Questions from a returning player in Help and Advice Posted April 24, 2009 Hello all, After a break for over 2 years, I decided to come back a bit to RS. :) I left this game over 2.5 years ago, because I was bored by the grind really. I played Lord of the Rings Online for over 2 years with a lot of fun, and quite hardcore, I must say. However, one week ago, I melted the motherboard of my laptop of overheating. As I dont have money for repairing it at the moment, Im stuck with an old pc for my study. But I was really bored, and looked back at RS, and saw there were quite a lot of new quests I can do. Because really, the quests in RS are the best ever seen. So now you know that, Ive got some questions about the new things/things I forgot ;) -Is it possible to turn the chat filter off? I know its good for younger people, but Im an adult, dont mind the swearing, and already annoyed by it filtering non-swearing words. -I found myself with this in my bank/inventory. Equipped I have whip+2pieces of guthan IIRC+that helm with wings. How much is this worth, as I have no idea. Not only, howmuch is it worth in gold, but how much is gold worth? I have 1.2m, is that a lot/normal/less? Ive got no clue at all. -I had a santa hat a long time ago, but sold it. Was that wise? I read some stuff I dont remember good anymore about rares that got out of the market by trading with NPC's? -What are other good items I should get for armour/weapons? I have 74 melee stats, 72 magic, 67 ranged, and dont plan on a lot of grinding to lvl it. Any nice gear for my lvl? -Any other stuff that is recommanded to do? Im kinda overwhelmed as I have no idea really. Except for quests. -Does the specific world system work well? So when I wanna play CW, I can easily log to the world that is assigned and find a lot of people? Or is CW a bit dead? -No offense intended, but is combat really that boring as I remember it to be? Just target a mob, and go afk untill its dead? I come from a game where I played a burglar (thats a kinda rogue type) with a +50% damage bonus when attacking from behind. So I was paying attention the whole time for every skill I used to get that bonus damage, so just standing there and watching seems kinda boring really. Thats it for now, Ill probably find out more questions later. :P ============ EDIT1: -What kind of weapon do you want in general? A fast weapon or slow weapon? -What defines your damage output? Only the +strength, or other things as well? -Is it normally accepted to play a female char as a male? In other games Ive played, it was accepted as normal roleplaying to play both male and female chars (and sexual undefined dwarfs). I started to play LotRO as a male elf, but he was just very ugly, so after that Ive come used to playing female chars. Now, the community in LotRO was a lot different then in RS (the avg age of people I played with was around 25), but I dunno how it is in a much younger community like RS. ==== EDIT2: Sorry, that was the wrong category. Thnx for moving mod.
