Free music from me – Echoes of Skyrim

I was waiting for Final Cut to render a 4 hour long 1080p movie I am editing and decided, “hey why not tax the processors in my Mac even more?”  God I love my Mac Pro…  dual quad core procs just don’t give a fuck like honey badgers.

Garageband_Skyrim

Anyways I fired up Garageband and started goofing around with some synth.  An hour and a half later I had this. So I am gifting to the world some free music.

Stepping into The Wavecrest Tavern

Deciding to branch out and experience different MMO’s with an open enthusiasm I downloaded and installed Dungeons & Dragons Online, another Turbine game.  So far I am still in the starter town and my respawn is set for The Wavecrest Tavern.  When comparing Lotro to DDO, they are wildly different so my learning phase of DDO is going to be extended.  Having said that, I am loving my experience so far.

DJ_DDO_Wavecrest_TavernWhen I play DDO, I am having nostalgic flashback feelings to when I played AD&D (2 and 3.5) tabletop. I would spent nearly entire nights at my friends house, rolling dice and drinking Pepsi like it was water.  The room was constantly smokey with coffee stains everywhere. We would laugh, fight, argue rule sets, and sometimes throw dice at each other.  Flash forward to me playing DDO, and I am seeing the underlying mechanics and rule sets of how DDO operates and I instantly understand how the game will react based upon my choices.

The first town gets you familiar with all the game mechanics and elements. I absolutely love the narration on all the events and quests by the dungeon master.  I even spent a few minutes to step up to the bar and try to RP.  In The Wavecrest Tavern, as expected people jump into the starter area and then do their best to leave as fast as possible so RP is kind of pointless.  But that didn’t stop Yorge from enjoying an Ale!

DJ_DDO_PuzzleOne notable entry level quest you are given is to recover a scroll from the town storage building, which of course is not as simple as walking in and grabbing it. No, my good friend, in typical RPG format the building is crawling with spiders and rats.  I can accept this. One task in particular that was interesting was the final puzzle it gives you to free the scroll from the pedestal. The player must flip tiles around to make a rudimentary electrical or magical circuit to free the scroll.  It was this simple puzzle that gives me hope to expect fantastic experiences in the future from DDO.  Lotro has many excellent quest lines and such, but to my knowledge there were few actual puzzles.  And the puzzle-like experiences I can possibly remember so far, the system practically gives you the answer or holds your hand to work you through the riddle.  In this early game DDO puzzle, it says “here’s the puzzle…good luck fucker”.  It won me over.

So in closing you should expect many future posts on my experiences in DDO. For now I am going to try and play the game pure FreeToPlay.  Adding it to your existing Turbine account was as simple matter of calling or tweeting to DDO Support and getting a free activation code for the account.turbine.com page.  I even had a great experience from the DDO support agent too on the phone!  Kudos on having excellent customer service Turbine!  Cheers from the Wavecrest Tavern!

Taking your sweet-ass time to Mordor – Step 1: Stop paying

Slow down.  Enjoy some Lembas. ~ DJ

[dropcap style="font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;"] E [/dropcap]very time I log into Lord of the Rings Online I am impressed at how many of my Kinship mates are all at end game.  Typically most people want to blast through the content and areas and get to the end game content, which might be very good, but I won’t know for quite some time. You see, I enjoy the slow grind. I enjoy getting lost in the Lone Lands sight seeing while battling off orcs that are strong enough to overwhelm me.  In all my gaming I have gotten to the point where I love a good challenge and if I am overpowering an area/level/boss fight I am bored. My days of popping in a Game Genie and setting myself in God-Mode are less and less.  Even simple things like grinding out a slayer deed can provide hours of entertainment if you are in the right mindset. It’s all about using your imagination and enjoying the distraction from real life, where you can’t run around killing 180 warg.  Well you could I suppose but they would come take your weapons away and give you a hunting fine.

[one_third]Reader: DJ, do you ever want to actually make it to Mordor?

DJ: “Eventually[/one_third][two_third_last]So I am making a multi part blog series on how to take your sweet time getting to Mordor. I was a long time fan of Casual Stroll to Mordor because of their underlying declaration that they are casual players of the game.  Now, listening to their podcast made me realize that they were a lot more hardcore than I am at Lotro, which made me laugh when I tried to compare how casual’er I am.  Its like I am the Nintendo Wii to their PS4 when I compare the two.  Still, their podcast and site is a fantastic guide for everything and should be thoroughly explored.[/two_third_last]

Step 1:  Become a cheap ass and stop paying

No really. If you want to play Lotro for years and years, don’t pay for it monthly.  This goes without saying for any game mind you.  I love Turbine to death and support their games, but paying VIP for an entire year taught me an important self realization: I hate paying monthly fees.  So sit down and really do some math and figure out for yourself if it is easier to just pay for the content you want to play outright vs playing as a VIP.

Lets break this down shall we:

Assumptions: You are like me, want to take your time, play all quests, do little to no raiding, are open to role play, and LOVE grinding and exploring!

[one_half] 3 years of VIP[/one_half][one_half_last] 3 years of Premiumish[/one_half_last]

[one_half]Description: Pretty simple: you buy 3 years of premium VIP. You get everything including the kitchen sink as well as VIP perks like a flashy character portrait border I think. [/one_half][one_half_last]Description: Pay for 1 month of VIP to unlock all of the static perks like riding, extra bags, increased purse, quick travel, all trait slots, and all the starting presents PERMANENTLY. Then as sales present themselves purchase stuff like the “All Quest Pack”, “Mithral Edition” if you can find it, Stone of the Tortoise, Steam Triple Pack, RoR etc.[/one_half_last]

[one_half]Pros: You don’t have to think about stuff. You just play the game and keep paying like a sheep.  Baaaaahh![/one_half][one_half_last]Pros: Money.  Its nice to have it.  Plus you get to explain complicated reasonings and mathmatics to justify how you play Lotro.  You can also continue to buy stuff in game with free earned TP if you are a deed grinder like myself![/one_half_last]

[one_half]Cons: You are a faithful servant of the ever watching eye of Turbine and Warner Bros plus out more money over the long haul.  Long term if you choose to stop paying you will lose the ability to backtrack and do tons of questing in some fantastic zones like Evendim, North Downs, Misty Mountians, etc.[/one_half][one_half_last]Cons: Lets be real, you don’t want to pay for this all at once.  Also it gets a tad complicated looking up what you can and can’t do, but I will try to remedy that in this blog(you are welcome). Also if you want to do everything including raiding and such you are going to start making it more expensive!  Remember: slow down and enjoy the Lembas[/one_half_last]

[one_half]Costs: Ok if you pay one full year at a time:

$99/ yr x 3 years = $297 total

If you are a typical gamer and can’t blow that much at once:

$9.99/month for 3 months x 3 years = $359.64 total

If you are suicidal and pay monthly:

$14.99/month x 3 years = $539.64 total GAAHH!
(fuck that noise!)[/one_half]

[one_half_last]Costs: Let me begin with this:

[box type="warning"] ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS BUY SHIT ON SALE[/box]

  • Pay 1 month of VIP: $14.99
  • The Steam Triple Pack (Steam sale) 50% off at $19.99
  • Riders of Rohan (Steam Sale) 50% off $9.99
  • Helms Deep (Steam Sale) 50% off $19.99
  • In game:Stone of the Tortoise – (Wait for 25% off sale) 371 TP or USE your first 500 free TP from VIP duh…  $FREE!!!
  • The motherload “All Quest Pack” – $79.99 – adds all extra zones which are FANTASTIC!  Don’t skip them!

Total cost: $144.95[/one_half_last]

DJ_Lotro_Tortoise As you can see the cost savings is incredible when you wait and shop for these items on sale.  Steam offers most of this stuff 50% off multiple times a year. I HIGHLY suggest you start as the VIP and add the items in your Steam wish list. When the sale starts you will get an email telling you that something in your Steam wish list is on sale.  Note: The Steam store sells you the expansion packs and just simply gives you the code which you must apply over at your Turbine account page to be valid in game.

In the next few posts I will continue to expand upon how one uses this mythical Stone of the Tortoise to take your sweet-ass time getting to Mordor!   Stay tuned.
