Hey Redfive, did you want those Daedric Thrones for your house? They came back in the mail. If you want them, I'll send.

Sorry, BD I just haven't logged on to accept them.

I'm trying to get the most out of my seasonal Diablo 3 character before the inevitable burn out happens, at which point I'm sure I'll be back to ESO.

I'll try to log in over the next day or two.

With the recent steam sale, I bought a copy of his game for my wife, son and myself. We are all enjoying it, esp. me. I would love to join the OO guild. I messaged Wire in game, but I'm not sure he was the correct person to message. Who can invite me to the guild?

Also, who is still playing this? Would love to add some people to my friends list.

If you don't hear from wire (@rwire), you can also check with me. In game I'm Bdr2017_ESO. I'm on pretty frequently.

I still check in from time to time. @Stuie if you want to add me in game. Also, if you ever need a healer for group stuff just let me know and we can set up a time to play. :D

One of you put aetherial dust in the guild bank - maybe Papa Smurf? If you'd like, I'm in an active trading guild so I could easily sell it for you - it's worth quite a lot - or you can save it. If you want to save it for the future, it might be a good idea to keep it in your bank instead of the guild bank.
Let me know if you want me to sell it for you.

Is it possible you remember playing during a free weekend and never actually purchased it?

Nope I own it. ive deleted and reinstalled multiple times.

I found it on bethsofts webpage. I had to ask for my ID to log in. Its showing active beta but it also shows on another page where I own it and can play all I want. But I cant seem to register it at Steam like I can many games. Would make it so much easier. Its been installing for 1 hour and its at 9%...going to be a while. ill most likely log in..look around...and delete it again. Im in a rut where nothing draws me to play.

It's been through many big changes, but it's still interesting to see this, especially considering all the doom and gloom of the first several pages.

I got tired of waiting and cancelled the install. After over 2 hours it was barely 20% done and I have other stuff to be doing and playing.

I agree. I'm working my way through Mordor in LotRO with my wife right now, but once we're done, look forward to doing Morrowind.

Ale how is LotRO now days in its free form? I was a beta tester then played almost a year of pay to play then left. I returned when it went free but it seemed very restrictive on free players and got no fun out of it. Not sure if it was that bad or I thought it was based on having it all open to me as a pay to play player before that.

EDIT: Would I be a 'premium' player since I paid for the game and used to sub?

I'm playing as VIP, so I can't say for sure. I know you have to buy quest packs for regions. Supposedly you can do the Epic quests (the main storyline) all the way up to the fall of Sauron for free, just not any side quests unless you buy the packs. That would bring you up to the latest expansion, Mordor, which you'd have to purchase to continue. You can purchase quest packs with currency you can earn in game, and they usually have discounted bundle sales.

As far as the game itself, it's still mostly engaging and enjoyable. There were some stretches where they seemed to just be going through the motions, but WB is out as the publisher, and things are improving.

The game has got even better looking, but suffers from some hitching and lag.

Yeah, after the Morrowind expansion I started having performance issues. It was nice and smooth for me previous to that. It also takes forever to load and the player models are black for quite a while before the textures suddenly pop in. It never did that before the expansion.

Might be fun then because I didn't play it as a power player to get through it. I enjoyed fishing all day or playing music back when it was brand new.
