    Re: Captain Resources

    We had kicked around how to organize our resources in a thread several months ago, and the proposal was to have 1 master sticky...and that is exactly what you've done

    Below is a complete list of guides and useful threads, including the ones in Clover's post above, as well as other notable threads. As long as I draw LOTRO breath, I will take the time to maintain this list.

    EDIT: I'm no longer playing LOTRO. As such, I am no longer maintaining the list below.

    Re: Captain Resources

    The thing I don't like about this is I cannot tell, at a glance, if one of the threads in this list has been udpated. Now I have to go look at each one.

    Not a bad idea, just not automated enough...why not just make the sticky section collapsible? It's a Web 2.0 world folks

    AFAIK, there is no bbcode for listing a thread's last updated date. If you know of a way to do it, I'm all ears

    Re: Captain Resources

    Just posting to announce that I just updated my HOT Healer's guide with new items and such. Alot of the items either aren't in the lorebook, or I was too lazy to locate them, so some of them still don't have links attached. Oh, and overall I tidied it up and replaced the "tactical crit modifier" things with "tactical crit damage."

    Re: Captain Resources

    Due to the Forum Pruning, we lost lots of those threads....

    hah, this was JUST updated.

    Re: Captain Resources

    So I just hit 50 on my Captain, looking for resources...forum pruning? There has to be more info out there than this, right? LOL like maybe something even MoM related? The DPS build is designed for level 45-50 looks like.

    Anyway, anyone has any good guides/lists/threads to post that are more about the climb from 50 to 60 (or at least include it), please do.

    I, too, would love to see some updated sources. The Captain Community has been rather quiet lately!

    Re: Captain Resources

    I'd love to see an update on the different builds. I'm trying to get myself to a point where I can fill whatever role is needed in a fellowship (particularly for the 3-man instances)
