Sally Forth in LOTRO – Episode 11


This episode is a little different in that I primarily just cover the news and my takes on the Echoes of the Dead update.  I should be back on a normal schedule and will get back to my normal news and topic format.  Feel free to let me know if you have any thoughts or suggestions for a topic.

Also, during this episode I do reference my interview with Aaron “Rowan” Campbell, so if you haven’t listened to that I suggest you take a listen as I do have a bit of a different take from others.

    nice podcast again, and i agree with most of the points you made.

    in particular, i agree that OD is a total blast, and that i’ll have the medallions for the pieces i need before i have the armour coin. my raiding group has taken the decision to farm it on T1 for now – and even so, getting 6 bosses a week cleared (actually, usually 10-12 bosses, once you count all the alt-raids) i’ve got 1 piece on 2 different alts.

    medallion counts LOOK huge because the number is so much higher than previous medallion counts, but when push comes to shove, it’s no different from BG or DN (or even Watcher, back in the day): you have to win the roll to get the piece, and you’ll clear far more raids than you’ll win raid armour piece rolls.

    someone on the US forums pointed out that running Rift back at 50 took even longer to get the set, and i think that’s a necessary correction to mis-remembered history: its *only* the 120 mirkwood and 150 hele/ annu rad pieces that have been trivial to get; the rest took a lot of time and raiding effort. so does the OD set.

    i’m also disappointed but not surprised that the Anniversary Raid got set back – such is life; we’ll be running OD for a long time anyway (it really is a FUN raid, in all the ways that BG never was, and even DN wasn’t).

    finally: i’ve now got an Android-based smartphone. any chance then of an Android-app of your podcast, or can you get a place on the CSTM android app? would be great to be able to listen to this on my way to work :)

    Thanks for the feedback, and I’m glad my thoughts are totally off base :) And totally agree that the hele/annuminas sets have spoiled folks as the DN/BG/Rift sets will take just as long to get as the new OD sets.

    As for the andoid ap, I’ll admit I have no clue how to even set something up. I’ll look into it, but is there a way you can subscribe to just the podcast RSS feed on the device? I have a blackberry, so I’m pretty much last to get any sort of app :)
