    Dadi, you seem the go-to-guy about guides. I'm looking for a guide about gameplay in general, and small but very handy tips. I know there is somewhere a thread about it here on the forums but i can't find it. What i mean are tips like Alt+f10 activates torch, or attacking from behind increases your damage, that kinda stuff. Do you have something like that? or a reference where that stuff is written?

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    A big thanks for these guides, they make a lot more sense than anything else I have read.

    Ré essences, is it worth keeping low level armour and replacing the essences as you level up?? Until now I have sold off some low level stuff, and currently have a level 72 that is lagging behind my mostly 80+ armour (level 76 Hunter). Your guide on the subject seems to talk only about 100+ gear.

    The guide suggestion mentioned above would be fantastic, I suspected shooting people in the back improved the damage, but having it confirmed is a big help, Bards Arrow and the best shot I manage a few seconds later!!

    These sorts of things are not all in one place that I know of. I do have much of it on my kin website, perhaps I can consolidate it in to a guide for Dadi's LOTRO Guides. I am camping until after Aug 5, so it will definitely not be started before then.

    There is no question that positional damage exists in game; in fact, some skills even get extra bonuses when attacking from behind (i.e. burglar).

    As for essences, it really does not make a lot of sense to gear yourself pre-100 with essences because leveling from "x" to 105 is so quick that you outgrow the gear at too quick a pace. Most of the quest stuff and random drops are better anyway. At 100 you can begin gearing your essences and then swap them out when you hit 105.

    OK, thanks. I was worried I have been throwing away stuff that I could keep upgrading for many levels.

    Currently I have the item loaded with various L3 tactical essences, as I am otherwise weak in those areas; but as soon as I get something higher level that can replace those, I will ditch it.

    There do seem to be gaps in the grind, it took ages to get through lvl 75, then lvl 76 took a few hours!! I had this a while back in the 60's; grind and grind for weeks to get through a few levels, then the next 5 or 6 came faster than I could see them!!

    As for attacking from behind, it seems to work a LOT, I have been charging up behind various monsters on my warsteed and inflicting 50-70% damage with the first blow on some of them, and demounted several on the first strike (10-16K mounted Orcs).

    Camping, I see the Rain God loves you; it is the same with me, I can book a week off in the middle of a drought, and THAT will be the week the monsoon/hurricane hits!!

    Had a plague of snails last time, crunch, crunch, crunch, to the toilet block and back; you couldnt take a step without killing a dozen of them.
