The Casual Stroll to Mordor folks have been running a series of class specific round-tables, the first of which being for the Minstrels. All sorts of good information as they had a good mix of play-styles represented. So if you’re interested in learning about the class or how to better group with Minstrels it is a great listen.
The second of the classes they’ve covered is the Warden and I had a blast as one of the participants on that episode. It hasn’t been released, but as soon as it is I will put up the link. I will admit, in hindsight I might’ve been a tad on the confident (or cocky) side but as a tank I do think you need to have a bit of that mentality. Again we did have a good mix of playstyles like the Minstrel roundtable so that made for some great discussions.
Both of these round-tables have also been broadcast live on the LOTRO Network (just like the LOTRO Reporter) with a chat room so even if you’re not invited to chat you can still chime in and ask questions or provide additional information. Plus the chatrooms usually are pretty fun environments CStM has usually been posting before they record if they’re doing it live and the LOTRO Reporter folks usually record late Wednesday nights for those of us not on the West coast and announce the start via Twitter.
I also wanted to mention the Through the Palantir folks as they just released the long awaited Moors episode. I will admit it is a bit of a long episode, but it is SO worth it. If you have any desire to learn about the Moors or if you’re looking to brush up on it (like me) I highly recommend the episode as they go through the mechanics, landscape, classes, and much more.
And finally there’s another new podcast out there for your listening pleasure. Sparthir from the LOTRO World blog site has posted his first episode which is available from the site and also from iTunes. I really do enjoy having multiple casts as everyone has slightly different takes on the game and covers different topics.
