Yay! I had success using Steam to download LOTRO and there I was, floating through Middle Earth once more.
I really liked the horse mount I have. Really nicely animated. He has a name I chose myself, not some bizarre randomly generated name.
The music remains some of the best in game music anywhere.
My time was spent completing a couple of quests to get a feel for the interface and combat again. I cleared anything older than the area I'm in from my quest log, and dumped any group quests I found. It appears you can have 43 quests in your log which is very generous, very nice.
I'm having trouble locating the creatures I need to kill for a task. I wonder if I should cancel that and see if the quest NPC offers it again or if he offers a new one. I'd hate to think the drop rate is so exceedingly low that I just didn't get the item I needed because of that sort of issue. and I haven't another way that I see to verify I'm killing the right creatures.
Frick. I forgot to pick up my loot from the handy dandy loot bag that gathers your stuff but doesn't stuff your inventory. Eek.
Note: Aha, it turns out the quest items were in my loot bag. I need to pay attention to what I loot in the chat window so I can see if I'm on the right track and in the right place.
