Questions from a returning player

Recommended Posts

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.

No i wish.

 

 

 

-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?

 

Depends how long ago but i think santa's are being dumped right now by merchanters.

 

 

 

-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?

 

 

 

Full torags/neitiznot helm whip obsidian shield/defender, dragon boots(climbing boots if you cant afford), obby cape/teamcape, barrow gloves(recipe for disaster quest)/vambraces/combat bracelet, ring of wealth,amulet of glory

 

 

 

-Any other stuff that is recommanded to do? Im kinda overwhelmed as I have no idea really. Except for quests.
Quests and read some updates

 

 

 

-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?

 

I think Castle wars is kinda dead but im sure a few people will be their on the world

 

 

 

-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.

Depends what boss you kill eg if you solo bandos you have to pay attention or your dead.

 

 

 

-What kind of weapon do you want in general? A fast weapon or slow weapon?

 

Fast but consistant hits, and if your pking a good special weapon(eg dragon claws which hits 4 at once and max's around 70 hp and has 2 quick specials, or a dragon dagger/granite maul)

 

 

 

-What defines your damage output? Only the +strength, or other things as well?

 

Strength manages your max damage attack is how often you hit it

 

 

 

-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.

 

I guess but im a guy and i play a guy character.
