This week the Dums made it to Galtrev. I never noticed before how Galtrev is just full of busy work. They’re like “Oh a new person, lets give them all the jobs we don’t wanna do!”
I’m carrying heavy boxes around town, searching for missing nails, taking wood and widdling it into spears, and searching crates from Isengard. As Hoppy had put it “Clearly this is Heroes work”.
Not that I don’t mind helping but they have plenty of people hanging around doing nothing. I got Middle-earth to save and running around as delivery Hobbit doesn’t feel very heroic.
Later we decided to try an instance. Sodum queued us up and we got Bells of Dale tier 2. We learned a very important lesson. We are not ready for tier 2. I remember us thinking tier 1 was pretty straightforward and simple. Bumping it up for a challenge seemed logical. It was a challenge alright. We couldn’t make it past the first boss and gave up.
Dumidum had reached level 71 so we decided to go start the quest for his war-steed instead. I got my first taste of war-steed riding as a burglar. I’m only level 73 so I have maybe 4 buttons at this time but it felt very different from my minstrel and it’s going to take some practice. Any tips and tricks you all have for that would be helpful! Do I really need to stay so close?
We did kill the war-band Cinder as a group and completed our first war-band quest. Whee!
