The November update finally hit the EU today. It meant lots of new horses, new vault and crafting panel and new LM skills. I was hoping we were going to get the winter festival but that doesn’t start until next week. *pouts*
Last night I completed my last rep faction that I need for the World Renowned Horse (the Algraig..they were a pain to get kindred with). So today I logged on and was immediately awarded with two horses! *cheers.

World Renowned Horse:
The only drawback with them is the flags. I don’t mind the flags per say, but they don’t seem to move naturally with the horse. I’ll more than likely keep using my Galahdrim War Steed, especially now that they updated it’s hit points (and rightly so!)
I spent a few G on the Rivendell horse as well 😛
I decided not to buy the Mathom horse as I just don’t think I’ll ever use it as cute as it is. I also saw on Casual Stroll to Mordor that there’s a new Malledhrim horse, but I wasn’t able to find it.
The new Loremaster skills are pretty cool (Frost Lore, Staff Sweep and in-combat pet summoning). I’m not too thrilled with their animations though, especially Frost Lore. First time I cast it, I was reminded of a fairy casting a spell. It’s going to look very funny on human male LMs. 😀
I noticed it puts some ice stuff on mobs:
We have a raid tonight so it will be interesting to try out the new debuff. Staff Sweep might be helpful on the LT as when your pet flanks you can use it to regain power. We shall see.
Now bring on the festival!
Last week I was by the Hall of Fire questing on my little champ Nenneth when I decided to pop in and hassle a friend who was rping there momentarily. Little did I know I was going to end up staying and meeting some great folks. I’m so glad I did as rp is something I’ve been wanting to get into. I met the lovely members of Loth-i-Lonnath (Curugirion, Aearandir, Durthand) and had an absolutely lovely time with them. So much so that I stayed up with them and my friend until the server was shutting down. It was so refreshing to find such accepting, inclusive and friendly people and great rp…especially after the fail of an event I’d attended the previous night with mass amounts of OOC spam and just downright non-inclusive people who were too wrapped up in themselves.
Loth-i-Lonnath held an event last night as they were travelling from Imladris back to the Havens and invited others to come along. I of course jumped at the opportunity to meet up with them and even finally sat down and worked up a background for a character…something I’ve been thinking about doing for a while. Funnily enough I’ve done this with an alt nowhere near being my main..but it’s worked out really well.
All in all the journey was lovely, until the end when a few people decided to hijack the event and try to make the show about them. I found it in extreme poor taste and to be the weak spot of the group (some of the rp was just atrocious…I’m a noob and I can see that!). Hopefully next week will be a bit smoother in that regard.
But yay! I’m very glad to be getting into this and have found such great people. Screenies after the jump!
