The shiny of Rohan is not wearing off. I am dismayed by the price of color packs for our war-steeds (see Cosmetic Lotro’s excellent post here for more details), and uninspired by the barter armour pieces offered for our 8 gabillion tokens. As a cosmetics blogger, that makes things sort of rough.
That said…omg, I love mounted combat and racing over the plains and the music and the epic and and and… *breathes into paper bag* The landscapes are stunning. The sound effect of the wind moving across the grasses is just fantastic. The sky! Have you looked up at the sky?
I do have a couple of questions that maybe my readership is puzzling over as well. Or, you’ll know the answers and look at me funny, either way. First, has anyone seen a mechanic outside questing (at this time) to raise the various Rohan reputations? I haven’t. That said, has anyone seen any reputation reward vendors? I haven’t. Perhaps that’s coming into the game later; I’m just curious (and still only 80, so there you go).
I am still putting together cosmetics ideas — things are pretty limited right now, and after trying three pairs of low shoes and still having clipping issues with the Tactical Eastemnet Campaign Robe, I am going back to destroying things on horseback and listening to cinematic music.
