Update day!

The November update finally hit the EU today. It meant lots of new horses, new vault and crafting panel and new LM skills. I was hoping we were going to get the winter festival but that doesn't start until next week. *pouts*

Last night I completed my last rep faction that I need for the World Renowned Horse (the Algraig..they were a pain to get kindred with). So today I logged on and was immediately awarded with two horses! *cheers.

The Elven meta deed horse:


World Renowned Horse:


The only drawback with them is the flags. I don't mind the flags per say, but they don't seem to move naturally with the horse. I'll more than likely keep using my Galahdrim War Steed, especially now that they updated it's hit points (and rightly so!)

I spent a few G on the Rivendell horse as well :P

I decided not to buy the Mathom horse as I just don't think I'll ever use it as cute as it is. I also saw on Casual Stroll to Mordor that there's a new Malledhrim horse, but I wasn't able to find it.

The new Loremaster skills are pretty cool (Frost Lore, Staff Sweep and in-combat pet summoning). I'm not too thrilled with their animations though, especially Frost Lore. First time I cast it, I was reminded of a fairy casting a spell. It's going to look very funny on human male LMs. :D

I noticed it puts some ice stuff on mobs:

We have a raid tonight so it will be interesting to try out the new debuff. Staff Sweep might be helpful on the LT as when your pet flanks you can use it to regain power. We shall see.

Now bring on the festival!
