Ettenmoors pvmp nights with wotv

Wisdom of the valar is hosting nights in the Ettenmoors twice a week. We’re eating from both platter with our nights out.

On tuesday we’re going to the creep side to fight the free people around 20 Cet we log over and gather at gramsfoot. We got a creep kin/tribe open to all or you can just join our group from your own. Creepside has 6 classes of which 1 is free for all. They are all independent of your character so any level can join.

On wednesday (used to thursday) we’re going with our own character to fight the creeps of this middle earth. We got a kin ofcourse, but since you’re in unified, you probably have one also ;). Freepnight usually start aroud either 20 Cet or 20:30 Cet depending on the host. Keep an eye out the unified channel that night for details.  Freep side battle is only open to vips though (there is a mithril coin option, but dont use that).

See you in the Ettenmoors

Mordrith down and more level 50 runs

Assault on Carn dum
2 weeks after Urugarth a team of 5 gathered at the doors of Carn dum to continue the assault on Angmars leaders. An unlikely fellowship of 50’s with a runekeeper, guardian, beorning, loremaster and a hunter entered there for the first time. With a 55 hunter we decided to forego finding a 6th from public.

The fellowship made its way to barchuil the bridge destroyer. He proved to be no match for our group. Helcham and his green poisonous waters proved to be a bigger obstacle then the simple angmarim outside. Running through the sewers to find our way into the tower the Morroval were quickly dispatched after ambushing us from their ceilings.

After looting the the key from their corpses we were able to enter the fortress itself. The beorning healing proved to be instrumental in the firey reflects of all the ancient evils inside that place.

With the loremaster power supply the hunter and runekeeper managed to keep up their long assaults on guruthul and Mordrith himself.
Further assault on Angmar
With several scaled instances, Urugarth and Carn dum down with 2 mixed groups. We’ll continue our assault on Angmars forces with Barad Gul and some return to the other instances. In the meantime we’ll gear up a bit and look for other fellows and perhaps assault the Rift itself at a later date.

Want to join us? Get a character to level 50 and use the stone of tortoise to disable experience and let us know your interest for future runs.

Level 50 content – Cap group

Wisdom of the valar is hosting a new activity. Gathers usually on friday or saturday for the level 50 cap group.

We organise nights for characters at a specific level. It’s an extra activity where players can build and play a charater to run content with. Some for nostalgia, others for a challenge, fun or just to team up without extra help from a max level kinnie. Players can log in specially for these nights or play their characters at other times. During these nights we’ll gather in a fellowship and decide what content we’ll do depending on classes, number of players and what people want to do.

Current level cap = 50
At this time the focus of the group is level 50. This was the level cap at the time lotro started and a lot of instances, epic line and other content available at this level range. At some point we’ll up the level cap 60. But at the moment we still have a lot of content to do at 50.

Objective
Have fun while doing level 50 content. Ofcourse we’d like to clear the Rift raid. But our short term goal is to get a nice group of people that are enjoying themself. Urugarth is our first main stop followed by carn dum. In the meantime we equip and battle other quests and instances like the examples.

Examples
We’ve done the epic book volume 1, Shire deeds, Angmar group quests. Few moria quests, flight of the dragon small fellowship at -4  level. Cleared Great barrows with 4 people. Gotten massacred when we tried the easy Iorbars peak and got massacred when we tried it on tier 2.

Rules
Be level 50 or below. We suggest you use a character thats not your main with an xp disabler (100 tp from the store). Level 51 isn’t that big an issue, but we have to draw a line somewhere ;).

Cap group (level 50)

Lang Rhuven quest chain – wednesday 20 Cet

As part of our request night. We’ll host a Lang rhuven quest chain night. Part of the quest chain to unlock the U20 resource instances. Its a 3 stage back and forth in a 200k mob infested area in the eastern part of the Waste. We’ll start at stage 1 at 20 Cet. Make sure you have done pre-quest and be on time. During the run we stay together to speed things up.

Prequest- Small 20 kill quest in skoironk area. Cave to the south west

The first step is to travel to the camp in the Slag Hills where you will find Candur and Tharindul (or something like that).  You can find the Slag Hills Camp because it shows on the map, just north of the Black Gate, there is a milestone.  Tharindul may or may not have some quests for you (depending on how far you have quested the region).  None of Tharindul’s quests lead to the Fellowship Instnace, so don’t worry if he has no quests for you; you don’t need them for this.  Turn instead to Candur.  We can now unlock your resource dailies in 8 steps.

1.)  If you have not already started working on Candur’s quests, he should have just one quest for you: The Slag Hills.  This quest is to kill 20 enemies in the Slag Hills.   Complete this quest as it is the first necessary step towards unlocking the Fellowship Resource Dailies.

Step 2,3 and 4 Each containing 3 quests in Lang Rhuven area

2.)  After completing and turning in the quest The Slag Hills at Candur, Candur should now have 3 additional quests for you, all involving Lang Rhuvan (a large fellowship difficulty Easterling Camp east of the Slag Haills camp.  Of the first 3 quests from Candur, you only need to complete Lang Rhuvan: The Escape.  Its best to do this with a group.  It’s the quest where you release a horse from the Easterling stables and protect it as it makes it’s way outside the camp.  Any member of your group who needs this quest must talk to a horse once and hit continue quest.  When the group is all ready, have one member of your group speak with a horse again and the horse will begin his escape.  Kill any mobs in the horses path, but try not to bring in extra mobs who are not aggroed, as the horse will not move until he is out of combat.  When the horse finally exits the camp head back to the Slag Hills camp and turn it in.  If you have been working on the other Lang Rhuvan quests from this first set of quests it is not necessary to finish them.  If the purpose of your group is to unlock the instances and you have a large group, it’s best to stay focused on the task at hand and leave the other quests for later.

3.) If you have completed Lang Rhuvan: the Escape, Candur will now have 3 more quests.  Of this second set of Lang Rhuvan quests, it’s only necessary that you complete Lang Rhuvan: the War Party.  To complete this quest head to the Southern entrance (the main entrance) to Lang Rhuvan and follow the road into the camp east as far as you can go.  You will reach a dead end.  At this point have your group had all the way up to the dead end where you will fight waves of Easterlings.  To complete the quest you must stand your ground for 3 minutes and 30 seconds.  Please do have your group again the far east side of the dead end because if any leave the area the quest will fail.  Once the timer is up, the waves will stop and you may return to the Slag Hills camp to turn in your quest.  Again, if you have additional open quests in Lang Rhuvan, but you are working on unlocks in a large group, it is really best to stay focused and leave the unfinished quests for later.

4.) Once you have completed and turned in Lang Rhuvan: The War Party, Candur will have 3 more quests.  Of this final set of Lang Rhuvan quests, you only need to complete Lang Rhuvan: The War Leaders.  Travel to the Northern entrance of Lang Rhuvan (a path between rocks, you probably recognize it as the place the horse left the camp).  This entrance is the closest to the War Leaders.  There are 2 named Easterling bosses not far from this entrance.  Kill them and return to Candur in the Slag Hills Camp.
