    Not sure about how experience works from the Freep side of things as I play as a Monster Player. With them there's no conventional levelling as you start at level 65, instead there's ranks and Destiny points that you spent on traiting up your Monster, and buying new skills. To gain ranks you get infamy for every freep you kill or help kill, and reputation can be gained and lost from killing and dying. Fairly sure reputation is just e-peen though.


    On the EU server, Snowbourne, there's actually been a ton of really decent fights lately, often with at least 2 full raids clashing all over the Ettenmoors. Of course there's still a fair bit of standing around waiting for the other side to make a move, but this is normally brought to an end when reinforcements arrive for either the Freeps or the Monsters.
    Yeah, people on the US servers are getting increasingly afraid of in-game death. It's pathetic. You lose nothing from death.

    Still nobody around the 26-ish levels willing to do a few skirmishes? EU Snowbourne.

    Wow, everything becomes extremely boring once you've hit like lvl36.

    You have nothing to do anymore.

    It's mostly just doing quests till you get to Moria. The fun started there for me.

    Around that level I bought the Evendim Quest Pack using Turbine Points, that was plenty of content up to around level 40. Although I recently subbed as the game really is worth it. Besides for that 9.18 you get around 30 quids worth of stuff unlocked on your first sub (Permanent riding skill, traits, unlimited gold cap etc).

    As a Warleader, I excel in running into the thick of it and dying.

    Decided to try the game out, it seems pretty quiet around the starting areas. or maybe it's my server, it's a UK one, people have jobs and that. Is it worth carrying on for free, it's unlikely that I'll get much money soon

    It's free, there's no reason it wouldn't be worth it.

    Yup, also Snowbourne. This game massively picks up from level 40 onwards. The general questing in Angmar + Misty Mountains is ten times better than the drab that was Lone Lands/North Downs.

    I'm pretty good at dying too, seeing as I have around 15,000 deaths on my Reaver. :)

    Okay, I'm a level 26 freebie and I don't know where to level. Skirmishes are getting repetetive and slower whereas Lone Lands, atleast the quests I'm doing, are filled to brim with elite mobs.

    Free leveling pretty much hits a brick wall after 20. That's just how the game is designed.

    Soo i finally got the game downloaded and just played through the Elf starting zone. So far i like the game quite a bit the mechanics are nice and ive allways been a fan of The Lord of The Rings so the lore is an added bonus =p But is the game worth investing money in? I couldn't find how much the vip costs and how long it lasts etc but if someone could tell me thatd be awesome. Also is 500 turbine points a month going to be enough? Or am i going to find myself investing more money in turbine points?

    Vip is one month's worth of subscription and costs like 10-15$.

    Edited:

    I haven't bought gametime in ages so I don't remember what it costs.

    Just reached the point where I can start on Legendary Items and it's so good. I can't wait for the update for so much more customization. This game has kept me addicted solidly. Shut up turbine and take my money.

    On my current weapon (champion axe 2nd age) the only good legacy I have is +% Critical Magnitude. At the same time I am levelling another 2nd age champion's axe, but this one got -Battle-Frenzy CD, +% Remorseless Strike dmg and +% AoE dmg.

    I have yet to find a good 3rd/2nd age bow from a drop. They all have sucky legacies. All the ones in the AH are way overpriced.

    Yeah, depending on your class, it takes a lot of time and/or luck to get a decent LI. The update should help a lot with getting a good one.

    no, ive got to the point where the main quest chain is taking me through it, ive been to rivendell and (gladly) got a travel route but when it comes to doing the deeds, i hate knowing that i would have to kill them again or revisit that place just because i didnt buy the area
