    Guide to the Eyes & Guard Tavern

    Important Notes about The Eyes and Guard Tavern

    Please note the Tavern has not been updated for Beornings. There will be a lot of services (such as Racial Traits, Class Items, Weapons, etc) that will not be available to this class. Auto-leveling is also not available for Beornings.

    Players are encouraged to read the following thread if they are unfamiliar with the Tavern:

    The Eyes & Guard Tavern FAQ

    Auto-leveled (Created) Characters

    Created Characters must speak to Kehleyr and complete the Introduction via her quest in order to gain access to the other Level-up NPCs in the Tavern. If you complete the Introduction via any other method you will not be able to use the level-up services in the Tavern.

    Copied Characters

    Level-up services in the Tavern are not available to you. This includes Deeds and Reputation. This is intended, and admins will not assist copies. Please do not harass admins to affect copied characters.

    The entire point of a copy is to bring them into the world as they would be if we posted the build to Live. To allow manipulation by the NPCs would defeat this purpose.

    If you wish to test higher level content, you will need to create a character if your copy does not meet your needs.

    All characters have access to the tavern as soon as they have completed the short starter quest specific to their race. (If you Skip Tutorial at character creation the doors are available immediately). The doors are much easier to locate if you have your floaty names for 'Items' on.

    • In Archet (for hobbits and Race of Man) the tavern is located across the courtyard from Amdir (Jon Brackenbrook in burned down Archet)
    • In Thorin's Gate (for Elves and dwarves) the tavern is located around the corner to the west from Frerin's Court

    Day-Glo Effect in E&G

    Have mentioned this before and still it is a problem

    It only happens in the Crafting Hall of the E&G

    I run LOTRO in 4K res, and Ultra High Settings. The game is beautiful, even more so than when I ran it on 1080p

    Yet EVERY time I enter the craft hall I have to drop my settings down to High or (most times) Medium, because of the dreaded Day-Glo Green graphics

    At one time you could just run out and run back in to fix it.
    But that doesn't appear to work anymore

    Not sure I want them to even think twice about an area that only appears on the test server. Focus on issues in Live, and only live.

    MAWorking had the highest post count on the pre-beta LOTRO forums. He was truly an icon and clearly, hasn't changed a bit. -Meghan/aka Patience

    This day-glo effect has happened on Live a cpl of years back. It got sorted

    And as it happens I have found another solution, sort of

    As I was running on 4k Ultra-high, I decided to look into the "Advanced Graphics" a bit deeper

    That's when I noticed

    Refresh Rate = Auto

    Changed it to 30Hz and voila

    No more Day-glo, and still running at 4k Ultra
