    Question Can't enter Caras Galadhon to start book 7

    Gday all,

    This is odd, I previously completed Vol. III Book 6 so I'm ready for RoR epic quests.

    And I got the letter from Galadriel inviting me to start book 7 at her place.

    But I cannot enter Caras Galadhon - I get "Using that has no effect" at the door.

    My standing with the Galadhrim is only Acquaintance, I guess that is the problem, apparently Friend is needed to enter.

    But how did I get Book 6 done then?

    I'm confused...
    Any help appreciated - or do I just have to grind Galadhrim rep up to friend?

    Iasion

    You got book 6 done bcos it ported you directly in front of Galadriel when it ended. What you need to do is use a rope that is found outside Caras Galadhon.

    if you're L75, acquaintance to friend would take you half an hour max IMO - pick up a few quests from around the vineyards, vapourise a few L60 lizards and you'll be there in no time.

    someone was saying that there's a rope you can climb up next to the gate, but i thought they might be joking?

    To the left-hand side of the gate at Caras Galadhon there is a rope hanging from a flet, climbing it will take you inside to speak to Galadriel if you dont have the necessary rep.

    The rope IS a joke, right?

    Anyway, the reputation in this area is easy to get. The epic quest line in the area alone will reward you 10k points. You need 30k to enter (I think you need to be friend). Then you turn in the quest which is given by the guard at the front gate and you are in.


    btw, you didn't by any chance click the stable master inside Caras Galadhorn? There are quick travels to Inner Caras Galadhorn from several quest hub locations (21st hall, Rivendell, Galtrev, Stangard?)

    The rope is not a joke. It's a solution for those who don't have the Lothlorien quest pack.

    Somehow that information about a rope has cheapened the whole Lothlorien play we did a few years back. I could have managed to accept a port as in the previous book, but the idea that the inhabitants Caras Galadhon would be so careless as to leave a dangling rope is taking the suspension of beleif a step too far.

    In On Fairy Stories JRRT discusses how a secondary creation must command secondary belief in order to make an immersive, story, someone clearly forgot that.

    They forgot it when they removed the acquaintance standing requirement to enter the wood itself with update 7.

    I believe the rope was added for people who do not own the Lothlorien quest pack. They would still not be able to get the quest "The Paths of Caras Galadhon" (which allows you to pass through the gate) even if they somehow did have enough rep from doing the volume2 epics.

    The rope is not a joke. It is there for players who do not have Lothorien completed or the quest pack there. Epic Quests are open to all players regardless of their quest packs or expansions. The rope is a solution for this quest line.

    If you have access to CG you cannot use the rope. You must enter thru the gates.
    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.

    I've got kindred there and used the rope instead of the gate just to see where it would drop me and it worked fine.

    Hello!

    The little-known thing about the rope is that you need to have completed Volume 3, Book 6 to be able to use it. Think of it as compensation. If you bought the Lorien quest pack and took the time to get the rep, you can jump right in. If you didn't buy the pack, then you're expected to at least participate in the (entirely free) story. Which everyone obviously wants to do anyway, right?

    If you're still confused, you can check out the flow chart I made to clarify this issue: http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.p...-Flow-Chart%29

    So let me get this straight. There is a requirement to Start Vol3 Book7 in a previous way?

    Regardless of if it takes 10 mins or 10 days why is there a requirement-gate to get this epic, while there's none on the rest?

    This is a start of a new expansion. That's insane that the forethought wasn't put into this for people who cannot or do not meet any of the aforementioned requirements to get the quest. Why do we meet in Lorien? Why not somewhere else that IS NOT REP GATED. Come on turbine please fix this. There wasn't a prerequisite to start Moria or Dunland epics, why is there one for Rohan??? To make us Buy stuff? That's so cheap. I'm giving the benefit of the doubt that this is simply a glitch or an oversight and not truly Working As Intended.

    What are you talking about?

    Did you even read anything other than the OP?

    Nothing is rep gated and nothing requires a store purchase.

    Actually, the rope no longer works. I had a low-rep toon I ran through a month or so ago and had to run around doing rep quests so I could get in to do the book.

    Just last week I got a 50s toon there and was also unable to use the rope.

    Not sure if it's a bug or not, but as far as I know it's no longer possible to do V3B6 without getting Friend reputation with Lothlorien.

    The rope only works for characters that have completed v3b6 and have need to access Galadriel to start b7.

    Well, just to get in the Lothlorien region, you need acquaintance so, you know.

    Explain "a few years back". Because that rope has been there as long as I can remember.

    No, you dont. They removed that in update 7 so new players could pass straight into Rohan. It is already mentioned in this thread.

    Some peope in this thread *clearly* have not touched this game in a LONG time, either that or treat Lothlorien like it has the plague and avoid it as much as possible.

    This thread was created in October of 2012 and then necroed in July 2013 and has now been necroed again so that explains the comments.
