    Can't update LOTRO

    Sometimes the launcher hangs at '44% Check Product.' sometimes it crashes after downloading file #2 'TurbineInvoker.exe'.

    I've spent a little over an hour playing with firewall settings --...

    A valid point. I was looking more at the 'realism' of involuntary and impulsive reactions, but you certainly eloquently explained the viewpoint I was questioning.

    Many (if not most) raids are done at level-cap. Few are doing them for XP. They're doing them to get something they want. It seems there is a portion (large or small) of the player-base who would...

    I guess I think of role-playing in a MMO as more improvisational than scripted. You react to the other players and the game environment, you don't plan for a kinnie to drop a spider on your head. ...

    Re: Ettenmoors: POPULATION CAP

    As far as I can tell this is (and will continue to be) a non-issue. I'm certain that won't prevent people from complaining about it, though.

    Re: Breaking the Love fest

    You can also use An to kill Rockwithers (MP side).

    If you do it just right, you can get them both to almost kill each other and then finish them both off. . . one of my favorite pastimes when I'm...

    Re: Your Tanking Build?

    Case 1: I do not believe this to be true. If group one's Guardian is at the top of the threat list and group two's hunter is 2nd on the threat list, healing the hunter should generate aggro. AFAIK,...

    Re: Multiboxing, is it ruining the moors?

    Whether you have six accounts or one, I still hate you all.

    Why must everything PvMP related be either crying, fear-mongering, or gloating? Play or log (or quit). Win or lose. Live or Die. I...

    Re: The Wait is finally over: Guardians

    That may very well be the point. Your avoidance rate stays the same while gaining additional Parry procs to chain reactives.

    It isn't that the change is stupid. It is that you're assuming a...

    From my perspective, your Mustang isn't broken. There are Mustang owners who believe it is broken because it can't fly like the Corvette across the street. As a...

    Re: The Wait is finally over: Guardians

    That's a pretty huge IF in there. Not to mention your "8-9% evade in full tank" is a presumption (again) based on itemization that hasn't been revealed.

    Re: The Wait is finally over: Guardians

    I read this as increasing the Guard's Parry while decreasing the Mobs' Evade. I could be completely wrong, however. Clarification would be helpful.

  20. Re: The Icy Crevasse - what is with the difficulty level

    I ran this skirmish solo with little difficulty. There was one issue where I got punted into an optional encounter during a counter-attack and quickly died, but I'm presuming that's a fluke.

    Did you really think Turbine was going to do a major expansion with a 10 level level-cap bump and not make any changes?

    You clearly have a different definition of 'useless' than I do.

    I guess I don't expect a gambit that was part of my rotation at level 8 to be critical to my gameplay at 65. Maybe you do.
