LotRO: Taking a Break

So yeah LotRO has slowed to a crawl. Sure I could spend all of my time in instances and level faster, but really I’m just frustrated with the game. I enjoyed the idea of making armour for my Kinship, but I don’t feel like waiting 6 weeks to complete a full set of armour and/or grind up and spend a stupid quantity of time/coin on materials for single use patterns. Especially when I need to be saving coin to spend on training for new skills.

I haven’t cancelled my subscription, and I’m still logging in once in a while, but yeah I just don’t have a whole lot of motivation to log into the game right now. I need to get in a little recruiting for my Kinship (hopefully to find someone to replace me).

    Ah, sounds like the mid-30′s blues are setting in. I’ve left 4 characters in the 30′s, and it wasn’t until i hit 40 and Angmar with my champ, that I felt the grind break.
    I also left crafting behind. I needed the money and it was such a drag trying to level my smithing around Master level.

    Yeppers. That and I’ve been dinking around in Ryzom so that’s been making it tough to go back.

    I’m glad to know that on the crafty front it’s not just me though. That whole system seems to be at least a little borked.

    Yeah , I’m smack in 30s blues too. For me its the riduculous amount of group quests that’s killing me.

    That and the fact every zone looks more or less the same. I mean they are gorgeous but its all looking alike. And killing boars, wolves, spiders and goblins all the time… need a change.

    I don’t know if I will continue or not.

    Damn I need a new mmo.

      I know what you mean. That’s kind of where I’m at with LotRO too. It’s a great game and very pretty. I’ve just got a feeling that they drug out things a bit longer than necessary just to keep people subscribed.
