Goldenstar said that she did some stuff in Bree-town won a second-ager in the Lottery and then called Merric a turd on the air. Enjoy that little spat or feel free to skip it.

After a 150+ day absence from the game I have decided to re-install LOTRO. I have let my VIP subscription end and was wondering if you had any blog posts that detail what I will still have access to (characters, skirmishes, loot bags, etc)? If I resubscribe will it be like I never left (other than having to pay the lockout fee on my house)? Any information you have on this would be helpful.

Hi Goldenstar and Merric. I haven’t been able to come to the live recording for a long time now (naughty time zones), but i still listen to the podcast every monday on my way to work, keep up the good job o/
I am writing for two reasons. First, i wanted to share some personal experience about PvMP. I created a spider at least 4 years ago, and i let her nearly untouched for a very very long time. Each and everytime i played her, i felt so weak and crunchy, it wasn’t really fun, and i got discouraged. One can only be smashed to a puddle a goo by any player so many times before calling quit^
But with the weaver revamp in update 6, i rediscovered the class, and it’s becoming more and more fun. I started slow, doing some daily quests now and then, sometimes just an hour at night, after my loremaster time. And she started to gain ranks, new skills, and now she’s nearly rank 5, and it’s a ton of fun. I am not really a PvP player, but now i’m even starting to enjoy doing some real PvP, not only the PVE quests, and i feel like i’m starting to be useful.
So my advice is: if you tried PvP and got frustrated, don’t be afraid to try it again, maybe with some friends. Low-level monsters are really really weak, but the first ranks come fairly easily, and gaining a rank as a monster is not like gaining a level as a free player. The difference in power is way more tangible, and PvP can be a really nice experience, a break from the regular game. Plus, the weavers are just so cute, especially with anniversary outfit

First of all, I like a lot your blog ! (even if I would prefer you write it in french :p )
I’m contacting you to suggest a review, if you have the feeling for it ^^
I’m developing and maintaining a Lotro skin collection named JRR.
It is composed of freely revisited skins + a few original contents.
There are also a few addons available beside the main download.
Some skins are very close form the original release, as Durin’s folk, some others explore a new perspective, as BGM or Delving Hills.
Some skins were originally only a single toolbar : Smallbar, monsters lair short, or in a lesser way Greenleaves, which was a toolbar+minimap+player vital.
JRR is a true modular pack, where every skin is technically built as an addon, saving hard disk space by sharing as many pictures as possible and offering the end user to choose which skin will be featured ingame or not.
The JRR main download pack contains almost exclusively universal toolbar based skins (except “delving hills small” and “monsters lair small”),
addon files are not universal skins based.
Next release, planned for monday 14, will be compliant with Update 7 new toolbars design.
Here is the JRR main page :
Here is a download link to the upcoming update 7 releases (this pack includes the addons) :
Thanks for having read me till the end ^
and greetings from France !
