Had this day off so waited until 0130 last night and patch was completed. Rescued the Hobbits, killed the wolves and spies, got the kingsfoil for the Hobbit. Joined Silverlode. Thanks for the offer. I think I have chosen a Captain class human. I really wanted to be like Aragorn but wasn't sure what that class would be. There was no Half Elf/Human option.

Well, for an Aragorn like character pre Two Towers, I'd go with a hunter. For Post Two Towers, I'd go with Champion or Captain. My Champion's name is Brynoch, so look him up anytime. When you need heavy armor, after 20 I believe, my dwarven smith, Bjornar, will help armor you for the battles to come.

How are the "Guilds" in the game? How are the people? My problem right now is the chat system. I guess I was spoiled by UO because it was so easy to use. Yeah very limited, but you type in words and press enter. New games offer alot but gee I know I was speaking but who knows who saw it.

Cool I am killing at the moment and haven't had the time to figure out the crafting options. It looks pretty deep and it appears you chose a primary and that automatically assigns two secondary support crafts which confused me. So back to killing. I have a million questions but can you try one, and if it doesn't work to my liking, do I get the option to choose another? I've been selling some pretty cool, but average stuff and would love to be able to use em. There is no end to wolf hides. I waited before signing up for LotR. It was reading those books that propelled me into RPGs' and ultima way back when.

When are you on? If you wish please PM me with character name, Mine is the sig I have for this board. If you need someone who can scream alot I am your captian hehehe

Are you guys on Silverlode on the US side, or EU?

Patching is horrid - and FAR worse if you haven't installed Mines of Moria. Installing the expansion applies all patches up to it's release, and since there hasn't been a book release yet, most of what you download are bug fixes or small changes.

After playing UO solid for 7/8 years I too found the 'system' in LOTR awkward at first.

However it does become second nature after a while.

Chatting in game to those around you in general is

/say

To chat just to your kin [guild ] mates is /kin
To send a message to Advice,Trade, Fellowship windows, again preceed with the forward slash.

Each different area ,town etc you enter will automatically access you to them.

To send a private message or 'tell' you can right click the persons name in the chat box and get a menu of ways to speak to them .

Hope that helps you a little better and stick with the game,it is awesome.

As much as I miss what I had in UO I absolutely love this game,and dont regret embarking on it.
