My Mini-Mes (November 2018)

I saw Tyler from Superior Realities's posts about his stable of characters (impressive!) and decided I'd do the same or something similar. After searching through my own blog, I found that I last did that in August 2015. I am going to focus on my most played characters instead of showing my whole stable, as … Continue reading My Mini-Mes (November 2018)

GW2 New Lion's Arch

New Lion’s Arch

Can you believe that after all the screenshot galleries I've made for Lion's Arch in its various stages, I have never made one of the rebuild town? You can see the original Lion's Arch in this post (from April 2012). About two years later, in February 2014, I made a second gallery because I felt … Continue reading New Lion’s Arch

LotRO and their legendary servers

Thursday evening, Standing Stone Games opened the first of their legendary servers, Anor. The waiting queue reached 4000, apparently. But despite SSG saying it was just a display issue and queues were working correctly, they weren't (and still weren't yesterday). Bookahnerk, who was the last (!) to queue from the four of us (we're playing … Continue reading LotRO and their legendary servers

Lake Doric in Kryta

I admit, it does feel a bit like cheating when I'm filling my picture-count for IntPiPoMo with a blog post like this. But when I thought about what kind of blog posts I could do with pictures (other than the regular ones as I always include at least one picture with each blog post), this … Continue reading Lake Doric in Kryta

I hate Mines of Moria (IntPiPoMo 1)

...With a passion! I am not a big fan of vertical maps in MMOs to begin with, but if in addition to the design, the map itself is also rather useless, my frustration is doubled. But that's not enough for most of the regions of Mines of Moria. Additionally, you can't exactly see if there … Continue reading I hate Mines of Moria (IntPiPoMo 1)

Participating in IntPiPoMo 2018

Some of you may know that years ago, I used to participate in NaNoWriMo. I even won two times in a row and missed the goal by 4k words in another year. Not because I wasn't up to it, but because I'd gotten a high fever the last day and despite trying to type on … Continue reading Participating in IntPiPoMo 2018

Returning to LotRO

I did say I'm giving Elder Scrolls Online another try, didn't I? But when I was looking for an alternative to Rift, I also remembered LotRO - well, that, plus they announced the Legendary server. I have a lifetime account, so returning is quite easy for me. You get shop currency once a month with … Continue reading Returning to LotRO

Elder Scrolls Online Dragonknight

Looking for a new MMO-home

We still have not heard anything from gamigo and their plans with the games they acquired from Trion. Of course, all of this doesn't necessarily mean that Rift will be closed or that much will be changed for Rift as it is now. But I'm still not feeling too confident and decided to look for … Continue reading Looking for a new MMO-home

Paeroka’s Ponderings: Goodbye, Rift?

As some of you know, I love Trion Worlds and the games they have created - well, most of them, at least. I have not always agreed with their decisions, but I don't expect to do so. They are in it to earn money, after all (employees want that to afford a roof above their … Continue reading Paeroka’s Ponderings: Goodbye, Rift?

Rift_Meffanda rogue level 50

Finally level 50 again

I've finally made it to level 50 on Rift Prime. That is after the expansion launched which raises the maximum level to 60. And it was mostly because I made the last two levels by doing quests in the two new starter regions of the expansions. I would say that it took me so long … Continue reading Finally level 50 again
