My New Favorite Place In LOTRO

September 23, 2010

After all this time in Lord of the Rings Online I thought Rivendell was the pinnacle of beauty, but it seems those damn elves had been holding out on me.

After gaining the reputation required, I finally discovered what was behind that mysterious door beside the waterfall. Before I made it to Imlad Gelair I had to make my way through the long dark caverns…for dramatic effect, I suppose. Hey, it worked. You elves are awesome, I get it.

Ever since getting this new PC, I’ve also been unable to play this game without feeling the urge to take a screenshot like every five steps I take. The habit’s gotten quite out of hand, to the point where I’m embarrassed to admit how many times I’ve actually fallen off cliffs and bridges because I was too busy pushing the “Prnt Scrn” button to notice where I’m going. The less said about how many times I’ve been beaten to a pulp and killed by mobs because I was too busy taking pictures, the better.

For all the mishaps, at least I was able to come away with some great shots. For all that trouble, I might as well share a few of my favorites.

I think one of the most wonderful thing about LOTRO is the sky. Kind of a stupid comment, I know, but I can probably stand there like an idiot and stare at it for hours. I mean, it looks like it goes on foreeeever. And that cloud looks like a fine mushroom pie!

The trees in this area around the river Bruinen in the Trollshaws always reminds me of a Monet painting.

All that swimming is a pain in Evendim, but at least it gives me plenty of time to take pretty pictures.
