re: being noob at PVMP in LOTRO
Over the eons of the game, there's been lots written and discussed and tossed into the salad bowl about this but in the end the dressing is always Blue Cheese.
There's really not much you can do, if you don't know the ropes, know the players and know the strategies (or lack of them) and there's only one way to learn them ... go out until you get it figured out yourself.
All the self-help PVMP guides can do (lotro-wiki and others) is give you a basic "idea" but it's like riding a bicycle, you just gotta get on and pedal yourself.
Along the way, you can expect to be ghanked and targeted and have some rude things said about you all of which you just have to ignore and use what skills you have to survive a teeny bit longer the next time. Once players see that you come out regularly then you will find a slightly more enjoyable experience and there will be groups you can connect up with. But you gotta spend some time being cannon fodder or at the moment, spider food or being sliced and diced by reavers.
As to Freeps being GV camped, yeppers that's true. The best thing is the rez is nearby and you cannot be ghanked on the way back to the bottom of the stairs....
Whoever says “I” creates the “you.” Such is the trap of every conscience. The “I” signifies both solitude and rejection of solitude. Words name things and then replace them. Whoever says tomorrow, denies it. Tomorrow exists only for him who does not seek it. And yesterday? Yesterday is Kolvillàg: a name to forget, a word already forgotten.
