Level 20 at last!

Considering the fact that I have no Enhanced Experience, I'd say I got there quite fast as well. I still remember the good, or not so good, olden days when especially Bree-land hadn't been revamped yet and Wyn got level 20 by going around and killing stuff...on a guardian. Also, that was before the big experience revamp which netted me about five levels or so when it hit the live servers.

So compared to Wyn, Isquarieth is pretty quick. I still have lots of Bree-land quests to do, including almost the entire Old Forest, am nowhere near done in Ered Luin and haven't even been to the Lone-lands yet. I have to say, I'm very glad Turbine decided to make the Lone-lands free to all players (I know, it's been a while) as it enables players to gather enough Turbine Points to easily be able to buy a quest pack or maybe even two (on sale that is).

310 TP and lots of deeds still to be done.
Speaking of Turbine Points, I finally reached the 300 mark, and with lots of deeds still outstanding and my intention of doing all deeds available, I might even get to 450 or more before hitting the Lone-lands. And obviously there's a few instances to check out before moving on as well (Great Barrow and the Bree-land reputation barrows). I'm currently planning to go to Evendim afterwards, and then hopefully straight to Eregion and then into the Mines which will be much better apparently come Update 7.

I know people have mixed feelings about it, but I think it's going to be great. Making the place a bit lighter is on me the changes people feel strongly about...but given the fact that the dwarves are reclaiming Moria, it kinda makes sense. I will go and get the expansion pack, as it comes with my beloved Lore-breaker class (i.e. the Rune-keeper) and two character slots.

I intend to skip Mirkwood and rather go to Enedwaith or even Dunland after, but before I will go and level a Rune-keeper to get more Turbine Points. If needed (well, it probably will be needed) I'll level another Minstrel through the three starter areas (i.e. Ered Luin, the Shire and Bree-land) and maybe rinse and repeat. Yes, I know it'll take ages, but it's a fun thing to do when I'm not levelling or raiding on my main account.

For now the goal is finishing quests and deeds and then moving on to the Lone-lands. Will hopefully manage some of it over the long weekend; yay for bank holidays. Wish me luck!



  1. *wishes luck* and grats on your 20th level!

    So you are going to buy MoM with TP too and need to level multiple characters F2P for it to be able to? Oh dear! You are really crazy, did you know that? ;)

    1. Why thank you, Miss Nemesis :P But yeah, this is a purely f2p project, no money-spending allowed ;)
