Elf Break!

Drawing my brains out has left me a bit pooped, so tonight after work I punted on art and logged into LotRO for a while to play my mid-level (but growing) elf warden, Faradawn. He'd hit the "Lone Lands/North Downs/everything is a boring grind" blues a while back, but with a combination of skirmishes, tasks, and just plain going where I was interested regardless of how over-level it was, I got him up to 35-36, and so now he's in Evendim, which is a zone I generally enjoy even if it does involve swimming back and forth over that friggin' lake a few times too many. ;)

Supposedly the Isengard expansion this fall will inch the level cap up again by another five levels; I'm not keen on this myself, but I guess it's inevitable. I don't know if Faradawn will be at level cap by that point, but Maedhroc and Galadhalion are ready to go. Galad still has to do the Enedwaith zone at some point, but I'm in no hurry for that. It was a fun (if smallish) zone that suited Maedhroc's story well, but it's kind of irrelevant for Galad.

Of course, I'd still rather we went north (to Lonely Mountain and Gundabad) instead of south, but it IS "Lord of the Rings Online," not "Middle-Earth Generally Online," so I expect it will be some time — if ever — before that comes to pass.
