Character Screenshot Thread 7: Wrath of the Age of Heroes...of the Rings. Online.

Oh like you come to these threads for the creative titles.

Even though Wrath has me on a leash, thought I'd post a pic of my retired LOTRO character, in honor of the game releasing it's first expansion :)

I still stand by my opinion that LOTRO has the single-best skybox of any MMO on the market.

    I'd be inclined to agree. That's an MMO field I'd want to lie down and watch clouds in.

    You know the screenies of LOTRO has always made me want to play it, I just can't seem to get into the game...I must be missing something.

    This makes me a bad person, I know, but I've never liked Middle-earth much. LotRO was a good game, but between the lack of intergrated PvP and setting, I couldn't get that into it.

    :^: Exactly.

    That's also part of why I didn't *do* anything in LotR other than wander around and look at things.

    Out of curiosity, how hard is it to get gear that looks like the one on the character in the first shot?
    I mean I'd really like to enjoy LOTRO but dang if I don't want to grind through another MMO just to be like "thats my character, and he looks bad-ass"

    LoTRO (Pre-moria. The graphics and lighting changed a little after it came out):

    Something I have in common with my character: He blinks every time a picture is taken. Also, I need to find some better gloves and boots that go with that outfit.

    This game was pretty awful, but it was the best thing ever back in high school. Especially when I had 5 or 6 friends in the game who played together regularly.

    Most of that outfit is purely cosmetic with no stats, which you can get at level 20.

    is there a equipment tab just for appearance wear? like there is in EQ2?

    Yep, you get it at level 20.

    the shoulders are some cloth cloak, the coat thingie is a cosmetic thing with no stats, and the rest is probably random stuff. You don't need to keep the items -- you can drag them to the proper cosmetic slot and then get rid of them.

    Here's a cosmetic outfit my guardian had:

    If not for the cosmetic tab, I would like like this:

    Stylish. (Edit: A nice thing about Moria is that once you reach Level 20 on one character, all of your characters have access to the Cosmetic Tabs no matter what level they are. Now you no longer have to look like Aquaman in blue Moon Boots at Level 7.)

    That first screenshot was taken a week or two ago. I bought a new weapon since then. I'm also not too fond of my new halberd, so I didn't bother to take a new picture with it.

    Edit: I still have the halberd that I was wearing in the first picture. It has a lot of sentimental value, and I'm hoping that a future expansion of the game will have a feature that lets you display weapons in your house. I doubt it will happen... but if it does, I would hate myself if I no longer had the Polished Gondorian Halberd.

    Also that is the Mutation, as it is called.

    I need to get to 40 so that I can have 5 trophies. I have 3 Mutation trophies and that camelot one. I am putting two of those eyes on each side of my shoulders.

    So I will have 2 eyes looking at you in front, and 2 in back.


    I see ALL.

    You need to get them from bestial tokens btw.

    If Second Life allowed you to import meshes, I'd be all over it. But as long as you can only use sculpties and regular prims, I'm sorry no.
    The furries don't bother me.

    You'd be surprised at what some people have been able to do with just sculpties.

    Actually I recall Radd from the forums here making a Metroid Space Pirates avatar that looked great. It was made up of sculpties but used in such a way that did not look like someone wearing gloves and a hat.

    Blizzard are masters of texturing. The shoulders look like they have way more polygons than they actually do and it even looks bump mapped, which the game definetly is not. It's very impressive.

    Definately hope they plan on doing a graphic overhaul on the characters...it's starting to show it's age now. Just look at the difference between the blood elves and draenei compared to the rest of the races. Even that was two years post release and the difference is amazing.

    One of the cooler things in Northrend, amazing enough is that I actually had a use for this Harpoon launcher again after the quest. An elite mob in Howling Fjord was bugged and it was following me across the map but I managed to escape it with the harpoon gun.
