Lotro: Misty Mountains Slayer Deed Guide, Episode 1, Giants & Trolls & Bears, Oh! My!

MMintrooutro

As the poem goes.. Far over the misty mountains grim, To dungeons deep and caverns dim, We must away, ere break of day, To win our harps and Lotro Points from him! …The 1st episode of the Misty Mountains Slayer Deed Guide is here! In this episode we hunt down Giants, Trolls & Bears, 3 Deeds at once. This grind is intended for a small fellowship (Unless you are over leveled) Trolls & Giants are all elite level mobs, and are packed pretty tight in some places. You also have to keep an eye out for Roving Threats, level 100+ Boss Level mobs that appear in random places. You can also find rare spawns that drop shards easily in the Misty Mountains, When a white out blizzard appears, that means that a rare spawn creature is close by, if you are a hunter you can track these mobs, if not.. well, good luck..

 

 

Troll Slayer, Tier 1: 50 Kills, Tier 2: 100 Kills

As if the biting cold in the Misty Mountains wasn’t bad enough, it seems to have given rise to a particularly unpleasant breed of troll. These creatures thrive in the ice and frost, and they lurk here waiting to crush and devour any traveller unlucky enough to cross their paths. Your own prowess has served to protect you from them thus far, and you have made a fair tally against the monster. If only that were the end of it …With a cruelty as cold and sharp as the ice that coats teh peaks and ridges of the Misty Mountains, the trolls here have striven to destroy you and your companions — but in this aim, they have failed, and you have proven yourself their match and more. Yet they do not cower from you, for their hearts are frozen, and death holds no fear for these brutes, no matter how swiftly you deal it out.

Bear Slayer, Tier 1: 80 Kills, Tier 2: 160 Kills

You have heard that the giants sometimes breed the largest bears as pets – and that would not surprise you. They grow them big here in the Misty Mountains – really big. You have never seen bears this large or aggressive before. Those rumours you had heard about the giants raising them as pets must have been true, for no other explanation makes sense. Nevertheless, you have taught the beasts to respect your prowess — though it has not improved their attitude towards you one bit.

Giant Slayer, Tier 1: 50 Kills, Tier 2: 100 Kills

You had thought these great creatures must be legend and myth when you were told stories of them by your parents. Not anymore. Their strength is as great as their size, and their bravery that of a creature that knows it is unmatched. Nevertheless, your valour has brought down a fair number of these foes, despite their immensity. Since you first laid eyes upon these huge creatures as they stepped towards you through the driving snow, you have become something of an old hand at fighting them. Their size can be used against them, and their brains have definitely given way to brawn. Nevertheless, you know that the day you become careless or complacent is the day you will find yourself being pounded feet-first into a frozen grave.

Lotro: Evendim Slayer Deed Guide, Episode 5! Goblin Slayer!

The final episode of The Evendim Slayer Deed guide is here. In this episode I show you the best place to grind out your Goblin Slayer Deed! This is a painful deed, due to the traveling you must do! But I will let Elahndria show you around! Stay Tuned, the next region I will be covering is The Misty Mountains!

 

The scourge of the goblins appears to be everywhere these days, even on the borders of the Shire itself. Rumour has it that in Evendim, a new breed of the foul creatures can be found in the odd-looking Boggarts — cowardly sniveling things that hunt in packs to bring down their prey. It seems that the goblins in southern Evendim have not yet come in great numbers; perhaps they are only here to harry the folk of the Shire and distract the Rangers from more important goals elsewhere. Nonetheless, the goblins use deep tunnels to move about beneath the sight of the keenest-eyed scout, so they can come forth suddenly in great numbers to wreak havoc upon the unprepared. ( https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Goblin-slayer_(Evendim) )

There is little pride to be had in the defeat of the goblins — they are hardly suitable opponents — yet many a brave warrior has been overwhelmed by their numbers or cunning devices of war, so it is best not to underestimate them. You have taken a great toll upon the goblins in Evendim, but at times it seems like a futile gesture, given the rate at which they replenish their numbers. Only an army could hope to inflict lasting harm on their forces. ( https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Goblin-slayer_(Advanced)_(Evendim) )

Lotro: Flash Back Friday! Into The Wild

flashback-friday

Flash Back Friday is a new category here at the blog, where I showcase some of the older videos I have made, some go as far back as 2007. I will do my best to get one out every week, but we will see how it goes.

Open-mouthed smile …anyway.

These two videos were recorded back in 2012. Its part of the “Into The Wild” video series, A general exploration of Middle-earth, including some helpful information. It could be a reputation grind, a trophy hunt, repeatable quests, just about anything. In these two videos I show you what to expect when doing the Bree-land Daily Quests. Im pretty sure the quests, and the public instances are still the same as as you see in this video, However, The town of Bree was revamped after this video was recorded.. you can see what Bree looked like before they changed it. So glad I was able to capture this. To be able to look back at how it used to be is fun.

Anyway! Hope you enjoy the series!

Part 1: Includes run through Bree Town, Pre-Revamp & 3 Repeatable quests

 

Part 2: Covers remaining daily quests.

You can find more videos of the “Into The Wild” video series here at my blog  >>Click Here<<

Lotro: Evendim Slayer Deed Guide, Episode 4

Before I make these posts, I always hit-up Google to find some Lore on the region involved with the video guides I create, to learn more about the world that Tolkien created. So I figured why not include links to the sites in my Blog post so that others can take a moment to learn more as well. For me this information enhances my immersion while im playing the game. So look for the highlighted text in my posts, yellow highlight indicates sources from outside the game, Orange indicates in game information. Plain red text hyperlinks go to off topic sites.

Map_-_Evendim

Our adventure today takes us to The Hills of Evendim, or Emyn Uial in Sindarin, a series of hills in northern Eriador. To find your way in game, head to the north-eastern part of the shire, and you will find a path leading to Oatbarton, the 1st populated area in Evendim. From there you will follow the road north till you come to where Lake Evendim drains into the Brandywine River, cross and stay north till you get to the crossroads in Parth Aduial, Then turn left to get to Tinnudir, on a small island in the eastern most part of Lake Evendim, from there, Elahndria will show you the way… Hope you enjoy the video!

 

 

 

Evendim Giant Slayer: Emyn Uial, Northern Evendim

A tribe of Stone-giants appears to have taken up residence in the western hills above Evendim. While not so great in stature as their legendary cousins in Misty Mountains, they are nevertheless powerful opponents when aroused and more than a match for any lone soldier. No-one seems to know where the allegiance of the giants lies — indeed, it seems likely that they serve none but themselves, given their capricious nature. Nevertheless, should these lands fall to the Enemy, the giants would doubtless be pressed into his service as terrible soldiers. ( https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Giant-slayer_(Evendim) )

You have taken the measure of the Stone-giants of Evendim — and they are quite tall. You had always imagined that something so large could not possibly move very fast, but you have been disabused of that notion quickly enough. The approach of a giant is often heralded by a boulder tumbling out of the mist towards a hapless traveller, or by the thunderous splintering of a shattered tree idly crushed by the creature’s passage. The passing of a giant, however, is universally defined by the momentous thud of its lifeless body crashing to the earth as you complete your handiwork.

Lotro: Evendim Slayer Deed Guide, Episode 3.. Kergrim Slayer

ScreenShot00020

Many of the foul Kergrim appear to have infested the valley in which the tombs of the ancient Dúnedain kings can be found. No doubt the Rangers of the North are enraged by the potential desecration of their ancestors’ tombs by these beasts, but they can spare few men to root them out. ( The Kergrim seem to delight in consuming carrion and bones of any sort — including their own kind, should the opportunity arise. What perverse evil might have created such a repulsive creature, you cannot say, though many have fallen at your hand. Your efforts to destroy the Kergrim infesting Evendim have been fruitful, but some of the beasts persist in the area. With luck, the Rangers charged with guarding these lands will be able to eliminate the remaining Kergrim in due time.) Lore curtesy of Lotrowiki: https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Kergrim-slayer

 

This is one of the more painful deeds in Evendim, if you are only doing deeds to gain Lotro Points.. then I would skip this one.. it is very do-able.. but quite difficult if someone else is farming  them.. If you are doing them for the traits.. then slay away!! Beware that some of these mobs are signature, so if you are on level, watch out!

Lotro: Evendim Slayer Deed Guide, Episode 2: Limrafn, Salamander & Tomb-defender

ScreenShot00020

Todays adventure takes us to southern Evendim, Along the sandy beaches of the Brandywine River.. Man, Beast & Fell Spirits lurk in the shadows, preying on weary adventurers. In Episode 2/5 we take on 3 slayer deeds at once, Limrafn, Salamander & Tomb-defender.

 

Limrafn Slayer

The Limrafn are a lesser, weaker form of fell spirit. What draws them to Evendim in such numbers, not even the Elves can say. (You have encountered many of these strange lights in the lands of the Evendim, where great battles were fought in years long past. Though you have learned that they may be dispelled through force, you feel no closer to understanding their nature or purpose.)

Salamander Slayer

The Salamanders of Evendim have always been a rare sight. This odd offshoot of the family of dragons has a strong affinity for fire, which it wields with abandon against any enemy that disturbs it. (You have culled several of the salamanders that infest Evendim. The creatures have never been numerous, but now it seems that their numbers are steadily growing despite your efforts.)

Tomb-Defender

Tomb-robbers have long sifted through the ruined paths of Annúminas and the tombs of the fallen Kings of old. The Rangers of the North ally with any who would take up arms to keep these thieves and scoundrels at bay.

Lotro: Evendim Slayer Deed Guide, Gauradan-slayer Episode 1

screenshot00335

Folk tales have long spoken of werewolves stalking the night — but now that you have met the Gauredain, you suspect you know more of the truth of these tales. If they are Men, then they are only barely so. They are greater than most Men in stature, yet hunched over and using only primitive tools and speech and often dressing in the skins of wolves. (The Gauredain seem unremittingly hostile to the Free Peoples of the West. Whether they are in league with the Dark Lord is difficult to say, but you have defeated many of them despite their unusual strength and animal-cunning.) Lore Curtesy of Lotro Wiki: https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Gauradan-slayer_(Evendim)

 

 

 

Welcome to episode 1/5 of the Evendim Slayer Deed Guide. In this episode your guide Elahndria of Landroval takes you into the Northern Mountains of Evendim also known as Northern Emyn Uial, and shows you the best place I have found to grind out your Gauradan-Slayer Deed.

Lotro Slayer Deed Grind Episode #1

maxresdefault

As some of you may already know, I purchased the Gift Of The Valar to jump my Minstrel to level 95 so i could skip Rohan.. I’ve wait for years for Rohan to be released, and love the zones, but im sick and tired of Mounted Combat. I purchased the 2995LP version of the Gift Of The Valar and to my surprise I got a lot more than just a boost to level 95, mounts, gear, XP boosts & more.. and now I’m playing in Gondor and having fun again on my Minstrel without having to mess with Rohan. !YaY!

sindaloria

I’m enjoying it so much that I have decided that I’m going bring more of my characters up to level 95, Starting with my Captain. But, this time instead of out right buying the Lotro Points needed to purchase the Gift Of The Valar, I’m going to grind it out myself doing deeds. Those of you new to the blog may not have seen my post on how I grind out my LP. (Or Lotro Points) Here is a link to that guide here on this blog:

https://middleearthchronicles.wordpress.com/2013/09/24/turbine-point-grinding-guide/

I had intended to add a video series showing you how to do this as well, But the game has changed a year or two ago to the point where I lost interest in the game and moved on to play others. Now that Lotro is under new management, my drive to play has been revitalized and it only makes sense to me to continue where I left off making videos!

So finally! its here.. The video series that will accompany the blog post, I’ve noticed the some of the deeds have changed, so bear with me as I re-learn the system, I will make mistakes, and please point them out in the comments so others don’t get confused. As always, thanks for watching! Please Like, Subscribe to the blog and my YouTube channel, I do this for fun, and not to make money, So I hope you enjoy!

If you are using Google Chrome, the above video may not show because Google is dumb, and stopped supporting Java, You can use this link to watch it on my YouTube channel Instead.
