Are there any gamingtrend guilds operational for WoW still?

PVP or PVE?

The Wanderers are semi GT/OO, Im in that one on the Whisperwind server. The biggest problem with the guild is that it is full of high lvl toons and not very many low level people are playing.

Since there seems to be some interest in a GT LOTRO get together I thought I would start this thread for posting your toon names and servers, mine are:

Hanton: lvl 47 Warden
Kiniki: lvl 10 Rune Keeper

Both on Elendilmir

I have XP service pack 3 installed, and for some reason I cannot see any icons on my desktop. One day they just disappeared. I also can't create a drag box on the desktop. I create new desktop icons and they don't appear. Other than that problem the PC works good. I can change my desktop background and that still doesn't make the icons reappear. Any ideas?

Thinking about giving it a whirl again from the start.

I started a newbie three weeks ago and I have never had a problem finding a group when I need it. In fact most groups fill up and if someone drops out it is usually pretty easy to find a replacement. Of course this may vary by server. But on Eledilmir it;s pretty easy.

Elendilmir is the server of choice. My toon on there is Hanton.

Good news. The Mayor isn't dropping the case. I can only hope that since this happened to an elected official he can keep the heat on the cops. Cops need to reform their Drug War SWAT tactics and this kind of publicity is the only way it will happen.

Quote
Calvo, who said he's become increasingly concerned with the tactics officers employ in drug warrants, had also requested copies and reports from other searches the county has done in addition to his own.

Beyond the obvious paramilitary police BS that went on here, this case really shows that this sort of thing can happen to ANYONE and as a society we should not tolerate it. For some reason the Drug War has made it OK for our Police to dress up and act like commandos in a war zone and then treat the people they are supposed to protect as the "enemy". It's scary and un-American.

Hate to say it, but anti-aliasing isn't even there for them to enable. I'm with you on wishing Nintendo had included it.

Are you sure? I mean we have had AA technology going back to the freaking Geforce 256 (or whatever it was called) and the Voodoo 3. If ATI didn't even include it at all on their chip I would be surprised.

Everybody in my section of work hasn't seen A Christmas Story. How the hell has anyone missed that movie? THe one guy had never even heard of it?  eek

..."Ragile... it must be Italian", " I think that says Fragile"...

I am really considering going to the museum this year around Christmas time.

http://www.achristmasstoryhouse.com/

I was just there on Saturday. My Wife is really in to the movie and she loved it. You can take a tour of the house, there is a separate museum and a separate gift shop. The whole thing took about an hour to tour. I wouldn't recommend going to Cleveland just to see the house, but if you are in the area any way then it's a fun little stop. The odd part is that it is literally in the middle of a neighborhood. So it is surrounded by residential houses. And there is a bar/restaurant within 100 feet of the house. It's weird.

I have an old HP laptop. It's a 900 Mhz Celeron with 256 Megs. It has a 20 Gig HD, a DVD/RW drive. I run XP on it. The biggest problem with it is that the battery runs out in about an hour of unplugged time, once plugged in it is good though. Let me know if you're interested.

OK - I'm pretty much back in full-swing with LOTRO.  Of course, now I have the exact same problem I always have in MMO's.  I love the class I am playing until I group with another class and watch them do their stuff.  Which causes me to want to play their class.  Until I see another class do something awesome, which makes me want to play their class.  It's a never ending circle of "the grass is always greener" that I suffer from in no other aspect of my life other than choosing MMO character classes.  Seriously, just go ahead and add onto the pile of "You are a total nerd" tokens I am accumulating by my computer desk.

Also, now that I've had more time to spend with the Warden (currently lvl.18), I have come to the following conclusions:
1.  One of the most fun solo classes I've ever played in an MMO.
2.  Other than 'semi-tanking' and above average dps - he doesn't exactly offer the group anything special.  He is a "selfish" class in terms of group play.
3.  His gambit system offers more flexibility to the way he plays as he levels higher and gets more options.  In other words, he just gets more fun to play as time goes on.  He can "change" his role in a fight literally during the fight.  Pretty damn neat.
4.  He plays "fast".  I don't know how to explain this except to contrast it with something like the Loremaster.  The Warden wades in and just goes to work.  Bam-Bam-Bam-Gambit!  Bam-Bam-Gambit!  Bam-Bam-Bam-Gambit!  Great fun.

 


My Ward is up to lvl 23 and at lvl 22 you get a really kick ass DPS attack, it uses sword ,shield, sword, then i's a three hit combo attack for about 50 each hit. I can down most lvl 22s with a knock down spear, then a crit strike, then follow up with the 3 hit gambit. By that time they are mostly dead.

depth and variety of PvE content and places to adventure in, along with a generally helpful and relatively mature community. So for me, it's the place to be.

I agree with that statement about LoTR 100%. I would also add in that it has a better storyline and quests associated with the storyline, than any other MMO I have ever played. This is thanks in large part to the Book system. I love the fact that they still have a TON of more content they can add to the game. Rohan, Gondor, Mordor, all of that needs to be added and will probably take several expansions to do so.

Sounds good to me. I am wondering if Javelins are a woodworking skill or a weaponsmithing skill? If they are woodworking, I can make you javelins.  Well, if you were on Elemendril anyway.  tear

Fishing is just a hobby and AFIK the fish aren't really worth keeping. I think there was some player talk of making them at least modest food buff items (maybe equivalent of basic rations) so the hobby would have a little utilitarian value.

Can you see if you can make me a javelin for my 15 warden?

The Warden can use just about every single handed melee weapon right away. In theory it's supposed to be best with Spears (javelin has its own separate slot for tossing), but I've not to Level 6 seen any spear-specific melee skills.

There is a Gambit I think is unlocked at 6 or 7 that looks like it is designed for a spear. But im not sure if it requires it. You have to hit the shield then attack combo, then the gambit activates.

What's your Warden's name? I will look you up tonight. I should be on a good bit after work.
