don’t remember but think when going the Evendim route I usually hit Oatbarton after finishing up the Lonelands. I’d LOVE to run the Garth Argawen this go round as I haven’t done them in a few years. I must get over my ‘easier to just solo’ line of thinking so I can enjoy more of the content like I used to.
Great Barrows anyone? Oh, wait, I need to roll the character first and get to level … 18? 20? Which is best for running GB?
