    Firefoot - In-game Help for New Players

    Hello Firefoot!

    During Closed Beta I created an In-Game Help List that allowed new beta testers to find veteran beta testers that could answer questions they may have had while playing the game. It worked very well, and many testers found it very useful. At launch I created a new help thread for each server, and I am happy to say that new players are still finding them useful.

    Character names are followed by class, for those of you who may want class specific help. If the character's class is followed by an asterisk, that character is Level 50. New players should add chosen characters to their Friends list in-game, and send a tell to an online character when they have a question.

    VETERAN PLAYERS: Please post here, if you want to help. I do my level best to keep these threads updated, but I have multiple (12) threads to deal with now, so PMing me makes a lot of extra work.


    NEW PLAYERS: Following is a list of veteran players who will be willing to offer advice and answer questions in-game. They are not there to group with you and help you complete quests. They may offer to help you in this way, but that's not why they are listed here, so please don't ask them.

    Forum ID - (Character Names)



    AeonicStorm - (Aranros)

    Armedeus - (Armedeus)

    I'd be open to helping any new players as best as I can when I am on or via PM's here. I'm a Final Fantasy XI vet with about 2 years there. I played WoW for awhile but never connected to the community. LOTRO is my new home and I anticipate it being that way for awhile.

    Re: Firefoot - In-game Help for New Players

    I have been through some LotrO surveys on future content, and was in the Open Beta. I'de love to help people out in any way I can. I am outrageously active on these forums as well as my business's forums, and my Kinship's forums. In-game my character name is Aranros, and I will help in any way I can. Our Kinship forums has a Dungeon Manuel not only on the lvl20+ Great Barrows Dungeon, but of the entire Book 1. This can be used for reference by anyone, Allied Coalition member or not.

    Coalition Forum Link

    I hope I may help in any way to better this server more so then it already is.

    Sincerely,
    Aranros Swiftblade

    I suppose I'll throw my hat into the ring.

    I'm absolutely willing to give someone a hand who's having trouble figuring this quest or that location out, but be warned... I am not a walkthrough FAQ (and I'm certainly not going to tag along and keep anyone alive).

    Though I'll absolutely do my best to assist in any race, class, or profession issues, I can place particular emphesis on Elven racials, Lore Master, and Historian questions.

    I'm sorry Zassy, I really can't answer that question for you. Perhaps someone else will come along who can, or you could start a seperate thread. You might get more responses that way.

    Re: Firefoot - In-game Help for New Players

    Feel free to add me to the list, I'm more then happy to answer any questions. Sometimes I may be a bit cryptic in my answers though, so simply yell at me saying that I'm not making any sense and I'll try to explain it further.

    I'm also a bit of a philosopher as well. So if you want to sit down and talk for hours about why the shadows never move as the sun crosses the sky we can do that as well.

    I'm Daldek in game, a stout dwarf.

    I have been playing alot lately also come from wow. (hate the game anymore)
    but anyway to answer your question. from what i have noticed at least mid lvl...im a 31 hunter(surprise surprise) but healers seem light much like in anyother game...capts seem kinda hard to find at least for me when filling a group.. but mainly i say pick what you'll like try everything out. so many ppl worry about whats needed that they end up working up a class they dont fully enjoy. This games a blast and i'm glad i broke down to get it. I've met so many great ppl grouping and am jus excited about the game thus far. Again i say roll what ya want server class always fluctuate so doesnt really matter i say healers now and in 2 weeks it'll be dps. hope i helped kinda got goin

    A mid-low level Captain (22) at the moment. I would love to help out with anything I can. Although I haven't reached a high level yet, I have been focusing on soaking in the culture of the game, and exploring the lands. In-game name is the same as forum name: Towhead.

    "Ask and ye shall receive"

    Edit: Forgot to mention that although I am newish to this game (didn't play beta, but playing since retail launch), I am a MMO vet including FFXI, EQ, EQ2, SWG, CoH, GW, and limited WoW.

    Assuming you're using Windows, check the My Documents folder. There should be a Lord of the Rings Online folder in there. That's where your screenshots go (as well as your keymappings, should you ever need to reinstall).
