The Daily Grind

So it seems I've turned into one of those crazy people who'd like to get kindred with all factions and also complete every deed in the game. Yes, every! (aside from Ettens... and skirmishes too...not sure :P) I'm not quite sure why I ended up wanting to do this. I do have to say it's a difficult thing for me to achieve as I joined the game a few months before Mirkwood and also changed mains. Until the end of the summer last year, I considered my first character, my hunter Erunaneth, to be my main. But loremaster ended up being far too much fun, both solo and in groups. My hunter nearly had kindred with everything, so redoing quite a bit of the rep was rather painful.

I think why I'm doing this is for something to do on my loremaster, plus I think I'll be pretty proud of myself for completing this uber-meta deed. ;) It is a bit sad that this is really all my LM has left to do. She's just lacking two BG pieces and the Durchest caster bracelet (she recently won the Mistress bracelet woot!), but since those depend on raids, it's something that is out of my control. I love playing her and am proud when I finish deeds or rep, but honestly I wish I did have some more fun stuff to do with her. Endless kill deeds is looking a bit depressing.

As of now, my lm has attained kindred with everything but the Eldgang (a side effect of joining the game late!).

At least we have the Rift skirmish now which slowly builds rep (700 points a day). Though I really can't wait for the revamped Rift instance as I've already been doing loads of skirmishes and still have 40 someodd left before I hit kindred. I'm getting quite sick of the skirmish, though thank goodness it's a quick one. Lothirieth crying out of boredom!:

I also found the Inn League and the Ale Association to be a challenge as well. It was possible to do all the delivery quests in an hour but as the Ale Association quests were timed, I couldn't slack off and go afk for a bit. Those plus the dailies took a fair bit of time and I was struggling to make myself do them after a bit. But I knew I had to persist given the quests are only available during festivals. To my surprise I was able to achieve kindred with both factions in one festival and was rewarded with some fun new mounts. Woot for a good goat in Moria! The Inn League horse is also slightly drunk! :P

As far as the zones and instance deeds go, I've only completed Mirkwood and The Tower of Dol Guldur. Enedwaith is nearly done (damn wood trolls!). I had my doubts as to if I'd ever complete the Moria instance deeds but after a few decent runs in some instances, it should be doable. Although my lm hasn't set foot in we'll see how it goes. The Carn Dum and Uru deeds look problematic as well. I really wish I would have had my main sorted and been doing these deeds when they first came out and everyone else was doing them!

Ah well, hopefully I'll get there eventually! :)
