It's been a busy week. I hit level 70 and respec'd for the umptenth time. Healing PUGs just wasn't working for me. I went back to Shadow and solo'd the rest of the way. For the small group quests I just spammed for help in the vacinity. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't. When I couldn't get help or join a quick group for the elites, I just moved on. I'm not sure what next. I got my Enchanting to 356 and my tailoring some where around there too. I'll probably see if I can find a raiding guild now and check that out.
I've also been playing the LOTRO beta. My opinion is that it's pretty good so far. The graphics are appealing and it performs well. The only time I've had lag is in the main towns when there are lots of players. Given that it's beta, there are some bugged mobs and quests but not many. Similar to what I did with EOF, I tried several different classes and three races. It was pretty easy to find my favorite from among them - Captain and Lore Master.
I can see some of the classic Turbine touches in the game that are fond experiences of AC2 like the lore vignettes and instanced quests. Then there are some things missing - the music really sucks. It adds nothing to the game what so ever and some of the audio associated with the animations are over the top and annoying.
More when I have time...
