    Challenge/Achievement Thread

    We Lore-masters play a different class than the rest. A stronger one. The class that you can push boundaries and limits with. So here's my suggestion: A thread where you can post your achievements and big victories - and in that way, also help other Lore-masters to achieve the same things by learning from your tactics. You can post videos of your deeds, screenshots, or whatever you like. Also, you can challenge others to do stuff you're struggling with or want to try out, and perhaps in that way learn how to do it. This thread includes both Pve and PvP.

    I'll start off myself by posting my most recent achievement: flipping Lugazag on my own. Enjoy!

    Love the concept, thanks for starting this!

    I have also contemplated flipping a keep as well, but there are always creeps on at all hours on my server, getting it done would be tough.

    I didn't watch your video, but I have to assume it took you an hour to do since they have to all be burnt down in time so that none of the chieftains or tyrant respawn too soon.

    See! This is what it's all about; sharing experiences.

    In my experience, i found that it was easier to survive by putting down gourd and kiting the 2 chieftans and tyrant through it while using waterlore. Yes, eventually both chieftans will die (way before the tyrant), but that gives you a 30-60 seconds breathing space where you only have to focus on downing the tyrant. The tyrant should be around 200-250k ish as the chieftans respawns for the second time - and by then it's all about taking them all 3 down at the same speed. Hope you could use this (:

    I have done TR with the help of Goldie, I was unsure if it was possible to do it without his epic tanking skills, but now I will certainly give it a shot! Thanks for the bit of inspiration, ill post my SS when I get it done

    These videos are awesome! I always thought about it, but never really got around to the Sword-Halls - really good job on the others aswell. I guess with the water-lore change it's time to try the SH challenge

    On a second note, if you don't feel like it, just take a screenshot instead of spending time on an entire video. Anyways, i enjoyed them, and keep it up, keep pushing!

    We have a german thread about LM-experiments ( http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.p...nte-mit-Kundis for those of you who happen to speak german). It's about playing group-content with just LMs. I personally did following with pure LM-groups:

    - Sambrog (cm)
    - Ost Elendil (cm)
    - Glinghant (failed cm)
    - Fornost - Water Wraith (t2 cm)
    - Samath Gul (t2 cm)
    But there's no vids. I'm not doing that in fact.

    Estelrandir has made an Erebor-T1-run on a different server with 2 tanks and 8 LMs. Here's the vid:

    - Samath Gul (t2 cm) WOW. Is that even possible? I mean first boss is immune to fire dmg and then there's the room filling with fire at some point. hmmmmm never been there DPS geared though so i cant say for sure if staff strike/swipe LotRD LS and melee attacks would cut it. I would luv to see a vid of that if u ever get the chance to do it again ^.^. At least the first boss cos rest is pretty much easy.

    Yeah it was a bit of a challenge at first but one of us was playing in full blue as healer so she could take all wounds. All of us stood in melee. That's a big amount of damage alltogether in the end. You may also know that bear-debuffs stack. So with about 4 bears we had at least 20% +dmg in melee. One of us was tank. He got all of the heal and tanked by damage - the only one with a 1st ager back then.

    I personally found Gorothul a bit more difficult until we figured out that 2 or 3 eagles will do the trick with their interrupts. After no longer getting kicked it was pretty easy. You could only do bloody single-target tho. But 6 LMs doing single-target and healing themselves is powerful enough.

    Estelrandir did SG back then on lvl 65 with 6 LMs. He then did it in ranged distance so Gorothul never did any melee-damage which is a pretty good way to work yourself thorugh the encounter as well I guess.

    Sorry for not being able to offer a vid. I might do so if I get an LM into my group who would actually take that effort. I myself just don't have the time.

    In the meantime I give you this lousy old vid of grand stairs with hunter and LM. It was made back on lvl 60 so quite a big deal back then. It's easily soloable for an LM these days tho... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78RE9dyCOs8

    I'm definitely trying SH tomorrow.

    I want to know though, if you don't mind sharing, how much tactical mastery did you have in that setup? And what gear were you using?

    I think I might try that with my + water lore pulses Hytbold set and 2erebor.
    And then, forever remains that change from G to E minor.

    I thought i was using 3 AF set for +WL but i figured while fighting 1st boss that i didn't so i changed midway The only tricky stuff is the morroval that spams bats. Save your gourds for that time and kite them bats into it and ull be fine. I Must have had 30k tact mastery on that gear.

    Sidenote: Now its more or less a 5minutes job to solo SH using eagle pet for interrupts on heals of 2nd boss(cant bother using BF ). I rather go in there with just 8k morale with Hope and 40k tact mastery. Much faster and more fun.

    I did it earlier today. I took a 10k morale build with something like 35k tactical mastery. I used 4 AF Hytbold and the gold helm.



    Was surprisingly easy. I might do it with my glass cannon build later, just to see if it can be done.

    Not a solo escapade, but I did just participate in a successful Iorbar's Peak T2c run last night that consisted of 3 Lore-masters. Pretty fun! (I also duo-ed IP T2c once with my LM and my daughter on her Champion)

    Decided to solo turtle, after a while I found out a working strategy. Forgot to make a screeny right after beating him, so I went back in XD. The bear died when turtle was at around 80k, wanted to grab aggro back earlier but I used inner flame a bit too long.

    Nice one. I take it you enjoyed a nice turtle soup meal with ur Bear afterwards?
