Have any of you played Dungeons and Dragons online? It's really fun, and it' s made by Turbine, just like Lotro. In some ways, they're really alike, but they are very different in others.

I would recommend it to all of you, even if you don't have a clue about what Dungeons and Dragons is Very Happy

Also, on a side note, if any of you decide to play, I'm on the Argonnessen server Smile

Well, I'm really enjoying its somewhat different format, but I hate that your health doesn't increase unless you're in a town.

I think it's a little funny that I'm a level two rank two, and that's the equivalent of level seven in lotro.

Also, the intro quests are really fun (that's about all I've gotten to)
If you remember your character name, gel, we could quest or something.

Anyway:
My characters are
Licet Nightingale (paladin)
Reqquiem Nightshade (rogue)

It's really cool to pick alignments, because you can't do that in lotro. For those of you who aren't familiar with Dungeons and Dragons, alignments are kind of like personalities. They go like this

Lawful good Neutral good Chaotic good

Lawful Neutral True Neutral Chaotic Neutral

Lawful Evil Neutral Evil Chaotic Evil


And the characters are very customizable. There are a lot more instances than lotro, too, which is fun.

I have added both your chars to my friends list.
My character on that server is a lvl 5 paladin Named Shurtagal Dragonsbane.
It has been ages since i have played him though. My best char is a cleric on the Ghallanda server. and i have nvr figured out the crafting in D&D. I did the intro quests for it buy nvr got any farther.

Eva, I played DDO for about 3 years before lotro Very Happy I played on a few different servers though not on Argo. I liked DDO a lot too, for several reasons:

--Character skill customization is 100x what we can do in LotRO. You can develop many different ways to build a character within a single class, or you can multi-class with even more possibilities.

--The physical combat is more like RL fighting, with bonuses for flanking, sneak attack, positioning, and the rules around armor class and to-hit bonuses are much clearer. Spell casting is also very clear, and very much in the traditional D&D model of spell casting.

As a result you can take down some pretty big mobs with skillful combat technique or spell casting, even if they are much stronger. Or you can get very quickly get your head removed Wink I liked the fact that combat was sometimes more than standing in one place and clicking skill buttons, you pay attention to more tactical factors in a difficult fight.

I eventually left some very good friends in DDO though to play LotRO because of a basic difference in the games that fits my lifestyle better.

There are not very many PvE environments in DDO, at least when I played, and for most of them there are one-time achievements that you can earn there. So most of the game play is in quests. The time required in quests is often long as you level up, so entering a quest with a pug or guildmates is often a 2+ hour time commitment. And there is a culture of doing quests at or near level in DDO (because there is no xp if you don't) so at higher levels if one member of a group drops it often makes it much more difficult for the remaining team.

The dedicated time commitment is the part that is tough for me. When my job suddenly got super busy for 18 months I couldn't commit to long quests any more. Now I often play for that long in lotro, but my play is sometimes interrupted with children waking up, work, or sudden onsets of sleep Smile
Other reasons have kept me in lotro too: the immersive Tolkien environment, the huge expanse of Middle Earth to explore at my leisure.
The thing that most keeps me here though is the other players Smile Being in a good kinship is key, for me, because being with other players really makes the game come alive for me, and introduces me to some very interesting elves!

Anyway, I agree that it's a fun game, and it's interesting to see the differences from lotro. I only play occasionally now with my sons, but if I do again I'll roll a character on Argonesson Wink
