1st Age Legendary Items for level 85: Update 10 brought symbols for crafting 1st Age LIs for level 85. The symbols drop in Erebor Raids at level 85. When U10 released (03/06), the symbols would drop in T1 Erebor Raids. Turbine, deciding that was no good, pulled the plug on 1st agers in T1 for update U10.02 (03/20) and now they only drop in T2 Raids. While I gave it a shot, I was 0 for 44 T1 raid wins on receiving 1st Age symbols during the 2-week period. Sigh, rotten luck.
There are 3 ways to get 1st Age LIs:
- Random rare drop in T2 Erebor raids (and T2 challenge),
- Barter for it with Seals at the Skirmish vendor named “Legendary Items”,
- Buy it from the AH since it is not bound. Right now, they are occasionally listed on Arkenstone at ≈ 1000g, yowsa.
Occasionally, I am able to have time to Raid and my kinship gathers for a Raid once or twice a week, so Random rare drop is not out of the question… I’m just not holding my breath hoping for a lucky roll in a T2 raid win. I’m actually very thankful that we are allowed to barter such an item. In olden days, random luck was often the only option to get nice things. I consider the barter option a huge step forward for the game.
There are 3 different Barter prices at the skirmish vendor for a 1st Age symbol:
- Win on all three T1 Erebor Raids (Defense of Erebor T1 deed), then barter for 488 Seals.
- Win on all three T2 Erebor Raids (Defense of Erebor T2 deed), then barter for 427 Seals.
- With on all three T2 Challenges (Defense of Erebor Challenge), then barter for 366 Seals.
Here is what my “The Road to Erebor” deed looks like right now. It is worth a horse to complete the Meta-deed… so, it is on my list. Granted, it is on my “long-term” list, kinda like Tower of Orthanc and Dol Guldur level 85 T2 Challenge, both of which have horses that I need to acquire. Someday… someday…
Eswe’s new healing rings.
In the previous post for Update 10.1, I mentioned that Eswe had a couple of new Healer Rings (u10-rohan-rings-complete-hytbold-in-15) so I wanted to show what they look like for comparison. Clearly, one is for Minstrels and RKs and the other one is for Captains. The RK ring takes the same Sage upgrade path explained in the post on Rohan Rings.
I really am excited when people tell me that they are fans of the site! I hope I come across politely. Sometimes I am carrying on up to a dozen conversations at once so hopefully I say thank you and am cordial if we meet. :D
Here are two people I met this week:
Parnassica is leader of her kin and had kind words to say about the site. Thank you! Forgive me that I am not the best at taking pictures of hobbits… I often just get the tops of hobbit heads.
Arkandon was playing the part of “bird in a tree” when I flew out to Ost Guruth. I am amazed that people figure out how to climb up trees and on buildings. I am sure he will do great at “Ridge Racer” in Eregion when he gets there. ;)
Goldenstar and Merric talked about danania.net on a recent podcast (CSTM: episode190) and Tomrica transcribed it for me. It is quite the great situation when the lead in is that I am fans of my fans. Really though, I am of all my fans, just not all of them run a Mecca-site like CSTM, lol! Tsk, tsk… I’m going to have to remind Goldenstar what my name is… mebbe I will put it in my blog title and website name… oh wait… :D
Here is the transcription from that section of the podcast:
(in reference to the new store horse, steed-of-dagorlad and CSTM: steed-of-dagorlad-available-through-april)
G = Goldenstar & M = Merric
G: If she didn't tell me it was the sea blue color, I would have been like, oh ok... where's the color? Oh and I should say that the color screenshots I got from Danica. She is a blogger who sent me it.. and you can find it at... oh wait, it's not Danica...
M: It's Dan-an-eee-ah... it's the Super-Girl of Lorien.
G: It's the Super-Girl! I always just call her Super-Girl! D-a-n-a-n-i-a.net is her blog. So she was nice enough to send me screenshots of what it looks like dyed.
M: Yea... she's a biiiiiiig horse fan. She's awesome.
G: Yea... yup.
M: She's a great blogger, if you are not following her, you need to follow her.
G: She's super nice, she was like, "Do you need a picture? Here you go..."
M: Yea.. if you are not following her, you need to - it's at D-a-n-a-n-i-a.net
My Note: I don’t know how to write in phonetics, but it is… Daaah-naaah-nEE-aaaah :)
