Quick Tip: Oathbreakers + Fellowship Maneuver

We had a group running Hall of Crafting last night, and came across a fantastic combination of skills to kill bosses fast.  This particular combo requires a Captain and a Burglar.

  1. Burglar sneaks up on a boss and starts a Fellowship Maneuver (FM, also called Conjunctions – CJ).
  2. At the same time, the Captain uses Oathbreakers Shame.
  3. Everyone contributes Yellow to the FM.

Oathbreakers Shame increases the incoming damage on the boss by 35%. An all-yellow FM puts a nice big Damage over Time effect on the boss.  Combined, they are devestating. The boss just melts.  It’s a fantastic thing to see.

Of course, this only works on bosses that are not immune to FMs. ;)

Using Skins

A quick guide for anyone who wants to use skins to tweak their LoTRO user interface.

This is not a guide about creating skins, just about using skins other folks have generously made available.

Guides for Carn Dum and Urugarth

I’ve added a page of general information about Carn Dum and Urugarth, covering some of the things that I get a lot of questions about.  While I intend to create proper walk-through type guides for these instances, I thought a overview would be a good place to start.

If you have questions or suggestions, drop me a line and we’ll see what we can do ;o)

Reinstalling or Moving LOTRO (without re-downloading or patching)

Over the weekend I had to replace my main system drive (7 years of reliable service, RIP old buddy).

I followed a hunch and found a way to get LoTRO up and running on a fresh OS install without having to re-download or re-patch.

This will also work if you want to move your LOTRO install to a different path/drive.
